Bookish | Wrappin’ Up September

Geez, it’s October already?! I feel like I just wrote last month’s wrap up! (and, in fact, I did, not four blog posts ago.) Every month gets a little harder to read, but I feel like for the upcoming month I’m going to get over that by sheer power of will.

So, let’s get into this past month’s worth of reading!

I’m up to 42 of my goal of 65 books on my Goodreads challenge! I hope to get caught up over the next few months, especially with the number of holidays and breaks from school. If you have any recommendations for what I should try to read before the year is out, feel free to comment!

So, you’re probably wondering what is up with that rating for Speak, right? I don’t plan on writing a full review, because I did not actually read every last word of this novel– at times I had to skip whole pages just to get through it. It’s a very emotional, very triggering read for survivors of rape and sexual abuse, and it was all I could do to get to the end. Nevertheless, I believe it’s also a very important and accurate book and I would encourage everyone to check it out for themselves.
