September Highlights

Wow. Somehow, it's the last day of September! I can't believe how fast it went by (again!).


-ADVENTURES AND HIGHLIGHTS-

//Diving head first into school and all those other fun activities! :)

//Lots of birthdays! The gift of another year to learn and grow is always amazing. 

//Actually starting an outline for a new novel.






-BOOKISH THINGS-

I read 10 books this month, which is probably about my monthly average. :D



I enjoyed all of these books pretty well. My favorites included Authentic Beauty, The Birthright, Tramp for The Lord,and The Horse and His Boy. Authentic Beauty is an amazing book that I highly recommend. And of course, you can't go wrong with a Narnia book! xD My least favorite was Story Genius, which was rather disappointing. You can see my review of it here.






-BLOGGING-

There were so many lovely posts that I enjoyed this month! But let's see if I can round up a few of my top favorites.

// When God is Silent by Kara Lynn
// Broken Yet Beautiful by Anna
// The Me You Want Me To Be by Mikayla
// An Undivided Heart by Hannah
// 31 Hugs by Jessica
// Kalem by Hosanna Emily
// I Need You  (a guest post by Megan)




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






-THINGS COMING UP-

// Actually, really starting fall. I know that it's already officially started, but where I live, it doesn't even feel like it until October!

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



How was your September? What are you looking forward to in October? Comment below!

Thanks for reading, and have a lovely weekend! <3

    2. I just finished my first book by Leslie Ludy...Set Apart Femininity! It was so amazing...convicting and interesting all at the same time. =) It never lost my attention, but it also showed me areas in my life that need to change. I really would recommend you read it! =)

    You read ten books this month? DUDE, that's awesome! I am majorly impressed because I'm sitting over here with my measley (?? <-- not quite sure how to spell that whoops) six. Oh well.

    I'm looking forward to plotting in October. I think. I've never plotted out a book before, so it will be an interesting experience. Hoping it'll turn out for the better! :D

    Have a happy October!

    1. YES! September totally flew by! It was a good month, though. :)

      Wow.. you read ten books this YEAR?! I wouldn't survive with that. xD I am a total speed-reader, so.. yeah. But everyone has their own speed, so IT'S REALLY OKAY if you only read 10 books in a year! *hands you more books anyway* ^-^
