Another month is nearly gone. I only posted twice on my blog this month, sadly. I started school in August and with school comes homework. Because of that, I also only read one book this month.
I do have some plans for my blog next month. I want post reviews, discussions, and other book-related stuff on a somewhat regular basis.
Now to the things I've enjoyed in the month of September.
// K-Drama Webseries //
These shows have 12-18 episodes that are only around 15 minutes each. I really like watching these types of shows when I don't have time to watch a normal hour-long episode of a tv show.
Exo Next Door and To Be Continued are both so adorable and fun. I hope to find more webseries like these two.
// Doctor Who season 8 //
Netflix recently added season 8, much to the excitement of my family and I. I was, however, skeptical of Peter Capaldi's portrayal of the Doctor when I first started this series. By the end though I started to warm up to him. The Doctor and Clara had many dramatic things happen to them at the end, so this season ended in a bit of a cliffhanger. I'm looking forward to season 9 's release.
// She Reads Truth App//
This free app has The Bible in it and allows you to add notes, highlight, and bookmark verses. Plus, it also comes with free, beautiful lockscreens for iphones.
// DramaFever App//
This app, which is very similar to Hulu, has a lot of Asian tv shows ( I watch k-dramas on it). The app and a account are free. If you want to watch new episodes and have no commercials you get a premium account, which is a few dollars a month. I just use the free services, and it works great for me.
// Hi- Chew candy //
These delicious candies actually taste like whatever fruit flavor they are. I want to try out the other flavors really soon.
What about you?
What are some things you've enjoyed this month?

This video got me thinking (please watch it before reading the rest of the post).
Now, I don't hate Christian romance novels; Julie Klassen and Jen Turano are two of my favorite authors. However, I do think Katie Gregoire made some good points.
Just because a book is labeled as 'Christian' doesn't mean that it's brings Glory to God and is appropriate. I think it's good to be careful what you read, even if it's techinically 'Christian'.
For me, moderation is the key to reading Christian romance novels. I find if all I'm reading are those type of books I start thinking things , like " I wonder if/when I will meet the right man'' or ''I wish I knew guys like the guys in this book''.
I know this could be a controversial topic.
I also know that most of you enjoy reading Christian romance novels. I'm not trying to put you down or trying to convince you to give them up. I just wanted to bring up a topic that isn't discussed much in the Christian blogging world.
Now that you've heard my opinion on this subject, I want to hear yours.
Do you agree with what Katie said in the video?
Why or why not?
All I ask is that you keep it a friendly and open discussion.
