August Books and Blog Wrap Up and September Goals!

Welcome to my monthly recap, where I recap the previous month and share my reading goals for the next month! I used to just strictly share what books I’d wanted to read and what I’d read but I am trying a new thing where I share all the posts from the month as well, in case you missed anything and want to catch up! Let’s see how this goes.

Honestly, all I’m really doing lately is rereading books. I keep remembering how good a book is and thinking, oh I should read that. Never mind that I have like 80 TBR books to read…

The Blogger/Author Relationship AKA Sara Had A Bad Experience and Has Thoughts

I’ve been blogging for over seven years now. I don’t get paid for this. I have never ever gotten paid for this. I’ve gotten perks here and there over the years because of my blog but those have become far and few between, especially once the popularity of BookTube and Bookstagram came into play and book bloggers sort of fell on the wayside. I’m not popular, I don’t even get ARCs as much as I used to and I didn’t get a ton to begin with. I have a small amount of followers – nearly 6,000 on the blog itself (compared to over 400K people who follow a very popular BookTuber), 2800 followers on instagram (150K for the BookTuber) and maybe 1400 on Twitter (74K). I obviously do not do it for money and popularity.

Fandom Foodie Friday {2} – Blue Chocolate Chip Cookies from Percy Jackson and the Olympians

Hello! Welcome to the Fandom Foodie Friday! If there’s one thing that always grabs my attention when I’m reading a new book or watching a TV show or movie, its the FOOD. Whether fictional or real, I often am left wanting to try ALL the foods. The only problem – I’m a terrible cook and an okay baker. So I’m taking recipes created by wonderfully creative people from all over the internet and figuring out if a newbie like me can figure them out!

Today, I made blue chocolate chip cookies, just like Sally Jackson would make them for her son Percy in Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson and the Olympians series!

Book Review: Pumpkinheads by Rainbow Rowell and Faith Erin Hicks

Deja and Josiah are seasonal best friends.

Every autumn, all through high school, they’ve worked together at the best pumpkin patch in the whole wide world. (Not many people know that the best pumpkin patch in the whole wide world is in Omaha, Nebraska, but it definitely is.) They say good-bye every Halloween, and they’re reunited every September 1.

Top Ten Tuesday – Books I’ve Read That I’d Like In My Personal Library 

The Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly challenge post previously hosted by The Broke and Bookish and now hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl. You can follow along for each weekly post here. This week’s post is all about those books that I’ve already read but I just don’t own in my library yet – whether they’re books I bought strictly in ebook or I own the ARCs but not an actual copy. There are a LOT of these so narrowing it down to ten is actually kind of hard!
