Can you believe it is already October? I don’t think I can. October is one of my favorite months because it means that it is officially autumn! Autumn is seriously my favorite season. I can’t help but imagine Hades and Persephone finally reunited and Cerberus running around chasing leaves as they fall. Also, my birthday is October, so that means it’s the best.
I know I say this on every monthly wrap-up, but I just want to say how much I appreciate you all reading this blog. I love seeing the comments, the likes, and I love how amazingly supportive the blogger & reader communities are. I have found the perfect people who keep me motivated on my blog & who challenge me to be not only a better blogger but a better person. You all are amazing. If you have any thoughts, comments, or questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
As most readers know, our reading habits vary from month to month. I’m doing these monthly wrap-ups because the Ravenclaw in me LOVES all the statistics! I’m currently using the reading log by Book Riot to find all of my stats so if this looks like fun, I highly recommend taking a look at their reading log (though… it’s now not on their website)!

Wow I can’t believe it is October! Looks like you had a great month and I hope it continues for October!
Ooh, very curious about why you DNFd American Royals! It wasn’t my favorite either. Will you put up a review soon?
I don’t review DNFd books on my blog but I did leave a short review over on goodreads. You can find it here https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2955002423?book_show_action=false&from_review_page=1
Congrats on your September!
My sister Ravenclaw! Impressive stats, I am challenging you to crack 2000 pages in October.
That does sound like an interesting challenge!
October is spring for me. I only managed to read four books in October🙈
Hopefully they were good books!!
Um why wasn’t it have me following you?? I went to look at your new post and it said follow gosh I hate wp sometimes
Oh man! Now I’m going to have to make sure I’m following you as well because it doesn’t show me if I am or not. Agh. WP definitely has some things it needs to work on.
It really does! For today’s post it wouldn’t show the bullet point and like ???? What
And now I’m following you, I could have sworn I was following anyway but oh well.
It’s crazy! I’m now using the blocks instead of the classic and that seems to be working a bit better. Just a warning, you can never get classic back if you convert.
Seee!! I know for a fact you definitely were! Also I refuse to go blocks because I fudged up my post once so bad that everything reverted to classic and the dev techs couldn’t even figure out. Since then, I refuse to use these crappy “blocks” just let me type my freaking posts and post them! It doesn’t need to be so complicated
I’m glad I’m not crazy! I definitely thought I was too!
I almost wish I could go back to classic but now that I’m used to the blocks it’s not terrible.
I thought you can still revert tho? Have you tried scrolling all the way to the bottom of the right column? Cause I’ve always been able to go back and forth, especially since Block’s is still in beta! Or you can try messaging them if you wish! The history button also disappeared once for me on blocks and i ripped them a new one with that one lol now i refuse to use it until they force launch it
Hmmm! I will definitely try that!
You’re on a roll!
Impressive stats! Looks like you had a great month.
Wow! Impressive stats.
ok, now I need to get going on maintaining reading stats.. first Robin’s and now yours.. all impressive. (and maybe stopping binge watching on Netflix will help too:)).
I really enjoy seeing it all together! It is fun to see how things change! Plus seeing pages read & hours listened to is incredibly motivating to me!
great wrap up! I’ve heard quite a bit of mixed/bad reviews for american royals.
It definitely wasn’t my cup of coffee!
Every time I see a post like this I think I should maintain better stats. But ultimately I only see what Goodreads tells me! Nine books is amazing!
It always annoyed me that Goodreads wouldn’t tell me how long I listened so I decided to keep better notes. 🙂
Looks like you had a great month, 1 DNF is going well. He’s hoping October is just as good.
I was surprised that I only had one DNF!
Great wrap-up. I love your stats!
Looks like you had a good month!!!
Great post it looks like you had an amazing reading month in September. Thank you so much for sharing your awesome post.
