Its September Wrap up time! Well this will be short and sweet because I’ve only managed to read about 5 books this month. Let’s get to it
First book I finished was The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah (Physical, Historical Fiction, 5 stars) WOW this book. I almost didn’t write a review for this because it impacted me so much. I’m so happy I finally read it, since it’s been haunting me for a while now and for a good reason. I can safely say that it was one of the best book I’ve ever read and I’ll never forget it.
Next was a DNF Bad Reputation by Nicole Edwards (ARC, sports romance, eBook, DNF) this book was so bad. I don’t recommend anyone pick it up…well if you want to waste your time then go for it.
The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss (Physical, Fantasy, 5 stars) Yea this was also one of the best books I’ve ever read like ever. Now that I say that I realize September was really good reading month for me I find top favorites. This is a landmark of fantasy writing, a literal work of art. I highly recommend this read no matter what you like to read you’ll love this. Its atmospheric, lyrical, intense, magical and heart wrenching. Pick this up. I didn’t write a review for this book because I simply couldn’t the more a book impacts me the less I am able to articulate what it meant for me; which isn’t a good habit since I’m a book blogger but there you go.
The Shadowhunters by Cassandra Clare (physical, YA fantasy, 3 stars) this was quite enjoyable! Yes, it was repetitive but it is a ‘textbook’ for new shadowhunters. I loved learning about the shadowhunter things I didn’t know about. This is a great supplement for die hard SH fans. It’s a beautiful book which has notes from the characters in the margins and the most beautiful end papers I’ve ever seen.
Deathless by Catheryne M Valente (Physical, retelling, 4.5 stars) another all time favorite book that I’ll never forget. This is a retelling of a Russian folk tale but its also a fantasy, historical fiction, a romance its just everything. With the most lyrical prose I’ve ever read. This is a singular book and you should read it if you want something new and fresh and unlike anything. PS. Its aesthetic goals and so atmospheric.
The Scot Beds His Wife by Kerrigan Byrne (ARC, ebook, historical romance 4.5 stars) wow what a lovely surprise this book was! This book releases today and its one of my fav HR of the year!!!! I don’t say that lightly. Kerrigan Byrne’s new release can’t be missed.
That’s all for my wrap up! Make sure to check out the reviews for most of these books to read more of my thoughts. Happy Reading!
