I'd Tell You I Love You, but Then I'd Have to Kill You by Ally Carter
I didn't read the biggest number of books, but the ones I did read this month were mostly enjoyable. School and stuff has started but I don't think it's interfering much with my book obsession...
My favourite September read: Twenty Boy Summer (9.2/10) by Sarah Ockler!! Read my review of it here!
**Also this month, I...
Reviewed two movies, Inception and Toy Story 3

Had my birthday! xD
Started a new bi-weekly feature, Poetry Slam Sundays
Shared some procrastination tips! ;)
Well, I'm pretty happy with the way September went down, I was pretty productive on my blog and cranked out some more reviews. I'm trying my best to improve my reviews, I want to raise my standard so I'm trying to put a lot of thought and effort into them. Going to continue working on building my readership, look forward to a contest... very soon!
I'm going to visit my brother on the other side of the country in the last week of October, but I will most likely pre-schedule some posts. Also, this means I need to make sure I'm completely on track for school so I don't fall behind with my 'vacation days' so I'll be somewhat busy this month.
On the blog, look out for a couple contests, more reviews and more random posts!
