Month in Review September 2018 + #Booktube Talk
Hey, there (nearly) October! Another end of another month brings with it yet another Finding Wonderland Month in Review recap-y thing aka our Month in Review September 2018. Let’s share all the September 2018 recap thoughts. But first let me just have a moment to process September’s impending disappearance. *internal screaming*
Let’s get our recap thoughts on!
Ciao, September 2018. Bonjour, (almost) October!
Here we go.
In case you didn’t notice, there are changes around Finding Wonderland. We’ve moved. I do plan to write a more thorough blog post about this, but in the meantime, I do want to let you know about updates.
If you’re a reader and you’d like to receive updates from this little space (THANK YOU to everyone who does want to), you’ll have to re-follow the blog. Or those who keep up to date via GFC will.
You can do this in one of three ways.
- Sign up for the RSS Feed (once daily, at most, email update)
- Sign up for the content update list (this one only goes out 1-2 x a month, at most)
- Copy + Paste the URL into your Blogger dashboard via the “manage reading list” button (this option is if you’re old-fashioned – like me, and you still use the dashboard)
- Follow via BlogLovin’ (the feed details I’m still trying to figure out, so that’s not being updated just now)
*Please note, to receive any of these, you will have to “confirm” via email, and this email may be sent to your junk folder
»Favorites & News from September 2018«
1: Amazon Prime’s Jack Ryan | Finally watched Jack Ryan (after the August wrap up mention) and really do like it. It’s definitely more “adult” than the films, and is a slow-mover, but the pace picks up. Note: It’s rated TV-MA.
2: Blog | This space is a big work in progress because of all the re-formats that now have to happen. My sincere apologies. I’m trying to fix some every day, but going through nearly 2,000 backlogs of reviews is going to take a while. Thank you in advance for the patience and my apologies for those of you who may read the archive reviews.
3: JustReadBox Rep | I had the chance to rep for JustReadBox this past month. Inside its tiny blue box there’s a multitude of fun goodies you might not see in most boxes, check out my unboxing post to see the fun. For October, use my code RISSI10 to receive 10% off.
4: Netflix | Recently I did add a few new things to my Netflix binge since my last Netlix binge article so many in addition to Amazon Prime (part one), a new Netflix post needs to appear.

what else am I writing?
Silver Petticoat | This month, I love basically everything I watched to feature on Silver Petticoat – and that’s one of THE best feelings for a writer. Plus, aside from what I had the chance to contribute, I feel like August was an epic month for new content on Silver Petticoat. Here’s a recap look at what I contributed to the amazing webzine.
Articles and Lists | Wrote some preview articles for the fall Box Office 2018 and Hallmark’s Fall Harvest line up. Also, I write a Romantic Moment feature for Forever My Girl, an underrated, but super sweet romance. For National New York day, I collaborate with the amazing SP team and put together a list of 15 (+) romances set in New York. Oh, and just for fun, I write a piece about the better man in the Hart of Dixie love triangle between Lemon, Lavon and George.
TV Recaps | None!
As always, thanks to the editors of Silver Petticoat and my fellow contributors! Working with you all is always fun.
