I read eleven ARCs this month which has left me with only one physical ARC on my TBR and a few on NetGalley. I just need to start writing my reviews for as many of these as possible before I forget everything.

As for my book buying, I bought five books and traded for one. Out of these, only two need to be added to my TBR pile. I’m really pleased with how restrained I was and hope I can continue the good behaviour throughout September.
