I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers!

Copy of why hello there!

Welcome to my itsy-bitsy corner of the web! Today’s post is all about what I did in September and my goals for October! Let’s get started!!

✰recent reads!!

I was able to read quite a few books last month that I had wanted to read for a while!! Here are some of my favorites!!

Caraval by Stephanie Garber Caraval: this book is so STUNNING!! I had it on my TBR list for a long time and once I got it I kind of procrastinated reading it, but then I opened it and just read it. I fell in love with the characters and the world-building and I couldn’t put the book down! I really recommend this for anyone looking for a fresh and exciting read!

Pumpkinheads Pumpkin Heads: This book is so so adorable!! the art is so gorgeous and the plot is ridiculously cute!! It really got me into the fall mood. I love the POC rec and the cute characters and everything! I really recommend this! like just read it while sipping apple cider!

#famous #Famous: I loved this book! The plot was cutely unique and the characters were really funny! I recommend this for anyone whos looking for a sweet romance!!

How We Roll How We Roll: This book was really cute and tackled a lesser-known illness in an amazing way! I really enjoyed this book.

Verify by Joelle CharbonneauVerify: This book was an awesome retelling of 1984 and Fahrenheit 451! It was page-turning and hard to put down and I really enjoyed it!!

some other books I read that I enjoyed were: Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the universe, Vow of Thieves and The tea dragon festival!!

✰latest obsessions!!

warning: these are mostly going to be musicals because im obsessed with them.

Hadestown is an amazing retelling of the Greek Myths of Persephone and Hades and the Myth of Orpheus and Euridice. Its set in Americas 1920s/30s and has great songs and awesome costumes! I love it so much!!

Six is a fun and unique musical about Henry the 8ths wives! The songs are catchy and the whole musical is really cute and screams girl power! I love it so much!!

Anastasia is based on an animated movie about a historical Russian princess. Anastasia has always been one of my favorite movies, so I adore the musical version of it, the songs bring back so much nostalgia and its playing at my local theatre and I really hope I can see it!!

I recently have gotten a little obsessed with marvel (thanks to tom holland) There movies are pretty cool and their characters have complex personalities and cool powers.

playing the ukelele:

I’ve had a ukelele for a while but a few months ago I finally learned how to actually play it. Now I have been writing my own songs and using it to do worship with my Youth Group. After I fully master it, I hope to learn how to play guitar!

  1. I LOVE musicals. Especially Anastasia. I haven’t listened to the other two you mentioned but I’ve heard that Hadestown is really good 🙂
    Verify sounds awesome. I’ll definitely have to look into it.

  2. thanks for all the musicals recommendations, ava! i’ve been in the mood for musicals recently, which is strange for me, since i had kinda gotten tired of them for a while there. hadestown and anastasia look amazing and i’ll definitely be checking them out.
    i also think is SO nice you learned how to play the ukulele! i don’t know how to play any instruments, but i think it’s lovely. i tell myself i should learn, but i don’t know even know where to start with! i think music is really complex and just one of those things i’ll probably admire from afar forever, hahah. but i’m wishing you luck too fully master it and on your nanowrimo prep as well.
    hope you have an amazing october! 😌

  3. thanks for commenting!
    hadestown and anastasia are really great! anastasia is actually coming to my theatre and I hope i can see it! thank you so much! the ukelele is really fun and easy to learn on your own, and most ukelele’s are pretty inexpensive but still have great quality! its a great instrument to start off with and is alot easier than learning the piano!
    thanks so much! i hope nanowrimo goes well, i am not the best at prepping/planning but i am going to try my best this year!
    i hope you also have an amazing october!! 🙂
