What Happened To My August Reading Challenge

Happy September, friends!
I just can’t believe that August is over and we are one step closer to Autumn. I’m so excited and I am ready to enjoy in sweaters, hot chocolate, and cool, rainy days. I can’t wait to see the nature changing its colors from green to yellow. Ah, lovely, right?

Autumn seemed to arrive suddenly that year. The morning of the first September was crisp and golden as an apple.

As you probably know, earlier in August I created the August TBR list and I promised to do my best to achieve that goal. I am quite ashamed to announce that I failed this time, which isn’t surprising. As a mood reader, it is difficult for me to stick with any kind of schedule, but it is important that I tried, right? I have read three books out of five that I picked for that month. I think I would read four of them, but one of the books hasn’t arrived yet. I’m still waiting for it.
Firstly, I have read Commute by Erin Williams and I really enjoyed reading it – it’s probably my favorite book of the month. I’m not used to reading graphic novels, but this one blew me away! I really loved it and I will definitely read more of Erin’s books. Also, later that month I have read The Art of Breaking Things by Laura Sibson and it was good, enjoyable read. It is something that I will definitely remember and gladly reread in the future.
Lastly, I have read This Time Will Be Different by Misa Sugiura and it was good. I didn’t enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed in the first two books, but maybe someday I will get back to it. I feel like I didn’t fully understand the book and rereading it would be a good idea.

I would probably read the fourth book Just Get Up: And Manifest Your Inner Genius by Isaac Samuel Miller, but the problem is that the book hasn’t arrived yet and I really wanted to read it. I hope it will arrive soon, I was really excited to read this one because I just love self-help books and August was all about self-help. It was so refreshing and now I am ready to enjoy in September.
However, I will not make any reading list for this month because as you can see I am very bad at it. One thing is sure – for this month I will choose something autumn associated and I will probably read some poetry collections. I have something in my mind, but I will not reveal it now. Instead, I will write book reviews and some book-related posts on this blog.

What is on your September reading list?
