September 2018 Recap

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


It's ok to take a break - hand lettered typography

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.

  1. 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!!

  2. I hope everything goes well for you with your apartment and you have a great break with lots of relaxing reading time.

  3. 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)!

    • 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 😁
