SEPTEMBER RECAP ||OH MY I READ MORE THAN 0.5 BOOKS (!!) + MY TBR WILL CRUSH ME (that’s okay) + 900 FOLLOWERS (!!!!!)

YOU KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS. . . IT’S OFFICIALLY AUTUMN. 

September has passed so quickly. It feels like September has literally been the last week and THAT’S IT. WHAT’S UP WITH THAT? I think that imma have to start being more productive. I literally did nothing this month. Not even kidding. However, I feel that I read a lot more than I usually do. . . whoa would you look at that. Normally I read about 0.5 books per month, but I read like,,, more *forgets how many I actually read*

BUT GUYS. AUTUMN IS HERE. This is the only month where I do something along the lines of thriving. And I mean that loosely. Get out your scarves., your hats, basically walk around in a blanket (yes, even in public) and basically live off of hot chocolate and soups. I am feeling all the excite.

  1. The Devil’s Advocate ARC, by Michaela Haze. ★★★★ Really liked this book, had a great pace, LOTS OF MORALLY GREY CHARACTERS –> mmmmmmm scrummy. . . Had a really interesting world which was really well developed and the main character was really sassy. You can go ahead and read my review here if you want more detail.
  2. Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters, by Rick Riordan.★★★ Had really funny moments, but I’m not quite in love with the series yetttttt, I know, I’M HEARTLESS. . . I found it really middle grade, but I’m hoping that this will improve as the characters mature. I will be reading the next ones, but I just don’t know when. . . Look-ie here, you can read my Goodreads review!*
  3. The Princess Saves Herself In This One, by Amanda Lovelace.★★★★★ I read this so quickly and I loved the poetry so much, it broke my heart (and smushed it up into 75823697574650 pieces) and was actually really empowering. I recommend this to everyoneeeee. I think that everyone should be the princess that saves herself #FEMINISM. Ohhhh look, another Goodreads review!
  4. More Than This, by Patrick ness.★★★★ Tomasz is the most wonderful being ever, I loved him so much. Awwww Tomasz . . . I mean the book was good too. . . BUT TOMASZ. He was the cutest thing ever. BUT OH MY WORD CAN THE DRIVER JUST GO DIE!! But oh look. . .  you can read my goodreads review here.
*So much self-promo. . . I’m almost ashamed.

Marie: Wrote a really great post about anxiety over blogging and I just. . . I wish that I had written that because IT WAS THAT. FREAKING. GOOD.

Mikaela: Literally. ONE OF THE BEST THINGS. When I read this I was genuinely smacked in the face. BOOM.

Mikaela (2): Reading this posts genuinely consisted of me screaming some version of “YAS!” and “PREACH MIKAELA!!” and a weird combo: “YACH!!” *

Ilsa: shared words of wisdom on how to love your writing. SO if you are one of these people that use words and like to do so, (i.e. my way of saying writers. . .) go check out this post and be gushed with self-writing-love.

Rhea: just hit 200 followers so like… IF YOU’RE NOT FOLLOWING HER I THINK THAT YOU SHOULD GET OUT FROM UNDER THAT ROCK. Just a forceful suggestion. . .
