Hello, hello friends!
I can’t believe that September is already here?! I know I’ve said that pretty much every month this year but it is even truer for September. It feels like not that long ago that I was starting my Masters last September and now we’re back in September and this time I’m about to start my PhD?? I honestly do not really know how I got here but September/October is going to be a pretty big month for me and the start of another 3-year foray (at the very least) into education. I am clearly a glutton for punishment.
Speaking of being a glutton for punishment, I still want to keep up with my blog in whatever way I can manage so I don’t foresee myself going anywhere over the next months. Not only am I going to be sticking around but I’m hoping to introduce a new feature to put the spotlight on indie and/or diverse authors. I’ve been wanting to introduce this since the start of the year and feel particularly inspired to after World Con in August. I’m also hoping to set up a book blogger streaming collective with a few blogger friends. So, lots of exciting things ahead. Do you think I’ll have time for reading too? 😂
I’m not 100% sure what my TBR for September is going to be given that I haven’t been able to dedicate much thought space to books over the past few weeks and there are only 4 more TBR’s to go before the end of the year. I had so many books I had planned to read this year and I feel like I haven’t read very many of them. Rather than get overwhelmed about how little time we have left in 2019, I figure a good place to start is with the books leftover from my August TBR!
All 4 of these are also ARCs: 2 from July, 1 from earlier in the year and 1 from last Summer so reading them will not only be great in terms of reading them but also for knocking down some more ARCs from my list 💛
Being a book blogger feels like an eternal battle between wanting/needing to read ARCs, catching up with backlist books and keeping up with new releases. There are so many books I desperately want to read but have no idea when I will ever find the time! For now, I’ll add To Be Taught If Fortunate and A Monster Calls to my September TBR as these are two that immediately jumped out at me as wanting to be read. I received my copy of To Be Taught… just a few weeks ago and want to devour it immediately, especially post-Record of a Spaceborn Few which I read in August. A Monster Calls is one that I bought a few months ago from a fellow blogger that I really want to make time for. There’s lots of others I’d love to read but it all depends on how much time I’ll have this month.
Let me know what you’re reading plans are for September and how you’re planning on structuring your TBR now we’re so close to the end of the year. I need help planning my time haha.
