Hello, Birthday Month! September is my favorite month of the year, not just because it’s my birthday month but also because it’s when we start to get some relax from the heat. But mainly because it’s my birthday month. My husband, my dad, and two of my best friends also celebrate birthdays the same week as me, so it’s like a solid week of celebrations! Because of this September is generally a lower reading month for me. We’ll be spending a week at the lake this month, instead of doing birthday parties, so I should actually be able to keep up with my 11-13 books this month as well.
This month is going to consist of a ton of ARC reading. I’m also aiming to read few back lists books from Book of the Month, that I have not had a chance to get too. Basically it’s going to be the month of playing catch up. I only signed on for a single buddy read as well to help with this.
Going into September, I am at 86% of my 2020 reading goal completed. It’s not unreasonable to think that I might even reach my 2020 reading goal this month. A girl can dream!
Lets Read Rant Repeat Book Club Pick
Bookstagram is such a wonderful community and I have met quite a few folks that I now consider to be friends. One of these is Jordan from @readwithwine and together we host a Virtual Book Club @letsreadrantrepeat. Our aim is to read a variety of genres, constantly switching it up to ensure we are reading something everyone will enjoy. Each month we choose 1 book that can be practically any type of story. We host a group chat with fellow book lovers on Instagram, where we can talk about the book as we read. At the end of the month (a specified Sunday at 7pm CST) Jordan and I get together for wine & an Instagram Live discussion. We generally invite guests from our group chat to share their thoughts on the book as well!
Our June Book Club Discussion will be held on Sunday September 20th at 7pm CST. Head to our Instagram @letsreadrantrepeat to join in the discussion. This month we’ll be reading: Frying Plantain.
Click on the description to purchase the book and join in our discussion this month!

My September Book of the Month boxes are on their way to me. Head over to my full post on the September picks for a complete run down of what I picked and why. Full write up HERE! I always try to read my Book of the Month Picks the same month I receive them, so they’re always on my TMR.
Whew, that’s a lot of books. These are just some of the many books I’m planning to read this month. Make sure to check back weekly for my full reviews of these plus other books. If you would like to know more about any of these books or want to share with me what you’ll be reading in September comment below or by visiting my instagram @speakingof_books.
