Wrap-Up

September Wrap Up

monthly-wrap-up

So I ummed and ahhed about whether or not to start doing monthly wrap-ups on the blog but have eventually decided that in an effort to keep my blog more organised, to keep on top of challenges and to do a nice re-cap of the month for you all, that I would do them :-). Therefore, this post will be set out like my weekly highlights post, split into headings in an attempt to keep everything organised easily :D


Monthly Highlights

Woah! How in the hell is it nearly October already? I swear it was the end of July like… yesterday? So.. if you haven’t guessed yet, September was a month that flew by! The reason for this is because I have been incredibly busy with work and doing social things and keeping myself fit and healthy! Of course, I’ve really been enjoying the busy-ness of my life because I’ve never been a person who can handle just well… sitting still, but it has made it difficult to keep a handle on my blog.
But, I think the beginning of September wasn’t too slow and I am certain that my blogoversary went really well which is pretty awesome if I do say so myself!
I have a LOT of posts to do for the month of October and so I’m really starting to think that I’ll be blogging more regularly for a while! *fingers crossed anyhow*

My top three favourite posts I wrote this month are;
Author Backlists
Top Ten Tuesday; Books I’d Love To See As Movies
Faye’s Guest Post; Favourites

And don’t forget to have a look at ALL the posts I had go up to celebrate my blogoversary!
Blogoversary Wrap-Up

There were another few bookish events I went to this month which were really great fun and I have a few more lined up in October too!

I read nine books this month! Which is more than I’ve read in a while so I’m incredibly happy about that! I’m still behind on my goodreads challenge but I think the chance of me reading 120 books this year is very slim! But I’m okay with that because I have still read a lot of books!


Favourite Book

geek girl 2 I adored this book SO MUCH. It was the perfect book that I needed at the time that I read it as well. It was really easy to read but one that I got so incredibly emotionally invested in as well. I felt for the main protagonist, I wanted to comfort her, and I just wanted to make everything go right for her. I devoured this book quickly and when I wasn’t reading it, I was hoping that I could just jump straight back into it. And when I finally got to the end – which I really loved, by the way – it felt like a piece of me was missing. I wanted more. I STILL want more and I know that I simply cannot wait for the next book in the series! I am stunned by the amazing talent in Holly Smale – although I should have known because she is an incredible person – and am just so glad I got around to reading this book! Look out for a longer review soon!
