Hello beautiful readers!
Can you believe September is gone? It feels like only last week the month was starting and now bye. Good thing is October is here and I love October. However, I hate that the days are going by so quick because I feel like I have not enough time to do everything I need to do and that stresses me out. Anyway, I’m going to stop my ranting here and let’s get to the wrap up!
September was a very weird month for me. I was participating in two readathons, the Bratz Readathon and Becca’s Bookoplathon, but I got into a reading slump so my reading didn’t exactly go as planned. During the whole month I wasn’t feeling that great mentally so I felt kind of weird too. Anyway, let me update you on a little bit of my life first.
The most important and memorable thing that happened this month was that I got back to work. I honestly didn’t want to go back because I was enjoying so much being at home, reading all day, wearing my pajamas all day long if I wanted to. Honestly, the six months I stayed at home, had been the best six months of this year. Well, only if we not take into consideration everything else that happened in the world during that time because otherwise, those six months were not that great.
But also, because of me having to go back to my old routines, I have been feeling strange. I don’t know how to describe this feeling but something is definitely off and I feel exhausted all the time, which results in me not doing all the things I need to do and I feel guilty and stressed. This is a like a vicious cycle.
On more exciting news, the NFL is back! This might be shocking to everyone since I hadn’t mentioned this before, but I love football. I am not a hardcore fan that knows every little detail about all the teams, but I enjoy watching the games. On Sundays, I spend almost all day watching football, it is so much fun!
So that pretty much sums up September in terms of my personal life. Since I went back to my normal life, the routines are back as well therefore I don’t have much to tell you. This is kind of sad, but oh well, it was bound to happen sooner or later.
Now in terms of reading, like I mentioned at the beginning of the post, I went into a reading slump for like two weeks and because of that it’s safe to say I failed at completing the two readathons I participated in. I managed to read 7 books, but honestly, the last two books I read I finished them in the last days of the month because they were romances, otherwise I would have read only 5.
The Weight of Feathers by Anna-Marie McLemore
This was a very interesting story because even when it’s set in the modern world, it had magic in it. I had a bit of a difficult time getting into it, but once I sat down and concentrate, I got hook into the story. This had more family drama than romance, so if you’re expecting swooning moments, you won’t get much of those.
Rhapsodic (The Bargainer #1) by Laura Thalassa
This one counts as my first read for the Bookoplathon, I got the prompt “dark cover” and as you can see, this book has a dark cover. I enjoyed this one. Desmond reminded me a lot of Rhysand from the ACOTAR series, which is a good thing. Overall, the book was a bit predictable but very enjoyable nonetheless. I hope to read the rest of this series very soon *reads the sequel two years from now*
Wonder by R.J. Palacio
This was the second book for the Bookoplathon. I got the prompt “disability rep”. I watched the movie first and because I liked it, I knew I was going to like the book as well. Of course we get to know the characters more and understand them better than in the movie. I am so happy I finally read this book, it broke my heart as much as the movie did.
House of Earth and Blood (Crescent City #1) by Sarah J. Maas
This was the third and final book I read for the Bookoplathon, but this one also counted for the Bratz Readathon since I had to read a book about an angel or with one on the cover and this book is full of lots of magical creatures, angels among them. As for the Bookoplathon I had to read a book Becca had recommended before aka one of her favorite books and House of Earth and Blood is one of them. I enjoyed this book so much and I can’t wait to read the sequel because I need to know if all the theories I’ve come up with are right or if I am just crazy and expect the worst.
Wicked Fox (Gumiho #1) by Kat Cho
This one counts for the Bratz readathon, I had to read a book with a pink cover. I liked this book, but I was expecting more. I felt kind of bored in the beginning but as soon as it picked up, it was hard to stop reading. There were times when it felt like reading a kdrama and I love korean dramas!
The Mistake (Off-Campus #2) by Elle Kennedy
I enjoyed the love story between Logan and Grace, but it wasn’t as great as the love story between Garrett and Hannah from the first book, The Deal. I’m happy I finally picked this book up, even when the books in this series can be read as standalones, it was great reading about the characters I met in the previous book.
Let’s Get Textual (Texting #1) by Teagan Hunter
This was a very easy and fast book to read. The love story was kind of silly, but Zach and Delia were fun and weird and cute. It was the kind of book I needed at the moment. I wanted to know more about all the characters, they seemed so interesting. The one character that stole the show was of course Marshmallow.
And that’s it for September. It wasn’t a very exciting month but it was good. I hope to be out of this reading slump early in October because if not, I guess I’ll just keep reading cheesy romances for the rest of the year lol.
Until the next post!
Happy reading 💙
