September Wrap Up

September was an odd month for me. This is the last month that I had a bunch of things planned for the weekends. I had a wedding out of state, a clambake, work events and just random things. This weekend was supposed to be the busiest of them all with a visit from a friend but decisions were made that changed those plans.

I didn’t write nearly has many posts as I would have liked to mostly because I was so busy. But I did find myself writing more after work and realizing that I am not as tired anymore which is nice.

As for reading I hit my Goodreads goal this month! I have officially surpassed my 40 book goal! I have three months left this year and I am curious to see how far I go above that total before 2019 hits!

I also went on a bit of a book buying spree. Initially I ordered from Amazon, but after they yet again lost a package, I decided to go with ordering from Target. October will be a another buying binge because I know of a handful of books coming out that I cannot wait to read.

Books I read:


Enter the Enchanted (Everworld #3) – K.A. Applegate – I am really enjoying this reread.

Circe – Madeline Miller – This was a such a great book. Love the look at a character I knew next to nothing about. I bought Song of Achilles and I cannot wait to read it!

Hamilton: The Revolution – Lin-Manual Miranda, Jeremey McCarter – This gave me a whole new appreciation of this musical.

Aaru: Halls of Hel (The Aaru Cycle #2) – David Meredith – I was sent this for a review and it was interesting. Good look at the dark side of a utopian tech society.

Posts for this month:

Obsidio – The Illuminae Files #3 – Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff – Review

Books I bought:

Shows I watched:

british-baking-show

I started watching the Great British Baking Show on Netflix. This is the oddest show to me because everyone is just so nice and quiet and pleasant to each other. I am used to competition shows with yelling and disasters and dragging everything out. Instead this is just calm and fun to watch!

October will be a  fun month for TV for me because just about all my shows are back. I am particularly interested to see what Walking Dead does with Rick’s last episodes. Going to end up as whole different show hopefully.

What was your September like? Favorite book of this month?
