September Reading Wrap Up

September 2019 Reading Wrap UpSeptember flew by in such a blur! My husband and I were blessed with a baby who manages to sleep in two long chunks at nighttime at only a few weeks old (he takes after his mom!) but even with getting more sleep than expected, life with a newborn is definitely a whirlwind.

With that, I wasn’t sure how much reading I’d actually get to but was pleasantly surprised to be able to complete a few this month. Using my nook (and nook app on my phone) really helped as I could easily read for just a few minutes at a time wherever I happened to be when I had time to spare. And I found another favorite book of the year!

Ready to see what I read and reviewed?

Books I reviewed:

Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury

Fahrenheit 451 was an intriguing story that I’d consider revisiting again in another 10-15 years.

On the stack for next month:

October 2019 TBR

Much like September, I don’t expect to read too many books in October, but these are just some I’m thinking about picking up. A couple of these are print books on my shelf, but more than half are books I grabbed when I found deals to get them free on my nook. Since most of my recent reading has been done on my phone, I figured this would be the perfect opportunity to finally give them a shot. We’ll see how it goes!

What are you reading or planning on reading next?

  1. My husband and I are currently listening to The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware, and I think we like it better than In A Dark, Dark Wood so far! However, Ware has this horrible tendency to slow the WHOLE plot down in the last 80%, which drives me insane.

  2. First off, wicked big congrats on the little one! Glad to hear the first month of sleeping wasn’t hell on earth for you. I pray it stays that way 😀

    What nook do you have? I have an old simple touch lying around the house but once I got my kindle oasis, I’ve not used any other reader. I was tempted when Nook came out with their 8in reader earlier this year, but couldn’t justify the cost.

    have a great October 🙂

  3. I’m reading Fahrenheit 451 again too. I first read it more than 30 years ago and it seemed like science fiction then. now it feels like it could happen tomorrow, a bit like Handmaid’s Tale. Great recommendations here, thanks!
