September Book/Art Wrap-Up

IMG_7050

As September has come to an end, I get to share my completions of this month. September went by amazingly fast for some odd reason, but I mean, it’s one month closer to Christmas! I did get a few books read this month, along with a painting and an activity page done. So, I will be listing those today!

I want to start with my art related items first because that’s quick and easy. This month I painted (finally) and I finished a page in my 1,000 Dot to Dot Icons booklet from Michaels (if you missed that Art Haul, check it out here)

Here are some snapshots of those:

This painting is combined with a new technique I’ve learned and I have to say it was pretty successful. The Dot to Dot page was fun as well. It was exciting to see the ending result and to actually have completed one.

And now onto my finished books:

The Hundred Secret Senses by Amy Tan

My Rating: 2.75 out of 5 stars

They’re Not Like Us Volume 1 by Eric Stephenson

My Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

Looking for Alaska by John Green (reread)

My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

So just like last month, I only read 3 books/graphic novels. I realize now that I made my TBR way too ambitiously because I knew I had to focus my reading on my English novel, The Hundred Secret Senses. But there’s always this month…

Speaking of this month, I won’t be posting any reviews on these novels. I might type up one for Looking For Alaska, but other than that I won’t have time to post the others. I will be saying more about this in my October TBR.
