September TBR | The Calm Before the Storm

Hello, hello friends!

I can’t believe that September is already here?! I know I’ve said that pretty much every month this year but it is even truer for September. It feels like not that long ago that I was starting my Masters last September and now we’re back in September and this time I’m about to start my PhD?? I honestly do not really know how I got here but September/October is going to be a pretty big month for me and the start of another 3-year foray (at the very least) into education. I am clearly a glutton for punishment.

Speaking of being a glutton for punishment, I still want to keep up with my blog in whatever way I can manage so I don’t foresee myself going anywhere over the next months. Not only am I going to be sticking around but I’m hoping to introduce a new feature to put the spotlight on indie and/or diverse authors. I’ve been wanting to introduce this since the start of the year and feel particularly inspired to after World Con in August. I’m also hoping to set up a book blogger streaming collective with a few blogger friends. So, lots of exciting things ahead. Do you think I’ll have time for reading too? 😂

September TBR

I’m not 100% sure what my TBR for September is going to be given that I haven’t been able to dedicate much thought space to books over the past few weeks and there are only 4 more TBR’s to go before the end of the year. I had so many books I had planned to read this year and I feel like I haven’t read very many of them. Rather than get overwhelmed about how little time we have left in 2019, I figure a good place to start is with the books leftover from my August TBR!

All 4 of these are also ARCs: 2 from July, 1 from earlier in the year and 1 from last Summer so reading them will not only be great in terms of reading them but also for knocking down some more ARCs from my list 💛

Being a book blogger feels like an eternal battle between wanting/needing to read ARCs, catching up with backlist books and keeping up with new releases. There are so many books I desperately want to read but have no idea when I will ever find the time! For now, I’ll add To Be Taught If Fortunate and A Monster Calls to my September TBR as these are two that immediately jumped out at me as wanting to be read. I received my copy of To Be Taught… just a few weeks ago and want to devour it immediately, especially post-Record of a Spaceborn Few which I read in August. A Monster Calls is one that I bought a few months ago from a fellow blogger that I really want to make time for. There’s lots of others I’d love to read but it all depends on how much time I’ll have this month.

Let me know what you’re reading plans are for September and how you’re planning on structuring your TBR now we’re so close to the end of the year. I need help planning my time haha.

  1. I feel that struggle so much. I think I’m trying to match arc for new releases/backlists, but so many times it feels like I’m not doing that or reading more backlists than arcs. I have a couple of books left over from August and I have a buddy read this month – we seem to be doing the series 😃

  2. This year has honestly gone by way too fast! Good luck with your September TBR! I had a few books I didn’t get around to reading in August, so will probably be added to my September TBR too. I’ve been seeing Mooncakes around a lot lately and I am very interested in checking that one out! I hope you get the chance to read A Monster Calls.

  3. September and October are going to be fairly ARC heavy months for me, but I’m setting aside November to partake in Sci-Fi month, where I hope to catch up on a lot of backlist! After that, December is going to be all about catch up – reading books that I put on TBRs earlier in the year that I didn’t actually get to. Hopefully it all goes according to plan, but when has that ever happened with a TBR?

    1. Ahhh that sounds like an excellent plan! I’m starting to feel a little burned out from sci fi St the moment so I’m considering maybe deferring some of these until November as ill be taking part in sci fi month as well. I think that it would definitely be helpful to plan the rest of the months as well to make the most of the last few months of 2019

  4. Good luck with your PHD!
    I know this fall is packed with book releases so I tried not to request many ARCs because I don’t need that kind of stress, LOL. I hope you’re able to balance reading and school and everything okay and good luck again! 🙂

  5. Good luck with both your PhD and your reading & blogging! Managing all of those sounds like a challenge I’m glad I don’t have to face up to right now, that’s for sure!
