September Wrap Up | 2018

September was a wild month for me. It kicked off quickly with my work experience period starting. I was trained up in reception skills to be useful and underwent some work with the marketing girls. I did so well that the workplace offered to hire me. I will now be working in a casual position but I am so ready to get some money in my pocket and learn more!

I didn’t think I would read that much due to working most days of the week for work experience. I managed to shock myself and read 20 books which equalled 6236 pages. I managed to finish a couple audiobooks this month too on the bus to and from work!

As it is with these wrap-ups, most of these reviews will start appearing in the next few weeks so keep an eye out!

Someone’s put a bounty on Emika’s head, and her sole chance for survival lies with Zero and the Blackcoats, his ruthless crew. But Emika soon learns that Zero isn’t all that he seems–and his protection comes at a price.
