September Birthday Month | Monthly Recap

What Happened this Month

This months Monthly Recap is a bit late… about 12 days late actually. Please blame my homework! I know I do! Truth is, last month was partly still a summer vacation month, which made reviewing and posting regularly so much better. This actually sounds like a random words sprouting from my mouth because if you check my archive you can see that this month actually held the most posts ever!

There keep being lots of firsts for new blogger me every month! This September I started the Monthly Recap, the On My Shelf and I had the first Guest Post on my blog by Katie Sise! She talked about three techniques to use when you want to get inside your characters mind. Quite handy actually! I got my first physical ARC: Goodbye, Rebel Blue. And wrote tons of reviews!

Also! This month was my Birthday. My 19th birthday! I got all kinds of spoiled, my sister gave me the competed works of the Bronté sisters and various informative books on Jane Austen and the time she lived in. Aside from the birthday present I got gifted quite some books and I won a few (That’s a first!). Like I said before: all kinds of spoiled.

Picture of the Month

This can only be described as the aftermath of my birthday party. My little nieces and nephews had left some clothes behind. My dad decided to wear them on his head for the weekly Happy Coffee Sunday picture we always make (tradition with my American friends). The coffee cup was a gift as well, fitting don't you think? :)

Top 3 Books I’ve Read this Month

goodbye

Goodbye, Rebel Blue is a book I’d requested on Netgalley and I got declined. I was absolutely bummed and decided to contact the publisher to ask if they still had a spare review copy they might consider sending to me. They replied right away and the next week I got the book in the mail. Let me tell you, it resulted in a happy dance and some squealing. I took the book everywhere and when I finally finished the books I had to read before being able to start on this one I finished it in no time. Loved it and reviewed it.

wild-cards

In the beginning of this month I heard that I got accepted on Netgalley to read Wild Cards by Simone Elkeles. I’ve read some of her previous works, which basically means that I read her Perfect Chemistry series and loved it! So I was absolutely psyched that I would be able to read this book before it hit the stores. As expected I liked it a lot, and that’s why it is in this months Top 3 pick.

The transferI know… this is a short story! But I am really anticipating Allegiant here and this was just so damn good! Though it didn’t make the waiting any easier, it was a good and short read.

This Months Favourite Quote

Julian, sometimes girls are like junk food. They look good, and they sure taste good… but you know they’re not healthy for you and cause cavities so it’s better to just leave ’em alone. Got me?

Its a corny quote, I know, but it had me laughing like a retard. For me, quotes like these perfectly sum up why I love reading. Reading can bring you to tears, make you angry as hell, or like the quote above did for me have you laughing out loud. And this is why this quote made this months favourite quote!
