*Platypire Read-A-Thon* September Results

How is September over already? I swear it was just March a couple days ago. I'm not going to lie, this month was a total bust for reading for me. Seriously, I feel like I didn't get any reading done, and my blog has been seriously lacking in reviews this month (I'm going to pretend that's purely because Joood - Hooligan and I put Review or Regret on hold for the month so she could recuperate from the devastation of Hurricane Harvey without having to worry about singing Justin Bieber. But really, I'd planned on trying to get all caught up on reviews this month anyway, and that did NOT happen. Maybe next month.) 

But anyway, without further ado, here are my reading/reviewing results for September.

R - Read
C - Currently Reading
T - To Be Read
NR - Needs Reviewed

R - Sneak Peek: The Devils Claw by Lara Dearman (Sept.) - Review
R - Sneak Peek: Calling Major Tom by David Barnett (Sept.) - Review

Titles link to reviews.
(I have nothing to put here, that's how bad I did at reviewing books this month.)

So I only finished reading five books and two sneak peeks in September. But aside from starting to read A Handbook for Mortals (check out my slow as molasses live tweeting of that experience here), the only books that got added to my list that weren't there at the beginning of the month were either last minute proofreads (or proofreads I managed to have put on my calendar in the wrong month), and my book club book which wasn't selected yet at the beginning of September. And other than that, I stuck to my list (which is way easier for me to do when I only read five books apparently.)

So September was a bomb for me reading-wise. On the bright side October can only be better! - Katie
