Monthly Wrap Up: September 2022

Hey, hi, hello! Where did September go? Does anyone have a clue because I literally blinked and the month was somehow over. πŸ‘€ I don’t even know where to begin with the happenings this month (mostly because I can’t recall all of it for some reason?) so I’m going to stick to the highlights and keep this life update short and sweet:

  • My 3-months in India came to an end and I flew back to Jakarta at the start of the month.
  • I got to unbox some great book mail from the months I was gone!
  • My cousin got married at the end of the month and it was hella tiring but also wicked fun.
  • Lots of family reunion stuffβ€”it’s been a lot but oh so good to see my aunts, uncles and cousins from the US, Canada and Australia again after years of separation.
  • I got a job as a consultant at the UNβ€”woo for employment! πŸ₯³

I thought I would have more time to read in September but I very much underestimated how busy life would be and I highly overestimated how much I’d be able to read this month. Oops. I ended up reading 10 BOOKS this month, which is probably the least I’ve read in years or at least since I started blogging! πŸ™ˆ I had no reads below 3-stars this month and although my two 5-star reads are on opposite spectrums from each other, what with one being MG fantasy and the other YA literary fiction, I would highly recommend both. You can check out my reviews for both of them linked below! 😊
