The end of summer is always bittersweet, even now that I live in the adult world with a full-time job and a house. It feels like I’m back at university and returning to school.
I’ve gotten a lot of reading done this year but not so many reviews. I’m slowly trying to recitfy that. I’ll be working on the ARCs I have for releases in November and trying not to devour the books I’m most excited about for September.
What I Read
- The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin ★★
- The Southern Book Clubs Guide to Slaying Vampires by Grady Hendrix ★ DNF
- Salt by Hannah Moskowitz ★ DNF
- Ash Princess (Ash Princess Trilogy, #1) by Laura Sebastian ★★★
- The Night Country (The Hazel Wood, #2) by Melissa Albert ★★
- A Burning by Megha Majumdar ★★★★
- A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #2) ★★★★
- Ink & Sigil (Ink & Sigil, #1) by Kevin Hearne
- The World That We Know by Alice Hoffman ★★★
- Lady Smoke (Ash Princess Trilogy, #2) by Laura Sebastian ★★★
This month did not start off great – two books that have been on my TBR list were do not finishes. I randomly decided to reread A Court of Mist and Fury – I still don’t know why but again a favorite of mine. I have to say the The World That We Knew by Alice Hoffman was a disappointing read for me and I really love
- Helm of Darkness (War on the Gods, #1) by A.P. Mobley
- Ember Queen (Ash Princess Trilogy, #3) by Laura Sebastian
- Fable (Fable, #1) by Adrienne Young
- The Left-handed Booksellers of London by Garth Nix
- Skyhunter (Skyhunter, #1) by Marie Lu
- A Deadly Education by Naomi Novik
- Blood & Honey (Serpent & Dove, #2) by Shelby Mahurin
There are a lot of books being released this month that I can’t wait for. I think I’ve pre-ordered ever one except Skyhunter!
