Wrap-up: September 2019

September was a great reading month for us, by which I mean I managed to read basically as many books as Charlotte! (So what if it was only because she was busy finishing her research project for uni…) But in any case, we both read some great books, so you should definitely pay attention to our lists!

You’ll also notice a fire emoji next to some titles. I figured it might be cool to mark the books we’ve reread.

(As ever, though, Anna beat me at watching things in September.)
