September Reads

Another month has passed and even though I have been exercising, I haven’t listened to my audiobook. I was too busy catching up on Youtube and I have this tendency if I’m near the end of something, I won’t finish it, so I won’t be done with it. It is a really bad habit and I am trying to get out of it. I will for sure be done with the last Airhead book this month for sure. No more putting it off. I’m not finding it that great anyway. I wanted to share some older reviews that I’m not sure if I have shared on this blog before. If so, it has been a really long time and I thought you guys might enjoy it on the months that I have no books to review. It is kinda like revisiting old favorites or hate its. Let me know if you like this or not. I am going through my Goodreads and sorting by oldest reviews first. I think this will be a lot of fun! Oh, btw, I have read 429 books since I started counting in February 2009. Apparently, there are a number of books that I never put the date that I read them on. We shall go through them first.

The Luxe (Luxe, #1)The Luxe by Anna Godbersen

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book so much with all of its plot twists and drama.

City Girl (Yellow Rose, #3)City Girl by Lori Wick

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Best book in the series

Pregnancy: For The First Time Moms, What They Don't Tell You (Pregnancy Today Book 1)Pregnancy: For The First Time Moms, What They Don’t Tell You by Darell Spice

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Not very helpful if you know the basics.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Harry Potter, #6)Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

So SHOCKING!!

A Countess Below StairsA Countess Below Stairs by Eva Ibbotson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It was the best book about Royalty that I have ever read.

I also apparently barely wrote about the books that I didn’t bother putting a read date for. It is a good sampling to see what kinds of books that I like and enjoy for better recommendations. I really loved The Luxe series and I am so sad that I read all of them. They were my guilty pleasure books in high school. I really love anything that has to do with ages of luxury like the Victorian age or the roaring 20s. I just love all that glitz and glamour. I think I was born into the wrong time era. I would have loved to live during that time and been courted.

With Love,

  1. I think the author of the luxe just came out with a new book? Goodreads emails me whenever a new book comes out by an author I’ve read. It sounded like historical fiction but I can’t really remember. The cover is blue. Lol

      1. Yes, I think I read the first one, but I’m not sure. I have it on my goodreads list though. I am pretty sure that I read the first one. Bright Young Things.

      2. I borrowed mine from the Library. I actually just finished my book for my IT class, but I realized that it is my school’s own personal book to teach the class with. So, I’m not counting it as a book. I would give it a negative review anyway. The challenges that went with the book didn’t touch upon anything that was taught. lol. Youtube taught me Python.

      3. Ric had a couple of teacher written textbooks too. My history professor freshman year gave us “what he thought was important ” from the original “textbook” and emailed it to us. It was still 500 pages. Lol. Some textbooks are really not great, but at least you finished reading it. I’m making pillsbury cookies, then I’m off to read the last chapter of my textbook as well. But this book is okay at least. Just boring.

      4. I only have the one text book. For History, it is an embedded activity based program. I usually keep up to that week by week. I don’t get enough time to ever really start a week ahead of time. I made cupcakes last night. lol. I’m taking notes for my IT class that comes before I have to complete the challenges. Dean is napping until 3 and then I won’t be back to doing homework until 8 tonight and it’ll be history. So glad that today was a day-off Holiday.

      5. I had a book like that before as well. I’m glad today is a holiday too, though I worked this morning. But normally I would get to a house for 9, leave at 1, eat lunch and head to the library for 2, and leave there at 5 or 6 depending on the day. I’d get home and then have to do homework until 8 or 8:30. At least today I’ve got several hours free. My class is wrapping up this week so I’ve got a major project due on Sunday. I’ll be glad when it’s over. I hate rushing around like this. Last week I literally stopped eating dinner halfway through my meal because it was taking too long. At least I can rest a little when this class ends.

      6. That’s a good thing. I keep thinking to myself that I get no break this semester. I am literally going until the day before Christmas Eve. I will be so happy when I am done with school. I’m also not looking forward to one of my classes, because I think it might be hard or I am just overthinking it.

      7. Most people don’t get breaks during the semester if they’re going full time! It will go much quicker than you think it will. Mine is half over after next week. It’s flown by. I’m sure the class will go fine!

      8. There is usually a rest period from one semester to the next. I’ve never done college where you didn’t get a break. The class is pre-calculus and next semester Calculus.

      9. Yes, but it seems that your classes go for seven weeks, which is half a semester on a regular college schedule. I think you should at least have a few weeks to rest, I’m just guessing that the schedule you do follows a somewhat similar system, which is why there’s no break.

      10. They go for 8 weeks. 🙂 Usually there is a one week rest period, but January started later this year. All the semesters got pushed ahead. So, this term there is no break in between. There is a two week break between the end of the year and the beginning of the year. There was a break from my July one to my September one. I haven’t looked at next year’s schedule yet, so I don’t know what it looks like. But this is like a 16 week semester. lol. I want a break! Maybe I’m just stressing b/c I haven’t had a vacation hoarding my PTO for my dad’s surgery.

      11. It will end up being ok. It will be nice to have time off for both work and school, even if you’re stuck at home for most of it. My seven week class is wrapping up this week and I’m glad. I was struggling to form sentences while talking to people in the library yesterday. I think everyone thought it was funny but it was embarrassing. Lol.

      12. No, usually I will remember it for months, sometimes years. I’m not kidding. Every once and a while I’ll remember something slightly dumb I said in elementary or middle school and it will haunt me for the rest of the day. I know it’s been long forgotten by everyone else but I’ll remember it forever!

      13. Well that must be nice! Every once and a while (which really means every few weeks) I’ll remember something I said in 3rd grade or on aol instant messanger in middle school. Then I proceed to fall into a shame spiral! It must be nice to forget most of it, I wish I could.

      14. I don’t remember most of my childhood. I only vividly remember high school which is cringy at times. I had a lot of trauma going on with my bio dad and was seeing a therapist. It’s called child trauma syndrome where your brain blacks out memories to protect you. Apparently, I was exposed to guns and violence with my bio dad, because one day I came home crying that I saw a handgun on the stoop of a neighbors doorway. My bio dad’s girlfriend lived in a really bad complex. I don’t remember any of this though. It’s a blank to me.

      15. The same thing happened to Bethany, she can only remember a few small things. I’ll ask her if she can remember any of the altercations between my dad and brother and she doesn’t. I wish I didn’t remember every single bad or even slightly awkward thing that happened to me as a child but I can’t seem to forget any of it!
