September Wrap Up and October TBR (frantic rereads and not much else)

Hello everyone! Happy October! October is my favourite month of the year, it feels most like autumn to me. Now, this wrap up may be a little late but so am I always. Gotta keep on brand.

This month was a little low on reads as you can see, but I blame that on circumstance. This whole month I’ve been incredibly busy, and as a result, I haven’t really been able to read quite so much. On top of that, the first three I read were actually all in 1 week, because I knew I wouldn’t have to read later so I powered my way through 3 books in a week. Suffice to say that was the last fun reading week I’m having for a while now. sigh. Anyhow, here’s the books:

  • One Of Us Is Lying : ⭐⭐⭐ This one was actually surprisingly good, even if it wasn’t the best thing I’ve ever read. I couldn’t really give it a higher rating, because I was really not that happy with it until later on in the book, and even then I was still a little hesitant about it. Maybe I’ve just gotten used to reading different types of books, but a mystery set in an American high school feels miles away from what I’ve been used to reading. In comparison, I read books set in a million different parts of the world about a million different people with a million different stories, so going back to the slightly generic American high school story wasn’t exactly my cup of tea. It took me back to when I first starting reading, and I was stuck in a whirlpool of American stories. I would consider it 2000s YA, which to my mind has become a genre on it’s own. Still, in all fairness, the mystery was pretty good, and I have to give kudos because this was the first mystery I properly guessed, so yay for me
  • A Woman Is No Man (reread) : ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Still an absolute favourite, still absolutely stunning
  • The Wrath and The Dawn (reread) : 😑 I can’t really rate this one, because it was a reread I really didn’t enjoy, but I do appreciate that I enjoyed it the first time I read it, so I’m just giving it that face for now. I decided to reread it because I couldn’t for the life of me remember what happened it in, and now I wish I could go back to that time. Haha, no I’m being mean, but really. I just hated it this time
  • How It All Blew Up : ⭐⭐⭐ This book was just decent. Not particularly memorable, not particularly brilliant, just decent. I never really enjoy the constant use of phrases like lol in a book, and that’s no different for this one. This book now remains just another book I’ve read and will probably forget about in light of all other books
  • The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo : ⭐⭐⭐⭐ This one, however was brilliant! It’s the sort of book that could change your life if you let it. It’s so good, and Evelyn is the queen.

I haven’t really put that many books on my tbr this month, just because I know I’m going to be really busy, so here it is:

  • The Atlas Six
  • Other Words For Home
  • Love From A to Z
  • Ace of Spades

I also had a post out where I ask you all for book recs I’m going to read for a future post, so if you would like, feel free to go check it out.

Here is the list of books I’m thinking of reading, although if you have some more recs I would love to hear them 🙂

  • All The Bright Places
  • Love From A to Z
  • The Places I’ve Cried In Public
  • Ace of Spades
  • The Atlas Six
  • Other Words For Home
  • Eliza and Her Monsters
  • The Traitor’s Game
  • Anne of Green Gables
  • This Lullaby
  • Keeper of the Lost Cities (book 1 only for now)
  • Lockwood and Co (book 1 only for now)
  • Throne of Glass (book 1 only for now)

I’ve tried to include all the books you guys recommended, the only reason I wouldn’t have would be because I’m not particularly interested in the plot, or I can’t get a copy of the book. Thank you all so much for the book recs, I really appreciate everyone hopping in and telling me their favourites. That is all from me for now, thank you all for reading, hope you have a good October!
