September Reading Recap

This month I've tried to make up for lost time that all the big summer books took up. I did pretty well, though I was hoping for even a few more. Now Goodreads says I'm only, like, 11 books behind in my 100 book goal! Is there hope? 

Anyway, here's what I read this month:

The Underdog by Markus Zusak: We are introduced to the brother duo of Cameron and Ruben Wolfe and their family, along with all their various issues and problems.

Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz: We learn what cool talent Odd has and how he uses it to try and prevent a huge tragedy from happening.

Divergent by Veronica Roth: In a future world people are divided into groups according to their personalities, unless they are Divergent of course, which can cause all sorts of wacky problems!

The Soldier's Wife by Margaret Leroy: This is what can happen if you fall in love with the German soldiers who come and occupy your peaceful island.

 Kiss Me Kill Me by Lauren Henderson: How can it be that Dan fell down dead after a kiss with Scarlet? What ever could have happened?

The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson: Lennie tries to cope with her sister's death by hanging with her sister's boyfriend, and then falling in love with the new guy in band... at the same time.

 Everneath by Brodi Ashton: After coming back from the Everneath, Nikki has six months to make things right with her boyfriend Jack and her family, as long as Cole doesn't get in her way.

 All These Things I've Done by Gabrielle Zevin: Anya lives in a future New York with her mafia entrenched family and she has the responsibility of keeping her sister and brother alive and happy.

 Ella Minnow Pea by Mark Dunn: What happens when a small island decides to start banning letters as they fall, one by one, off their city's monument celebrating the famous sentence "the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog."

 Can You Survive? Jack London's The Call of the Wild adapted Ryan Jacobson: A choose your own path story full of lots of adventure and some crazy hard decisions to make.

 Underdogs by Markus Zusak: Parts 2 and 3 of this book which includes Fighting Ruben Wolfe and Getting the Girl ... more adventures of the brothers Cameron and Ruben Wolfe.

Favorites of the month include: Everneath, Underdogs, The Sky is Everywhere and The Soldier's Wife.

Plans for October:

  • Successfully complete the Under the Dome read along.
  • Buddy read for Interview with a Vampire.
  • Finally get to Supernaturally... maybe?
  • Read Red Glove and Tattoo so Jenny can have them back.
  • Maybe read something from this, my "new books of the week" stack:
These books include an Amazon purchase (bottom two),
book fair purchases (next six on the stack)
random books in the mail (three more)
and two I got at the author signing (top two.)
And so, how was your reading month?


  1. You're doing a lot better than I am. I still have about 30 books to read to make it to my goal of 100!!

  2. I enjoy your short little comments on each book! Ella Minnow Pea and The Soldier's Wife are both waiting for me on my shelves. So much to choose from for next month!

    September was a good reading month for me. I was traveling in August and didn't get many books read, so September felt great reading-wise!

  3. Hee hee. I liked your comment on Kiss Me Kill Me.

  4. September was not my best reading month number-wise, but I read several of the books that will make my best of list at the end of the year. I suppose it evens out! It has made it really hard for me read lately, though...

    I am looking forward to reading Interview with a Vampire with you!

  5. You had a great reading month in September.I think you can definitely reach your goal.

  6. Any idea whaen you'll be reading the next wheel of time book?
