Summer Recap

                                        (my stack of books from this past month.)
Hello everyone!
I am finally home and am so happy to be back in my great little city. (Although the heat here is pretty intense right now) I traveled for a missions trip in Russia for two weeks, and then met my family in Colorado before doing a horse driving camp in Canada. After visiting family and friends along the way, a month later I am about to dive into my senior year of school. Though I've been attacking my reading list pretty heavily this year, I think it might slow down a bit, but we'll see. I finished my Goodreads Reading Challenge of 100 books. (The only downside of the website, is that it doesn't do re-reads. It's got everything else though) I've probably reread about 10 other books that were already in the 100, but it was because they were so good! :) I am also doing the Go Teen Writers 100-for-100 writing challenge. Write 100 words a day (or more) for 100 days straight. Although I haven't been exact every time, the main goal is to write everyday.  I tried to do Camp NaNoWriMo, but I was traveling, so that was a bit hard. I was writing by hand, so I only got around 5,000 when I was aiming for 20,000. 
I will have some book reviews coming, as well as some spotlights, so have a good rest of the week and enjoy the pictures!
