Welcome to my September Wrap-Up. This month I managed to read 6 books, and I am quite happy with it since two of them were more than 600 pages long. This month I read only fantasy, result of me finishing grad school and having time to read for pleasure.
Highlights of this month’s reading were the fact that I finally read Tower of Dawn, by Sarah J Maas, and I am now ready for the release of Kingdom of Ash (I will be going to the release event here in Edinburgh and see Sarah talk, I cannot wait!), and the fact that I finally completed The Remnant Chronicles by reading The Beauty of Darkness by Mary E Pearson. I am also caught up on the Wayward Children series by Seanan McGuire. In a nutshell, September has been catch up on series month! Here are all the books I’ve read in chronological order.
- Beneath the Sugar Sky (Wayward Children #3), by Seanan McGuire. This series has been a surprise. The first book, for which I have a review here, did not impress me. However the second one (for which I have a review here) I loved. I gave this one 4/5 stars, and a review is to come soon!
- The Tropic of Serpents (The Memoirs of Lady Trent #2), by Marie Brennan. I am loving this series. I have three books left to read, and then I will definitely write a series review because I think it’s genius. If you are interested in the Victorian Era, you have to read this: it is satirical while extremely historically accurate, and featuring dragons. I gave it 4/5 stars.
- Binti (#1), by Nnedi Okorafor. I was not impressed by this novella. I listened to it on audio, and enjoyed it but it did not prompt me to pick up the second one. Maybe I will in the future. It was a 2.5 stars read for me.
- Tower of Dawn (Throne of Glass #6), by Sarah J Maas. I have to admit that, despite the various flaws of this book, I still deeply enjoyed it and gave it 3.5 stars. For a full review of my thoughts, click here.
- City of Ghosts, by Victoria Schwab. This is another one I have reviewed (here), and this is a middle grade story about ghosts set in Edinburgh. Unfortunately middle grade is not my cup of tea, however I still enjoyed the story.
- The Beauty of Darkness (The Remnant Chronicles #3), by Mary E Pearson. This one disappointed me a bit. Even though it was a quick read, I did not really like the end of it and was not impressed by the overall arc of the story. For a full review, click here.
These are all the books I read during the month of September. Please let me know if you have read any of these, and what you thought about them.
Until next time,
