How fast did September go?! I literally blinked and it was over.
Little life update:
The title of this post is both a pun and actually legit.
I was in a car crash in the beginning of September, spent a night waiting in a&e and my boyfriend’s car ended up being irreparable. Luckily, neither of us were seriously injured. We were suffered from bad whiplash and bruising. Since then I haven’t really been reading, my mind couldn’t concentrate on reading. I was on strong pain medication for a bit, which made me sleepy and drained. I really hoped for a good reading month but oh well. I still managed to read 3 books, all at the very end of Sept.
Books I read in September:
Firstly, I read An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson
This book was disappointing to say the least. It was just an overall flop for me, unfortunately. I have a full ranty review up if you wish to see my full thoughts. (Spoiler free, of course!)

Next, I listened to the audiobook of *All Along You Were Blooming by Morgan Harper Nichols
I listened to this because it was super short and I wanted something easy to listen to. I’ve also been trying (and failing) to get into poetry. This really wasn’t my cup of tea. I didn’t feel connected to the poetry at all. I didn’t think the poems were anything amazing or interesting. I think this book is probably better off read physically. The physical book has illustrations which probably helps tell the story.

Finally, on the last day of September, I decided to try and squeeze in another book. I picked *The Voting Booth by Brandy Colbert.
Which ended up being my favourite read of the month!
I’ll have a review up soon with all my thoughts but I think this book seriously needs more hype. I have never seen anyone mention this book! I only know about it through Libro.fm as it was part of their ALCs for a month.
