Well, when I left off at the end of August I had hardly read anything at all.Â Something happened though as September rolled around.
I started reading again.Â Seriously reading.Â As in I read 5 books by September 2.Â Once again romance novels paved the way out of a reading slump.
I read 18 books in September.
The books I read were:
- All fiction
- Â 0 finished audiobooks – I kept starting and abandoning them.
- Set in the U.S., England,Â and Haiti
What were my favorites?
These two were some of the best plotted romance novels I think I’ve ever read.Â They both have twists in them that kept the romance formula from getting routine.Â I love both authors from other works and these books reminded me of why.
I didn’t add anything in September.
What I’ve read so far in 2019:
- Righteous by Joe Ide

Wow, 18 books is a sprint out of a slump. So happy for you! I know how frustrating slumps are, especially when you lose the desire to do an activity you know brings you joy.
Glad you broke out of your reading slump in a BIG way!!
Wow, congrats on reading 18 books! I wish I could do that. Iâ€™ve been very lazy with reading this year. Happy October!
