September Wrap-Up

Well, here we are in October my favorite month of the year! That means September is over and the crisp air and falling leaves can start....any time now! Please!!! Ahem. Anyway. September started out on a crazy trip to Oregon to furnish our vacation home, to fancying up the exterior of one of our duplexes to, well, nothing. Things seemed to have calmed down and I'm loving it! More time for reading, binge watching shows and enjoying the cooler weather....anytime now, Fall.

 I read 8 books this past month. 2 print books 3 ebooks and 3 audiobooks. Fairly balanced I'd say.

The Girl From The Well
A creepy read about a murdered girl who seeks revenge until she meets a boy with an even more creepy ghost attached to him.

Shadow and Bone (Grisha Verse 1)
All the regular ingredients to a fantasy but tasted delicious.

A Simple Favor
Stupid, pointless story with deplorable characters.

The Woman in Cabin 10
A likable character in a psychological thriller? I know! I'm shocked too!

The Orphan Keeper
Intriguing page turner about a kidnapped child and his journey home.

Before We Were Yours
Surprising with twists and turns through past and present.

Big Mushy Happy Lump
Get ready to laugh for the few minutes it will take to read this delightful book.

Siege and Storm (Grisha Verse 2)
Slower middle but still so yummy! (review to come)

And there you have it. Big Mushy Lump gets 5 stars because there's nothing to dislike and I'll definitely be reading it again but The Grisha books,The Woman in Cabin 10 and Before We Were Yours were all great books too.  Besides A Simple Favor, which was just awful, I had a pretty good reading month.


  1. That looks like a great reading month! I am glad things have settled down for you. Fall has definitely arrived here, very suddenly! We went from mid 80s and sunny to 60s and rainy overnight. But I am ready for October and the real fall to begin!

    1. It’s a little cooler here but still too hot for my liking.

  2. Hope October is an even better reading month for you! :)

  3. Sounds like you had a pretty good reading month. My daughter is always trying to get me to read the Grisha books. In fact, she was mad that I read the SoC duology without reading them.

    1. I'll be reading the SoC books soon. I'm really liking the Grisha series.

  4. I love October- my fave month of the year!

  5. Love the beautiful colours of fall. And I hope October is equally a good reading month for you.

  6. It is always so good to have a lot of books you really enjoyed. It seems September was a good month for you, I hope you will have a great October as well!

    Kind regards,

  7. Nice reading month! I love October too!

  8. Only one stinker out of eight is pretty darn good, I'd say. Glad it was a good reading month for you!
