September Wrap-Up | It was a weird month

September flew by, it feels like August was only a few days ago but at the same time it feels like school has started forever ago… September was an odd reading month for me. Some books took me forever to get through and some I read so quickly! I took part in the #TackleTBR readathon in which I read a lot and which was a lot of fun!

Overall I read 9 books in September, which is a lot but not as much as I normally read in a month. Over the past months, I have read at least 11 books per month (if I remember correctly), but that’s okay. I do wish I had been able to finish one more book this month because then I would have completed my goodreads challenge of 100 books!

As I did last month, I will award three prizes to books with the categories “the most original”, “the most addictive” and “the most surprising”

The most original

5470

This book was really interesting, because of the world it is set in. It is very extreme and it is intriguing to see how people would act in a world so different from our own.

The most addictive (and most surprising)

18692431

I read this book in a really short time and every time I put it away I just had to continue. I just couldn’t sleep until I finished this book. I did not know what book to award the most surprising category to, so I choose this book again. Simply because I didn’t expect to enjoy this book as much as I did.

What is your most original, addictive and surprising read last month?

September Wrap-Up + TBR

This month was a busy one, my classes started and with it piles of homework and reading I had to do. It has also been a big change in my life, because I moved out and I am now living in a student house with two lovely people. And above that I started the Blogger’s house cup which is a lot of fun.

What I read this month:

1984 by George Orwell ★★★ 1984 by George Orwell

This book I picked up because it was on my dad’s shelf and I thought it would be interesting. I read Animal Farm for my English class a few years ago and that was really good too. Anyway, the book was really interesting, but also very slow and quite boring at some points. Especially the parts from some other book were really uninteresting. I skipped those.

 

The Heart of Betrayal by Mary E. PearsonThe Heart of Betrayal by Mary E. Pearson ★★★★ 

Lia is one of my favourite characters of all time, I love her and I love the series. I am currently reading the third book in the series and it’s so good! I would recommend the Remnant Chronicles to anyone! (also the audiobooks are all on youtube so if you like audiobooks, give it a go!)

 

 

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. RowlingHarry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by J.K. Rowling ★★★★

I reread this book, and I LOVED it the first time, but the second time was a little less. Still really good though!

 

 

Everything, EverythingEverything, Everything by Nicola Yoon ★★★★★

I loved this book, it was so original and I read it in less than a day. So addictive! I wrote a review here.

 

 

 

 

The Distance from Me to You by The Distance from Me to You by Marina  GessnerMarina Gessner ★★★☆ 

I think this deserves a 3.5 star rating. I really enjoyed the book but the ending was a bit anti-climactic. The book build up from a sort of constant speed to a lot happening and a lot of tension and then the end it was like “we’re out of pages let’s just finish it right now”. Also it was not a happy ending, and not a sad ending but more an okay ending? It kinda ruined it for me.
This book would be an amazing movie!

Persuasion by Jane Austen

Persuasion by Jane Austen ★★★☆ 

I quite enjoyed it but not as much as I enjoyed Pride & Prejudice. It took me a while to get through it. I loved how Anne, the main character, is a lot like me. I feel like we’re almost the same person.

Amy & Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson

 

 

Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson ★★★☆

I didn’t love it as much as I loved Since You’ve Been Gone, but considering that I was still reading it at night until 1 am it was pretty good 🙂

What I will read next month:

 I am not yet sure what I will read but it will definitely include: Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen, Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo and The Beauty of Darkness by Mary E. Pearson. You can find what else I might read here.
