September was an alright month for me with a total of 9 books read. I’m getting a little behind with both my reading and blogging, however (more than I’d like to be), but with everything that’s going on in my life at the moment, that wasn’t a big surprise.
Books Read This Month: 6
I’ve read quite a mix of different genres in September. Since the moment I’ve finished City of Ghosts, I wanted to read the sequel already and on September 5th, Tunnel of Bones was finally being released into the world of Middle Grade. I couldn’t be happier and I absolutely adored this one (maybe even more than the first book, if I’m being totally honest).
Stephen King is one of those authors I’ve been dying to read more off. I really took an effort this year in reading more of his novels and this is going pretty well so far. Somewhere around April, I’ve heard about The Institute being released and after reading the synopsis, I immediately pre-ordered the book and couldn’t wait to get my hands on this one!
Graphic Novels Read This Month: 3
Next to reading ‘regular’ novels, I also am making a conscious effort in picking up more graphic novels. There are so many of them out there and apart from the ones I’ve read as a child, I never really explored this genre. I’ve read 3 graphic novels this month, and apart from Stargazing, I actually really enjoyed them all!
To get myself a bit more into the Autumn spirit, I’ve decided to pick up Pumpkinheads by Rainbow Rowell. After reading Fangirl by her, I knew I wanted to read more of her work, so this was the perfect combination!
During my time abroad, I’ve discovered quite a few new to me authors who have written stories set in Ireland. Only yesterday, I found out that on September 19th, the 3rd book in the Oh My God, What A Complete Aisling series was released, so obviously, I had to pick this one up straight away! Now that I’m back home in the Netherlands (and probably won’t be going back to Ireland any time soon), it’s especially nice to read about this beautiful country and get the familiar flashbacks of Dublin and its surroundings. Next to that, this series is just an all feel good, chick-lit, which is something I adore every now and then!
I also started my reread (a re-listen actually) of Sadie by Courtney Summers. Sadie is about a missing girl on a journey of revenge. A Serial―like podcast following the clues she’s left behind. And an ending you won’t be able to stop talking about. I loved it the first time I listened to this book and I’m hoping my rating will stay the same this time around.
