September 2019 Recap and Hiatus Announcement

In September the library I work for had Elizabeth Vargas come as part of our author/speaker series. I had never heard of her before, but she’s apparently very popular. She talked about her journey of anxiety and addiction (as told in her book, Between Breaths). She was a really good speaker and we had one of the highest turnouts we’ve ever had for this type of event. There was a special reception beforehand that I ended up having to work at because the person who usually plans those was out of town. I mostly stood in the corner checking people in and being awkward, but my boss eventually made me join the party – where I stood farther away from the corner being awkward.

Hiatus Announcement

I’ve decided it’s time to take a little break from blogging and social media, so I will be signing out for most of October. I do have two reviews scheduled during that time, but other than that I don’t plan on posting anything. I’m also hoping to stay off of Twitter and Facebook for the month. I will still be on Goodreads, though. I hope you all have a great October full of good reads and Pumpkin Spice everything. See you in November!

  1. I’ve taken a bit of an unintentional hiatus during September! Still catching up on old posts and whatnot. Hope you have a lovely break – maybe we’ll actually get some fall weather to enjoy??

    • Thank you! I am really hoping for some nice fall weather. I’m quite sad to see that tomorrow – on the first day of October – it’s supposed to be 90 degrees. 😦
      I’m going to try to get back into bullet journaling again. I have really dropped the ball on it since the beginning of the year.

  2. Enjoy your break! I’m definitely following your lead and schedule my own break for November. 😉 I’m looking forward to read The Family Upstairs now. xx

  3. Hi Stephanie – I’m glad I saw this. I was wondering why I hadn’t seen any posts by you. But I’ve been so busy I’m only just today catching up on a couple weeks’ worth of posts. Enjoy your time off. Looking forward to chatting with you next month!

  4. Great post!

    You read so many books, that’s awesome! I haven’t been reading as much in the last few months, but I am now about half way through A Simple Favor. So far it’s really good. I can’t wait to see how the film holds up to the novel.

    Also, love The Good Place! So bummed this is the last season.
