September Whispers // I WAS BUSY OKAY?! + Twitter LOVES me (?) + Cookies

I think September was secretly plotting on killing me, just sayin’.

Like hello what do you call –>

  • drowning in homework
  • getting sick and dying inside
  • not blogging for a week
  • not breathing BECAUSE NO TIME

I CALL IT ATTEMPT AT MURDER. Luckily I survived right? OTHERWISE, WHO WOULD LOOK AFTER MY CACTUS? October is a lot nicer to me because September was ACTUALLY SO MEAN TO ME. *glares*


I read 10 books! Which is surprising because school PRACTICALLY TOOK OVER MY LIFE? But I did a lot of reading on the weekend! Which was actually so great. I even got to breathe??

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater ★★★★★  // So magical and weird and I LOVED IT SO MUCH. And the writing was gorgeous and A D A M. So much love for this book.

Champion by Marie Lu ★★★★★  // My. Feels. Are. Crushed. I WILL NEVER BE OKAY AGAIN.

Cinder by Marissa Meyer ★★★★☆ // An amazing retelling! Enjoyed every moment of it.

Spellbook of the Lost and Found by Moria Fowley-Doyle ★★★☆☆ // A little bit disappointed, not as good as The Accident Season but still super enjoyable.

The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater ★★☆☆☆ // I AM SO SAD I DIDN’T LIKE THIS BOOK? SO SO DISAPPOINTING. and boring as well.


Illuminae by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman  ★★★☆☆ // I CRY. So disappointing! Amazing ship but fell short on the sci-fi elements for me. #sadface


Wonder by  R.J. Palacio // Okay?? Not sure what to think. Maybe I’ll like it? WHO KNOWS.

Vicious by V.E Schwab // My brother is reading this at the moment and HE LOVES IT. I have converted him to a Schwabian.

Bone Gap by Laura Ruby // Started this and it’s very simple. Can’t wait to continue!

Goodbye Days by Jeff Zentner // Really excited to read this one since I loved The Serpent King


An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret  RogersonStarfish by Akemi Dawn Bowman

An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson ★★★★☆ // I actually liked this?? I DOn’T EVEN KNOW ANY MORE.



Oh hey, I WENT ON A UN-ANNOUNCED WEEK HIATUS. Haha, OOPS. Honestly? School gave me 686 homework that week and I didn’t even have time BECAUSE I WAS SO STRESSED, I hardly any time to even like to THINK ABOUT BLOGGING.

I also feel like my posts were of very little quality?? Like I just…Idk MAN. I feel like my stats are going downhill and I’m not putting that much effort into my posts anymore.

VERDICT: Not a very good blogging month.


I became more active on Goodreads! I made a lot of ‘friends’ and interacted a lot. WHich was kind of bad as well? because I wasted a lot of time on it as well and I HAD SCHOOL. And I shouldn’t have got so addicted. (ALSO FRIEND ME)

Lu interviewed me! BECAUSE SHE’S NICE LIKE THAT. It was like Cake queen and Ice cream queen AND IT WAS SO AWESOME.

I hit 1337 likes! Okay, don’t’ ask me why WordPress notifies me of these things? BUT YES THIS IS VERY COOL OKAY.

I decided to quit blog hopping and I WILL ONLY BE COMMENTING BACK. Apart from like my favorite 10 blogs, if you don’t comment on my blog, I won’t have time to check out your blog. When I have holidays I’ll check out your blog regardless but right now I have no time. SORRY GUYS.

I entered like 686 giveaways. #sorrynotsorry. I WILL PROBABLY NOT WINY ANY OF THEM but retweeting giveaway tweets is actually addicting. I need to stop okay. SOMEONE STOP ME.

One of my tweets went subtly viral. I THANK YOU, ALL FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART. EVEN my sister appreciates me okay??? I HONESTLY AM SQUEAKING THE FREAKING THE GEEKING OUT. LOVE YOU ALL.

ALSO ACE OF SHADES. Sorry, I AM A MESS. Amanda Foody is giving so many teasers of her new book AND I JUST NEED IT. She is literal genius okay? I NEED THE BOOK RIGHT NOW OKAY?! I like NEED it in my HANDS. I’m dying. Send help. OR HER NEW BOOK PLEASE.

And look Cait @ Paper Fury FREAKING FOLLOWED MY TWITTER. I AM SO NOT FREAKING THE FLIP OUT OKAY?? I AM NOT OKAY. In other news, this gu with a blue tick followed me BUT I have no idea who he is SO LET’S STICK TO FANGIRLING OVER CAIT FOLLOWING ME. AGHAHA.

My blog design is being appreciated. But a reminder that I DID NOT DESIGN IT. All thanks go to Emily @ Books and Cleverness (link in my footer) for designing. STILL, THANK YOU RAIN FOR GIVING ME THIS AWARD. It means SO MUCH TO ME! downtime tracks (2)

I’m also on a Netgalley ban BECAUSE I NEED TO CATCH UP. Until 2018 I declare myself banned from requesting any books from NetGalley. I have so many ARC’s on there THAT I NEED TO READ like yesterday okay??






B L O G G I NG  &  O T H E R

E X C I T I N G   N E W S


School kind of took over my life. Like kind of? Weekends were okay but honestly…? I JUST WAS SO STRESSED OKAY.

I didn’t do yoga? I went from Yogi Queen to the person who died. Hi, I disappoint myself so much.

I’m doing Nanowrimo soon!  I am actually really scared because this is my first time but I am really motivated and I have a plot and I really like it BUT I CAN’T TELL YOU much. I haven’t even started outlining. Send help.

I only managed to watch the first episode of GBBO and…?? It’s okay? LIKE THE PREsENTERS ARE PRETTY COOL; I like them. But I feel like Paul gives out too many handshakes and NO THEY SHOULD BE RARE?? And I haven’t had time to catch up with the rest of the episodes.

I ate a waffle.It tasted great, to be honest. I HAD NO ICE CREAM WHICH WAS TORTURE but it’s very cold here?? SO LIKE I don’t think ice cream was the best especially because I got ill.

I honestly didn’t do much apart from like…SCHOOL. I reserved a lot of library books and spent a lot of time emailing publishers for ARC’s but PEOPLE DON’T SHIP INTERNATIONAL AND I AM SAD

I baked cookies! Which was super fun AND THEY TASTED DELICIOUS OKAY??? I love baking.


And if my recaps couldn’t get any longer… OH WAIT THEY COULD. I’m going to add a quick section for goals. Since I’ve just started there’ll be done from last month because THEY DON’t ExIST.

{goals for next month}

  • Reach 1350 followers (currently 1262 followers)
  • Order Our Dark Duet and my Bullet Journal
  • Buddy read ODD with Lu
  • Post better quality posts
  • Stick to my blogging schedule – no unplanned hiatus, please.
  • hopefully, get accepted for at least ONE PHYSICAL ARC
  • Read at least 8 books
  • 3 of them should be from Netgalley
  • Stop procrastinating and do homework on time and NOT LAST MINUTE!!
  • Prepare for Nano
  • Have some ice cream excuse me

Let's WhisperHow was your September! TELL ME ALL THE THINGS. What was your favorite read? Did you do any exciting things? ARE YOU SCARED FOR NANOWRIMO TOO? What are your goals for next month? AND DID YOU HAVE ANY ICE CREAM?? (feel free to link me to your recaps!)

  2. I looooove your blog design so much! Had no idea Emily designed it, but now I’m not surprised at all because her blog is GOALS!!! ❤ ❤ ❤

    Don't apologize for taking a week off, girl! I had to do the same thing this month!

    I'm so envious that you can read 10 books in a month. I've only read 3 so far and I was straight up celebrating my achievement hahaha!

  3. I’m doing NaNo too! Next month I will finish the last little details of my books – figuring out some stuff and make the text more light – and do some study for my next book and NaNo too.

    Talking about Goodreads I fell culprit, because I’m one of those “firends”. But the sad reality is that I’ve barely time to be on there. Really, how people manage to have even a social life?
    By the way, I’m so happy for The Raven Boys but sad about Dream Thieves. It actually happened the contrary to me 🙂

      I spend more time on Goodreads than I should! I hope you get more time for reading and GR too! YESS I LOVED THE RAVEN BOYS. But The Dream Thieves was sooo boring for me. I hope I like Blue lilly lilly blue better!

    Anyways — wow we read a lot of the same books this month!! Like 3. But then all the other ones are books I’ve read as well too??? (Except for The Book Thief… hahahhahaaha.) Also, I’m glad you think the same for Spellbook! (I KNOW YOU STOLE THAT “WORD APPEARS EVERYWHERE NOW” THING FROM IT THO.) I’ll have to hunt your GR review down if you wrote one.

    Also I had a hard time deciding between Warcross and Our Dark Duet but frankly,, WARCROSS IS SO GOOD. Join me and Ju in screaming about it. (Also we need to make a Hangouts group chat together ajdfl;kaj;sldfkasd.)

    Okay last I checked your friend count (stalkerish, I know… I WAS JUST LOOKING AT YOUR PROFILE and noticed your friend count okay??) it was at like 100 or something and NOW IT’S AT FRICKING 200 WHEN DID THIS HAPPEN. Like obviously YES because you’re a great person but just… A;JLDKFJASD. Idk why I’m freaking out over this??

    What are your 10 favorite blogs, hmmmmm? Also YES YES YE SYES YES EYSE YSE YOU’RE DOING NANOWRIMO OMGGGGG YESSSSS ILSA I WILL BE THERE TO HELP YOU IF YOU NEED IT (even tho this is like my second time…) Oh and congrats on that Tweet going viral!! And getting 1,337 likes!! WordPress stopped notifying me of those achievement thingies and I’m sad. 😦

    1. I’m SORRY. I wish I could send you the cookies but they are all finished (and all mysteriously disappeared)

      “I KNOW YOU STOLE THAT “WORD APPEARS EVERYWHERE NOW” THING FROM IT THO” Honestly tht was a coincidence! i do remember that being mentioned but here was what actually gave me the inspo
      1)we learnt a new word in English
      2)I saw it in the raven boys the very same day
      3)I showed it to my friend
      4)I thought it makes a good GR status


      People love me so much, I have so many friends? JUST KIDDING, i don’t even know how. You have 275 friends or something (I’m guessing?)

      10 favourite blogs? WELL WELL. They include YOUrs and Kris and Cait and Sahsa and a few others. BUT THAT SHALL REMAIN SECRET.

      I AM SO ExciTED FOR NANO I CANNOT EVEN. BUT I AM SO SCARED TOO. I think I can actually win it though?!

  6. Congrats on not dying from school!! (I think I did. A tad bit. Might just be a ghost atm. Just in time for Halloween which is brilliant!) Death by school sounds intriguing and awfully boring at the same time somehow.
    I loved The Raven Boys but I am pushing trough Dream Thieves since…july…yeah…I WANTED TO LIKE IT SO BADLY!!
    International shipping is the bane of my existence. Why oh why does it cost so much huh?? If I were a publisher I would pay for your shipping because you deserve it!! You should get all the ARCs (look at me making heartfelt complimets)!
    And now that I remained chill for the duration of this comment I will just Assdfahjakallahdgsj YOU LINKED TO MY POST?? THANK YOU??? Ok I am squealing so so much #sorryneighbors.

  9. Amazing post, as always! Hope you’re feeling better, and congrats on all your follows ☺️ Why have I still not read any VE Schwab??!! Teach me your ways of reading 10 books a month while keeping up with class work because I can literally only manage 3-4 books a month now I’m back at uni 😫 good luck with NaNoWriMo and all your other October goals ❤️


      1. I STILL HAVEN’T READ ANY VE SCHWAB!! Still have Vicious on my shelf, possibly a 2018 read? I’m going to try and find more time in my schedule for reading, especially after I graduate in the summer 🎉 I started 2017 with 8 books a month, but that slowly went down 😅 Always reading! ☺️ Happy New Year!!


  10. I have eaten ice cream this month, since you asked, and I weep for you that you have none! What is life without ice cream? I am glad for you that you ate a waffle though. And baking cookies is good for the spirit! Also eating cookies…yum.
    I sympathize with you SO MUCH about school. School has been taking over my soul and my blogging life is virtually nonexistent at the moment which is very sad. I really appreciate you mentioning my post! I myself had nearly forgotten of its existence. Merci buckets.
    I read no books this past month and now I am dead. Seriously, school robs me of my sanity. But I have kept up with writing my story. That is about it right now.
    My goals for next month are as follows:
    1) Survive School
    2) Don’t die
    This might prove difficult as I am already dead, but we will see how it goes.
    Thanks again for mentioning me, and good luck with juggling school and blogging and all sorts of other essential life things like ice cream and waffles!

  12. Wow, I should probably read that post you linked to about staying on top of commenting. I think I’m still pretty good at it, but I’ve definitely been slacking a little compared to the past! I also get your choice to stop blog hopping. I like hopping and can often find interesting stuff that way, but other times I devote a good chunk of time to it and just don’t find anything I’m captured by at all. It can be very hit or miss, so definitely a good thing to cut back on to focus on school and whatnot.

  13. No more blog hopping? NOOOO! Haha, I’m kidding, you should always do what’s best for you, so good for you for knowing what that is!
    I really hope you reach your followers goal for next month, and I know how you feel with the Netgalley ban, I’ve put myself on one too. I requested too many when I first started and now I have to deal with what I’ve done…

  15. Wooow I can’t believe how many followers you have. Share your secrets please???? It sucks that you didn’t enjoy The Dream Thieves. I found that both The Dream Thieves and Blue Lily, Lily Blue dragged a bit in the middle meaning I put off reading them for ages, only to be sucked in for the last 1/3 of the book. I think they’re also books you have to be in the mood for. Hopefully you enjoy Blue Lily, Lily Blue more.

    Also, The Death Cure trailer shocked me!! I haven’t even read the last book yet and I read the first book before the movies were even announced. I’m not ready???


    1. IM SORRY I HAVE SO MANY FOLLOWERS but I have no idea what I’m doing?? I just?? doo?? stuff? wow, great tips. I LOVE blue lilly lily blue in the end (replying to this so late ahha)

    Life is like a series of ups and downs. There are good times & bad times, happy times & sad times, energetic tmes & tired times andddd……you get the picture. What I want to say is…it’s ok if life in September (school or blogging wise) wasn’t that awesome. It happens! BUT, I hope October is a much more stress-free, work-free, or just much more relaxed & exciting! Happy Autmn! 🙂

  22. Ugh, I feel like school’s been taking up all my time as well. Like, I DID NOT ASK FOR THIS. It’s just stressing me out at this point. I’ve actually added both of Moira’s books on my TBR lately, so hopefully I enjoy them (both of them sound so interesting). AND I HOPE YOU LOVE VICIOUS (it’s my favorite of hers). And, NOOOO to not liking The Dream Thieves! That’s easily my favorite book in the entire series, because RONAN and PYNCH WHISPERINGS, but I also enjoyed Blue Lily, Lily Blue and The Raven King, so I hope you at least enjoy those! Thanks so much for linking back to my post! ❤

    My hiatus is officially over today so I’m taking some time to check out everyone’s wrapups and posts 🙂

    It seems like you had a decent month even if your blogging wasn’t on par…. the tweet thing is SUPER COOL I’m insanely jealous that you can even think of such funny/relatable tweets, never mind actually get attention for them. 10 books is SUPER AWESOME I’m insanely jealous, I read nothing and I wasn’t even blogging *sob*

    but I did meet Amanda Foody and now I’M SO OBSESSED and so I need to read her books, especially since I now know that you like them too.

    I hope you feel better about blogging in October!!

    1. Hi Joce! I MISSED YOU SO MUCH!! I am SOOO GLAD YOUR BACK! I hope you had a great hiatus!

      HAHA I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT MY TWEETS ARE. I just come up with some random stuff and hope for the best. I am lucky, I guess? It’s okay! We all read at our own pace. 10 books is quite a big deal for me too!

      1. Haha going Twitter Viral is hard! Yas Cait and I are kind of friends?!?!?! I HAVE A FAMOUS FRIEND Y’ALL. I don’t know how it happened. Also we are always arguing over who will be Queen of the Universe and I threaten to set her dragon secretaries on her.

        I HOPE YOU ARE DESTROYED BY ODD. I mean this in the kindest way possible obviously. I guess, if you love ODD I can forgive you about Illuminae hahaha
