While I met nearly all of my September 2023 reading goals, the month was very quiet and filled with primarily okay books. Here’s my wrap-up.
Over the last couple of months, through the most challenging season of my life, I’ve been reading a lot less than I normally do. Rather than 25-30 books each month, I’m struggling to get through my much smaller TBR. However, September included a few highly-anticipated reads that I wound up really enjoying, as well as a ton of ARCs that I was truly honored to receive.
I’m curious to see how the last quarter of the reading year will turn out. Will I pack it with seasonal stories and finish off my list of 23 in 2023? I guess we’ll have to wait and see. For now, keep scrolling to see what I picked up during September.
