Happy October! September saw me returning to blogging after a long break and I forgot what it’s like to actually enjoy blogging. That sounds terrible, but I have been struggling all year trying to find the motivation to keep going. This break was a godsend. I’m blogging more, I’m reading more, and more importantly, I’m not feeling overly stressed doing so. So if you are looking for someone to tell you taking that break from blogging you’ve been putting off is the right thing to do, consider this your final nudge. I read ten books this month which is about double my average. Yay me! Mid-September marked the beginning of Latinx Heritage Month and I’ve been sharing Talk Chisme to Me posts highlighting Latinx authors. Be sure to check them out below. Also, if you haven’t entered my Twitter giveaway, click here for all the info. It’s also finally October and I have a few Halloween-themed posts for you this month. I am going to wait about a week to start posting those because I don’t want to distract too much from my Latinx Heritage Month posts.

Favorite Book This Month:
My favorite read in September was Crystal Vega’s Fat Chance, Charlie Vega. Charlie is one of those characters that you cannot help but love. This one was truly one of the most delightful reads for me this year. Review coming soon.
Least Favorite Book This Month:
No book received lower than three stars from me.

What I Watched/Am Watching:
Hotel Del Luna – I have been wanting to watch this K-Drama for a while and then it dropped on Netflix like a gift. I am only a few episodes in, but am loving it in all its paranormal charm.
Hometown Cha Cha Cha – I also just started this cute K-Drama. I am only two episodes in, but no one does sweet, wholesome romance like K-Dramas and so I am really looking forward to where this one goes.
