Blog, Wrap Ups

I didn’t read much but that’s ok // September Wrap Up

Hello and howdy :))

I feel like I’m falling apart. I’m covered in bruises thank to: falling out of bed, tripping over a road sign, walking into really hard bench corners. Also I’m hungry because sure, fruit tastes nice, but it’s not very filling.

OK. I’m done complaining now. Sometimes you just need to get this stuff off your chest, I’m just sorry you guys get the brunt end of it.

Anyways, today I’m here to talk about what I read in September aka “my last month of freedom”. I was hoping to read a decent amount of books this month and … that didn’t really happen.

I read five books this month so it was a god month, I was just hoping for more. That being said though, I’m reminding myself it was a busy month of big changes and instead of reading I spent a lot of time with family and friends so I’m not too mad about it.

New Moon by Stephanie Meyer – In a month when I was trying to read books that had been on my shelf forever and wouldn’t be bringing to uni I decided to start by re-reading a Twilight book. Why? I don’t know I just felt like it. I did read it in less then 24 hours though so I don’t feel guilty. I actually enjoyed this re-read more then expected and hopefully my re-read of Eclipse won’t take two years like this one did!

I See London, I See France by Sarah Mlynowski – I did it!! After having to put this book down when my trip to Italy got cancelled last year, I finally finished this book and really enjoyed it. I loved the mature aspects to this book and how it followed teenagers in college who drank, had sex and did normal teenage things without being villainised!

The Bromance Book Club by Lyssa Kay Adams – At least starting this popular romance series was on my “bookish bucketlist” for this year so I’m happy to announce I’ve read the first book and am currently halfway through the second. I thought this book was good, nothing amazing, but I like the premise of these guys in the bookclub so I think I’ll overall enjoy the series. Can I catch up with this series by the end of the year? Fingers crossed.

Oops by Alexandra Warren – This was a random impulse read because I needed some more cute romance. This was an accidental pregnancy after a one night stand with dislike-to-like style romance and it made for a fun time!

Lore by Alexandra Bracken – It’s kind of embarrassing how this was the first 2021 release I purchased this year, all the way back in January, and only got around to it 9 months later. I felt like I read this at the right time though. It was action packed and sure, towards the end I slowed down my reading cause I was busy, but I loved the fast paced plot and interesting take and twist with classic mythology.

So there was my September in books. Like I said, I was aiming for more but it was a bit of a hectic and crazy month!

As always I’d love to hear your thoughts and feelings on any and all these books, aswell as what you’ve been reading this month! Thanks for reading!!
