Where did September go!? It felt like this month just flew by. I did get a good amount of books read, though. I was kind of in a Romance/Contemporary mood and those books are always a little easier to fly right through. In life news, there is something wrong with my apartment. There’s a pretty strong sewer-like smell that kind of comes at different times and it’s so awful. I’ve called the management office about 4 times and they have come and tried several different things to fix it, but they’ve also said it didn’t really smell like that when they were here. I feel like I’m going crazy and I am now looking for at new apartments. In more interesting life news, I got to see my 9 month old niece for a bit this past weekend. She’s such a cute, happy baby. I also got to see my cousin’s toddler who is adorable.

Reviewing the Unreviewed: September 2018
I’ve decided it’s time for a little blogging break. I may still be doing some blog hopping and checking on twitter, but my plan right now is to just kind of step away from it all for a few weeks. We’ll see how it goes, though. I will be back on October 22nd with a review of The Darkest Star by JLA.

Wow you have an awesome month!😁 Good for you for taking a break! Enjoy your time away and read lots of awesome books Steph! 💕💕
Thank you! I’m looking forward to a little break to just focus on reading and other life things!
I am SO happy you liked Beartown!! That really sucks about the apartment issues. I hope it gets fixed or you find something else quickly. Moving and packing is the worst, though. I feel for you! Our basement gets a musty smell in the transition from air conditioning to heat. I hate it. It’s an old house and I try everything I can to keep it dried out so it doesn’t smell down there.
Enjoy your blogging break!
It’s definitely one of my favorite books of the year. Thanks again for letting me borrow it! My apartment is driving me crazy. I really don’t want to go through the process of moving, but it is something I’ve actually been thinking about for awhile, so maybe this is just the push I need. Because I really can’t stand this for much longer!!
I hope everything goes well for you with your apartment and you have a great break with lots of relaxing reading time.
Thanks so much!
Noooo don’t take a hiatus, I’ll miss your posts to much! But, I understand completely!! So sorry about your apt. I’m so sensitive to smells I’m not sure I could handle it. Hope you get it sorted soon! ❤
I’m sorry to leave for awhile, but it does make me feel good that I’ll be missed! 🙂 And thank you. This whole apartment nonsense is killing me. Hopefully I’ll have a solution one way or another by the time I get back!
I know I would be feeling the same! And we all need breaks! (as long as you come back)!
Wow! You had a great month!
I am sad by the hiatus, but I understand. 😦
Thanks! Reading a lot of Romance and YA always means more books for the month for me.
I’m loving Beartown right now! Hoping everything goes well for you with your apartment and enjoy your blog break!
Can’t wait for you to be back at it though!
I’m so happy you’re enjoying Beartown! Definitely one of my top books of the year. And thank you! Hopefully I will have some good news regarding all this apartment nonsense when I’m back!
Enjoy your break! I hope everything works out with your apartment or you find a fabulous new one!
Thank you! Hopefully I will have good news soon!
The books I bought/books I’ve actually read is so real lol I’m envious of how many books you manage to read every month :O
Lol yeah I thought that one was very accurate! I was in a mood to read Romance/Contemporary this month, so I always manage to read those a little more quickly than anything else and that means I have time for a lot of them 😁
Great wrap! You had a great reading month! Enjoy your break and hope you have a Wonderful October! 🙂
Thank you! October has been good so far (except for this crappy weather!). I hope October has been good for you, as well!
