   By Fay Clark August was an interesting month, I'm feeling a little burnt out as I have been reading a lot. So here are the SEPTEMBER DO IT, BUY THE BOOK CHALLENGES. I'm hoping as we get into the Autumn seasons we get a cosier reading vibe and the books start pulling us back in! Challenge 1 - Read a book you read at school. Challenge 2 - Read an informative book. Challenge 3 - Read a book with a Farm Setting . Challenge 4 - Read something with a school setting. Challenge 5 - A group pick this time round, read "Lord of the Flies by William Golding". We think this fits the vibe of most of the challenges above! WE love a good theme. Back to school season has started, so books are officially back on the syllabus. Don't forget to come see me on our Instagram page for more updates throughout the month!  @FanUniverses B o o k   Q u e e n   O u t !
