Hello everyone! Today we are going to wrap up my September reading. Ready? Here we go!
Apparently The Hunt is the only green book I was able to get through lol I do have a review for Jack of Thorns coming. At least I plan on doing a review for it and another book I was reading for review. The Doctor’s Wife is a thriller and I don’t know if that is why I couldn’t get into it or what but I just had no motivation to pick it up. The Kiss Of Deception was the same way. Just did not want to pick it up and finish it. I m working my way out of a slump so I’m not forcing myself to keep reading books I am struggling with. Plus it felt so gooood being back in the Shadowhunter world!
Hope everyone had a great reading month and here’s to even more great reading in October 💚
This is slightly late, but only by a couple days. I didn’t really read much in June since it was month two of my reading slump. However I did managed to read 3 novels, 3 graphic novels, and 1 ARC along with 2 DNFs. I also went a little wild and bought 15 books (three of them have been read). So let’s see what I did.
The Black Mage (ARC) by Daniel Barnes 4 stars
- Fence vol 1 by C. S. Pacat 5 stars
- Not Your Sidekick by C. B. Lee 4 stars
- The Backstagers vol 1 by James Tyrion IV 5 stars
- Some Girls Bite by Chloe Neill DNF
- Fence vol 2 by C. S. Pacat 5 stars
- Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz 4 stars
- Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff 5 stars
- Roseblood by A. G. Howard DNF
My two DNFs were both by authors I love which sucked but hey it happens. My favorite of the month was Illuminae, and I’m definitely continuing on.
Now on to this haul I spoke of. There is a store in a city near me called 2nd and Charles, which is a used bookstore. They also sell new releases, but I mostly go for the used books since I’m just getting back into reading and want to read past popular books. Plus they are cheap. I went there twice in the month of June. I also bought my first Book Outlet purchase, which was a total of nine books. ￼
The image won’t load for this one, but my first trip to 2nd and Charles resulted in me buying Illuminae and Carry On. I loved both of these.
These are from my second trip to 2nd and Charles. Aristotle and Dante has been read, currently reading Simon, and the other two will eventually be read lol
My Book Outlet order (minus Beautiful Creatures which I already owned and am currently reading). Dangerous to buy the whole series when I’m not even done reading the first book but hey I’m liking it a lot.
Well, that’s all everyone! I know July has barely started yet I already bought 3 books and I’m still waiting on my signed copies of two others to arrive. I will read all of these at some point lol have a great day everyone!
