September 2015: Recap & Wrap-Up!

I think I say it nearly every month but this month FLEW by. I feel like I had a good reading month and did a lot of catching up on review copies, re-reads, and a bunch of other things I wanted to read. I still wasn’t knocking books out left and right but I feel like I read a significant amount and the fact that I feel accomplished and satisfied is a win right there!


  • Number of Books Read: 10! That’s a pretty good month!
  • Popular Search Terms:  “books like harry potter” and “books like anna and the french kiss” // “best friends romance books” // “the lunar chronicles personality test”
  • More Amusing Search Terms: “clash of kings cake” // “alina starkov mbti” (Love!) // “broken heart boy crying” (I don’t even…?) // “fixer role with addicts” (Ahh. No.)
  • Most Referrals (non-social media): The Broke and the BookishRather Be Reading, GReads!
  • Where My Blog Most Often Leads You (non-internal/social media): MTBI Personality Test, Harry Potter MBTI Chart, Uppercase Box



Reviews Posted

  • RED QUEEN felt like a mash-up of a lot of things that I’ve read… but I was definitely still captivated!
  • I was so excited for DREAMSTRIDER but it fell fairly flat for me. I was just hoping for so much more!
  • I listened to the audiobook of PANIC by Lauren Oliver and thought it was enjoyable but ultimately a little disappointing.
  • I kept on reading the Stephanie Plum series with EXPLOSIVE EIGHTEEN!
  • If you don’t have ILLUMINAE on your reading list, you definitely need to add it! It was amazing!!
  • I tried to do a video review of THE DETOUR but the video failed… but I managed to save the audio so you can check out my audio review instead!
  • My re-read review of SCARLET was in the form of a “10 Things” list!
  • I posted a review for FIRST & THEN by Emma Mills

    Yay! Definitely looking forward to an interview with Mindy McGinnis! I can’t wait to hear more from her and have you pick her brain 🙂 Sounds like September was a great month, and October is gearing up to be fantastic too!

    Love your bookstagram photos! I need to try and remember to Instagram more about the books I’m reading. I’m looking forward to your Fortnight of Fright posts – ack – totally forgot about it and meant to join in the fun 🙂

  3. Mel@thedailyprophecy

    I hear nothing but good things about Illuminae 🙂 I’m starting to get more excited for it (but oh, how I hate that cover..) I look forward to the interview with Mindy McGinnis, she quickly made her way to my favorite-authors and auto-buy-authors lists!

    Happy October 😀
