Monthly Wrap-up :September/October TBR

I read eighteen books in September. This is the highest number of books that I have ever read in a single month. I woke up one morning and found myself with over 10 books all expiring in a period of 2 weeks so I had to be deliberate with my reading and actually create time to get through the books before expiration especially since they were ARCs for review.

Anyway, here are the books.Click on the titles to read my reviews of each book.

Reading Challenge update: My 2016 reading challenge was basically to read 50 books by the end of the year. I have read 82 books so far. God willing, I hope to reach 100 books by December. I also hope to read more diverse books and definitely, more African literature books and classics.


I hope that you had a wonderful month. Happy October. Cheers!
