September Wrap Up

 It's finally fall and I couldn't be happier!  I love this time of year so much.

I normally post my monthly wrap up once the month is over but I know I'm not going to finish anything else so here it is.  I felt like September was a really slow reading month for me but when I look at the numbers, it doesn't really look that bad.  I could have read a lot more but I got really sucked into NetFlix and spent an exorbitant amount of time watching Criminal Minds and Justified.

I'm now at 75 books read for the year so I know I'll meet my reading goal in October.  I'm really hoping that I can get to at least 90 books read this year.  If I read 8ish books a month for the rest of the year, I'll hit 100 which will be awesome!  The most I've read in a year since Julia was born was 88 books so I'm hoping to exceed that this year.

 Here are my September numbers:
-9 books read
   -1 non-fiction
   -3 historical fiction
   -3 review books
   -4 library books
   -2 books I own
   -6 ebooks

What I read in September (reviews for many of these will be coming soon!):

1.) Becoming Lisette by Rebecca Glenn - 4 stars
2.) The Christmas Bargain by Shanna Hatfield - 4 stars
3.) Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling - 4 stars
4.) The Perfect Match by Kristan Higgins - 4 stars
5.) Waiting on You by Kristan Higgins - 4 stars
6.) 102 Minutes by Jim Dwyer and Kevin Flynn - 4 stars
7.) Esther by Rebecca Kanner - 3 stars
8.) In Your Dreams by Kristan Higgins - 4 stars
9.) Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling - 5 stars

Since we only have a few months left in the year, I thought I would do a break down of where I stand for the year.  I'm pretty happy with where I stand except in regards to reading books I own.  I really need to work on that (I say all the time and never do...oops).  I've read more than twice the number of non-fiction books I read last year and have several more to read in the coming month.  I've also done pretty well at limiting review books which is keeping my reading nice and stress free.

Here are my numbers for January-September 2015:
-75 books read
   -11 non-fiction
   -28 historical fiction
   -18 review
   -40 library books
   -17 books I own
   -33 ebooks

How was the month of September for you?  Are you on track to meeting  your reading goals?

  1. The beginning of Fall is my favorite time of year. It's good you are on track to meet your reading goals. I only read 2-3 books/mo and I'm trying to do better about accepting review books in order to keep pressure down. Have a great October!
