September in Books

book recaps sept

September was a great month compared to August since I got complete five books and received some cool ARCs as well! Without further ado, let’s do our September wrap up.

Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
Rating: 4/5

It took me a month to finish reading this book mainly because it was too heavy for me (partially because university started again). I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to readers who want something refreshing as Strange the Dreamer features a lot of novelties compared to most YA fantasies!

Top Ten by Katie Cotugno
Rating: 2.5/5
ARC

Oh man, Top Ten was a mess of nonlinear confusion and toxic friendships. I expected a light and funny read but got a headache instead.

The Glass Spare by Lauren DeStefano
Rating: 4/5
ARC

The Glass Spare is a fantasy novel that puts a twist to the lethal touch that most of us know from the Shatter Me series! If you’re a big fan of that series, I highly suggest picking this one up.

Wild Beauty by Anna-Marie McLemore
Rating: 3/5
ARC

Alas, magic realism isn’t really my thing, but I am still fond of Wild Beauty! With its beautiful writing and unique plot, you just might develop a knack for magic realism.

Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo
Rating: 5/5

Holy hell holy hell holy hell holy hell holy hell please pick this one up. I loved every chapter. I hated Wonder Woman (2017) the movie but after reading this book I rewatched it and now I love it oh my god.

An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson
Rating: 4/5

Fae books are the new trend! If you’re a fan of A Court of Thorns and Roses series, this one’s for you. If you’re not a fan of the series, it still is for you! This standalone really delves into faerie folklore and makes it a wonderful masterpiece.

  1. I felt the same way about Wild Beauty. I wonder if magical realism is really the genre for me. I had a hard time connecting with it and grounding myself within the story. But at the same time it was just so beautiful! The writing, the setting, the flowers – it was all just so gorgeous!

  2. Good job on completing 5 books this month. That’s great. I still need to read Strange the Dreamer, and my copy of An Enchantment of Ravens just arrived in the mail. I’m glad you enjoyed The Glass Spare; I’ve been thinking of adding it to my TBR.
