Happy September everybody! August slipped away like a bottle of wine…
And if you get that reference you’re my new best friend :). I had a good reading month all things considered. I finished 21 books and a lot of them were ARCs that I needed to get to for Netgalley and Edelweiss. I still have a lot of work to do on my Netgalley shelf but I am going into September triumphant and motivated to keep working at it and gaining ground on it. I have a LOT of book planned for September, which you’ll be able to see tomorrow when I post my September TBR post!
Another highlight to this month was several 5 star reads, I did a buddy read with a good friend on Instagram, and I moved into the dark romance genre and lost A LOT of sleep when that happened! But I can’t say I have regrets, I just need to consume those books on a limited basis otherwise I’ll never sleep – because they’re addicting!
