August/September Wrap-Up: Reviews, Reading Challenges, etc.

I’m ashamed to say that it’s been so long since I’ve actually finished a book. I started Tower of Dawn when I left on vacation at the start of September and still have not finished it. Though, I’m only about 50 pages away from the end so fingers crossed I can finish it tonight! But anywho…. it seems as though my little reading slump bled over into a blogging slump as well this past month. So I’d like to apologize for the lack of posts during September and I promise that things should get back to normal this month. And holy smoke y’all, it’s already October!!!! We are officially into my favorite season and that means Thanksgiving is basically next weekend and then Christmas in two weeks. (I mean, obviously not really but it sure feels that way!) I may or may not already be hyped for 25 Days of Christmas on “Freeform”. I could literally watch How the Grinch Stole Christmas 100 times in a row and never get bored. #NoShame

How did your reading go during August/September? Were you able to read all of the books on your TBR? Did you read any new favorites? What book did you like the least? Did you do anything fun or interesting? Did you fall into a reading slump like I did? What do you plan on reading in October?

  1. Great wrap-up! Out of all the books listed, I’ve only read Frozen Tides & Love & Luck! I really want to try & get to Renegades & Spinning Silver though! 😍💕✨📚 & as for October, I really want to try & catch up on ARCs & recent releases from the past few weeks/months! ^_^

    1. Thank you so much! I definitely recommend Renegades. Spinning Silver was enjoyable but I think it was a tad over-hyped for me personally… I hope you are able to catch up on all of the books you want to read this month! 🙂

      1. Spinning Silver sounds like it’ll be a great read for my late fall/early winter TBR & yeah I agree–I started it & thought it was good it wasn’t as perfect as everyone said it was! But definitely want to try & finish it!💕📚 & Thanks so much, hoping I can catch up on all the books! 😭💕💕
