September Reading Recap


It's been a fun reading month for me.... many wonderful books that I've loved!

The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen: A group of boys are taken and taught to impersonate the prince. Which one will "win?"

Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver: The story of Lena and her new life in the wilds.

The Running Dream by Wendelin Van Draanan: A runner gets in a car accident and loses her foot, and  how she deals with her new life.

The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters: A doctor in post war England is fascinated with an old house and its occupants.

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness: A young boy is dealing with his mother's illness.

The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood: An account of one woman's experience in a society where woman all have a very specific role to fill.

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater: A group of prep school friends are trying to find a long lost king.

Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson: Marianne runs into a dashing dude while on her way to visit Edenbrooke for the summer.

I don't think there was one downer for me, and how to pick a favorite? I loved The Raven Boys, Edenbrooke and Pandemonium, with all the rest in second place I suppose. 

Plans for October:

  • finish Robin Hood! (for real this time)
  • finish Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children
  • finish Slaughterhouse Five
  • hopefully finish The Worst Hard Times
  • read The Bone Collector for book club
  • read UnWholly
  • read Feedback
  • read some library books, whatever moves me
  • read some Kindle books, whatever moves me!

  1. So, I have a question for you. Are you going to review the ones without a link? Or, are they some of the books you don't read?

  2. You read quite a lot! I did a little better this month but still not that great. Sigh! I love that you've been trying to finish Robin Hood for so long. :)

  3. I LOVED The False Prince. My hubby enjoyed it too. I was disappointed with Pandemonium. I felt like the whole book was to set up a love triangle! GRRR!!
