This week’s prompt is ‘A Story About War’. It’s a shorter one, but check it out below the cut!
October is here! I can’t believe we’re already here. This year has gone so quickly. I have to admit that I’m really excited about October. I’m not as obsessed as some people, but I really do find myself enjoying the spooky vibes that come along with the month. I love Halloween, and scary movies, so I’m definitely going to take some time to enjoy myself this month. That being said I am hoping to pick up some spooky reads this month. My reading plans are below the cut.
September was a bad reading month for me if I compare it to the previous month. In August I read so many books, and I felt like I did a really good job. However, my circumstances changed a little as we moved into September, so I didn’t get nearly as much read. I suppose that’s what happens when you go back to work and there are lots of other commitments on my plate then I had in August. However, I have to remind myself that ## is still a good amount of books to read and that 30 in one month is pretty abnormal unless one is reading purely graphic novels. Anyways, lets jump into what I read under the cut.
September was such a light month for me when it comes to hauling books. There were a bunch of books that I wanted to buy but I did my best to restrain myself and I only let myself purchase two outside of my subscription boxes that I got. I haven’t been doing very well on my resolution of not buying as many books this year, but I’m doing way better than I did last year, so that’s a definitely a plus. Without further ado, let’s jump into what I got. You’ll find it under the cut.
**Disclaimer: I received a free advanced reader copy of Aphrodite Made Me Do It by Trista Mateer from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you to them for this opportunity.
Aphrodite Made Me Do It by Trista Mateer is a short poetry collection taking on the dual points of view of Aphrodite and the poet herself. It releases on October 1st. I gave it 4.5/5 stars, which I had to put down as a 4 on Goodreads.
