Where the heck did September go? All of a sudden it’s October and I have no idea where any of the time went. It was a hectic month with back to school and back to school illnesses. However, it was ultimately a pretty good month, and I read a fair few books and got some good books to add to my collection. You’ll find everything I read and hauled below the cut.
August was such a strange but lovely month. I took time to enjoy being a newlywed, and then I started getting ready to go back to work, despite there being a heck of a lot procrastination involved in that as well. I’m very good at procrastinating. I did, however, end up doing a fair bit of reading, and some particularly good reading. It was an excellent month all told.
July was a really busy month for me because we were wedding planning and recovering from the school year so I didn’t spend as much time reading as I wanted to. However, I did conclude the month by getting married so that automatically makes this the best month ever. Ultimately, I read 12 books, which beats my monthly goal of 10 books read.
***Disclaimer: I received a free early access copy of The Foxglove King by Hannah Whitten from Orbit Books for review purposes. Thank you so much for opportunity.
I had seen the hype for this book all over bookstagram and when I emailed Orbit, they got back to me saying that if they had any review copies left they’d send me one. I was so lucky that one came in the mail but not a few days later! It was one of my most exciting book mail moments. So thank you once again so much to Orbit Books for making this reviewer so happy with this great story.

In previous years I have been creating a list of books to read based on my age, but I have not always been good about actually reading those books. However, this year I have decided to not do that and instead I’m going to try to read 23 specific books since it is 2023. I’m hoping that this is a more manageable number for me, but I guess we’ll see. I’m going to list the books down below. Let me know if you have read any of them, and which ones I should prioritize.
December was also a busy month, and I think by this time I was feeling a little burnt out from the year. My course was all wrapped up at the start of the month. Then I celebrated my birthday and it was Christmas and my family was visiting. I didn’t get as muhc reading done as I wanted but I read some good stuff anyways. Let’s just dive into it!
