September Wrap-Up (Sunday Post)

Hosted by Kimberley @ The Caffeinated Book Reviewer
It's the end of September, which is tragic because it means we're entering the tenth month of the year and I am yet to achieve any of my goals. It also means that uni's just started up again. Right now, everything's calm, but there's a storm on the horizon. 

Oh, and did I mention that I'm a third year now?

News from the Reading Front

This was actually a really good month for reading. I read nine books: four novels, three manga books, a comic, and a play.

Cinder by Marissa Meyer - 5 stars - Review

A Study in Scarlet by Arthur Conan Doyle

Charlotte Says by Alex Bell - 4 stars - Review

Bleak House by Charles Dickens - 1 star 

A Winter's Tale by William Shakespeare

I've read 68 of the 100 books I pledged for the reading challenge so far, which means that I'm six books behind.

News from the Writing Front

Now that term's started, I have writing to do for my course, so I'm only aiming to add a certain number of chapters to my personal project per week. This week, it's just the one and a half. 

Today marks one month until the start of NaNoWriMo. Who's game?

(You shouldn't be.)

*Waves hand* I can manage. Maybe. What's the worst case scenario? I won't win? I can handle that. I mean, I lose loads when I do Camp NaNo. It's not like there's much of a difference.

(Is that why you're shaking?)

I'm not shaking. I'm shivering. It's really cold in here.

News from the Blogging Front

Earlier this month I made the colossal mistake of deleting the picasa web album which contained every single picture on the blog. Have I reuploaded them all? Ha. Ha. Not even close. In fact, some posts may need to be taken down completely as I no longer have the images and they just won't work without them. Please bear with me as I fix my blog half as fast as a snail crawling across my keyboard could.

With the exception of the above, this has been a pretty good blogging month. I didn't have internet at home for a week and I still managed to post seven times. That's twice more than last month!
