August Highlights

So, August is over and summer is ending, and we have another monthly highlights post!  I apologize for this being posted so late- I was teetering between posting it today or on Friday, but decided to do it today since I have something already planned for Friday. ;)   So let's dive in!





~ADVENTURES AND HIGHLIGHTS~


//Enjoying the last days of summer! Even though I haven't done a whole lot this summer, I have gotten some chances to relax and just slow down, and that's been nice.

//Starting school and other activities again. Lots of busyness and fun!

//Beta-reading for some lovely people. Hopefully I'm getting better at it!

//Writing poetry. I've been writing a lot of poems lately, and am excited to share some with you through some more Tuesday Thoughts posts soon!






~BOOKISH THINGS~

I read 6 books this month, which for me is a rather low count. Anyway, I enjoyed the ones I did read and have some new books I'm looking forward to reading this month.


Books read in August: 6
Please excuse the weird format of these pictures! Hopefully you can tell which ones they are. :)

I liked all of these books pretty well. My favorite was The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, though. Narnia is pretty awesome. ♥  I didn't really have a least favorite, although Women in Science wasn't quite what I was expecting. It was still a nice read, however, and you can read my review of it here. I also will have a review of Where Hope Prevails coming soon.

I'm currently reading The Horse and His Boy and Jesus Freaks  






~BLOGGING~

Ahhh... I read so many good posts this month! Here's a few that I especially enjoyed-

// Vanquishing Fears by Hannah P. 
// freedom by Julia Ryan 
// Monday Musings- Your Truth by Tane Hannah
// Stress, School, Schedules by Hosanna Emily


And in case you missed any, here are my blog posts from August:







~THINGS COMING UP~

//Fall! Fall is my favorite time of year- I can't wait for the pumpkins, the candles, the beautiful leaves on the ground, the spices.....

//Diving headfirst into school and activities again

//Seeing what adventures God has planned for us in September!


How has your August gone? What are you looking forward to in September? Comment below!

Thanks for reading!
//Emily

  4. I enjoyed reading about your highlights from the past month, Emily. :)
    I have also read “The Door in the Wall”, but it was a long time ago. I’m hoping to read the Return to the Canadian West series sometimes, but I want to finish the Canadian West series first. ;)
    I love fall too! It’s probably my favorite season. :D

      That's neat that you've read those too. I, er, actually haven't read the Canadian West series yet. *cough* But I'm going to as soon as I can! I've liked the ones I've read so far, though. :D

      Fall is a great season, isn't it? <3
