September's Reading Goal Progress

September was not a good month in terms of reading goals as I managed to cross off a grand total of zero. I guess I've got some catching up to do next month!

September's Purchases

At this point I've completely given up on making it through a whole month without buying a book. Having said that, I have been using my bookish spreadsheet to track my purchases and at last check I have read almost 60% of the books I've bought this year so that makes me feel a little bit better about it! During September I added a couple more Kindle titles (I need to stop doing this...) and a secondhand copy of my favourite read of the month to my collection.

September's Book Of The Month

Whilst my one re-read of the month (Dangerous Girls) always gets a five star rating from me, there was also another book that I fell in love with this month. Girl In Translation (Jean Kwok) tells the story of Kimberley Chang who emigrates from Hong Kong to New York with her mother. The book follows Kimberley through her childhood and teenage years as she navigates life in a new country, balancing school during the day with shifts in a sweatshop every evening. To me both the characters and the story felt very authentic which is just one of the many reasons why it's made it's way straight into my favourites list.
