The High’s & Low’s!
As I mentioned in my review, The Phobia of Renegade X came out this month. I wait so long for each installment of this series, getting a new one is always exciting. I love Superhero novels, and this one is my favorite. Speaking of Superhero books, I also read Masked. It was more of a let down. I didn’t hate it, but I definitely didn’t love it.
I also got my hands on Silence is Golden, read Nevernight, and finally tackled Into this River I Drown. For different reasons, all three of these books were the best of the best in September. They’re definitely bookshelf worthy, all of them. (I already own Nevernight, but I’ll be buying the other two as soon as possible!)
I also read a THIRDS novella, which is always enjoyable. I flew through Moxie and it was a true girl power story. I can’t wait to share it with my daughter. I want to drown her in Moxie Girl paraphernalia. I’d buy it if the author sold it. And finally, I also completed the Shadow and Bone trilogy, and Sins in the Cities. They were both solid endings.
I didn’t read any books that I hated, thankfully. If I have to choose, the one I enjoyed least was The Quarterback. The writing wasn’t inspiring or memorable. Obviously I didn’t hate it, since I gave it 3 stars, but I already struggle to remember more than just the synopsis.
So, again, I didn’t have a bad month. Every time I write these I think about how I’m generally a happy reader. I love that I rarely rate anything lower than 3 stars. I’m easy to please. 🙂
Next Month Reads
On the Schedule
I feel like I have a lot on my plate in October. I have 5 books already planned for review. Which should be just fine, no problem. Except, this month all my potential reads are actually ones that have to be read in October too, they’re just not physically on my calendar. That means that I have to at least read 11 books this month. That doesn’t leave much room for random selections. Thank goodness these 5 books are on the top of my to read list anyway.
