September 2017 Recap & What’s Coming Next

Books that I rated between a 4.5 and a 5:

Phobia Renegade X Silence is Golden Nevernight Into this River

Books that I rated between a 3.5 and a 4.5:

Moxie Gummy Bears Grenades Ruin and Rising The Unsuitable Heir

Books that I rated between a 2.5 and a 3.5:

The Quarterback Masked

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

The Uncrossing Monster My New Crush Gave to Me caraval All in Fear

The Potentials

All the Bright Places All the boys I've loved before Autoboyography Godsgrave Savage Song Dark Duet

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.

Was your September as good as mine?  Did you enjoy all the books your read?  How about, did you read anything I did?

I’d love to hear what you have on deck for October?  Anyone else planning something special for Halloween?

About Birdie

Don’t look for her in any bar, club, crazy raging party, or anywhere there may be a large gathering of strangers. She’s more likely to be found tucked into the corner of the couch watching one of her favorite shows, or preferably under a comforter with her current novel.

  1. I haven’t anything of the books you’ve read, but I’m looking forward to reading Caraval and Nevernight!
    Haven’t got anything special planned for Halloween [yet], but I might check out what readathons are planned for that period. I have my own monthly challenge going on, so I’ll be focusing on that as much as possible, haha.

    Have fun readiiiing!


  2. I hope to get to Moxie and My New Crush Gave to Me in October, but I have crazy amounts of books to read, and my library holds keep going through and sabotaging my plans. All the Bright Places is so good *crying* and I loved Autoboyography so much.


  3. I’m pleased that you had such a good month in regards to reading! Here’s hoping October is just as good 😀 The cover for ‘Uncrossing’ is gorgeous and ‘All In Fear’ looks very creepy – perfect for Halloween month!

    Looks like you had a really great month 🌸
    I really want to read Nevernight and Moxie; I’ve heard they’re both such great books! I absolutely loved To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before and All The Bright Places and I highly recommend them!
    Hope you have a lovely October xx
