Happy September! Last month was exciting for me. I’m excited to share it with you! As you can see, I read only a few books last month. It was because I reinstated my Netflix subscription so that I can watch the new season of The 100! I must say, I loved it. I loved the beautiful sky and I’m so glad it’s not as gory as some seasons before. I also enjoyed Next in Fashion. They were so creative in designing clothes! I’m currently watching The Legend of the White Snake. The audio is in Chinese so I have to read English caption. I love the music from the movie. It has love triangle and forbidden love all in one. I’m on episode 26 and I have 10 more to go. I also watched The Magician. It’s very similar to The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe so I stopped after a few episodes in. I’m ready to cancel my subscription to focus on reading again haha..
So last month I started reading The Chronicle of Narnia in the order of the publication date with my son. I really like the story and the siblings. I have read The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and Prince Caspian. I will continue with book 3 in September. I also enjoyed Ever Cursed. It has a unique idea. Unfortunately, I had a DNF and I felt so bad about it. For some reason I couldn’t read The Good for Nothings further.
In August, I hosted a 6 winners Instagram giveaway focusing on books gifted to me by the publishers. Below are the books and winners have been chosen. I need to package them and mail them out!
I’m saving the best for last! I received the best bookmail ever last month! Drum rolls please!
I recorded my first Instagram Reels to unbox this amazing bookmail so if you want to check it out, my Instagram handle is @howusefulitis 💝 I loved the details put into this bookmail. One little cute envelope I wasn’t sure I should open but finally after some hesitation I opened it to find Forget-Me-Not flower seeds!! Even the box was personalize. Another envelope has that flower as sticker to seal it. I feel so special to receive such a special box especially on an author I love. I hope you all will get to read Schwab’s new book, The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue soon 💝 My favorite series from Schwab that I have read is A Darker Shade of Magic, A Gathering of Shadows, and A Conjuring of Light. I hope you are as excited as me to read her new book!
Happy Reading Everyone!
