Go Wild 2018 Planner Conference Recap

In 2011, I purchased my first Erin Condren Life Planner. Fast forward a few years later and I started joining planner/planning related groups on Facebook. I found the group Planners Gone Wild and I've met so many amazing friends throughout the planner community because of this group.
The admins of the Planners Gone Wild group put on a huge planner conference once a year called Go Wild. In 2016, the first Go Wild was in New Orleans. I did not attend that one.
The admins knock the Go Wild planner conferences out of the park each and every time. Their attention to detail is impeccable. All of the sponsors, speakers, volunteers, entertainment, etc. do so much work for this event and it truly is a huge accomplishment that they pull off each year.
 In 2017, they had the conference in Nashville, TN and that was my first conference that I attended. Here is a blog post about that trip: Go Wild 2017. In 2018, they had the conference in Austin, Texas. I've been meaning to blog about that tr…

I'm linking up with Jana & Steph for the Show Us Your Books Link-up!
Big Sexy Love by Kirsty Greenwood

I liked this book. It wasn't my favorite book I've ever read (I rated it 3 stars on Goodreads), but I still enjoyed it. I want to read this author's other books so I added them to my TBR (to be read) list.
No Judgments by Meg Cabot

I adore Meg Cabot and her novels. She is one of my favorite authors. I really liked this book and would definitely recommend it, especially if you are a fan of Meg Cabot's work. I rated this book 4 stars.
A Spark of Light by Jodi Picoult

Jodi Picoult is another favorite author of mine. I really liked this book. Sometimes I can have trouble keeping up with her books because of all the different characters and how the chapters are told from the different characters' points of view. I rated this book 3 stars.
How Hard Can It Be? by Allison Pearson

I loved this book a lot. This is a sequel to the author's novel I Don't Know How She …

Books Read in August & September

August:
The Bookish Life of Nina Hill by Abbi Waxman

What I'm Reminiscing About...
New York during the Fall: my favorite season! Fall is definitely not the same in the South as it is in the North.

I recently had to leave my job that I love due to my pain (in my hip and back) which my doctors think is being caused by a pinched sciatic nerve. I loved my job, my co-workers, my students, and the center I worked at and I'm so very heartbroken that I had to leave.

Nothing that I want to talk about right now.
