***I swear I scheduled this for the 30th! I don’t know what happened!***
I was not mentally prepared for September. I’ve averaged three hours of sleep a night, and as such, whenever I attempted to sit down and read I would end up lying down and sleeping for the next two hours.
The Fairy Tale Read-a-Thon was announced, and signs ups were opened to the general public. Looks like it’s going to be tons of fun—it isn’t too late to join!
I interviewed Pica @ Pica Reads, one of my favorite bloggers!
I sorta disappeared for a week and took a much needed break while my laptop was having minor surgery performed.
I also helped to reveal the cover of Abandon by Elana Johnson (which is really pretty!)
Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce
The Amaranth Enchantment by Julie Berry
Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys
The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland… by Catherynne M. Valente
Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
This actually wasn’t as bad a reading month as it looks. I averaged about four days per book. Well, except for Fairyland which took almost two weeks. I’m also almost finished with eGalley’s of Eve & Adam, and The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland…
Received This Month
How to Save a Life by Sara Zarr
Supernaturally by Kiersten White

Across the Universe Swag from Jen Bigheart @ I Read Banned Books
Origin Swag from Jessica Khoury
I didn’t get everything shown in each of the pictures. The AtU swag was divided among 5 winners. And due to the number of Origin Olympics participants, I only got a bookmark, a signed bookplate, and a sticker instead of all the awesomeness in the picture.

I’m not going to make a fancy list this month because that obviously didn’t work well last month. I’ll avoid the library and finally start to tackle my enormous TBR shelf which is starting to flow onto a second shelf.
Coming This Month
This month is going to be crazy! There’s the Fairy Tale Read-a-Thon starting on the 17th and a couple other reading events, I have a ton of reviews to catch up on, and three blog tours (though I still haven’t gotten the egalleys for two of those tours, so we’ll see if I end up dropping out or not…) Be prepared for craziness!
How was your week?
