Admittedly, i’ve had a really bad reading month in September. I’ve also had a really bad blogging month. A lot has been going on from friends staying, concerts, settling in to jobs and being ill (a lot) i’ve had next to no time to do anything, and the last thing i wanted to do was sit down and read. It didn’t help that i ended up reading a book that quite frankly i found to be crap. It put me in a little bit of a slump, so not much else was read. After a few exciting book shopping trips, i’ve now got some books that i’m really excited to be getting around to! Lets hope October is a much better month. For now, here’s what i read in September.
The first book that I picked up in September was Highly Illogical Behaviour by John Corey Whaley. I’ve been meaning to pick this up for such a long time now (I was very jealous of people getting ARC copies), and I finally did it! The story is about Solomon, a young boy who is trapped in his house by Agoraphobia. I’ve been reading a lot of books recently in the Ya genre about people who cannot leave their homes for one reason or another, this was a great addition to the collection I’m creating! I really loved this easy read and it was my first John Corey Whaley novel!
I then had a dip in reading because I’m an idiot and hit my head at work. To try and pick myself back up I started to read The Next Together by Lauren James. I’ve been excited about this novel from Christmas when I received it as a gift. I hadn’t heard anything about it but expected a lovely, fluffy contemporary from what the cover offered. I was very wrong. I didn’t overly enjoy this novel, my fully review will be up of it soon to explain my full thoughts. It was nothing like I really expected it to be.
The last book that I picked up in September was Homecoming (The 100) by Kass Morgan. I thought this was the end of the series before I found out that there is a mother addition due to be released in December. It made me VERY EXCITED. I adore this series, I’ve not felt this way about a collection of books since I read The Hunger Games years ago. They’re so fun and such an easy read, with plenty of action packed in to them. The third novel follows Bellamy, Wells, Clarke and Glass as they arrive on earth and try to survive. It was great to see some more character interaction in this novel and everyone actually get on. I cannot praise Kass Morgans writing enough.
I’ve just started Attachments by Rainbow Rowell, so look out for that in my October wrap-up!
I really do hope that next month is a better reading month for me. There are so many books that I’m excited for being released so hopefully I get the chance to read them! Although I have little hope I won’t be busy.
