Lo and behold, my September #wrapup (Side note: how is it October 1st when itโ€™s 90 degrees in LA again?!)


Iโ€™ve said before that Iโ€™m a total mood reader, and once again this has proven to be true. Last month was the first time I gave a go at a full-on monthly tbr pile to attempt, and I only got through 2.5 on that list, BUT, I have #noregrets. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ

I read what was manageable with my current life-stuff, and my time spent writing, which is a huge priority for me.

I think this is also a good time to admit that sometimes bookstagram gives me a lil bit of the anxiety/imposter syndrome feels ๐Ÿคญ, because I canโ€™t always keep up with those who are able to read SO MUCH even with their clearly super busy lives (10-15 books and not even for school…how?! ๐Ÿคฏ). But, I think Iโ€™m not alone here. So, perhaps itโ€™s important to try not to let that feeling get us down or put a damper on what we sometimes-slower readers have accomplished.

I finished The Interestings from the month before, re-read Big Magic for inspiration, and the last issue I bought of my favorite poetry mag that was languishing on my shelf.

From my tbr, I also read a good chunk of stories from Whatever Happened to Interracial Love, the first few chapters of The Lonely City (love๐Ÿ–คlove๐Ÿ™love๐Ÿ–ค & must savor), and chugged away on the Everlasting Gobstobber that is The Blind Assassin for me, haha.

Goldfinch is open in the back of the photo there where I last left off (about halfway through). I was reading it for the @anovelfamily #goldfinchreadalong, and though I didnโ€™t finish it, I spent so much time with it in September that Iโ€™m including it here. It got a little sloggy for me in the middle, which admittedly slowed me down, but the beginning was so damn gorgeous that I have faith this will turn out to be as beautiful as I expected.

I did finish 4 books that were #readwhatyouown!, and I pretty much loved everything I read, so… ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ซ๐Ÿ’“

๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿ“–1/2 (Ratings below in the comments cuz they donโ€™t fit! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ)

Happy October 1st everyone! Let the spooky reads begin! ๐Ÿ‘ป๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿฆ‡๐Ÿ•ธ๐ŸŽƒ
