September is supposed to be the start of fall but it is 29 degrees Celsius as I am writing this post! I just want to be able to wear a comfy sweater while drinking a cup of tea and reading a good book, but it is way too hot out for that! Apparently 5 books a month is what I am averaging these days, and I am pretty happy with that. I have been really happy with the books I have been reading lately as well! I also want to mention that I am half way through Stalking Jack the Ripper and it is amazing so far!
I also reached 700 followers in September and I want to take a moment to thank everyone who follows, likes and comments on my posts! When I started this blog back in May, I never expected to be able to connect with so many amazing people! I truly appreciate you my fellow book lovers!

Favourite Book(s): A Darker Shade of Magic, Wonder Woman
Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriary
I was in a bit of a reading slump before I picked up this book. I knew I could count on Liane Moriarty to help pull me out of it! I was intrigued from the first page and I Just had to know what happened at the infamous BBQ! The majority of the characters are unlikable, but that is true for most of her characters, and I kind of love that!
A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab
The hype is real! I am so on board with this series! I can not wait to continue on with this series, and I want to read all of her books now. There is a lot of action, great characters, and fantastic world building!
Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo
What Leigh Bardugo did with this iconic character was nothing short of amazing! I thought that there was no way this story could live up to the movie, but I was wrong! I adore Diana and Bardugo captured her perfectly. I really enjoyed a lot of the side characters that we were introduced to as well.
The Before Now and After Then by Peter Monn
I have been wanting to read Peter’s book ever since I started watching his Youtube videos! I am so happy that I was finally able to get my hands on a copy. It is such a charming coming of age story, and I loved finding all the connections to Peter’s real life.
The History of Bees by Maja Lunde
This book was great! Maja Lunde is an incredible writer, and I am sucker for any story of that told from the perspective of different generations of main characters. There has been a lot in the news about bees lately, and this book really highlights their importance. I enjoyed all the characters, and it was interesting to see how their stories are connected.
I am so excited to try and tackle my Fall TBR this month! This time of year is probably when I do my most reading. There is just something comforting and cozy about the fall that makes me want to dive in to a good book! What was your favourite book this month?

Looks like September was a great month! 5 books has been my average lately as well. It FINALLY got below 30 degrees this week and I got to put on my first comfy sweater yesterday! Hopefully you can soon too!
I think today is the day that I might be able to get away with wearing a sweater and that is making me so happy! I hope it is like this next weekend too. I don’t want to have to wear shorts on Thanksgiving!
Your September sounded like a great month. Congrats on getting 700 followers. You deserve it all. I tend to average about 3-5 books a month as well and I am so happy that you’re on the hype wagon for the Shades of Magic series. I hope you enjoy the rest of the series and that the autumn weather finally sets in. 😀
Thank you so much!!
Shades of Magic is so fantastic! I was not expecting to like it as much as I do! I can’t wait to see where the series goes!

I really need to read A Darker Shade of Magic 🙁 So many books so little time
It is so true. The ongoing struggle of a bookworm!
Glad you had a great month and congratulations on reaching 700 followers 🎉🎉
Yay on finishing 5 books. I’m glad to hear you’re enjoying Stalking Jack the Ripper, because that’s on my October TBR. And also, congratulations on reaching 700 followers; that’s amazing!
Fantatsic reads and congrats on your 700 followers!!!
We still have pretty warm weather, too! I never took notice of fall before, but for some reason this year I am anxiously anticipating its arrival.
There is something special about fall! I hope the cooler weather comes your way soon!
Congrats on reaching 700 followers that s awesome! I’m a huge fan of Leigh Bardugo but I couldn’t get into Wonder Woman. I saw the movie and loved it and I think I tried to read this too close to seeing the movie? I was in Wonder Woman overload. Anyway, I have heard great things about it and will pick it up again soon!
I actually had a hard time with Wonder Woman at first too. It took awhile for me to separate the movie storyline from this one! I hope you enjoy it next time you pick it up!
Congratulations for 700 follower! 🎉🎊
Congratulations on 700 followers 🌸
Wonder Woman is on my TBR for October; I recently watched the movie and it was just so great seeing a female superhero, so I can’t wait to read the book. I’m also hoping to start The Darker Shade of Magic series before the end of the year!
Thank you so much! Woman Wonder is excellent! It might be difficult to separate the book from the movie but once you get passed that it is so good!
YES! So glad you agree the hype is real for Darker Shade of Magic!!
Ahh so freaking good!
29℃ is hot but alright, Kristin. Here in Taiwan we have 37℃ 😭 horrrrrrrible! I don’t even want to go outside.
Omg! That sounds awful!!
Congrats on reaching 700 followers! That’s always exciting. I really need to get to A Darker Shade of Magic! I feel like I’m missing out, because so many people love the series.
Thank you! It is so good! I don’t read a lot of series but this is definitely one I will be continuing!
great wrap up and congrats on 700 followers! 🙂
Thank you! 😊
