THE READING QUEUE: September Wrap-Up and October TBR 2014

The Reading Queue is a monthly meme hosted by 
This is where we can all share what our reading plans for the month, 
and give a quick lineup and/or recap of the books we read last month... 

September was an extremely busy month for my family and I, but somehow I still managed to forgo sleep and read a ton of amazing books! 

Sorry, no vlogs this month... I tried to edit my wrap-up vlog from 45 minutes down to 19 minutes, but it was still too long to upload to YouTube :(  No time to redo or do my TBR. I promise to be more organized next time!
