Monthly Wrap Up

September Wrap Up


In September I read 12 books for a total of 2,607 pages and an average of 87 pages per day. I’m pleasantly surprised by how much reading I accomplished this month; I think what helped was reading more novellas and middle-grade.

I’m happy to say I enjoyed most of what I read this month. While nothing was deplorable, A Bollywood Affair and Auxiliary London 2039 were my least liked reads, though they still kept me entertained enough not to DNF.
