September 2018 Wrap Up!

Hey guys! Today I am bringing you my September wrap up! I read seven books this month which is a decent amount but I am a bit disappointed with myself as I wanted to read more. I went on holiday for two weeks and read 5 books which I think is OK but I wanted to read six, oh well! Here’s what I read this month:

The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater: I finally read The Raven Cycle! I really liked it and it lived up to the hype but I wouldn’t say it’s a series I’m obsessed with. There was lots of surprises along the way and I loved the characters, especially Gansey. But there was some things I couldn’t wrap my head around because it felt like they literally came out of nowhere. Aside from that, I think this is the best series Maggie’s written and I’m looking forward to this trilogy she’s writing for Ronan. He was definitely the most interesting character and it feels right that he’s getting his own series.

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo: Another book I can finally say I’ve read! After having this book sitting on my shelf for a year or maybe more I forget and hearing nothing but good things about it, I can finally tick it off my list! This is another book that I enjoyed but I don’t feel like I loved as much as everyone else did. The characters were OK but not ones I really got attached to. The plot was good but I didn’t find it particularly exciting or thrilling. I’ve started Crooked Kingdom and plan on finishing it this month, hopefully it will make me love the characters more? We’ll see.

Half Moon Bay by Alice LaPlante: I really loved this book! It was such a fascinating read mainly because of the writing style. The main character is enveloped in grief after the tragic death of her daughter and she is unable to think coherently. Her thoughts jump from one thing to another so at times you have to piece the story together and I really loved that. The ending could have been better but for the most part, I really enjoyed it!

In Her Bones

In Her Bones by Kate Moretti: Honestly? I felt disappointed with this book. I was expecting it to be exciting but for the most part it was incredibly slow and quite boring at times. I was just skimming pages hoping something exciting would happen but it was just the same throughout. The main character is wanted for murder and she spends the majority of the book investigating as she attempts to clear her name. The writing was very good, just a shame the plot wasn’t.

So those are the books I read this month! Even though I wanted to read more, I am pleased I got The Raven Cycle and Six of Crows ticked off my list! What books did you read this month? Feel free to leave a comment below. I hope you enjoyed this post and thank you so much for reading!
