It’s hard to believe we are in October and that Fraterfest begins this week! It’s not too late to sign up! For the month of September I read/listened to 26 books. (Don’t even ask me how!?!) I am currently at 210 of 250 for the year on Goodreads. I have started utilizing my library once again. They finally updated to the Libby App and I’ve discovered how to send books directly to my Oasis. Be sure to enter my birthday giveaway to win a copy of Kill the Queen. Stay Caffeinated!

I always ignore the Libby app option. How does it work?
I think its nicer and it sends ebooks right to my Kindle Oasis.
It has been hot here, but finally cooled off yesterday. I slept with windows opened last night and it was a little chilly getting up this morning. Finally. I’ve been so ready for Fall. I hope you’re having a great week.
We are chilly and dang it, I need a boat. It has been damp, overcast and rainy all week The sun came out the other afternoon and I felt like a vampire shrieking in shock!
You really made me laugh out loud with that vamp comment. 😀
Oh my goodness! Great minds think alike. I just talked about Libby on my blog post, an had no idea you used that cool app! I’d like to think that most of us have our black belt.(lol) Hugs…RO
Yeah! Great minds do think alike <3
I am really excited for Fraterfest (and for October in general because it’s such a fun month!). I heard about Changeling and I hope you enjoy it!
I devoured Changeling. It was a lot of fun!
Love your reviews but love your Sunday catch up more. Its a real insight into you.
Thank you Barbara.
Yayyyyy Fraterfest and 26 books! that’s very exciting Kim HA! Funny I was about to ask you how!!! :XD I heart libraries and I cannot lie 🙂 I have no doubt you’ll surpass your 250 GR goal!
I am glad to be using the library again. Are you joining in for Fraterfest? Fun times to be had! I am hoping I surpass my goal, but happy to be on track!

Dang, that’s awesome, you’re only 40 away. I can’t wait to see your total at the end of the year. Stay Warm!
We shall see. I would love to come in over.
Happy Sunday on Monday, Kim 😉 Wow, I’m so impressed with your reading speed! Prolific. I’m reading a mystery now so it’s perfect for fall weather. Will be checking out the books your reviewing this week.
Mysteries are great this time of year Lisa.
OMG! How did you manage 26 books!! I struggle ro read even 2 ?
And I am proud to excel in some sport, I am a black belt too ?
Namaste. Yeah, I played field hockey in high school, but this is my sport. ?
Wow! I thought I was doing well at 60+ books…thats amazing!
60 is amazing Ali!
Ha Ha – I’m a black belt too!
I hope you are feeling all better.
Happy Reading for the week… and happy spooky reading!
Thank you. We all have head colds but tis the season ?
Great audio month! That is almost a book a day.
It was a combo of books and audio. I think books won, but my audios were over 17 hours in length.
Stephanie @ Once Upon a Chapter
I’m not even sure where 2018 went! It feels like just a month ago I was hosting a Tupperware party and getting ready for a cruise. That was in February/March! Lol!
Congrats on those 26 books lady! You must have been a reading machine!!! Now that life is settling down a bit, I’m really looking forward to getting back into the blogging community. So very happy to be able to stop by today! 🙂
Isn’t that the truth and sadly the older you get the quicker the years fly. Glad you are getting back into the swing of things.
wow 26 books 😀 thats awesome. I think I need to read that much in a month at this point to catch up, the last few months have been blah here 🙁
Ugh, I hate when the blahs take over. If you makes you feel better, I am ahead only because i spend a lot of time too ill to get out of bed.
26 books in a month is amazing, well done! That definitely is extreme reading.
Typically I am more between 15 and 20, so yes this was a good month
I wish I had stumbled across Fraterfest a little sooner! Hopefully you’ll do it again next year, but I’m definitely participating in the HoHoHo Readathon! I’ve set about 20 books aside for the event (not that I’ll get to them all), so I’ll have options.
Thank you for all of the fun you contribute to the blogging community! Your events bring people together, and they’re so easy to participate in. You’re a beautiful person!
Lindsi @ Do You Dog-ear?
Yes, the Fraterfest is back. I have such fun hosting these thons and hope to do 2 more in Winter and Spring.
Hi! I just found the Sunday Post meme today. It was really fun to do! Thanks for hosting
That is awesome Casey. I cannot wait to get to know you better 🙂
I can’t believe FraterFest starts this Thursday, but I’m ready for more spooky reads!
I know right. I am excited!
S. J. Pajonas
Wow! Great job on all those listens for the months. I’ve been stuck on one audiobook for weeks. I need to ignore my podcasts and just get back to listening to it!
LOL, mine were mostly books, but I did listen to quite a few. One was over 16 hours though.
Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction
Hope you had a fantastic birthday!!
I still only see the option for one credit per month gift subscriptions at the link you gave us, Am I missing something?
You used to be able to buy a single title to gift. The they took that away and only offered 3, 6 and 12 month membership gift giving. So it may it very hard to give an audiobook as a gift or prize. So now I can at least say here is one credit good for 2 free Audible originals and one title of your choice.
I’m only at 66 books read this year so far but I am keeping track to post it at the end of the year.
That is quite fair amount of reads Mary. Yes, I like to keep track.
Jan @ Notes from a Readerholic
I’m always in awe of your reading prowess, Kimberly! Good for you! Your new books look good. I want to find out more about them!
I hope you have a wonderful week!
Ha, I am a simple book addict.
This year seems to be flying by. Going to sign up for Fraterfest now.
Sweet! Excited to see that you are joining!
Definitely a good reading total and well on track for your GoodReads goal. Looking forward to Fraterfest this week. You’ve got a few I’m curious about in your haul- Changeling and Best of Us.
Good luck on the RAT! 🙂
I am hoping both rock!
Changeling is looking good. Have fun with Fraterfest 🙂
It does look good.
Lark @ The Bookwyrm's Hoard
26 books in a month! Wow! I haven’t been reading nearly enough in the last few weeks. Well, September was a pretty busy month with a lot of family visiting, so less reading time, I guess.
I’m looking forward to HoHoHo RAT. And I, too, have a black belt in Extreme Reading LOL!
You’ve had a crazy busy year Lark.
Erin @ Cracker Crumb Life
Kill the Queen!!! I forgot to write that title down and yesterday I was trying to think of it and just couldn’t! Lol. Popping over to that post now! 🙂
It was so good!
Haha that meme is so true!
It made me giggle.
Wow! 26 books in a month! Thats awesome. And yay for the library! Its the best!
I used to live there and then when I got really sick my husband would go for me.. So I am glad to be utilizing them again.
Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer
That’s a lot reading for one week.
26 was for the month Billy. But yeah I read 2-4 books a week on average. You might say I am a bit of an addict..
Hmm my libraries have Libby but I love Overdrive. so I don’t use it. 26 books!! That’s phenomenal. Have more good reading this week! Anne – Books of My Heart
Isn’t that funny. I hate OverDrive and stopped because of it. LOL
I love the meme. I am a white belt still. Unless I don’t have school then maybe I am a brown belt. I haven’t reached black belt in the least. Have a wonderful week. I am going to try to get to some more posts this week. I know I am missing so many!
Oh sweetie,just stopping in when you can is enough. I know how crazy life can get.
A Voracious Reader
I keep forgetting it’s October because it’s STILL in the upper 80s here. I’m so sick of the hot weather. I just want some mild temps. Is it too much to ask? *faints dramatically*
I hope you have a fantastic week, Kim!
We had one day of 95 and then cold and rainy the rest. We all have head colds.
ahhh omg thanks so much for linking up my post! and ooh, Fraterfest sounds really spooky and interesting–i’ll have to check it out!!
Happy to share Vicky!
You had a great reading month. You’re also doing great with your Goodreads challenge. Hope you have a great week!
Thanks Yvonne. I hope yours is wonderful too!
Lillian @ Mom with a Reading Problem
That is awesome that you read so many books in September! I managed 4 *facepalm* It was a busy month. I’m hoping to read more this month. But it isn’t looking good….. Hope you have a great week!
4 is good. When I was younger it was harder.
You are slaying your reading goals, Kim! That’s awesome that you’re back to using your library. I love all the new facilities with apps such as Overdrive and Hoopla.
I hated OverDrive, so Libby got me using them again. I need to see if they have Hoopla.
Woo hoo, that’s awesome Kimberly! You are totally crushing it 🙂 My reading goal for 2018 was to break 100, and I reached that in September so I”m super stoked about that!
That cover for Deadmarsh Fey looks super creepy!
Go you! That is awesome Darlene. I usually hit it and go over. It isn’t really a challenge more a way to keep me on track.
Suzanne @ The Bookish Libra
Wow, 26 books in a month is so impressive! At that pace, you’ll easily crush your Goodreads goal. 🙂
Let’s hope so Suzanne!
Wow that’s an awesome reading month! I love that audible brought that back too! Have a great week 🙂
Right. It pissed me off. I started giving away Audiobook.com credits.
Jessica @ a GREAT read
We’re ever so slowly get into some fall weather! We’ve about a half week of heat and then it will drop…just as I am about to go out of town! Typical! Lol!
Those are new to me ones! And whoa! Deadmarsh Fey looks creepy with that cover! Hope you enjoy your new reads!
Here’s my STS
Have a GREAT day!
Old Follower 🙂
We go back and forth like the winds. Hot, cold, freezing, lol I am excited about Deadmarsh Fey!
Michelle @Because Reading
You did awesome this month! I have to try Libby but my library stinks when it comes to book. I have been considering going to the next town over if they allow that.
I hope you have a fantastic week, Kim! Happy Reading! ox
Ours lends with others in the state so it tends to have more.
Time is going way too fast. Doesn’t it seem, the older you get the faster it goes? Congrats on the reading. Sounds like you will surpass your goal.
Yes, you are correct.
you are definitely a master in extreme reading! My library has its own app, which I do not like. But it is convenient I can scan barcode and the library will look for it in the system.
That doesn’t sound cost efficient. Doe it work well to read and borrow on?
you can’t read from it, I have to use Overdrive for audiobooks or ebooks. But borrowing is convenient yes
Ah. I am not a fan of Overdrive but love using Libby.
i should try Libby, maybe my library is on it too. overdrive is not really friendly i think
Sim @ Flipping Through the Pages
Wow, 26 books? That’s something incredible. I did read some books but a way less than I expected. The week went by quite fast 😀
Some weeks I only manage one or two then other weeks I read one a day.
I have seemed to slow down on reading but hopefully, I sill still make my goal. Great job on all your reading. Fraterfest looks fun. I look forward to hearing about all the scary books you read.
I am sure you will. I have been ahead by 15 books more or less since I got sick over the summer.
Twenty-six books?! That’s a great reading month! How do you do that?! Some Faustian deal?! =P I wish I could read so much (it would be helpful for my master thesis).
Wishes of a great week.
Little TV, little sleep, etc.
Wow, fantastic reading month! Due to a massive reading slump, I only read two books in September, but I hope to read more this month!
Have a wonderful week!
I haven’t had one of those since I began DNFing. Although it is still rare that I do it.
Sounds like September was a good reading/ listening month. 26 books in a month is great. I like the sound of Kill the Queen so I’ll have to check out your giveaway.
Enjoy your new books and have a great week!
One of my favorites this year Lola!
Deb Nance at Readerbuzz
You are having a great reading year. Last month was especially great! That’s almost a book a day.
Yes. I think it was the final month of the KU deal that pushed my numbers. I did the 3 month Prime deal for 99 cents.
Looks like another good week of book reviews is on the horizon!
I’ve got a nice mix coming up this month.
As everyone else said, 26 books is pretty amazing. That’s unfortunately close to my total for the whole year (I’ve had a busy year in RL). Good job!
I had many a year where I was lucky to see 26 for a yearly total and a few had less than a dozen.
26 books is awesome! We got a new library app, libby, which I like so much more than Overdrive. I always take my audiobooks out via the eLibrary or Hoopla, and am starting to check out some books too, now that my review books are slowing down. Have fun during Fraterfest!
Yes. I hated OverDrive and love the Libby App. Not sure if we have Hoopla.
Crazy that it’s October already right?! I’m wondering where summer went?
210 books this year so far? Wow.. I’ll be happy to get to 50 this year. LOL!
Have a great week and happy reaidng!
You had a busy year!
Stephanie Jane (Literary Flits)
26 is amazing reading! Go you!
I want to look into library ebooks, but it’s tricky to set up while travelling around and I am not even sure if UK libraries are that 21st century yet?
Pre-blogging I used the library all the time, and for a while got both physical books and ebooks delivered to my Nook, but it was wonky and I stopped. I hated Overdrive, but this new Libby App works wonderfully.
Nicci @ Sunny Buzzy Books
26 books?! You’re a reading/listening ninja!
Have a great week!
*grins* Book Ninja.
Bwahahaha I love your GIF Kim and thanks for the links. Seems that you had a good reading week!
That GIF made me smile. Happy to share Sophie!
Evelina @ AvalinahsBooks
Wow, that’s a lot of books! I barely read anything last week. Don’t even know where it went!
I have had weeks like that my friend. I hope this week is better for you!
Jovita @ Inky Impressions
You did have a fabulous September. I also recently downloaded Libby, and finding some cool features. Love my Oasis! Have a great week.
Glad you are enjoying them.
Lexxie @ (un)Conventional Bookworms
Oh wow, Kimberly! That’s quite the reading month! You are definitely on your way to crushing your yearly goal.
I hope you’ll enjoy your new books. Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.
Seems to me you are crushing your yearly goal too my friend!
That was a great reading month for you! I’m excited to start Fraterfest, though I’m having to sort out a hiccup with my TBR. I should get it sorted soon though. I hope you have a great week!
Oh no…hope it all works out.
Dani @ Perspective of a Writer
I am so looking forward to Fraterfest!! It’s going to be super fun to dive into the books I picked… And what an incredible month of reading / listening Kimberly! <3
i am looking forward to it as well. I’m being optimistic and hope to read a book a day. Probably won’t happen but I will give it my all.
Tressa @ Wishful Endings
That’s a fabulous amount of books, Kimberly! Glad your library has become more helpful. Have a fabulous week!
Wow, what a great reading week! Your new books look good…I want the Robyn Carr book. Thanks for sharing…and for hosting.
Always good to have a Carr book.
Wow 26 books is something! What a way to spend some quality time:) I’ve been reading a bunch too. Not sure how many though. I’ll have to check on that. Have a lovely Sunday and new week:)
I count them up at the end of each month. It is always the month’s I think I did just ok, that I am surprised by the number.
Wow good reading month! And yay for FraterFest! I haven’t done a readaton in ages.
Hope you’re having a nice weekend Kimba!
I am looking forward to it myself Greg. Happy reading and enjoy your week.
