Monthly Wrap-up: September 2018

September 2018 wrapup

Hey Book Lovers! I hope you all had very exciting month.

I don’t know why but I felt this month was longer. I have been busy with Baby shower and scans and check ups and other random life things that slowed reading. Moreover, amniotic fluid is on borderline and blood flow to baby is little less. Condition is not improving and so was advised to take all precautionary measure  and rest to not make it worse. Thankfully baby is growing well but I’m little worried.

Books I read in September-

Total Books read: 9
Total Pages read: 2386
