September Wrap-Up & October Most Anticipated Releases


Hey Guys!

Wrap-up time is HERE!

October is here! October is one of my favorite months because of all the scary movies and shows on TV. I usually don’t watch TV, but I love shows and movies that give me a good scare. Also, the holiday season is almost upon us! 

Let’s get started!


I read a total of 10 books this month and I enjoyed pretty much all of them. I ended up lowering my Goodreads Challenge from 150 to 125 books because I want to slow down my reading pace and 125 seems reasonable.


Second Chances by Mónica B. Wagner | ★★★ | A sequel that fell short and I’m currently contemplating whether or not I want to read the final installment in the series.
Rookie Move by Sarina Bowen | ★★★★½ | An excellent start to a new series and I’m excited for the sequel. 
Fuel the Fire by Krista & Becca Ritchie | ★★★★★ | A book that went above and beyond and I couldn’t ask for a more perfect ending for Coballoway
Long Way Down by Krista & Becca Ritchie | ★★★★★ | A book that was absolute perfection and the perfect ending to Daisy and Ryke’s story
Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas | ★★★★½ |  Another great installment in the Throne of Glass series and I can’t wait to see how this series will end.
Trust the Focus by Megan Erickson | ★★★½ | A great start to a M/M romance series that could quite possibly become one of my faves.
 Focus on Me by Megan Erickson| ★★★★½ | A beautiful and heartfelt M/M romance that had me in tears by the end.
 Out of Frame by Megan Erickson | ★★★★ | A fun and entertaining M/M romance that left me wanting more.
 Overexposed by Megan Erickson | ★★★★ | A beautiful ending to an already amazing M/M romance series.
 Unicorn Tracks by Julia Ember | ★★★★ | A unique and fascinating YA fantasy with amazing world building and engaging plot will suck you in.
 Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo | ★★★★★ | Everything I wanted and more in a YA Fantasy novel.

 The Goal by Elle Kennedy| ★★★★ | A bittersweet ending to one of my favorite series.

 Why Spoilers Are Never A Good Thing


A Love Letter to Whiskey by Kandi Steiner | Hear Me Now by Lisa De Jong | Tonic by Staci Hart | Touching Down by Nicole Williams | Twisted Palace by Erin Watt | Keepsake by Sarina Bowen

Surprise, surprise, of course all my anticipated releases are romance novels. I’m most excited for Twisted Palace, which is the final book in The Royals series. Crazy shit is about to go down in this book and I can’t wait to see how all these twists from the previous book plays out.

That is all for the month of September Feel free to check out any of the above posts mentioned if you haven’t done so already.

I'm Ari, a local NYC bibliophile and a forever daydreamer. You can usually find me with my nose buried in a book and my head up in the clouds. I am also a coffee addict and a chocolate connoisseur. I fell in love with the romance genre about three years ago and I haven't been able to stop reading about happily-ever-afters, which is ironic because I'm a bit of a cynical romantic in real life, haha. I hope you all enjoy my blog and fangirling with me about all the smutty reads!

    1. I know! I was looking at some of the upcoming releases and there are so many good books coming out, I can’t keep up. I’ve prioritized them so I can read my most anticipated releases first, but I’m hoping to get to most of them before the end of the year.

    1. I felt the same about The Goal. The Score is still my favorite, but Tucker is seriously hubby goals! I think we’ll have to wait a while for the spin-off series because there are like two other series she’s currently working on :(. Hopefully we don’t have to wait TOO long.
