I can’t believe August is already over. Where in the world did the time go!? Here’s my little recap of the month, this time for my blog AND personal life!



  • I got engaged!! Shane proposed on August 5th, 2013 <3333 We still need to set a date so more wedding planning details to come!
  • I also bought a house! Shane and I moved in together on… August 5th, 2013 haha. He ended up proposing on our first night in the house together.


  • Number of Books Read In August: 6 (EEK. This was a slowwww month for reading thanks (or no thanks) to moving!)
  • Popular Search Terms:  “best friend to boyfriend” (and many various other search terms that lead to the Best-Friend-Turned-Boyfriend-Romance post… still my most popular post!), “the dream thieves review“, “chantress amy butler greenfield”
  • More Amusing Search Terms:how do i romance a friend?“, “books a nerd girl reads” (huzzah!!),  “how to turn into a book addict” (You’ve come to the right place, my friend.), “why are people suprised that i have my jacket off” (To be honest, I’m not quite sure.)
  • Most Referrals (Non-Twitter/FB/Wordpress, etc): Alexa Loves Books, The Grown-Up YA, The Broke and the Bookish —- Thank you, ladies!!!
  • Where My Blog Most Often Leads You (Non-Goodreads/Internal Links, etc): Gone Pecan, Just A Couple More Pages, Tripping Over Books (AWESOME blog friends. You guys have great taste!)

    Congratulations on your Engagement!! That’s pretty exciting! Have you decorated your new house yet? Ohhh I’m so glad you posted a link to your Dream Thieves review! I saw Candice mention you in her review, but I couldn’t find it on your blog. I’m off to read it now!

    Have a great Labour Day Weekend!

    Whoa, August looks like it was super busy(but exciting!) for you. Congrats on the house AND the engagement. That’s a lot for one day!!
    It’s so cool to see your Goodreads update progress(plus, it just reminded me I need to check mine, haha).

    First off, I didn’t know YOU GOT ENGAGED! Congratulations. Coincidentally, August 5 was my two-year anniversary, and I thought FOR SURE we were getting engaged that night. No dice for me but I’m beyond happy for you. Hooray!

    Also, great recap. Lots of goodness all around. I love your listing of search terms that led to your blog. HILARIOUS. : )
