Posted October 1, 2015 by Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog in Features, Monthly Rewind / 39 Comments

Monthly Rewind is exactly what it sounds like. A post to summarize the past month: Books read, my quick takes on them, top posts of the month, what I have been watching and what’s coming up. I will be linking up to Feed Your Fiction Addiction’s Monthly Wrap Up Round Up.

Break from Books


  • School and dance classes started for my daughter. We have been busy with that and getting into our new routine.
  • YAY for fall!! Football, Sweatshirts and Pumpkin!!! This is my favorite time of the year (sorry summer!)
  • Lots of apples in out house after two rounds of apple picking. I have been Pinteresting recipes like mad!
  • Chicago is an amazing city and I loved that I finally got to go for a weekend with just my husband. Some time without the kids was so needed.
  • Fall TV started towards the end of this month and I am happy for my favorites to return and also to check out some new shows. Now to fit in all that and reading!

What’s Ahead

I will be taking a week break from the blog in October to go to Disney! I am excited but also dreading a flight with the kids. I am bad at traveling with them – such anxiety!! Also, I want to read more of a mix of review books and just books I want to read in October.

How was your September? What was your favorite book from the month?

  1. Looks like you had a great month! And gorgeous pictures, Grace. I think it’s super cute that your daughter started on school and dance lessons. I hope she does great in both 😀 And I can’t believe you read Juniors! I’ve always wanted to read that since forever! So happy to hear that it went well for you.

    Have fun this October, and so excited for what this month would bring 🙂

  2. I love apple picking! I have yet to go this year, though. I was at my mother’s house last night for supper and she made an apple crumble pie… it was amazing.

    Besides giving you the creeps, did you end up liking You by Caroline Kepnes? It really made me look at the internet differently. I wasn’t super impressed with the ending. I doubt I’ll read the second book.

    I hope you have a great October. Have fun in Disney ;).

  3. September was a good month. My favorite books were You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) and Ana of California. I also really enjoyed my re-reads: The Martian, Fangirl, and Scarlet.

    Enjoy Disney. You’re brave! I don’t want to take my son until he 8 at least. I love Disney too much to deal with whining, etc. while I’m there. And I want him to be tall enough to go on the good rides.

  4. Enjoyed your wrap-up! Love seeing the Fall pics. I’m so ready for it but Fall is rather subjective in Florida. It basically just means “a little less scorching than summer.” LOL I had some real issues with Has To Be Love which disappointed me because I loved Perry’s The Summer I Found You so much. How the travel to Disney goes without a hitch and doesn’t cause too much stress!

  5. September was a slow reading month for me because I read Anna Karenina which took up a LOT of time. I loved it though. I read some other really interesting books too — Is That a Fish in Your Ear? was a fascinating book about translation, and Symphony for the City of the Dead was about the Siege of Leningrad during WWII and the creation of Shostakovich’s Seventh Symphony. For pure reading fun, Girl Waits with Gun was a super historical mystery. Hope you have a splendid October!

  6. Ooh that’s exciting about Disney, but I’d be a bit anxious to travel with kids too. I hope you all have a great time though! Looks like you read some awesome titles in September. I hope you get to read more of what you want this month. I’m trying to do a bit of a mix as well, mostly because I want to read more mysteries/thrillers than I have to review.

  7. What a great wrap up! I love all the pictures. I mean, apple picking sounds absolutely great, I don’t know why we don’t have it in Belgium. So jealous! And it seems like you read some great books as well. I’ve been really wanting to read You by Caroline Kepnes as I think it would give me the creeps. I hope you have an amazing October, and a great trip to Disney!
