Happy 1st of October (a.k.a. Halloween Month) everyone! I hope that you all had a wonderful September (even though I know a lot of you returned to school this past month, haha). I feel your pain, I do. I’m done with school…but I will always remember that mix of stress, excitement, and anxiety. Anyway, below I have listed all of the things that have happened on my blog this past September, as well as a crazy, insane, mega book haul! I didn’t even realize how many books I’d acquired this past month until I made this post! I might have to make a blog post about it, because I feel bad just showing you guys pictures about the insanity. Or maybe I’ll spare you the details, haha. Maybe let me know what you’d prefer? Happy reading!
I’m sorry guys, but Jin was too busy to send out kisses this time around. Also, I really wanted to use an autumn-themed GIF! And what can be more autumn-themed for me, than a pumpkin and a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte?! Well, maybe a few things. Or many things. But, these are two out of the many things that I love about autumn. I also love Fall fashion, bundling up with a cup of hot tea and a good book. Alright. On to the re-cap!
Title: The Sworn Virgin
Author: Kristopher Dukes
Genre: Adult, Historical, Romance
Imprint: William Morrow
Date published: August 8, 2017
Page Count: 352
A physical copy of this book was kindly provided by the blog tour host, in exchange for an honest review.
Summary: Dukes’s gripping historical novel tells the tale of a desperate Albanian woman who will do whatever it takes to keep her independence and seize control of her future…even if it means swearing to remain a virgin for her entire life.
When eighteen-year-old Eleanora’s father is shot dead on the cobblestone streets of 1910 Albania, Eleanora must abandon her dream of studying art in Italy as she struggles to survive in a remote mountain village with her stepmother Meria.
Jin and his kisses were such a hit last month that I decided to let him send you more kisses with this July wrap-up! Wow, it’s August already! I don’t know if I feel as if July went by quickly or slowly…it seems to change for me depending on the day. But I feel like it’s the former more than the latter. Summers usually fly by for me because I’m a lot more busy with friends and family while we’re enjoying the (usually) nicer weather here in Canada. Winter has all of us feeling a lot more lethargic, which is fine since that means more reading and blogging time for me. But anyways, here is what’s been going on on Flavia the Bibliophile in the past month!
