Hello Bookworms! In the previous month, I’ve been setting myself reading goals and creating TBRs to great success. Creating monthly (but flexible) TBRs at the beginning of each month has really helped me in not only reading more books, but maintaining reading as a habit everyday. And so, I thought today I could share my September reading plans and maybe some of you will share yours too! Is anyone else a bit of a planning nerd like me?
