Top Ten Books on My Fall TBR List
In My Life
As you can probably tell, my reading time slowed down significantly this past month. Between becoming a full-time graduate student, searching for part-time jobs, working part-time jobs, and doing homework, I haven't had a lot of free time, and I just haven't felt as motivated to spend my little free time reading. Hopefully that will change once I have a set schedule again!
Outside of having no free time for reading, the other frustrating aspect about my life right now is that I have no free time for writing. I got to meet Sarah J. Maas, Susan Dennard, and Erica O'Rourke earlier this month, which was wonderful. Even more wonderful, however, was talking a bit with Susan and Erica about my love of writing. I left the event feeling invigorated and full of creativity, but unfortunately writing keeps getting pushed back on my priority list. I want to get back into it again sooner rather than later but it, like everything else, is kind of on hold while I get my bearings right now.
It's been quite the adjustment becoming a student and regaining that sort of mentality, but even though it's been exhausting, this past month has also been really exciting and I'm becoming more convinced that librarianship is the field I want to base my career around. So, definitely some good can be found in all of this.
How was your September?
