Blogger of the Month: 

I couldn't pick just one person who was so incredibly lovely this month, so I'd like to extend a huge thanks to all of you! All of you were so lovely with my latest discussion, I'm so thankful to have you all in my life. I love you guys <3

Personally of the Month: 

Nothing much happened either than I started Grade 12. It's been so much fun so far, especially in my Writer's Craft class, and I'm so happy that I've learnt so much. I can see my writing improving, and my teacher is so knowledgeable. This has definitely been the month of writing.

Overall, I had a good September! This year is looking up and I'm willing to let myself enjoy it :)

How was your September?

  1. Looks like you had a lot of good reads this month! I'll have to read A Monster Calls sometime soon, I've been meaning to for such a long time. I wish you well in October!

    1. Thank you Brooklyn! That book is so cool and unique, such an amazing concept!

  2. Glad you had a good month Em! XD And thanks for the link!!!! XD And of course we all supported you - you're awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

  3. You read soo many books in September!! I managed five, and one was also Wuthering Heights as part of my English Literature course. It was better than I expected, to be honest. Glad you liked my post on series marathoning! I'd been meaning to post it for a while haha. Hope October is just as good for you!

    1. Thanks Charlotte, hope October is good for you too! Wuthering Heights was really emotional and surprising to me, although that family tree confused me so much!

    2. I think I was most surprised by Heathcliff. I knew he was a bit of an asshole going in but I wasn't expecting him to be so mean! The family tree was so confusing - took me ages to figure out who was who!

    3. I actually kind of liked him! I knew he was an asshole but idk I think his intentions were good. And yes, it was especially confusing because some people shared the same name!

  4. Wow, that's quite a lot of books for last month, Em! I'm glad September turned out to be quite so productive for you, and hey, thanks for mentioning my Royal Ranting *blushes* You're the sweetest!

    1. Haha yes, I did get up to a lot of reading this month all thanks to my study hall in school. It's pretty much all I do. Happy October :)

  5. Woww, you read a lot of books in September! That's great! I hope you can share how you feel about The Boy at the Top of the Mountain by John Boyne, because I've been really interested on this author and I'm thinking about reading something by him soon!
    Anyways, I hope you have a fantastic October!

    1. Oh you so should! I would really recommend The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by him. It was so upsetting but so important! You too, Lais!
