September Wrap Up & October TBR!


Well September has certainly flown by and here I am with another monthly wrap up and a sneak peek at my October TBR. (OCTOBER?? how did that happen?) September was a great reading month. Although I found that I read a lot less during the week, I’ve had some seriously bookish weekends which has been great for helping me to relax after being back at work. I read a couple of books this month that I’m sure will feature in my top books of 2017 too! My goal was to read 8 books and I just surpassed it!


Number of Books read: 9

Number of Pages read: 3,244

The Arsonist  Freshers  Daughter of the Burning City

The Loneliest Girl in the Universe  Godsgrave (The Nevernight Chronicle, #2)  Cold Blood (Detective Erika Foster, #5)

Invictus  The Language of Thorns: Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic  Amelia Fang and the Barbaric Ball

Okay, now I SEE all those titles together I realise that I read really EXCELLENT books in September. Wow! I’m not sure if any month could ever top this one. Are you prepared for all the stars you’re about to see? (Also, loads of these are NetGalley titles and I’m really pleased I’ve managed to tick them off!)

Look at ALL THOSE STARS. I really did read some incredible books!


Godsgrave (The Nevernight Chronicle, #2)

Well this was a little tricky after looking back over all the books I read BUT I just couldn’t get this one out of my head. I adored this book and thought it was bloody marvellous (yes, that is a pun). I adore the characters, the plot, the badass female lead. Mia Corvere is the biggest badass around and I just love how fearless she is as well as her passion and loyalty. This was Nevernight turned up a few notches!

October TBR + Goals

Similarly to September I will be in work/school for most of October, although the end does dip into half term so plenty of books will be read then! Because of this I’m going to be realistic about how much reading I will manage without it feeling pressurised. I’m going to stick with my aim from last month and set myself a goal of 8 books.

Here are some books that are contenders to be read in October!

There's Someone Inside Your House  Warcross (Warcross, #1)  Otherworld (Otherworld, #1)

I’ve recently ditched the really strict TBRs I used to set myself and feel that I’m enjoying books much more because of this. To contradict this point, however, keep an eye out for my Halloween readathon TBR!

  2. Nice job on reading nine books! It definitely looks like you read so many amazing books this month! I’m currently reading Invictus right now. Or attempting to anyway, I keep getting distracted by other books that I pick up instead of finishing it. UGHH. Love your October TBR! I really want to read Warcross and I need to get my hands on There’s Someone Inside Your House ASAP!
