September Wrap Up!

September Wrap Up!

BOOK REVIEW (55).png
October is here! October is definitely my favourite reading month, I love reading a dark and spooky read with a cup of tea and a warm fuzzy blanket. I’m hoping to get through quite a few books in October but for September I managed to read twelve books and one short story. So without further rambling here are the books I read in September!

1. Ruin and Rising – Leigh Bardugo14061957
I FINALLY READ IT. Even though I loved the first two books in the series and have read them more than once I had never read Ruin and Rising. I finally read it in September and it was amazing. I’ve grown so attached to these characters and I thought it was the perfect ending to the series. I’m so excited to continue on with reading Leigh Bardugo’s books because she does such an amazing job of creating these complex characters you can’t help but love. (5/5 stars)

401893842. Snapshot – Brandon Sanderson
This short little book is a science fiction story in which snapshots of an event are taken and police officers can enter the snapshot to find out exactly what happened and help to solve a case. The book does a lot in such a short amount of pages and the ending completely blew my mind. This is definitely a must read for Brandon Sanderson fans. (3/5 stars)

3. P.S. I Still Love You – Jenny Han20698530
I picked up the next instalment of the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before series and I enjoyed this one just as much as the first. Sweet and cute, this is the perfect light and fun read. I raced through it and really liked the introduction of John. (4/5 stars)

4. Fight Club – Chuck Palahniuk
This is one of those well known books I’ve been meaning to read for a long time and honestly, I’m not really sure I got it. I didn’t like the writing style at all and I didn’t connect with any of the characters. Fight Club definitely wasn’t a book for me. (2/5 stars)

5. What If It’s Us – Becky Albertalli & Adam Silveria39704614 (1)
THIS BOOK IS SO CUTE AND ADORABLE. I love Arthur and Ben so much. This story is so fun and enjoyable and I raced through it because I loved the characters so much. I did feel the plot was a little on the predictable side, but overall this is a gorgeous contemporary story that fans of these authors will absolutely adore. (4/5 stars)

34220480 (2)6. Another Place – Matthew Crow 
This was the first book I read for Contemporary-AThon and I really enjoyed it. The story is a mystery following the disappearance of a young girl and I enjoyed the twisty turny parts of the story. I won’t go into much detail because you can get more of my thoughts from my Contemporary-AThon wrap up here! (4/5 stars)

7. A Thousand Perfect Notes – C. G. Drews36389267 (1)
This was another read for Contemporary-AThon. It was a really beautiful, emotional read and I’m so glad I picked it up after sitting on my shelves for a few months. It’s definitely stayed with me even after finishing it. (4/5 stars)

39018329 (1)8. Easy Prey – Catherine Lo
I hadn’t expected to love this book as much as I did. This story follows three students blamed for releasing racy pictures of a teacher online and all three claim they are not responsible. The story jumps between time and character until the perpetrator is revealed and it was such a fantastic read. (5/5 stars)

9. Always and Forever Lara Jean – Jenny Han35247769 (1)
I used the Contemporary-AThon to read the last book in this lovely series. It was bitter sweet and I enjoyed it so much. I’m definitely going to be picking up more Jenny Han books in the future. (4/5 stars)

40127369 (1)10. The Gilded King – Josie Jaffrey
This fantasy novel blends so many different elements, from immortal vampires to a post apocalyptic world with zombies like beings. Told in alternating points of view it was such an intense, gripping read and I enjoyed it from start to finish. (4/5 stars)

37854049 (1)11. The Sisters of the Winter Wood – Rena Rossner
This has got to be my favourite book that I read in September. The tale of two sisters who can shape shift – one into a swan and the other a bear – and what happens when they are left on their own while they parents visit a dying relative. It was dark, creepy and fairy tale like and I absolutely loved it. You can read my full review of this book here! (5/5 stars)
2464180012. The Demon in the Wood – Leigh Bardugo
This is a very short story following the Darkling before the events of the Grisha trilogy. It was really fascinating to see another side to his character and learn more about his life with Baghra. My only complaint is that it was too short and I would love a whole novel about him and how he became the Darkling. (5/5 stars)

13. Slade House – David Mitchell24500887
This is another book that has been on my shelves for ages. It follows a brother and sister who lure people into their house in order to use their souls to give them ever-lasting life. I listened to this on audiobook and while I enjoyed the story I think perhaps I might have enjoyed it more if I had read it rather than listened to it. (3/5 stars)

So that’s my wrap up for September! What did you read in September and have you read any of these? If you have let me know what you thought!

    1. It’s just the perfect season for thrillers and spooky books! Thank you, I don’t know where I manage to find the time to read them all! I was so disappointed with Fight Club. I totally expected to love it because it’s such a popular book but it definitely wasn’t for me. Hope you have a great October too! 😊
