BREAKING NEWS: I read not one, but TWO books in September. That is what I call a miracle.
For those of you who don’t know, I’ve not finished an entire book in over 2 months, so that fact that I read one is an achievement in itself.
The books in question were both hits. I finally read the conclusion to the ever-entertaining and stress-inducing Illuminae Files. Obsidio really delivered on all fronts for me and was a stellar conclusion to the series. I also picked up Neil Gaiman’s Norse Mythology book, which is a collection of some of the most memorable and entertaining Norse tales. Gaiman did a phenomenal job of capturing the spirit of the gods.
In other news, there is actually not a lot to report on in my life. I’m still pushing through the daily grind of working, sleeping, then working again. My life has a become very formulaic in its routine and it’s making me restless.
On the blogging front, I am still struggling to find that life/work/blog balance, but I am trying to be a bit more consistent in my posting/blog-hopping. It’s hard, and while logically I know I’m doing the best I can it’s still easy to feel out of the loop at times. On that note, here is a summary of September’s posts.

Keep reading. Unfortunately, I can already feel myself slipping back into the slump. It’s mainly because I don’t know what I’m in the mood to read so I don’t feel as motivated to do so. We all know the worst thing you can do is force yourself to read, so I’ll see where things take me.
On that note, I have no specific goal for October. I love the crispness in the air this time of year, so I’m all about embracing the autumn weather. I’ve almost caught up on the Vikings as well and I genuinely have no idea what I’ll do with myself once I finish. I’ll need some TV recommendations to fill that void.
