September 2016 Wrap-Up

Fall weather is finally here, and that means cuddling books in bed! Which I did a lot of this month. I got a decent amount of ARCs read, and surprisingly I didn’t listen to too many audiobooks. I still have unused credits on both Scribd and Audible… and that’s never happened to me. Probably because Empire Of Storms is a 25+ hour audiobook and I just finished before drafting this wrap-up. Also, this month I finally jumped onto the Hamilton train and I’m not jamming to that when I would usually be listening to an audiobook. The struggle.

So what did I read in September? Audiobooks:

Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum (5 Stars)
Empire Of Storms by Sarah J. Maas (5 Stars)

Tell Me Three Things was adorable and I really enjoyed it, but Empire Of Storms wins as fave audio of the month. I’ve listened to all of the TOG series on audio so I’m pretty invested in listening to this series vs. reading it, though I do own the physical copies as well. I continue to be so lost through this series, like how I am when I watch Game Of Thrones, but I can’t help loving it. High fantasy really isn’t my thing, but when I find a series I enjoy I do my best to grasp what’s happening.

Comics:

Saga Vol. 5 Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples (5 stars)

This was the only comic I read this month, my library doesn’t have Saga Vol. 6 yet 😥 But I loved this volume, and I think it’s my favorite one so far!

Novels:

Kids Of Appetite by David Arnold (5 Stars)One Was Lost by Natalie D. Richards (3 Stars)Under Ground by Alice Rachel (5 Stars – re-read)The Lovely Reckless by Kami Garcia (4 Stars)Last Seen Leaving by Caleb Roehrig (5 Stars)The Upside Of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli (5 (million) Stars)

All of these books I read as ARCs, aside from Under Ground by my good friend Alice Rachel, which was a re-read. One Was Lost was the least entertaining, though it was still a delightfully creepy book, just not what I was hoping it was. If I didn’t read Becky Albertalli’s new amazing book this month, then it would’ve been hard to pick between Kids Of Appetite and Last Seen Leaving as my faves for the month. But Upside wins because it’s just one of those books that when you read it you can’t help but feel like this book was written just for you.

I read a lot of great things this month, but in November I’m really going to try to read more books off my shelf rather than ARCs. I’m so behind and my shelves are crying.

What did you read in September?
