I had a fairly good reading month, not as great as August though – which is probably due to my daughter sleeping a lot less and being a lot more active. I am still making my way though my ARC-backlist in the hopes of some day maybe catching up (one can dream).
Books I read in September:
- In The Dream House by Carmen Maria Machado: 5 out of 5 stars
- You Will Never Be Forgotten by Mary South: 2 out of 5 stars (review)
- Crooked Hallelujah by Kelli Jo Ford: 3.5 out of 5 stars
- Magic Mourns (Kate Daniels #3.5) by Ilona Andrews: 3 out of 5 stars
- Machine by Susan Steinberg: 4 out of 5 stars (review)
- Pain Studies by Lisa Olstein: 3.5 out of 5 stars
- The Cool Aunt (Hidden Legacy #5.1) by Ilona Andrews
Favourite of the Month:
In The Dream House by Carmen Maria Machado was every bit as brilliant as I expected it to be. I haven’t written a review yet because I want to pair the review with one for No Visible Bruises, a non fiction book about domestic violence that I am currently reading. That one, however, has the tiniest font and I can only read it during the day time hours (I feel old).
I read 7(ish) books this month. Of these books, five were written by women and two were written by a husband and wife team. I read two non fiction books, two literary fiction novels, one short story collection, and two Urban Fantasy books.
I am, again, reading too many books at once. Four really is my sweet spot, everything more messes with my reading mojo. I am hoping to finish a few of these books over the next week or so (both the Schwab and the Alam are published in early October and I would love to have my reviews up before that – this is probably too ambitious).
