Hi Everyone, How has your September been? Mine has been manic and the fact that it's already October has passed me by completely. Where does the time go? I mean we are counting down to Christmas already in shops.... Oh god that means I need to start thinking about presents. Who leaves it to the last minute?

With the start of September came the start of term at work, it's never been busier, additional roles to my job has been interesting but also exciting. That also comes with hardly no reading. I read a grand total of 1 book and I guess a half even though I've DNFd it for the time being. September also brought along Back to Skool theme on my blog and towards the end of the month I was very excited to attend the Hot Key Book Blogger Brunch which has sparked my magical reading this month.

I'm hoping October will be more productive, with spooky reads as well as half term approaching which means more reading. Yay.

Books I Read and Book of the Month
A Place Called Perfect by Helena Duggan - 5/5
As a librarian I'm really trying to broaden my reading to younger books, older middle grade and when the publisher approached about this I couldn't not say no. Look at the covers and these are honestly the perfect books for autumn and halloween.

A small haul this month but one that I'm thankful of. The Spellslinger series book were from the Blogger Event and Charmcaster is Sebastien's actual author's copy which is awesome. Last year I read Otherworld, that I was book I couldn't put down and a total surprise that it was a book I loved. So I can't wait to immerse myself in the same gaming world once again in it's sequel Otherearth. Whilst I didn't receive much I did buy the new V.E. Schwab, Vengeful which I hope to read very soon as well as a few others.
