Bookmark Lit Bulletin | August 2021

Posted September 16, 2021 / Bookmark Lit Bulletin, Features, Wrap-Ups / 2 Comments

BL headerThe Bookmark Lit Bulletin wraps up the last month in reading and what was on the blog, as well as what’s coming up next. You can check out my book haul, books read, posts shared, challenge updates, etc. You can read past bulletins here. If you’re looking for more personal updates, you can check out my Lauren Lately feature; it highlights my life events and non-bookish fun from the previous 30 days.

I read a number of cookbooks this month to get ahead and it sort of worked… but I still ended up reducing my reading challenge from 100 to 75. I don’t see myself succeeding this year and have no motivation to catch up from being 12 behind. Here’s a late ass recap of August since I’ve been lazy and busy.

Folks I have no reason to even try here anymore.


All of these are from last month because I did nothing but post TTTs and some reviews…

Workweek Lunch Program and Intuitive Eating | I’m working on getting out of diet culture and stop trying to look a certain way or lost weight, so I’ve been reading books about intuitive eating and joined a group coaching thing. I’m hope to do a post on Workweek Lunch and Intuitive Eating once I complete the book.

Podcast Recommendations | I found a ton more random podcasts over the past few months, which likely explains my bad reading life…

Five on Fridays or Currently | These are holdover options from last month… whoops?

Recent Fave Purchases | Another holdover from last month…
