Is it just me, or was September a ridiculously busy month?! The last few weeks I’ve been all MIA from my blog and all of your blogs and I’m so sad about it! School has picked up (got a 94% on my first exam, whoop!), work has been crazy and leaving me drained, I was sick, I had my birthday (I’m 23?! How did that happen?), and I’ve recently been very into yoga.
But seriously, let me tell ya, there have been a few nights this month that I have just needed a bubble bath and a glass of wine. You know? You know. Unless you’re under-aged. And then you can plead the 5th. But hey, it’s Fall! And I LOVE Fall. Lets do dis.
Books I Read:
ERMMM apparently I was really into series this month? Aaaaand Anne Frank is just chillin there in the middle. I’m playing catch-up from my college years so this will probably be a common theme. Plus I FREAKING LOVED the Grisha trilogy!!!!!!! I just. I can’t even.
My standings for The Quest No. 1 are as follows:
- Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe – Fannie Flagg
- Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë
- The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury
- The Disciple by Stephen Koontz
So I decided not to rank The Diary of a Young Girl, so the standings are the same. I am currently working on Team of Rivals, but it is very very very very long! I’m not giving up on this list, never fear, Jordyn is here! Sorry. I had to.
OKAY OKAY I KNOW but this book takes about 10x as long as any other book does to read. The pages are huge and the words are small and I don’t want to rush through it because it is actually fascinating. But this is probably going to take another 2 months or so to read if I’m being realistic.
Tags and Things:
September TBR!! (Pssst. I utterly failed this list)
Favorite Book of the Month:
I was torn between Ruin and Rising and Shadow and Bone, but I ended up just being so amazed by Bardugo and my own feelings in this one so I had to pick it! I don’t want to rave too much here because I’ll be posting a review soon, but I just absolutely loved this book and Six of Crows will be in my hands on Thursday because I will officially read anything that Leigh writes. Like, send me her grocery lists, I’m in. Probably not her grocery lists… I’m not a stalker. I promise.
Least Favorite Book of the Month:
I haven’t posted a review about this one either!! AH I’M SO BEHIND. I’ll get to it. But I did actually like this book. This was a good book month for me. It was just slow compared to The Maze Runner and I am just so frustrated!! Tell me I’ll get some answers in The Death Cure?!
That’s it for this month!
I’ll write again soon. Until then, keep reading.
