I think I did a pretty good job this month and read a decent amount of books. My biggest achievement is, of course, that I FINALLY FINISHED Night Circus! Woohoo! I swear, that bad boy has been staring at me since June and I just couldn’t get enough motivation to want to finish it. But, I knew I had to, so I did. Thank goodness! I wish it was better, not that the story wasn’t good, it was just SO long and barely anything happened. Such a disappointment.

Another plus?! I FINALLY read The Vampire Academy series. I feel like the only one who hasn’t read it and now I can say that I have. My thoughts? I was underwhelmed with the series as a whole. It was good, but the romance didn’t spark any emotions in me and there were a lot of dull moments that dragged on through each of the books. Also, Rose annoyed me a lot through a few books. Regardless, I liked it overall and am happy I read it. I am looking forward to reading the Bloodlines series, though, since it focuses on my favorite character from VA, Adrian. Swoon! Adrian!

Anyways, up above is the screenshot of all the books I’ve read for this month’s challenge. Have you read any of them? Any of them intrigue you? Check out the links below!
