Hello guys !
This month was such a slow/hectic/messy/I-don’t-know-what-I’m-doing-anymore month for me. School started which meant the internship, which meant crazy schedule which meant I have barely been around the community for the last couple of weeks.But I’m tryinh guys! I really am. You know how it is widely known that medstudents are prone to depression? Funny story is that the head of Emergency general surgery (the departement I’m currently working in) said that we’re all bound to break down at some point or another and if we don’t it means we do not care enough. When I say funny, I mean it wasn’t funny at all and that it’s scary. Well, now that that’s out of the way I want to say that I’m fine -for now- but very exhausted and at the time this post goes up I am at the hospital for a 12 hours shift.
This month was a good reading month considering everything. I managed to read 6 books out of the 7 that were on my TBR. The only one I didn’t get to is Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows and I’m actually glad because I’m not ready for it to end. I’m leaving that one until November hehe. The review copies I received this month were all really good books which really surprised me because until this month none of the ones I received impressed me.

All the Harry Potter books
It is Harry Potter, so it deserves all the stars in the galaxy and beyond. HP is love. HP is life.
This book deals with body image issues in such a unique and creative way that I think more people should read it. It also comes out with a positive message about body-positivity and confidence that a lot of youth would do with hearing/reading.
Looking for diversity? Read this book. Looking for kick-ass pirates and treasure hunts? Read this book. Looking for cool magic. Read it. Read it. Read it. I really enjoyed the story as well as the writing and I want you to get this book as soon as it is out. DO IT.
Holy Mother of Magical Realism !!! I am so in love with this book. The story is heartbreaking and beautiful. The characters are all very real and loveable and I just can’t rave enough about it. You should read it for yourself to understand what I am rambling about.
Oh my poor little heart !! This book played with my head so much that I didn’t know who trust anymore. SO MUCH BETRAYAL!! One thing that I really loved though is how it is centered around best friends! But I had some issues with it thay I’ll explain in next week’s review.

Oh! Before you leave I want to talk to you guys about a program I registered for in September. It is the Book Review Program that was launched recently by Socialbookco.com which is a site where you can compare book prices from different retailers, and it can come very handy if you ask me when you’re trying to save up as much money as you can to buy even MORE books (duuh!!). Anyway. When you register and get approved you can either request books that are already available or you have a wish list of 5 books from which they can send you in exchange of an honest review. I REALLY suck at explaining things but you can check out the website and get more information/register if you’re interested. I really loved the idea and thought why not share it so more people can benefit from it.
That’s it until next time.
What books did you read in September ? And what have been the Highlights of your month ?
Hope you enjoyed, write to you soon.
