Happy September. I’m just flabbergasted (yes I just used that word) that we are already into the 9th month of the year? It is flying by. September though is my favourite month, because it is my birth month. September 16th and I will be another year older… Which I will not accept.
This month I feel really proud of myself with my reading and blogging. I feel like this is the most I have ever posted and read?!
The Winners Curse | The Winners Crime | The Winners Kiss by Marie Rutkoski
By Your Side by Kasie West
The Night Circus by Erin Morgernstern
Empire of Storms by Sarah J.MAAS
So I officially read 8 Books this month and I still need to write 6 of their reviews… oopsy. Overall I am happy with my reading choices this month and I am finally knocking off books from my TBR which is a goal of mine for this year.
I’m looking at you The Night Circus.

I posted 10 times this month. I am never this organised, but I know I have been using that scheduling button well this month. I have really loved all the responses I have been getting this month from all my posts especially my discussions. Learning what all your guys’ opinions are on a subject is so interesting.
There are always so many posts around the blogging world which I love, please find below some of my favourites this month;

So how have I been doing this month?
I can safely say I have been pretty stressed, whilst I have been organised with my blog and scheduled posts rather well (the best I have ever done at least) I have been struggling to keep up with blogging, my job and life. I have been waiting to hear about my Masters applications for so long now because my applications got delayed due to tutors dragging their feet with references. The courses would start on September 18th so it’s cutting it very fine for me and basically I’m questioning everything because of it.
Other than that, I have reached 425 followers on my blog which is phenomenal?! I mean I can’t believe that you all follow me and want to read what I blog about. I love each and every one of you and interacting with you is the highlight of my day. Thank you for your continued support. I also have some other news… I started writing my own Young Adult book. I’ve had the idea for over a year and I have begun writing it a few times and finally I am really focusing on writing it. I am feeling inspired and just know I want to get this story out there.
Not to reveal too much but I am writing a Dystopian/Fantasy type book which will of course feature a strong female lead who I have had named for the year and now holds a special place in my heart. I hope I can continue writing it and let you read it one day.
Let me know how your August has been! What have you read? What are you going to read next?
