Blogtober Day 3 – September Wrap Up: I’m In a Slump!

Hey guys, what’s up, welcome back to another Blogtober post! Today I’m bringing you my September wrap up and this month I have read two books. TWO. It has been a struggle this month to find the motivation to read and I have no idea why. I have had a few things on my mind this month but I haven’t been super busy, so to have read less than a book a week is shocking for me.  This is going to be a short post, but a wrap up it will be!

 

1. Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

This was a re-read for me. I read this series a number of times in my young teen years and I was a huge fan of the Twilight Saga. I don’t know why, but I recently had a massive craving to watch all of the movies, and after finishing the movies I just had to give the books a re-read. Of course. I can’t say wether I enjoyed this read or not, but the writing is just as bad as I remember. I’m glad I re-read it because it gave me a chance to properly rate this book.

I gave this book 3 stars.

 

 

 

2. Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

I buddy read this book with the wonderful Zoe – from yerabooknerdzoe – and had a really good time. We were both slumping, and slumping hard, at the beginning of this month and it took us both a long time to read this book. For me it took a long time for me to become invested but once I did I flew through to the end. I liked the book and I’m intrigued to see where it’s going to go, but it wasn’t my favourite read in the world.

I gave this book 3 stars.

 

 

 

 

 

Some non-bookish things:

  • I applied for a Master’s Degree and got accepted to study English and Creative Writing!
  • I started a new job!
  • I met up with the amazing Joel from FictionalFates!
  • I was contacted on twitter to be quoted in an online magazine article about reading slumps which you can find here!
  • I did my first buddy read with Zoe from yerabooknerdzoe!
  • And sadly my grandmother passed away this month.

What was the best book you read this month? Did anything exciting happen to you?

  1. Sometimes it’s just not the right time to read. I love a reread!
    Have you tried audiobooks?

    1. Yes I have tried audiobooks but I often find that I only really enjoy listening to audiobooks while driving.
