Hello again honeybees! This is superrrr late because I didn’t have wifi for all of September (I was not having a great time) and only just got it about an hour before this is being posted. This TBR is already outdated but let’s pretend it’s the first, okay? September is a huge month for me, as I’m starting a new job, moving into a new place, and starting my second year of university (my first year in person!). A lot is going on but I still have big reading plans in place for the month.
Latinx heritage month is such a beautiful time of the year; full of culture exchanges and raising awareness of the beauty and issues in our communities. It lands in my favorite season (fall, and extends through my favorite holidays (Halloween and Dia de los Muertos) so there’s always a lot happening in this period of time to begin with lol.
Hopefully this is the perfect mix of spooky and comfort as we head into a busy month.
To Be Read
Blazewrath Games by Amparo Ortiz
This is a buddy read with Gabby @ Living In Libros and I’m so excited to read this all the way through. I think I need some dragons in my life. When I read the first 5% of this last year, it was gearing up to be a 5 star read, so I already know that jumping back into this will be a great decision.
Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas
I can’t believe I haven’t read this all the way through yet. I’ve heard nothing but good things about it and it’s calling my name as the weather gets colder and the nights get darker. Cannot wait to see what the hype is all about.
Invisible Women: Data Bias in a World Designed for Men by Caroline Criado Perez
*Not part of my Latinx Heritage Month TBR* This is a nonfiction and one that I’m counting as a comfort read…weird right? I miss nonfiction books. They take a lot out of me sometimes but I get this feeling while reading them, like I’m actually smart and understand what’s going on. I like feeling like a smart person, especially since uni has me feeling like I have one braincell half the time. I bought this one years ago and I’ve been eying it lately.
Cazadora by Romina Garber
I tried to read this immediately on its release date but I was in a slump after finishing the wonderful An Ember In The Ashes and just couldn’t get into another whirlwind fantasy at the time. I think once I put some space between myself and fantasy for a bit, I’ll be able to come back to Cazadora with a clear head and a heart full of love, as I truly did enjoy the first book (and shout about it to anyone who will listen).
Spin Me Right Round by David Valdes
This was unsolicited book mail from the publisher but it quickly became one of my most anticipated reads for the end of the year. I like to read synopses, add them to my TBR, and then forget the majority of what they’re about before I read them. So I really only remember something about gay time travel involving a Latinx boy and that’s enough for me to want to finish my current read and open it immediately. I was getting Back To The Future vibes from the synopsis (one of my fave movies!!!) which makes me think this will be something very different from anything I’ve read thus far.
- Read three books.I set this goal low because I didn’t want to fail again. This is a super busy month and while writing this, I’ve already finished two books and am 10% away from finishing another. I didn’t want to adjust this goal because if all else fails, at least I accomplished this goal.
- Post four times on my blog. It’s been like pulling teeth to get a post out of me lately. I have so many half written posts in my drafts that need to get finished and I just need to suck it up and put those finishing touches on them. I don’t think I’ll be able to catch up on my reviews (but that might be a good challenge for Blogmas) but I do have a few selected titles I’d like to share my thoughts on.
- Spend less money on Starbucks. I spent almost $100 at Starbucks last month and ummm… yeah. That’s not going to happen ago lol. My goal in general is to not spend so much in all areas, but I definitely don’t need so much Starbucks.
How’s your month going so far? What are you hoping to read for the rest of the month? Do you have any Latinx reads that you’re excited about? I’d love to hear all about your month!
