Can you believe that it’s October 1st already? This past month has been a whirlwind of activity for me. I felt like I became a real adult because I’m taking care of a baby girl who turned one month, bought and moved into a brand new house, and that’s about it. I feel like all good things comes in threes (or at least when you are listing things out), so I guess I’ll come up with a third reason soon enough.
This month has been a better reading month for me. I am still 18 books behind schedule (and that’s even lowering my Goodreads Challenge number to 75!). It seems as soon as I finish a book and the number goes down to 17, the next day it is back to 18 (lol). Hopefully, I’ll be able to catch up and actually read 75 books by the end of December!
This month I read:
- Just Listen by Sarah Dessen
- Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
- The Language of Thorns:Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic by Leigh Bardugo
- The Giant Slayer (The Grimm Chroncicles #7) by Isabella Fontaine and Ken Brosky
This month by book haul was a little crazy, I said I was only going to buy The Language of Thorns and One Dark Crown by Kendare Blake. Well, I ended up buying a bunch more than that. Here is a pic below:
This month (although I already bought one book) my plan is to not buy any books until the new year. I really need to slim down my TBR shelves, it is now overflowing. But, if I happen to find a copy of A Darker Shade of Magic by VE Schwab then I am definitely buying it! I need it in order to start the trilogy, and actually a brand new cover was released on Tuesday so I might have to get that one in order to get all of the bonus content! I just wish it was white like the rest of the series so that it won’t stand out on my shelf.
This month I plan on reading:
The bottom three books came from a recent LitCube live sale purchase, so I am curious to see how these retellings stack up against the originals.
How was your October? What do you plan on reading this month?
