hello bookoholics! it’s that time of month again – it’s wrap up time! by the time you read this, i will be in dublin, ireland, enjoying the rainy and windy weather and maybe one or two guinness’ 😀
september wasn’t the best month for me unfortunately. i’ve been struggling with some health issues and my workload was pretty high this month. i feel like i’ve been running all over the place but the one thing i couldn’t do was reading. somehow i still managed to read seven books. that’s ok, although i wish, that it would have been more. but sometimes life get’s in the way, right? i also wanted to participate in sequel september with my girl kathy over @books & munches. but well, let’s say, i managed one sequel hahaha 😀 let’s hope, that #OWNtober will be better.

1.) throne of glass
title: trone of glass
author: sarah j. maas
all in all “throne of glass” was very enjoyable. the writing was great, i absolutely had no problems following the story and also the change of the point of views was very well done! i enjoyed sarah j. maas’ writing and all my expectations were fulfilled. read my full review here
author: jennifer e. smith
i liked the idea of this book and also the writing was good. the only thing that annoyed me were the characters. i couldn’t connect with all of them and i had my problem with some decisions the main character made. it felt forced. but all in all, this was a fluffy contemporary. i just wanted more.

my goodreads review was like this: 😱😱😱😱😱😱😱
i loved this book. i loved everything about this book and i just can’t. i still can’t. my full spoilery review can be found here
4.) the gentleman’s guide to vice and virtue
title: the gentleman’s guide to vice and virtue
author: mackenzie lee
unfortunately i didn’t love this book as much as everybody else did. yes, i loved percy and felicity. i loved the adventure plot and i loved the topics this book dealt with. but i thought it would be way more funny and i also couldn’t connect with monty that much. i only gave this 4 stars, because the narration of the audiobook was so good. read my full review here
5.) the thousandth floor
title: the thousandth floor
author: katharine mcgee
this book really surprised me. it brought me back to my guilty pleasure “gossip girl” times and i really enjoyed all the drama. i was curious and i had to turn the pages, because i wanted to know what was going to happen. the setting was amazing and it had me thinking. this was a really great read. my full review can be found here
6.) ask the passengers
title: ask the passengers
author: a.s. king
this was my first audiobook from overdrive, after i went to the library the first time. and i am so happy, that i chose this book, because it was so good. it was honest and believable and i really could feel the main character’s feelings. the story is beautiful and i couldn’t stop listening to it. i am so glad how the plot unfolded and this book just made me happy in the end.
7.) words in deep blue
title: words in deep blue
author: cath crowley
it’s been a couple of days since i have read this book, but it is still on my mind. as i said in my spoilery review, this book broke me. it was heart breaking but heart warming at the same time. the characters were amazing, the plot was amazing. the writing was beautiful and all in all this is just one of my new favorites. i don’t know, but sometimes a book comes at the right time and hits you so hard and you don’t even know why.
that’s it guys. that was my wrap up for september. not the best one, but i am hopeful, that october will be a better reading month for me. i am feeling better and the cozy, snuggle times are back, so i will relax at home and spent time with my books – yay! 🙂
let me know how your september went! what was your favorite read?
