I never count rereads in my reading updates, which is why you can’t see any Harry Potter books above. Still, I have been revisiting the magical world of Hogwarts these past two months, both in book and movie form, and so I consider this challenge completed. :)

Okay, so this was obviously not the best reading month in my life, but I actually think I have a very good reason this time. You know, as it turns out, moving to an entirely new city and starting  university takes a lot of time and energy! Who’d have thought?!

Seriously, though, I had my first day yesterday, and I’m already beat.

I really wish I would have been able to read more this month, but I’m still quite happy with how it turned out. All three of the books I read were super great, and I really needed a fantastic book in my life right now. :) Yay!

So, what about you? Did you read anything good this month? Has your school year begun? If you want to, please feel free to tell me down in the comments. :)

  1. My friend bought my All The Light We Cannot See for my birthday last month and I am so excited to read it!, As I live in Australia, the school year starts in February and finishes in December, so not to far from finished. Btw I just found your blog and love it so much, it helped me get motivated to continue my blog

    • It makes me so happy to hear that, thank you! :) And yes, you shoul most definitely read AtLWCS, it’s great. :)
      Haha, I’d forgotten about that. :) Well, then you have something to look forward to soon while the rest of us suffer in school ;).
