Happy Sunday everyone! Before I get into my September wrap up, I want to thank all of you for following my blog. I surpassed 300 followers this month and I’m ecstatic about that. It’s not about the numbers, but I’m grateful for all the support I’ve received. Thank you. Now, for the wrap up.
What I Read In September
September wasn’t my best reading month. I wasn’t very enthusiastic or motivated to read; however, I managed to finish 4 books. It doesn’t feel like I did, but I did. I hope October is better.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling: I made the decision to re-read Harry Potter at the end of August before JKR’s problematic retcon and misrepresentation of Asian women. She irks my soul and I wish she wasn’t at the helm of Harry Potter. You can read my review from my last re-read HERE.
Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo: I read somewhere that reading an old favorite can help break a reading slump. I listened to the audiobook hoping it would motivate me to read. I loved the audiobook and I missed these characters deeply. Gave this 5/5 stars.
The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton: This was an interesting and unique story about beauty commodification with hints of fantasy. Exquisite world-building and lush writing. Check out 4 star my review HERE.
Books I Reviewed In September
Around The Blogosphere
Kelly from Another Book in The Wall wrote this fantastic post about Blog Designs and The Influence They Can Have
Kayla from Books and Blends talks about her New Relationship with Reading.
Amazon Music: A work colleague mentioned that Amazon has better playlists than Spotify. I decided to give the free trial a chance and my colleague was right. The playlists are amazing.
Softbox Light: My best friend gave me this lighting kit last year for my birthday. I rediscovered that I owned this item at the beginning of the month. It’s great for taking photos after dark.
