My Month in Books | September Stats

Happy October, bookworms! Before the new month gets underway, let’s take a look back at September. I love looking at my stats, especially if they reveal something I wasn’t expecting. This month seems pretty standard to me, but it’ll give you, lovely readers, a glimpse into my reading life for the month of September.

Into the stats!

Overall, I’m still on a bit of a reading high after going hard in the month of August for the NEWTs readathon. I fully expect to not read nearly as many in October. I didn’t have a bad reading month with the average rating of 3.8, but I only had two standouts out of 21 so hopefully I’ll find more gems soon. Also, wish my sagging shelves luck: October has 3 library sales all on the same weekend!
