Wrap Up || September.

wrapup

Hey!

September flew by, as almost every month this year has! Not complaining, because it’s my favorite time of the year. THE HOLIDAYS! I am so ready for all the holiday fun, candy, and food to come in the next few months. As for September though, it was a pretty good month. I was able to take a trip to Illinois to visit family, the hubby started a new job, and things might be falling into place? I guess we’ll see what happens.

As far as reading goes, I think I did a pretty decent job with that this month. I was able to read five books and listen to an audiobook. I even started two others that I will hopefully finish soon. I am posting my wrap up a few days early, because I am taking the rest of the month (really only three days) off from reading. I feel a slump coming on and I can’t afford that, especially with what I hope (and need) to read in October. So I don’t plan to have any more books to add to my wrap up.

Now onto my wrap up of the books that I read in September. You can find a full list of these books and the other books I read this year over here. All will be linked to Goodreads below and I will also link to individual blog posts if I did a review for them.

Physically Read Books:
These are the books that I read myself (not audiobooks) throughout the month of September.

psistillloveyoualwaysandforevertemptationofadamnotevenbonesSHADOWOFTHEFOX

P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han – 4 out of 5 stars.
Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han – 4 out of 5 stars.
I was able to finish the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before series this month by reading P.S. I Still Love You and Always and Forever, Lara Jean. I really liked both books, but P.S. I Still Love You was not my favorite of the three. I really liked the ending of the series and thought it was really good. I will say though that Kitty started to annoy me in book two and I honestly couldn’t stand her anymore in book three.

The Temptation of Adam by Dave Connis – 3 out of 5 stars.
I mentioned how I thought about DNF The Temptation of Adam, because it ended up getting really boring and I grew to almost hate one of the characters (Dez). I decided to push through it since I only had 30% left. I’m glad I finished it, but I still expected more from it and was a bit of a let down. I still liked some of it though, so I guess it wasn’t a complete fail. There was a lot of quote worthy stuff in it at least.

Not Even Bones by Rebecca Shaeffer – Review – 5 out of 5 stars.
HOLY CRAP NOT EVEN BONES WAS AMAZING! Fast-paced, creepy, exciting, gory, and so fun to read. Feel free to check out my review for more!

Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa – Review – 5 out of 5 stars.
Julie Kagawa continues to WOW me. Shadow of the Fox was everything I hoped it would be. THE FEELS, YOU GUYS! Great world building, fast paced, fun adventure, great characters, Japanese legends and culture. I don’t know how I am going to survive not having the sequel in my hands right now. Feel free to check out my review for more!


Audiobooks:
These are the books that I listened to the audio versions throughout the month of September.

fivepeopleyoumeetinheaven

The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom – 5 out of 5 stars.
This was a reread for me, because I was sent an ARC of the sequel and I needed to reread The Five People You Meet in Heaven because it’s been YEARS since I read it the first time. I am so happy I reread it though, because I loved it just as much as I did back then. This time I listened to the audiobook though and it was so good. There was even some sound effects and music throughout it.


Currently Reading Books:
These are the books that I started to read in the month of September, but didn’t get a chance to finish them yet.

sadiethenogoodnine

Sadie by Courtney Summers
The No-Good Nine by John Bemelmans Marciano

I’m about 30% into Sadie and so far it’s pretty interesting. Nothing too crazy has happened yet though. I am taking a little break from it right now, because I really need to read The No-Good Nine and get my review drafted since I am part of the blog tour that is happening this month and I want to have it finished and ready to go when my tour date comes around. I hope to have these both finished in October along with some other books.

What books did you read in September? Have you read any of the books I read? Feel free to link me to your wrap up posts if you have one!

I’ll have my September book haul up on Monday and I will have my Halloweenie TBR posted in the next few days. In my TBR post, I’ll talk about all the spooky reads that I hope to have time for and some upcoming ARCs that I plan to read in October. Be on the look out for those posts coming soon. 😀

In case you missed it;

I hope you have a great day!

  1. Looks like you had a really good reading month! I really like the idea of just taking a few day off from reading when you feel a slump coming on. i tried to push through mine and ended up not wanting to read for 3 weeks. I will have to take your lead and follow that nest time.

  2. I’m so happy you had such a great reading month, Ashley! Stopping to read for a couple of days when you feel a slump coming on seems like a good idea – I hope that slump will never come and that you’ll have amazing reads this October 🙂 x
