Oh September of 2018- what a great month you were to me 🙂 I managed to fulfil all my reading goals and read so many beautiful books. I am constantly in awe of all the young writers and their talent to write such brilliant books and create such beautiful worlds and stories. These books helped me learn and escape some of the dullness of the current world. A big thanks to all the authors, who made September really special for me. So, here is a list of all the books I read this month with a short personal feedback and a link to my review posts (if I wrote one for them :))
<The books are listed in the order I read them in>
21 Lessons for the 21st Century by Yuval Noah Harari (ebook via Netgalley)
Yuval Noah Harari has become my favourite non fiction author lately, so as expected, I really enjoyed this book too. You can read my longish review here.
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline (Paperback)
YA Sci-fi, absolutely loved it! Need to watch the movie now. You can read my detailed review here. Great for fans of science fiction, gamers, dystopian settings, and awesome female characters 👩🏻
I’d Rather Be Reading: The Delights and Dilemmas of the Reading Life by Anne Bogel (Hardback)
This was a birthday present to myself and absolutely adorable. It is again a collection of essays about readers and reading life. Great for a coffee table read or a bedside read. I finished it in an afternoon though..lol! 😀
City of Ghosts (Cassidy Blake series #1) by V.E. Schwab (Paperback)
My first Victoria Schwab book! A fellow book blogger recommended this to me (thanks Lily @Sprinkleofdreams :)) This was a perfect introduction to fall- spooky and cute enough. Looking forward to reading some more VE Schwab books this year.
Children of Blood and Bone (Orisha legacy #1) by Tomi Adeyemi (Paperback)
Another YA fantasy and part one of a series that I really enjoyed. I liked it because of the characters and sibling relationships and the details the author put in about the Orishan and maji world. My recent review on this is here if you want to check it out.
It’s Not Like It’s a Secret by Misa Sugiura (Audible audiobook)
I am the world’s slowest audiobook reader 🙄 But, I did manage to finally finish this book- another contemporary YA about LGBTQ, racism, battling stereotypes, Japanese, American and Mexican cultures, high school- you get the gist. I enjoyed it though and learnt a lot about ‘Gaman’ (Japanese for endurance)
Mystery of Three Quarters by Sophie Hannah (Library Hardback)
I finished this last night! Woo hoo! I’m not going to write a detailed review on this, because Duh- Hercule Poirot! That’s all I needed to know, before picking this book up. No wonder if was in the Library’s Hot Picks section!
Have you guys read any of these books? I would love to receive some recommendations to firm up my October reading, but I have narrowed my October TBR to a few books already 🙂 I’d love to read everyone else’s September wrap up too!
