Spell the Month in Books September Linkup 2021

September is an awfully long month to spell in books – do you think we’ll make it this time, Reader? I have faith.

My life is almost entirely taken up with children’s literature and research planning at the moment, so I don’t have a long intro for today’s post. I’m basically just popping up for air to write this post, and then it’s back to reading and analyzing books for 5-10 year olds. It’s fun, but mildly chaotic. Anyways, here’s the run down on Spell the Month in Books, in case you’re new here or need a refresher:

The goal is to spell the name of the current month by using the first letter of book titles (skipping articles like A, An, and The). This can be done with books you have on hand, creating a physical bookstack, or by building a virtual bookstack. Sometimes I share themes a few months in advance to focus your book search, but following the theme is entirely optional. Once you have your stack, share it whatever way is convenient for you. Some bloggers do this by creating a post and adding a link to it in linkup widget toward the bottom of this page (click on the blue button that says “Click here to enter”). You can also share your list in a comment (with or without a link) or share a picture of your stack/list with the hashtag #SpelltheMonthinBooks on your preferred social media site. Regardless of how you participate, feel free to grab the button from the bottom of this page to include with it. This is a new button as of February 2021!

There was no theme set for September, so for my list this month I’m simply aiming to use books I have read and enjoyed.

    1. I would love for you to join in October! Next month’s linkup will open October 9 and be open until November 12. And Reached is absolutely amazing! I think I’m due for a re-read on the trilogy…maybe this winter?

      1. I haven’t read that one, I have a thing about books set on boats…for some reason I never enjoy them 😅 I’ve read almost all of the author’s other books, though!

      2. Oh, that makes sense, lol. I does take place on land for a small part of the time, but maybe not enough. 😉 The reason I asked is cause there’s a subtle tie-in to the Matched trilogy.

        That’s really fun! I loved Atlanta.


      3. I liked Atlantia too! Not quite as much as the Matched trilogy, but I still liked it. And now I’m intrigued with the tie-in…maybe I’ll have to reconsider at some point. We’ll see!
