While October doesn’t seem to be light on new releases, it does seem like it’s going to be a little bit easier on my wallet than the September releases were. There are just less books that I’m interested in this month. Let’s jump into it!
September has been a crazy month! It was back to school and since it’s not exactly a normal year, it’s been a bit hectic all around. However, I still managed to read 15 books, which is not too shabby at all. Also I got all but one of the prompts completed for the September back to school edition of The Loyal Book-a-Thon. Let’s jump into all of the books that I read this month! You’ll find them below the cut.

I can’t believe it’s September already. 2020 has been such a roller coaster ride and I don’t really want to get into that all, but it seems like it’s gone by in a blink. I don’t know what the rest of the year has in store for us, but I do know that September has an insane amount of really good books coming out. Let’s just jump into it.
