Monthly Recap! September 2017

Posted October 2, 2017 by Wendy in recap / 2 Comments

Someone tell me how September is OVER already?! What even! That month FLEW by. I felt like summer was barely over and now it’s October with Halloween around the corner and it’s just pretty crazy! How is everyone enjoying fall?

Favorite Things in September:

I went to a signing for Marie Lu‘s Warcross! I definitely meant to read her books before the event but just didn’t have time (story of my life). However, she was super nice and now I’ve started the Legend series and can’t wait to dive into Warcross!

I’m actually really sad because I totally forgot to get a picture WITH Marie!

I also got to do this truly amazing Harry Potter scavenger hunt hosted by Geek Girl and Reed Pop and it was so much fun! We got to be sorted into a house, all got amazing team shirts and raced around Seattle! I was on team Ravenclaw (of course) and we won!! I didn’t even know there would be a prize when I got a ticket (it’s a Harry Potter scavenger hunt, I am obviously THERE) but we won some cash and a one day ticket to Emerald City Comic Con! I’m super excited about that as I’ve never been to a comic con before! Anyway, it was just such a fun night!

Month in Review:

Books Read In September: 6

Audiobooks Listened to in September: 4

  1. The Harry Potter scavenger hunt sounds so cool, how did you hear about it? I never look for things like that to do in my city, but I LOVE scavenger hunts cause I’m so competitive :p I was in Seattle two weekends ago, and it was so nice there! I was only in the downtown Seattle area, but I already want to visit again! What a great city to live in 🙂

    • I’m so happy you loved your trip here to Seattle! I love living here! 🙂 One of my friends told me about the event which is how I knew! Super glad she did because it was so much fun! I’m also super competitive, haha!
