September 2021 Bookish Recap

October 05, 2021

Hello again! Can you believe we've already made it through September? Seriously, how is time moving so quickly right now?!

Again, I spent this month reading quality over quantity. Actually, I've read a ton of ARCs, which is so freaking cool because it's been a while since I've gotten any of those.

So here's what my September was all about book-wise:

Best Books

I got to read some amazing books, several of which were worthy of all the stars, however, the ones I loved most...

And yet, all of the books I read were great (some absolutely awesome) and they were...

Pure Requiem by Aja James
Jerk It by Lani Lynn Vale
Pure Destiny by Aja James
Inmate of the Month by Lani Lynn Vale
Dirty Gambit by Airicka Phoenix
Saving Silver by Xavier Neal
Coldhearted Bastard by Jenika Snow
Immortal's Honor by Rebecca Zanetti
The Killer's Vow by Aria R. Blue
The Boss by Melanie Moreland

Book Haul

No physical copies this month, but I did indulge in some of the ebook deals I shared on my blog. All books were $2 or less!

I also got the Fall in Love book bundle that had a limited time release.

Added to my tbr

Now here is where things start getting interesting. One of my goals this year was to read more of the books on my reading list and to resist adding too many more. I'm failing people!! At least, I failed this month. Who knows when I'll ever get to read these, but authors need to slow the heck down so I can read all of the books!!

Reading Stats

I read a total of 3756 pages across 13 books AND all of the books ended up being ones I'd recommend. I actually requested or was approached for ARCs, which made for a welcome change this month. So here's how I did:

What Else?

Absolutely nothing. I'm still trying to find the energy to post consistently. I'd like to get back to doing the Top Ten Tuesday posts (I really miss that community). And I'd love to try another reading challenge. Or I might just keep doing whatever it is I am (or am not) doing right now. Maybe I'll surprise you.

What are you looking forward to for October? I hope it's as incredible as we deserve it to be!

Talk soon,

xo, Natalie


  1. It looks like you had a great September! I cannot believe it's already October. This year is flying by. I loved both Enemies and The Love Hypothesis, so I hope you enjoy them.

    1. I know!! And yes, those two books were added to my list because of your reviews :)

  2. Reading quality over quantity is always better in my opinion, I mean we read romance so we are all voracious in our reading habits most of the time, but you always want to read the best books and not just average ones or it can burn one out.

    Looks like you had a great month in September. I can't believe we are halfway through where did the time go? I fail at the TBR challenges, because I just add more and more. haha Its just a hazard of reading romance especially, because there are so many books out there in the genre. Its crazy how massive of a genre its become.

    1. Every. Week.
      I swear, every week a new book is released and it's just one more to add to the 'probably never gonna be able to read' list. Between those that are traditional published and the influx of indie ones... it's never ending. However, I don't want it to stop because how else would we get our hands on the precious?

  3. I hope October is equally amazing for you Nat!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment because I absolutely love getting and giving them!
