These posts are helpful for me to wrap my head around what I did in the previous month. Are they interesting to you? What do you enjoy about seeing wrap up posts?

August was a busy month on trishajennreads. I spent a lot of time blogging and I’m pretty happy with the content I’ve been able to share with you.

In case you missed it

Lots of fun book reviews popped up this month.

As usual, I also participated in my usual memes:

The most significant post on trishajennreads in August was a very personal post.

In May, I shared the exciting news of my pregnancy with you.  And last week, I shared that my pregnancy ended in stillbirth.

Music has been helping me through this journey. I shared some of the songs that I’m listening to on repeat in a post called Earbuds: Songs that have been inspiring me lately.

What was in my August 2018 book haul?

I participated in a little retail therapy in August…

And I received a few books from some generous folk too

What did I read in August?

I read a lot of books this month – 14 finished in total. And it’s all thanks to Bout of Books 23 (and graphic novels…). Take a look at the Bout of Books tag to see all my posts about the read-a-thon. I read all of the books I received, plus a couple of books that were already on my shelf. I admit, I get caught up by the shiny new books and let the TBR fall to the wayside…

I’ve caught up on my Goodreads goal! I’ve read 66 books this year toward my goal of 100 books in 2018. I’m back on track and might just make it. If I do, I may make next year’s goal much smaller so I don’t have the stress of trying to reach it…something to think about.

Do you set a reading goal for the year?
