I felt like this is the first month in awhile that I’ve been a decent blogger. I’ll never be a Post Everyday type of blogger, but I was a little more consistent. Oddly enough, my stats seem to be worse this month than the months where I hardly post anything. Hpmh. Of course the most exciting news of the month is that I went to one of Leigh Bardugo’s book tour stops for Crooked Kingdom!

Looking Forward to October:
I am soooo ready for fall! I want to start brainstorming ideas for NaNoWriMo in November – I’m determined to win again this year (unlike last year which was a huge crash and burn). I have three reviews already drafted and ready to go. I’m really excited for one of my favorite books of the year, This Adventure Ends, to be out (my review for that will be up on Monday).
I’m thinking about going on a Twitter Hiatus until after the election is over. I’m so tired of the hate being spewed – from both sides of the aisle. If I don’t take a step back I think I’m going to end up unfollowing half the people I’m following. I recently saw an author I really like tweet a video that was a straight up lie (I saw the actual footage live that the clip cuts off) and it was retweeted nearly 1,000 times. There were a few comments on it saying how misleading it is, but she never responded or acknowledged it. And you know that is just one example of the media being misleading (on both sides) and people just believe it without ever investigating further. It makes me feel sick. I urge you to support your candidate (if you have one) without spewing hate at the opposite side. Hate begets Hate, people. Rise above it. And that will hopefully be the first and last thing I say about politics on this blog.
