Paper Bindings - All Things Life, Books, and Blog Monthly Recap -
Your guide to what's happening at Paper Bindings.

September was a mess.


Because some very stressful things occurred during this month that I'd wish never happened. My hip has been bothering me, making it highly difficult to stand for 18 hours a day for my two jobs. I had a family scare that I don't wish to speak of. 

Overall, this month has kind of sucked.

But on a more fun note, I started watching Once Upon A Time
I'm only in the first season still, but I'm really loving this show. I always knew I would, it was just a matter of finding time to sit down and start watching it. My sister and I have been debating who was hotter, Hook or Prince Phillip. (If only I could watch this series faster. HOOK, I AM COMING FOR YOU!)

Of course now I'm in the mood to read some fairy tale retellings. Any recommendations for me?


I read 19 books this month.

Break It Down

Paper Bindings - September 2015 recap

This ratio is not unexpected.

Paper Bindings -  September 2015 recap

Quite a wide range of genres this past month. Surprisingly, paranormal only has a slight lead over the others. 

Paper Bindings - September 2015 recap

What an average month. Maybe it was my mood affecting my reading or it was the books, but I wasn't greatly impressed with that many books it seems. 

Up On The Blog


I'm going to continue my goal of getting caught up on all my current series and shrinking down my owned book pile in October.


  1. I love how you set this up! This is such a neat idea, to keep a monthly catalog of everything you read :)

    1. Thank you. Some people think recap posts are a waste, but I love them. It helps keep me accountable for my reading habits. Plus it's always nice to actually see how much I've read. Sometimes it feels like I've read nothing and then I look at this and am pleasantly surprised.

      Thank you for stopping by.
