Books I’ve Read in September 2019
September has been a busy month traveling and works wise, so I struggled to find as much time as I’d like to read. I also started focusing on my art a bit more because I really want to get better at it, so I’ll have to find a healthy balance between the two now. Maybe I should start listening to audiobooks while painting, but don’t think I’d be able to concentrate on both equally at the same time, haha. I can’t believe that it’s October already, where did 2019 go?! It’ll soon be time to start setting new reading goals for 2020.

Favourite Book of the Month
As I’ve only read two books this month this wasn’t really a hard choice. “The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle” combine Agatha Christie’s murder mysteries, Cluedo sort of “game play”, and some time travel (kind off). There are many details to this story, some better than others, and they all manage to tie in together into one dazzling story. Reading this at times felt like trying to solve an escape room sort-of puzzle. A more detailed review coming soon!
Books Bought/Received This Month
Big surprise of the month – I didn’t buy a single book! I’m so bad at putting off reading what I’ve bought that I decided to avoid buying any book this month. They barely fit in my shelves anyway! But I will be getting a few new releases soon as I can’t wait to read them asap!
It’s been a fairly quiet month reading and blogging wise, and I really missed it! I’m making a promise to myself to be more active in October in writing reviews, reading, and exploring other book bloggers. Might even do a tag or two because they’re so much fun to write!
September flew by and I feel so unprepared for October, Christmas, 2020, and everything that is yet to come. But I’m going to embrace it all with my eyes and heart open wide, and take it day by day!
