September Wrap Up

Hi! It took me forever to sit down and write this post. I was going to start October strong and ended up not posting for a week… typical!

Anyway… introductions are hard and I’m not the best at them. Here’s all the books I read in September, stats, and all the other good things.

  • Number of books read: 7
  • Number of pages read: 2978
  • Average star rating: 4.1 stars
  • TBR at the start of the month: 46
  • Books added: 6
  • Books read: 1
  • Current TBR: 51

As you can see I went a bit crazy buying books… and not reading them. It’s already a trend in October also. What can I say… everyone knows collecting books and reading books are two different hobbies.

Fable by Adrienne Young

I have a full review up for Fable here if you fancy checking it out, but to give you my quick thoughts – I thought the beginning up until about the halfway point dragged like crazy and I considered DNFing it. The ending made up for it slightly.

Into The Bright Unknown by Rae Carson

I have loved the first two books in this series, but this finale disappointed me slightly. It didn’t feel as eventful and high stakes as the first two books, and the ending wasn’t my favourite. That being said I still very much enjoyed it. It just didn’t wow me.

The Dragon Republic by R.F. Kuang

I listened to this one on audio and thoroughly enjoyed it. This trilogy is proving to be a very well thought out and executed fantasy series. I think The Dragon Republic was as good as The Poppy War, just as dark, gritty and violent. The middle meandered a bit too much for me, hence docking a star. I cannot wait to finish the series.

The Beast and the Bethany by Jack Meggitt-Phillips

What a wonderful read! I’ve given my thoughts on it already here so I’ll refrain from repeating myself.

🌟🌟🌟🌟

Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery

I have finally reread Anne of Green Gables last month (after I’ve bought myself a matching set of those covers) and it was just as great and magical as I remembered. Anne is honestly my spirit animal. I laughed, I cried… Gilbert Blythe is to this day deserving of the biggest fictional crush title (jeez, that sounds creppy sice he’s young in this book, but I don’t mean it in THAT way).

The Inheritance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

I don’t want to sound like a broken record. I have a review for this YA gem, too, right here. I was very pleasantly surprised by it, it doesn’t happen often that a YA mystery inspires any more than a meh reaction from me.

Why I’m No Longer Talking To White People About Race by Reni Eddo-Lodge

And lastly, I actually read a non-fiction! Well… listened to a non-fiction. I think it’s a really important read, one that opened my eyes to a lot of things related to race, and through a different lens too, as it gives a British narrative rather than an American one. I would definitely recommend giving this one a read if you are trying to educate yourself more on the subject of race and racism and working on not only how to not be racist, but anti racist.

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

And that is all for today. I’m sorry if the formatting of this is weird – it’s the first time I’m posting from my phone and I’m not sure how everything works in app (hence the star emojis rather than rating – I’ve no idea how to add that).

As always, thank you for reading and until the next time!
