Month in Review: September 2020


My reading streak continues as does my staying home, and I am certainly not complaining. I did manage to reign in my spending this month after going a little overboard last month, which was good. Now that fall is officially here and the cooler weather has made its appearance, I am ready for all the spooky reads and those heavier, more in-depth reads...I obviously have the time for them! Do your reading tastes change with the seasons?

  1. September was a great month for you! I’m not a seasonal reader per se, except for Christmas reads.

  2. It's amazing how much you read. I try to read a lot but often end up with 8-12 books a month while other people read 20+books. I love the way you do the statistic of the month. It is fun to read. Happy weekend.


Thank you so much for leaving a comment! I love interacting with other book lovers and appreciate any thoughts or feedback! If you read a book after seeing my review, please let me know. Come back and leave me a link to your review so I can read it. Thank you!!!
