Let’s pretend that we aren’t now 10 days into the month and dive into my September wrap up!
This year is seriously going too fast. How are we already in October? The last few months have absolutely flown by and I won’t lie, I am kind of panicking about how many books I want to read before the end of the year.
Last month I read 14 books and am so happy about that! I’ve been on a huge romance kick lately and honestly, I’m not mad about it. This month I’ve also dabbled in fantasy and a graphic novel, as well as picking up a book that was very overdue. Let’s dig in. I’ll try not to ramble too much!
Here is my September wrap up!
First I continued with a fantasy series I started from Kindle Unlimited and read the second book, A Twist of the Blade. It was a little bit slower than the first book and there were parts I wasn’t as invested in, but I enjoyed the romance element (duh!) and I appreciated the mental health rep and diverse cast.
I then continued with the sports romance series I’ve been devouring and read the last two books, before moving onto another Meghan Quinn romance The Highland Fling. I didn’t love it as much as I have her other books but it was fun and steamy!
Though I don’t read many graphic novels, I picked up Paper Girls when I was in London a few weeks ago for the train journey home after recognising it as something Lauren had read. It was a quick and fun read but not sure whether I’ll continue with the series.
We all know how much I love Olivia Dade, so when I was approved for an e-arc of her next romance All the Feels I was buzzing. I absolutely loved it, and will be posting a full review soon! I’d seen A Nordic King recommended a few times now, and as KU is my best friend I couldn’t resist. It was a fab age gap royal romance and I would definitely read more by this author.
Oh hello another Meghan Quinn romance, fancy seeing you here. Kiss and Don’t Tell is her latest sports romance and I didn’t love it as much as her previous series but I am excited to read about the other characters.
I FINALLY read Rule of Wolves last month. I just love the audiobook narrators so much and I had such a good time listening to this. There was a lot going on in this book but it was so good to be back in the Grishaverse with some of my favourite characters.
The Off Campus series by Elle Kennedy is one of my all time favourites, so I was very eagerly awaiting the release of The Legacy, a sort of companion novel to show us “where they are now.” I really enjoyed this as a little added bonus to the original books and it was so good to spend time with my faves again.
I’m obviously a fan of steamy sports romances, okay? The Waylon University series by Ilsa Madden-Mills isn’t up there at the top of my list, but the books were enjoyable enough. I also picked up The Revenge Pact by the same author. I can devour books quite quickly under certain circumstances, so I’ve been breezing through these romances. They aren’t the best I’ve ever read, but enough to keep me invested.
And there we have my September wrap up. I’m currently on book 95 of the year so I’m hoping I can hit 100 in October?! Not that numbers matter as long as you’re doing what you enjoy, but I do like to try and beat myself every year, annoyingly.
