September 2016 Wrap Up & October TBR



Hey, guys!

      This month has been so crazy busy! I've just finished my first full month of my freshman year of college, I've started a new job, I've done homework for most of the month and as you can see, I've barely read any books this month. I was planning to read, but I have finished some alright books. 


  1. City Of Ashes by Cassandra Clare
    • Rating: 4.75 stars
    • Review Date: October 27
  2. Perfected by Katie Jarvik Birch
    • Rating: 3 stars
    • Review Date: TBD
  3. The Children's Horrible House by N. Jane Quackenbush
    • My Rating: 3 stars
    • Review Date: October 10
  4. The Curious Incident of the Dog In The Night-Time by Mark Haddon
    • My Rating: 4 stars
    • Review Date: TBD
  5. Biome by Ryan Galloway
    • My Rating: 3 stars
    • Review Date: October 4
      I read two books for fun, 2 review copies, and one for my literature class. I know that 5 is a pretty good, but I was expecting to read so much more. Last month, I had read 13 books, and I guess I had really high expectations for myself. Hopefully, I get back to reading and get out of the reading slump that has been developing throughout the month. Hopefully, I'll read more in October, but who knows? I work quite a lot and my homework takes up almost all of my free time. There are so many things I want to do in October. It's my birthday month, so hopefully great things happen.

Currently Reading: Furthermore by Tehereh Mafi
    • Current Reading Status: page 283
    • This is the September book of the month, so hopefully I get it done in time for the live stream that Julia and I are supposed to do. It might be late, but we're not sure yet. We have so much going on. 
Total Pages Read: 1,553
Favorite Book Read: City of Ashes
Least Favorite Book Read: Perfected
Most Common Genre Read: Fantasy


October TBR: 

Here are the books that I really want to read this month. I mean, who knows what's going to happen. I know that at least 3 of these books will get finished because they either have reviews that are supposed to go up really soon or they are supposed to read for school or the book club. There are a couple books that aren't shown (i.e. the book club book of the month). 




  1. Return to the Children's Horrible House(Children's Horrible House #2) by N. Jane Quackenbush
  2. The Reluctant Fundamentalist by Mohsin Hamid 
  3. Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis
  4. City of Glass (The Mortal Instruments #3) by Cassandra Clare 
  5. Furthermore by Tehereh Mafi
  6. Yellow Brick War (Dorothy Must Die #3) by Danielle Paige
  7. The First Principle by Marissa Shrock
      Who knows if I'll finish all of these books, but hopefully I will. I still have quite a few review copies that I need to read too, but I kind of pick those up whenever I have time. I don't want to ruin the reading experience by making myself read them when I'm not in the mood. 

Sorry this was put up late! I've had such a busy month! 

Happy reading everyone! Comment down below your reading progress!
