Hello October!



I love October. Don’t you? It’s definitely one of my favourite months. It’s so Fall-y. And beautiful. And cozy.  Hot cocoa, tea, and hoodies – my favourites! And it’s also my birthday month, which is always a plus. ;)

September is a good month too, though busy in the beginning half because of harvest. But it starts the Autumn time and I love that. I hope you all had a good September. Ours was…busy. It went by really fast. Hoping October is a little slower. ;)

So, it’s about time for my September Book Recap.  This is what I got last month:


Angels Watching Over Me by Michael Phillips – Thrift store

Lady in Waiting – Thrift store

Monk: Mr. Monk Goes to Hawaii – Thrift Store

Monk: Mr. Monk Goes to the Firehouse – Thrift Store

Soul Surfer by Bethany Hamilton – Little Free Library

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society – Little Free Library

Dear America: Light in the Storm – Little Free Library

Dear America: When will this cruel war be over? – Little Free Library

Heart to Heart with Mallory – Garage sale

Before Midnight: a Cinderella Retelling – Little Free Library

The Inheritance of Loss by Kiran Desai – Library Book Sale

Walking from East to West by Ravi Zacharias – Amazon


And Sepetember was a pretty good reading month for me, so that was nice! I had several days of really bad back pain, which is a bummer but it resulted in lots of laying down so lots of reading! :) These are the books I read, 8 in total:

Call the Midwife by Jennifer Worth #1

Asking for Trouble, Through Thick and Thin, Don’t Kiss Him Goodbye, and Flirting with Disaster all by Sandra Byrd

Call the Midwife #2 and Call the Midwife #3

Dead Reckoning by Ronie Kendig


I’m currently reading “God’s Daughter” by Heather Day Gilbert in preparation for the release of its sequel,  “Forest Child”!

For October, I don’t think I really have any goals…just to enjoy it. And turn a year older, but that’s not really a goal – that happens naturally. ;)

We’re going to the zoo, which promises to be loads of fun!

What does October hold for you, friends?



I am a peculiar treasure who is passionately in love with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I love writing, reading, knife/tomahawk-throwing, and letter-writing, among other things. :)
