Bookmark Lit Bulletin | September & October 2021

Posted November 4, 2021 / Bookmark Lit Bulletin, Features, Wrap-Ups / 0 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 took a little blog break through October so I didn’t bother recapping the shitty reading month of September. I thought I would include both months here to make it seem like my reading life is normal (it’s not, but maybe it’s getting there?). I managed to finish two books on my honeymoon so that was nice! I also DNFed a book over 50% and therefore included it in my reading numbers. Thank goodness for the new Cravings cookbook too! Either way, maybe I’m getting on track for my 75 reads this year. Christmas/holiday books will save me!

Finish the year strong.


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 previous months.

Recent Fave Purchases | Another holdover…
