February-August 2018 Monthly Wrap-Up: Books & Freelance Work

Updates, Monthly Wrap-Ups · September 19, 2018, Wednesday

Welcome to my February-August 2018 monthly wrap-up! 🙂

Because I haven’t posted an update since February, I thought it would be good to merge the wrap-ups together into a single post. (September’s will go with October’s the next month.)

Here’s a brief personal life summary before I dive deep into projects, readings and freelance work news:

Monthly Wrap-Up


Apart from one book in February that I read for my first The Books Brothers monthly challenge (note: this is an Italian group), I haven’t read a lot (or finished a book anyway) until May, which was the month when my reading muse woke up again and pushed me to read more.

What a nice sensation! I had missed it. 🙂

These are the books I read from February to August 31 in chronological order:

  1. Il mio inverno a Zerolandia by Paola Predicatori (Italian)
  2. Boy Meets Boy by David Levithan (Italian translation)
  3. La fattoria degli animali by George Orwell (Italian translation of Animal Farm)
  4. Lontano dal pianeta silenzioso by C.S. Lewis (Italian translation of Out of the Silent Planet, Space Trilogy #1)
  5. Sei donne che hanno cambiato il mondo by Gabriella Greison (Italian)
  6. Chiamami col tuo nome by André Aciman (Italian translation of Call Me by Your Name)
  7. Flatlandia by Edwin A. Abbott (Italian translation of Flatland)
  8. Fallen by Lauren Kate (Italian translation)
  9. Breastfeeding Without Birthing by Alyssa Schnell
  10. Accanto alla macchina by Ellen Ullman (Italian translation of Close to the Machine)
  11. A che servono i Greci e i Romani? by Maurizio Bettini (Italian)
  12. La manutenzione dei sensi by Franco Faggiani (Italian)

This is the book I have to finish reading:

Some of these books come from a huge book haul I gathered between June and July, but I’ll tell you more about that in another post.

You can follow my 2018 reading challenge on Goodreads to keep up with my readings and reviews.

Freelance Work

So many articles! I wrote seven just for Monitor Backlinks these months, all about different areas of SEO.

Here’s the list:

And a couple of articles for CoSpot’s Content Marketer blog, too:

Finally, WHSR published my two most recent articles and I’m so happy because I’m hardly working for this client anymore from now on. It’s been a long journey, I’ve been with them since 2012 and I hope we’ll collaborate again the future. 🙂
