September went by so fast that I didn’t even realize today was going to be October 1st until last night. Oops.
September was a million times better than August! It was also a really busy month, however. I didn’t get through all of my TBR like I had hoped I would because school and work kind of took over my life. But I did get through all of the review books for NetGalley that I needed to. I breathed a giant sigh of relief once I did and then proceeded to ban myself from ever going click happy on there again 😂. We’ll see if that actually happens though haha. September was also my six-month blogiversary which was really exciting! If you’ve not yet entered the giveaway I’m hosting in honor of it be sure to check it out as there are only two weeks left to do so. ♥

I seem to have read books all over the rating spectrum this past month and so I think my favorite is obvious, Last Seen Leaving by Caleb Roehrig! That book is incredible guys. I can’t remember the last time I’ve been so into a book. It was gripping and gasp-worthy and the ending was really shocking. Seriously, if there is one book you read/buy in October it should be this one. I can’t wait to get my hands on a physical copy! I’m already planning to reread it.
This month it is a tie between both of the Q&A posts I did for my blogiversary. Everyone asked such fun questions and I loved answering them! Thank you again to all of the lovely bloggers who took the time to send me questions. ♥
I stuck to my whole only buy books you’re going to read in the near future book buying ban! (But then I spent money on candles, my first OwlCrate, and other bookish things so my bank is still weeping. 🙈😂)
The good thing is that most of the books I did buy were Kindle Daily Deals books so they were cheap and that makes me happy!

IT’S OCTOBER! I love October, not only because it’s my birth month, but because of Halloween. I have to admit that I didn’t always love it because when I was little I was terrified of people in costume so Halloween was my own personal nightmare brought to life. But now I can’t get enough of it! October means the weather finally starts to cool off a bit in Texas, all of my favorite childhood movies start playing on TV, and pumpkin carving.
Plus, there are so many incredible books being released this month! I’m excited. 😃
I’m going into October without a TBR. I have a general list of books that I want to read before the year is over so I think I’m going to be skipping actually making a TBR each month because, besides the few books I have to read for reviewing purposes, I’m just going to go with whatever I’m in the mood to read.
Currently, I’m reading Six of Crows and from there I’m going to jump into Crooked Kingdom. But after that who knows? I’m planning on Throne of Glass but it could change.
Again, don’t forget to check out my giveaway as it ends on the 15th of October! 😊
