September Wrap Up and October TBR

Books I read and my reviews:

This is my first wrap up and TBR post so I am very excited to share it with all of you! While I didn’t get to every book I wanted to read this month, I was very happy with everything I did manage to read. I read 8 books!

Carry On – The Rise and Fall of Simon Snow is a ghost story, a love story and a mystery. It has just as much kissing and talking as you’d expect from a Rainbow Rowell story – but far, far more monsters.”
