The Sunday Snuggle W40/2019: September Wrap Up, Giveaway Winner

Hello readers!

I love this first week of October because it’s when all the Halloween TBRs and recommendations start showing up in blogs and I just love reading those. That’s how I found out about some of my favorite books of all time – I love a good creepy read.

The giveaway is now over and I’m happy to announce the winner!

🥳 The Orangutan Librarian🥳

I’ve DM-ed and emailed you about it, and I’m so glad you won – I’ve followed your blog for ages and have lots of fun with your posts, so I’m really content with the result! 🙂

September Wrap Up

September was a very productive month reading-wise, despite my tiny, tiny slump by the end of the month. Audiobooks made sure I stayed on track with my average of 2-3 books per week (also I read a lot of short books).

October Currently Reading

I’m still making my way through Girl of Fire! I am in a bit of a slump right now, so it’s taking me a while to finish it, but hopefully in a week or two I will.

As of now I’ve finished The Chain, but it will be part of the October Wrap Up, since I only finished it after September was over. This one too I buddy-read with my sister!

I’m still reading Mansfied Park, and I am probably going to still take a while, because I’m reading it on the Kindle and I am (still) trying to get more eARCs read, and I’m not very good at reading multiple e- books at the same time. So I will hopefully finish this by end of October, but no pressure at all.

I picked up A Spell of Winter and I’m about halfway through and loving it. It is gothic and slow-paced but at the same time it keeps me on my toes. Such a perfect read for the cold weather!

I got Trick Mirror on audio, and I’m enjoying it a lot so far – although some essays more than others. I look forward to reading more of it!

  1. It looks like September was a great month for you, for high ratings! Almost all 4s and 5s, that’s incredible!
    I’m definitely looking forward to your thoughts on Spell of Winter, I’m almost halfway through now and so engrossed- I’m glad everyone seems to be liking it so far! (I think you’ve finished now, if I remember correctly.) And Trick Mirror is on my TBR so looking forward to your review of that as well! I hope your October reading is excellent as well. 🙂

    • Yes!! I didn’t notice until writing this post how great the entire month was!

      This is a week old by now, I need to check if you wrote a post on A Spell of Winter!! What did you think of it?

      Thank you! 🙂

      • I haven’t gotten my Spell review up yet, it’s next in the queue! I mostly really enjoyed it though, especially the first 2/3. I loved the gothic tones and the fraught relationships. The war toward the end felt almost like an entirely different topic to me, and I’m still not sure how to feel about that development at the end with the MC’s mother. But I didn’t have any major issues and was totally HOOKED while reading, so it was largely a successful read for me! I rated it 4 stars as well. My review should be up at some point this week. (Tis the season for crazy work schedules, so I’m having a bit of a struggle keeping up!)
