Ahhh September, that means autumn has arrived and I can now settle in bed in the evenings and read my book. Wait, that’s what I was doing all Summer long. Oh well, at least I’m consistent.
September has been another good reading month for me (it’s because I’ve got no social life but that’s another blog post). Last month I managed to break my personal best and read 10 books. This month I managed 10 again! I love that! Let’s hope I can keep it up in October.
Anyway, onto the books:
First Up is ‘the stone rainbow’ by Liane Shaw. This book was sadly a miss for me, it was unoriginal, preachy and bland. It had annoying, whiny characters. It gets points for its diversity rep, but a let down. It’s out now. ⭐️⭐️
Secondly was ‘Serpent & Dove’ by Shelby Mahurin. THIS IS THE BEST YA BOOK I HAVE READ ALL YEAR. THAT IS ALL. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Then was ‘Six Goodbyes We Never Said’ by Candace Ganger. I was surprised how much I enjoyed this book. Fantastic characters, and a brilliant mental health rep. Plus the characters didn’t lose their personalities. Fantastic. Out now. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Next up was ‘The Mating Habit of Stags’ by Roy Robinson. I loved this book fantastic characters, a great story and beautiful descriptions of a lush landscape. Out now ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Then I read ‘The First Lady and the Rebel’ by Susan Higginbotham. This had all the ingredients to be a great book but failed. It was boring. I usually love historical fiction so it hurts me to say. Out October 1st. ⭐️⭐️
Next up was ‘Royals’ by Emma Forrest. I did enjoy this book but it was something out of nothing. Not much happens. But it did have good characters and was a quick read. Out October 31st. ⭐️⭐️⭐️
After this I read ‘The Death of Me’ by M.J. Tyja. I enjoyed this book, more than I thought I would. Full on intrigue and it kept me guessing till the end. Out October 1st. ⭐️⭐️⭐️
Next was ‘Blackberry and Wild Rose’ by Sonia Velton. I throughly enjoyed this. It’s a great historical fiction novel, with a fantastic story. Great characters and interesting details. I loved it. Out October 3rd ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Then I read ‘The Choke’ by Sofie Laguna. It’s been a while since a character captured my heart like the main one did in this book. It was beautiful. So glad I read this. Out October 3rd. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.5
Lastly was ‘Into The Crooked Place’ by Alexandra Christo. What a great book. I loved it. Great characters, interesting magic! I need book two now. Out October 8th ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
So there it is, my monthly wrap up. I hope you’ve all had a great month! Let me know!
Until the next review
