About me

Oh Hey! I'm Alice, I'm 22 and I'm from Belfast. Welcome to my corner of the internet!
It's September and as a recent graduate, it's the first time in my living memory that it wasn't back to school month! That being said I am working almost full time so my reading time has diminished a little since lockdown. So anyway what did I read this month? I feel like I've been stuck in a bit of a reading slump lately but I'm most definitely out of it now! I only managed to get through one book in the whole first two weeks of the month and then ended up finishing 5 in the space of a week which really spurred me on to get some more books read in the latter half of the month. In total, I ended up reading TEN books this month which I'm super happy with! In case you're new to my reading wrapups I just like to share a little bit about the books without giving you any spoilers and some thoughts on them from your truly. I hope you enjoy and are inspired to pick up some of these reads for yourself!
