September was a hard month to get through. Deadlines at work, a whole lot of stuff happening in my personal life.. Yet somehow.. I still managed to make this one of my best reading months this year! Not only looking at numbers, but most definitely looking at my own Sequel September-challenge. I read a ton of sequels and I’m so proud of myself!
Let’s see how many I read!

See, not too bad, hey? I never thought I’d tick off so many of my sequels but I did! I finished a whole lot of them, which is going to justify me starting some new ones in October, haha. Have to admit, I’m secretly hoping to finish the ones I’m going to start as well.. And not have them hanging around for a year.. We’ll see!
OTHER BOOKS OFF MY TBR I READ
No clue why I suddenly decided to pick these up? I wasn’t planning on it at all, but suddenly they just had to be read. Guess our brains can work like that sometimes. And, at least now I got to tick off another classic! Yay!
ARC’S I READ
Twice Dead by Caitlin Seal ~ ★★☆
I Do Not Trust You by Laura J. Burns & Melinda Metz ~ ★★
My Whole Truth by Mischa Thrace ~ ★★★★★
The Lion Tamer Who Lost by Louise Beech ~ ★★★★★
Girls of Paper and Fire ~ ★★★★☆
Five ARC’s isn’t a bad number! Only one of my reviews is online right now, but be sure to be on the lookout for the others! Most of them are scheduled to pop up during October.
Total number of books read: 18
A million thank you’s to Destiny for these! And don’t you even dare think I forgot about your birthday coming up – I haven’t!
SEQUELS! Of course I had to buy some sequels during Sequel September, right? Oh, who cares! We all know those are two of my most anticipated reads – especially since reading Hunting Prince Dracula so I’m not even going to make any excuses. There aren’t any.
I am so glad with how September went reading-wise. I’m really hoping October / OWNtober will be as amazing. Although I’ll definitely be.. limited in number of books read because of my IT-readalong.. Which I’m going to start reading in.. about.. an hour or something. We’ll see how it goes?
