Wow, this month just flew by. Part of me can’t believe that it’s over because so much happened. I’m in full swing of things at school, which means that I barely get anything done. Yet, somehow, I managed to read enough to fill up the month!
So, let’s just do a summary of what I read below.
I read 18 books, which is really good. And, out of those, only 5 were DNFs! I think that might be a record for the past few months. However, my overall rating was 2.6. I rated a lot of the books I read lower than I would have liked.
5/5: A reread for me and I love the book just as much as before. I’m sure that Chantel and I will do a review for it once she’s back to blogging and she’s finished it!
1/5: I DNFed this and it just didn’t work for me. I didn’t like the medium or the story being told. Oh well.
4/5: Even if this is one that’s pretty high up on the list, I didn’t finish it until late in the month. So, this one will come out in October! (Actually, it’s my first October review, so there’s that.) I enjoyed it, but there were definite things that didn’t work.
1/5: Another DNF, but this was a book I was really, really looking forward to. It really didn’t work for me, so I decided to call it quits rather than infuriate myself with the story.
3/5: I got this for BotM and thought it was a pretty good book. Not great or amazing, but pretty good. I don’t know if I’d read it again, but it wasn’t bad.
4.5/5: Another one for October! I really, really enjoyed reading this and it’s hilarious. It has everything I wanted to it and more. So glad that I own it because it’s a perfect read for when you just need a laugh.
1/5: This was a DNF for me. Pretty mediocre and it doesn’t help that I don’t have a huge interest in the original story in the first place.
4/5: Such a solid nonfiction book! Some of this review actually got featured on the publisher’s web-page for the book. I’d recommend it to those who want to read about Anne.
3/5: Average but a good first Silvera book. I don’t think I’ll jump right into his stuff right away, but I wasn’t upset about it.
1/5: This was another DNF for me. I got really far into it, too, and I knew I had to call it quits because the book just wasn’t that great in the end.
2.5/5: I really wanted to like this book, but it didn’t work out for me in the end. I can see people liking it, though! Both main characters are women of color and one is confirmed queer.
1/5: This is the last DNF of September and this was one that I got excited for because I heard good things about it. However, I found it lacking really needed things, so I found myself not liking it and decided to stop reading instead of push on.
2/5: After loving We Are Okay this was a severe letdown. It just wasn’t what I wanted it to be.
2.5/5: Started with a bang but fizzled out. I think I was just hoping for more creepiness from this book in the end.
2.5/5: Some of this, I liked. Most of it, I didn’t. Just didn’t work out like I wanted it to. Alas, since I wanted to read a book about some French history, but it got super dull and off-topic for me.
2/5: This one is slated for October as well, but it was really disappointing. I have one more Schwab book I want to try before I call it quits on her as an author. Just not my style is all.
3.5/5: Yes, another October review! It started so strong but it petered out and became… weird. It left a bad taste in my mouth on a few levels, so I’ll address those in here. Still excited to watch the movie. Not the American one, though.
4/5: This was my satisfying end to September. I really enjoyed it and it was such a strong book overall. Not perfect, but a super strong book.
Even though my overall ratings were pretty low, I still enjoyed this month and thought I had a pretty good one compared to August, so I’m pleased. Keep your eye out for tomorrow since my October TBR will be up then!
