Oh hey another month gone and… well, we haven’t done much. You may have noticed the distinct lack of posts. Alise and I have two very different explanations about that. But first, what did we actually post?
- August 2016 Wrap Up
- Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children Giveaway #StayPeculiar
- How I Listen to Audiobooks
September has passed so quickly for me because I’ve been studying non-stop. Exams happened, and are still happening. I feel incredibly unprepared and super stressed. This has been my constant state of being for the entire semester, and is probably going to be my general state of being for the next year.
I did get to go to BWF one weekend and meet Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. Their talk was hilarious. Also guess who dropped their six books in the signing line! (Dropping objects in front of Jay Kristoff may be becoming tradition) Hardcovers make a really loud sound when they hit the floor you might be interested to know.
Last week I completed my Goodreads challenge! I aimed to read 50 books and managed to get there faster than usual thanks to audiobooks. Another thing I completed was the Pottermore Patronus quiz, the result of which was a great grey owl!
- EMPIRE OF STORMS by Sarah J Maas (which I can’t read until December)

For the past month I have been so totally and completely sick. It was one thing after another and I found myself fighting three different viruses at one point. It was a struggle to even eat or get out of bed and I had absolutely no motivation to do anything, even read, which explains the lack of posts on my end. Add in a hectic last semester of university and I’m down for the count. Luckily, I am starting to feel better and am looking forward to reading all the new releases that have been coming out lately!
