August Highlights

Bonjour, y’all!ย XD

Today is the last day of August, and tomorrow marks the first day of September. This summer has flown by! From writing camps to mountainous vacations, I’ve enjoyed every bit of it. I’m a little sad that summer is coming to a close, but I’m excited to see what God has in store for me this fall. ๐Ÿ™‚

| This Monthโ€™s Happenings |

-Participating in writing and photography contests-

I participated in three contests this year – Fantasy Literature Camp, Power of Writing Writing Camp, and Boring Into Beautiful Photography Contest. Contests like these are SO much fun! I always have a blast doing them. ๐Ÿ™‚

-Reaching 100 followers-

GUYS.ย I hit 100 followers!!! I am absolutely thrilled! Although I didย already haveย followers who readย my Blogger blog, I never thought I’d reach 100 so quickly! Thank you all SO much! ๐Ÿ˜€ (I plan on doing a big post and possibly a face reveal. ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

| Books I Read |

I only read three books last month, but I surely made up for it this month!

Deep Blue by Jennifer Donnellyย Writing Magic by Gail Carson Levineย In the Year of the Boar and Jackie Robinson by Bette Bao Lordย The Son of Sobek by Rick Riordanย The Name of This Book Is Secret by Pseudonymous Boschย If You're Reading This, It's Too Late by Pseudonymous Boschย This Book Is Not Good for You by Pseudonymous Boschย This Isn't What It Looks Like by Pseudonymous Boschย You Have to Stop This by Pseudonymous Bosch
via Goodreads

All of these books were good, but I especially loved Deep Blue and the Secret Series. I’ve been wanting to write my own mermaid story, so it was really cool to read one and see how the author crafted the world. The Secret Series was really creative and a fun read! Plus, who can resist a secret? ๐Ÿ˜‰
