Monthly Wrap Up

September in Reading #MonthlyWrapUp

Hello readers! I hope you all are well and had great September. My month had been tiring emotionally and hectic physically. If you missed my post, I had to make few changes in life and with blog. Now that we are taking my daughter to speech therapist, trying to teach her make eye contact and follow what we say and also put her in playgroup for six month that is starting from Monday (her induction is tomorrow), my whole day goes after her and I only get time to blog and read at night or early in morning. I don’t see that changing anytime soon. I still managed to read 8 books that surprised me and not at the same time as I did less interactions than I usually do. Here is how month in reading go –

Best book of the Month

Looking forward in October

Nothing much!
– I might start buddy reading The Cruel Prince with Toni.
– It’s a birthday month but I’m not buying any books as I already did last month and also we had extra expenses with therapy and playgroup.

Thank you for reading! Let’s chat…

Have you read any of these books or added to TBR? How was your month in reading? What are you planning to read in October?
