September 2017 recap // Wrap Ups

Hey hey!

What’s up lovely people? Today I’m going to be sharing all the bookish and recap by month of September. It has been a bit of a stressful month for me trying to juggle between school, blogging and reading (spoiler alert: I failed at it) and now I get to share that with you! I have plenty to talk about so let’s begin!


Reading challenge

2017 Reading ChallengeI’m slowly making my way through my 2017 reading challenge. I’m still quite a bit behind so at this point, I’m not sure I’ll be able to complete it. Anyway, by the end of September I had read 46 books this year out of my goal of 80 books (58%). That’s 13 books behind. Good job me.



In September, I read 6 FULL novels. So no cheating with short stories this month (and I’m pretty happy with that). They were mostly satisfying reads but it was a pretty mixed bag of good and okay reads.

Books bought

I finally bought a new!! book!! This hasn’t happened in months and I just feel so happy that I’ve acquired a new book to add to my collection.


Books borrowed



(for next month)

I am planning to read a whole lot of books in October because it has FINALLY come to me attention that I need to stop slacking off and READ! I’ve calculated to get close to completing my reading goal this year, I need to read about 10 book each month. It’s going to be hard but I’m optimistic.

This is a good reminder that I really need to make some progress on my book reviewing considering these are books I reviewed a LONG TIME ago.


I have SO MUCH bookish news to share with you so if you haven’t heard…


So what happened this month??? I kinda feel into oblivion and you may have noticed the lack of  frequent blog posts. I don’t really have an excuse besides being overwhelmed with exams and writing papers, but thanks for sticking around.

I want to catch up with (most of) my book reviews. That’s a bit unrealistic considering I about about 23 books pending to be reviewed. (Yes I’m one of those people who wants to review every book I read). So it’s more like I want to write a few in comparison to the *cough* none that I wrote in September. I know I’ve been saying it for months, but I’m really actually committed to this in October. You all are holding me accountable.

I’ve realised how much I need to catchup on my reading if I want to complete my Goodreads reading challenge for 2017. So I’m aiming to do some hardcore reading in October and pretty much the end of the year. But I don’t know how that’s going to go considering the fact that I have exams in November…

In an effort to motivate me to read a hella amount, I’m participating in the Readathon By Zoë: HALLOWEEN EDITION (although I’m probably not going to be reading a ton of creepy/spooky books). This is a 24-hour readathon (!!!) created by Zoë @ readbyzoe happening on the 14th of October. I’m super pumped. (Also a tad scared). I’ve got a lot of books ready to read so let’s see how much reading I can fit in one day. And hope I don’t wake the next morning to regret the lack of sleep there probably will be.

And always, to finish off, I have my favourite quote of the month conveying my love for the one and only Nikolai:

“I hope you weren’t looking to me to be the voice of reason. I keep to a strict diet of ill-advised enthusiasm and heartfelt regret.”

– Ruin and Rising, Leigh Bardugo (Nikolai Lanstov)
