As September comes to a close and the weather gets increasingly wet and windy (excuse me, where was my final mini-heatwave of the summer??), I’m pulling my fluffy jumpers out of the wardrobe and looking back at the books I read this month.
I’d planned to read a lot of ARCs during September, and, somehow, I actually managed it. The books originally on my TBR were:
And the books I actually read were:
I read 5/7 of the books I’d planned and managed to get to all the ARCs I’d planned. I, for one, am shocked. I enjoyed Check, Please! so much that I had to carry on with the second series, and I’ll be starting the third ASAP. I’m disappointed I didn’t manage to get to The Gentleman’s Guide, again, but I know it’s because I haven’t had much time for ebooks this month, and I don’t have a physical copy. Hopefully October will be the month where I finally pick it up.

Books That Have Changed Our Lives: Part I
Books That Have Changed Our Lives: Part II
I asked my Twitter followers which books had changed their lives, and got so many amazing responses, that I had to split the post into two parts to share them all.
Series I’m Not Going To Finish
I wrote about the series that I’m just not going to finish. Sorry, not sorry.
TBR Unhaul: Books I’ve Recently Removed From My Goodreads TBR
I actually UNHAULED some books from my TBR??? What a rarity.
Blogger Recognition Award
I was nominated by the lovely Jasmine @ReadingWithJax for the Blogger Recognition Award, and in term nominated some excellent bloggers.
Where did this month even go? It seems to have passed far more quickly than any other. I had a pretty quiet month because I’m gearing up to go to Sweden in October, so I’ve mostly been chilling out and saving up.
- My boyfriend and I went on a daytrip and had fun shopping and I took him to this great little vegan cafe, which he really loved.
- My parents went on holiday this month, so I had the house to myself. Naturally, I listened to very loud music and stayed up late watching a tonne of k-drama episodes. (Nobody can ever accuse me of not knowing how to ‘party hard’.)
- I started planning some potential novel ideas and got very excited about them on Twitter. Even though I don’t know if they’ll go anywhere and may end up scrapping them.
- I baked a lot this month, and perfected a couple of new vegan recipes.
