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.
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!
I’ve been meaning to read This Savage Song and The Dark Duet for AGES, so I’m very interested to hear what you think of them if you get to them!
I’ve been dying to also! I was thinking I would try to squeeze them in for Halloween, for a ‘Monsters’ of Verity Halloween special. If you want to make it a buddy read, I’m all in. 😀

Ooo that sounds fun!! I’m totally down for a buddy read! Let me know when you’re planning on reading 😀
Probably not for a couple weeks yet. I’ve got to get a few others under my belt first. Next up is All the Bright Things.

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.
I’m so excited for both of them. I’ve been looking forward to both of them.
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!
Uncrossing was good! I enjoyed it!
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
I started All the Bright Places and so far I like it. You should definitely read Nevernight! It was awesome!!
I was just talking about readathons! I want to do one soon. I’m starting Caraval next. I’m hoping I love it. Sorry for the long delay, you went to my Spam 😦
