What did I even do in September? Honestly, the month has rolled by and I can’t remember if I did anything exciting the entire month!
September has been the start of the football season, and fantasy football has become a big part of my life again, but mostly my husband’s. :D I’m in two leagues and every Sunday we are dedicated to watching games all day via NFL Redzone. I have been getting a lot of reading and blogging done on Sundays now because we are always home.
I also received my first Owl Crate this month and it was FANTASTIC! Ashley said she’ll be doing a review of the crate since it was her first too, and she queried all of you not long ago with her Readerly Advice post. However, if you are curious now, take a look at my post on tumblr. I also took my first selfie in forever to show one of my favorite pieces of the box — an arrow necklace. :D Also, the next picture isn’t from my Owl Crate, BUT, I did get some of the Fifth Element Funkos in the mail. RUUU-BEE-RHOD!
I feel like my blogging focus has increased ten-fold in the last few months. Also, Ashley and I made some leeway on two features! The first, Beer & Book Exchange, was published yesterday, and it is a really large post about the books and beers we’ve been sending each other in the mail for the last several months. After this mega-post it will be a regular monthly feature. The second is called Literary Cage Match, and it is just as it sounds. We will get that up in October. We WILL!

Anne’s favorite book
I waited too long to read Dreamer’s Pool! But, at least I am just in time for Tower of Thorns to come out!
Also, I lent this to my father-in-law and he liked it so much he started reading Daughter of the Forest next to get more Marillier. :D
How did your month go? What books did you read?
