September Wrap Up

Wrap Up (2)

September is supposed to be the start of fall but it is 29 degrees Celsius as I am writing this post! I just want to be able to wear a comfy sweater while drinking a cup of tea and reading a good book, but it is way too hot out for that! Apparently 5 books a month is what I am averaging these days, and I am pretty happy with that.  I have been really happy with the books I have been reading lately as well! I also want to mention that I am half way through Stalking Jack the Ripper and it is amazing so far!

I also reached 700 followers in September and I want to take a moment to thank everyone who follows, likes and comments on my posts! When I started this blog back in May, I never expected to be able to connect with so many amazing people! I truly appreciate you my fellow book lovers!

Favourite Book(s): A Darker Shade of Magic, Wonder Woman

Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriary

26247008

I was in a bit of a reading slump before I picked up this book.  I knew I could count on Liane Moriarty to help pull me out of it! I was intrigued from the first page and I Just had to know what happened at the infamous BBQ! The majority of the characters are unlikable, but that is true for most of her characters, and I kind of love that!

A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

The hype is real! I am so on board with this series! I can not wait to continue on with this series, and I want to read all of her books now. There is a lot of action, great characters, and fantastic world building!

Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo

What Leigh Bardugo did with this iconic character was nothing short of amazing! I thought that there was no way this story could live up to the movie, but I was wrong! I adore Diana and Bardugo captured her perfectly.  I really enjoyed a lot of the side characters that we were introduced to as well.

The Before Now and After Then by Peter Monn

I have been wanting to read Peter’s book ever since I started watching his Youtube videos! I am so happy that I was finally able to get my hands on a copy.  It is such a charming coming of age story, and I loved finding all the connections to Peter’s real life.

The History of Bees by Maja Lunde

32920292

This book was great! Maja Lunde is an incredible writer, and I am sucker for any story of that told from the perspective of different generations of main characters.  There has been a lot in the news about bees lately, and this book really highlights their importance. I enjoyed all the characters, and it was interesting to see how their stories are connected.

I am so excited to try and tackle my Fall TBR this month! This time of year is probably when I do my most reading.  There is just something comforting and cozy about the fall that makes me want to dive in to a good book! What was your favourite book this month?

  1. Your September sounded like a great month. Congrats on getting 700 followers. You deserve it all. I tend to average about 3-5 books a month as well and I am so happy that you’re on the hype wagon for the Shades of Magic series. I hope you enjoy the rest of the series and that the autumn weather finally sets in. ๐Ÿ˜€

  4. Congrats on reaching 700 followers that s awesome! Iโ€™m a huge fan of Leigh Bardugo but I couldnโ€™t get into Wonder Woman. I saw the movie and loved it and I think I tried to read this too close to seeing the movie? I was in Wonder Woman overload. Anyway, I have heard great things about it and will pick it up again soon!

    Wonder Woman is on my TBR for October; I recently watched the movie and it was just so great seeing a female superhero, so I can’t wait to read the book. I’m also hoping to start The Darker Shade of Magic series before the end of the year!
