Month In Review: September 2014


October has come and that means it is time for the monthly wrap up post! September has been a good reading month with nine and a half books read. I’m coming close to reaching my Goodreads goal of 70 books… Most likely I will reach that number next month already with two months to spare, yay! 😀

I’m still in the process of updating and improving my blog… Some may have noticed I’ve changed my review format slightly, and I’m slowly changing all previous reviews. I’m also trying to write all older pending reviews, and I’m hopefully finally posting my book review policies as well this month. I’m keeping my fingers crossed I will have a lot of blog time as well as reading time this month!

I’ve received and read four ARC’s; three through the Guest Reviewer Program at Ethereal Book Reviews and the last one send by the author (thanks again Catherine Aerie!). Also, I’m rereading the Harry Potter series at the moment, which I will probably finish before the end of this year. Gotta love magic! Now on to some numbers:

  • Number of books read in September: 9 1/2
  • Total number of books read this year: 64
  • Total number of pages read in September: 3.376
  • Total number of pages read this year: 23.314

I’m surprised with the amount of pages read already this year! The number is way higher than last year, and there are still three months left to reach the 30.000 mark… Definitely do-able if I keep up my reading!

As for the books I’ve read last month; out of the nine books on my September TBR, I’ve managed to read a whopping seven! titles. Which is a miracle, since I normally don’t stick to my TBR lists… Only Gardens Of The Moon and Gone Girl are still left unread, but those two titles will be read soon for sure. Below you can find a list of the books I’ve read sorted by rating from high to low; two reviews are still pending and will be posted before next Monday.
