Welcome to September’s Monthly Minutes at Midnight!
Here’s the deal: I’ll share the books I’ve obtained, posts of interest from others, giveaways I have happening, and just general random shenanigans. You know I love a shenanigan. Also, covers all link to Goodreads, because I am awesome. As always, I link up with the Wrap Up Round Up, too!
For Review/From Publishers:
Nothing this month!
Huge thanks to the publishers for these lovelies! I am so excited for all of them! I feel like I am growing as a person, this is less bad than usual!
Too tired to link!
Nothing this month!
Thanks to no one ♥♥ (heh)
Shenanigans Since Last Time:
I read 14 books this month. I started the month on fire, but then time. Still, not bad!
This has to be one of the best reading months I have ever had. At least 4 five-stars, and several more 4.5s. And not a crappy one in the bunch, woo!
Here are some of the loveliest/most entertaining/super helpful/just plain interesting posts I found this month!
- Beth @ Bethwyrm is wrapping up #Pirateathon
- AJ @ Read All the Things! discusses whether a book buying ban is right for you
- Anne @ Head Full of Books asks how you handle comments on your blog
- Marie @ Drizzle & Hurricane Books discusses changes in blog engagement
- Ronyell @ Rabbit Ears Book Blog shares some truly bananas images she has come across
- Sam @ We Live and Breathe Books discuses remembering (or not) junk from books
Fancy & New Since Last I Saw You!
I love looking at pretty covers! So here are some new ones that I have fallen in love with since our last update!
Pretty covers are pretty.
Things we need to talk about at this juncture:
- Guys I need help! This seems to be happening to me on several WordPress blogs (I reached out to Sam about it, as I thought maybe it was just hers, but then the same thing just happened to me on Marie’s cool zodiac signs post!), but when I try to comment, I get an error that says “nonce verification failed”. From my (ridiculously intensive) Googling, I… don’t know that there is anything I can do on my end? I have cleared cookies and caches, logged out and back in, tried private browsers, different browsers, different devices, hell, I have even gone to my mom’s house to use a whole different IP address! But nothing seems to work! I did see some mention of Jetpack potentially causing the issue, but who knows. Anyway please know that if you have a WP comment system and use the native WP commenting… well, I am very likely trying to comment but can’t and am sorry! If you have any ideas, do share with the class, please and thank you!
- We need more vacations and holidays. Like a month into school and I am so desperately in need of a break, my goodness. The US really has to cut the crap with the “we hate PTO” nonsense, honestly.
- There’s only 6 weeks til the elections! And pretty much no matter where you live (though some places more than others of course), this is some important shit. Especially in my
lovelygarbage heap state of Pennsylvania, the outcome of these races could simply not be more critical. Will we still have any rights come November 9th? That is literally how terrifying it is here. (Seriously- if you are unaware, check out this comparison, and you’ll see why I am terrified.) But the ramifications for the whole country exist, no question. Yes, I am telling you early to remember to check your registration status, because if I wait until next month, it will be too late for nearly everyone. So go here, see when your deadline is, and double check your status. It will take you 30 seconds, but could quite literally make a world of difference in your future.
