Bookmark Lit Bulletin | August 2022

Posted September 5, 2022 / 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 decided to challenge myself and read 7 books in 7 days (recap/lessons learned coming at some point…) and it was honestly great. I was always motivated to read because I was determined to finish, and really limited my phone scroll time! It’s no surprise that I managed to read 9 books in August as a result of this challenge, which got me back on track (kind of) for my reading challenge.
