September 2021 Monthly Wrap Up

Someone wanna tell me how it’s already October?! 😭

Not a whole lot happened in September but the month has literally passed by in a blur so I don’t even know if I’ve caught up yet mentally as I’m still at the start of the month but it’s already October? How?

I’ve still mostly stayed home but I took an exciting trip to Ikea for some Swedish Meatballs and new lux sheets early on in the month and I’m not mad about that! The parents also came back and we got to spend mum’s birthday together last weekend, which was nice 😊 Other than that it’s just been a slog of working, reading, occasionally painting, watching shows, and chilling to some good new tunes. I’ve been playing Montero repeatedly since it released and it’s a rare no-skip album for me and it just might be my favourite new release in 2021!

Goodreads Reading Challenge: August Update 137 of 150 books

I’ve just counted how many books I’ve read in September and it’s a whopping 28 books! I think this is the most books I’ve read in a month in 2021 and it’s most likely because a lot of these books were romances and it’s so easy to binge those. I found my first 5-star read in Good Girl, Bad Blood after months of not having one and I couldn’t think of a book that deserved it more!

I have to also mention two other favourites this month: The Wolf’s Curse (MG SFF) and The Sweetest Oblivion (Adult Romance).

I joined The Magical Readathon in September and had hoped to finish books for all seven prompts but sadly only got through five. Out of those, only two were reads I picked out for my “possibility pile” and that’s how truly awful I am at sticking to TBRs of any kind! 😂 Here’s what I managed to complete for the prompts:

  • The Novice Path Entrance – A book with a map: Lost Girl by Leia Stone
  • Ashthorn Tree – A book that keeps tempting you: A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson
  • The Mist of Solitude – A standalone: The Wolf’s Curse by Jessica Vitalis
  • Ruin of the Skye – A book ft. ghosts/haunted house or other supernatural elements: The Dark Bite by Leia Stone
  • Obsidian Falls – A thriller or mystery book: Good Girl, Bad Blood by Holly Jackson
