    Can I ask you how many book you have to read to reach your goal of 80% ratio?
    I am in the similar boat, but with even lower ratio (61 atm). I figured out I have to read 15 books to reach 84% (and not request any in the meantime, which will be hard) so this September and October I decided to try my best to reach that 80% goal and finally get that bedge.

    You had a pretty great reading month! 😀 I’m SO HAPPY you enjoyed The Winner’s series because it’s one of my favorite of ever! The Winner’s Crime is sooo heartbreaking, which I love? </3 I also really enjoyed Blue Lily, Lily Blue, too bad it was only a 3.5 for you :') but I'm looking forward to Aristotle and Dante because I've been hearing so many good stuffs about it!

    So glad to hear you’re enjoying The Winner’s series so much. I didn’t fall in love with the first book, but I have to admit I’m still curious to read the rest of the series, and I heard it keeps on getting better, so I can’t wait 🙂
    Aristotle and Dante was SO good, I loved it! 🙂
    Happy Reading, and have a great September! 🙂
