Dancing out of September 2021

Ack. I don’t even know where to start. This was yet again such a busy and weird month. I really hope October slows down. Says she who had a market on October 2nd.

The Numbers

In September I read a total of 5 books which makes the total of 2021 75 books read.
Of the 5 books all books were fantasy .
Out of the 30 days of September I read 11 days which amounted to a total of 2078 pages.
The rating average of this month was 3,9

  1. Once Ghosted Twice Shy ( Ghosted Cozy Mystery 1) by Jessica Arden | 4 stars | ARC
  2. Ninth House (Alex Stern 1) by Leigh Bardugo | 4 stars
  3. The Last Graduate ( Scholomance 2) by Naomi Novik | 4 stars
  4. Dark and Shallow Lies by Ginny Myers Sain | 3,5 stars | ARC
  5. The Book of Dragons. Edited by Jonathan Strahan. | 4 stars

All the above books fitted for the magical readathon. I read 5 out of 7 prompts so that was good since I only needed two to complete the novice path. But I still would have preferred all 7. Ah well.

⌘ September started off pretty decently. Merijn was rather relaxed for the start of the school year and the weather was still nice which always helps him greatly.

⌘ I was busy with a lot of volunteering things. I do the school library at Merijn’s school with a few other moms and all of a sudden we had a course and then later an appt with the library person assigned to our school.

⌘ I also organised the green community day for our playground where I got rid of stingy bushes and remade it to an insect hotel and growing some fruits and veggies. You can see a few photos at the tweet down below

⌘ Then I had a stand at Yalfu a dutch young adult festival. It was fun to see but I also had some things I’d like to give as feedback. Like the last 90 minutes nobody came upstairs which really hits your sales. Regardless I got to see an interview of Taran Matharu and some dutch authors and I heard Angie Thomas (livestream) over the radio when I was at my stand. We also got a goodie bag so that was fun.

⌘ In between those things I also had a small concussion. Merijn almost fell out of the big playground thing because he was carying too many things and as I caught him he dropped his big paw patrol car on my head. That was not cool. And gave me a small concussion. So that was a full week I could do nothing. Reading was really hard too.

⌘ The week after that Merijn was sick and again I had a few days where I could do nothing because he was puking and (obviously) asking for a lot of attention.

⌘ These last few days of September I tried to relax and get ready for a market on October 2nd. Luckily a lot is still packed up from Yalfu so that helped.

⌘ I also put up a lot of new items on my etsy! Bookish goodies!

  1. The Dutch YA festival looks so cute – love those little stickers. πŸ™‚ What did you think of Ninth House? I know it’s such a hit or miss for people, but I quite enjoyed it despite the very slow start.

    Hope you have a great October, Annemieke!

  2. Glad you’re feeling better and that school is going well for your guy. My daughter has really changed since school started back this September, and I mean that in a good way.

  3. Ouch! Sorry to hear about the concussion. The garden project is lovely. Ninth House is on my tbr so I’m happy to see you enjoyed it. I’m hoping October doesn’t fly by, as well. πŸ™‚

  4. Oh en ondertussen nog een valpartij. Hopelijk voel je je ondertussen al wat beter en is november wel wat liever. Hoeveel maanden/jaren zouden we elkaar ondertussen al een betere maand toewensen?
