September 2017 Book Haul, Wrap-Up and October TBR


Hi there! I hope you are all doing well... 
in light of all the bad things that have been happening in the world, I am trying really hard to keep things in perspective and appreciate everything that I have. Being a mom to all young boys and having family in Puerto Rico has really taken a toll on me and my family. It's been difficult trying to help my boys understand everything that has happened, and also, trying to keep a positive mind while waiting to hear directly from our family members (we have received calls second-handedly letting us know that they are alive and as well as can be in their circumstances, but not from them directly yet)... in the meantime, I have been told that trying to do what makes us happy is a good way to stay calm, patient and find peace. So here I am, sharing my belated book haul, wrap-up, and TBR :) 

Many hugs to you all!!! 

...

Here are all the books I've read and accumulated throughout September :)

  1. It's so scary all the things that are going on in the world, escaping into books is a great comfort, though! Sending you lots of hugs! <3
