RAK: September Wrap-Up & October's Plans

It's the last day of September and it's time to go over my RAK's September Wrap-Up. The RAK is hosted every month by Book Soulmates. This is what I got for my birthday month:

Birthday card, two banned books week bookmarks, Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness, & Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor from Sarah at Sawcat's Book Blog. She's super awesome!

Yay! I got Unwind's sequel, Unwholly by Neal Shusterman. This was sent to me by my lovely friend, Ciska from I am Ciska.

These gorgeous earrings were made especially for me for my birthday by the very talented Miki from Lecture toute une Aventure. I get many compliments when I wear these. So pretty!!!

This is what I gave away:

I sent this to Michelle over at Beagle Book Space.


This was a very exciting month of gifts and I have to say that I am quite blessed to have such wonderful friends around the world. Got to love the book blogging community!

September was a very interesting reading month. I went back to work at my school, my tutoring started up again, and I went back into my belly dance. My reading time was cut short and my desire to read was not as great at the beginning of the month due to heartbreak. I did get to read my Harry Potter books and I got started on my H.P. Lovecraft.

October's Plans

  • Going to read the last two books in the Harry Potter series.
  • Going to read the next four stories out of the H.P. Lovecraft: The Complete Fiction: "A Reminiscence of Dr. Samuel Johnson," "Polaris," "Beyond the Wall of Sleep," and "Memory."
  • Start The Hobbit Read-a-Long hosted by Sawcat's Book Blog.
  • Finish reading Taken by Erin McCarthy and Battle Royale by Koushun Takami.
  • Read The Woman in Black by Susan Hill.
  • Co-host Valentina Goldman's Immaculate Confusion book blast on October 8th.
  • Participate in the Spooktacular Giveaway Hop hosted by I am a Reader, Not a Writer
I'm excited for October!!!!


  1. great plans! i wish you a lot of success ^^

  2. Yay! Discovery of Witches! The banned books bookmarks are cook, and the rose earrings are pretty. Are they shrinky-dinks???? I used to do those. It kinda looks like those are, but can't really tell.

    1. I'm not sure if they are shrinky-dinks, but I guess they are because two other people have asked me that already.

    2. Haha! I love doing shrinky dinks! Have you ever done them? So easy and fun, and they turn out so cool!

    3. Never tried them and never really heard about them until I got these earrings.

  3. You are most welcome. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
