Last month’s deets on I Heart Romance & YA
Happy new month, Bookworms! I had a pretty productive September! Not only was I busy at work, I also read quite a bit. Oh, and I have met 2 of my challenge goals! Yup! I have completed the Historical Romance Reading Challenge and the 2017 Discussion Challenge! Isn’t that amazing?! I have also read 96 books so far, which means that I am really close to my 100 book reading goal!
I have also been rereading a lot of my favorites for the last couple of months. It has been a while since I read some of these books and I am quite delighted that I still enjoy them as much as when I first read them.
I also avoided blogging for most of September. Which was pretty good. I have been reading more, as a result.
September was also Pierre’s birthday month and we spent a weekend in Vegas. We also saw Love for the second time but I thought it was not as good as the first time we saw it.
I listened to The Duchess Deal on audio and it was the perfect format IMO.

Pierre and I saw Kingsman: The Golden Circle and we were a little underwhelmed. I guess it’s because we already saw Kingsman: The Secret Service a couple of years ago, and that blew our minds because it was so new. There were still funny bits, though.
Project Runway is back! And although I can’t design or sew to save my life (okay, I can mend stuff), I absolutely ADORE this show!
Have you ever tried “unplugging” for a few days? How did it feel?
Congratulations on your challenges. I feel like it’s been easy to complete my challenges, because I have been lucky enough to get so many great books. Vegas is somewhere I would like to visit. I am not a gambler, but there is so much to look at, and I love shows. Project Runway has been incredible this season. I am most impressed with them using models of different sizes. *applause, applause*

YES! Absolutely! Also… I wrote this post before the Sunday night Vegas shooting and it really hit home for me because my husband and I love to go to music festivals… and I was in Vegas the week before 🙁

I LOVED The Sea King and I know you will too!!
And you read some great books here. I really enjoyed The Duchess Deal, even though there were quite a few contemporary tones to it, for some reason it worked for me.
So many good books you read too. I love Lady Sophia’s Lover—Ross was great, and the grandfather was hilarious.

Gaahhh I can’t wait to read The Sea King! I have been holding off on it because I have not been in the mood to, but I have a long weekend this week, so hopefully, I will be able to read it then!
My September was not very productive but that’s okay, I plan to make up for that this month. I loooove rereading old favorites. I have this bad habit of just wanting to reread old books this past year when I have so many other new books I should probably reading instead. Unfortunately I am a mood reader so that means most of the time those new books are being ignored… for now. Happy October!
YES! Me too, Nereyda! I am a mood reader and for the past couple of months, I have been rereading my faves… It is comforting, actually!
Hope this month will be more productive for you!
September wasn’t very productive for me but I mostly watched TV. I’ve been wanting to re-read a lot of my favorites but I also feel like maybe I won’t enjoy them as much and they’ll be ruined for me, has that ever happened to you? I hope you have a wonderful October!

It has happened. Especially the Old School Romance that I read when I was in high school. But I think it is just that they did not age well. For the newer ones that I have reread, it hasn’t ruined me yet. I have been rereading a lot this year, which is fun actually. I discovered a lot of stuff when I reread…

Congrats on finishing your challenges! I used to “unplug” for several weeks ever summer, but I haven’t done it in years. I hope you have a great October!

thanks, Aj! I haven’t been having a lot of mojo to blog the last few months and I think in September was the month where I really unplugged for most of the month
Looks like you did so well last month:) I need to make my October count! September was just so busy I could barely read.

Project Runway is SUCH a fun t.v. show. And I love the Lunar Chronicles a lot, so I hope that you are enjoying it! I love to see your reading progress every month, it inspires me to DO as well. Happy October!

Thanks, Sophie! I am rereading TLC and I DO LOVE IT SO MUCH! 😀 Hope you do something like this on your blog, as well!

I keep thinking about your trip to Vegas. Yikes! I am still in a state of disbelief at how anyone can do something so horrible. I’m thankful you were not in Vegas at the same time. On a lighter note–we watched Project Runway last year a lot and I can’t sew either, but the ideas and implementation of them that these designers have is amazing to watch in action.
It’s my guilty pleasure…among other TV shows…
Vegas is devastating. Especially now with all the news coming out.. 🙁

I saw Love years ago and really enjoyed it—sorry it wasn’t as good this year!

I know 🙁 I guess I wasn’t as blown away as I was the first time I saw it…
