September Wrap Up

Books I Read This Month

This month was amazing because there were a bunch of new releases, most of which I had preordered online so I was constantly getting treats in the mail. One I’m still reading and another hasn’t arrived yet because it was just released the other day so I’m hoping it will arrive next week. Anyway, here are the six books I read this month, including the four new releases…

The first book I read in September was King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard. This is the third book in the Red Queen series, which I love. Glass Sword was kind of a let down to be honest. I didn’t hate it but it was pretty dull until the last hundred pages or so. But King’s Cage has put the series back on track. The fourth and final book in the series, War Storm, comes out in 2018 and I’m pumped for it after the ending of King’s Cage.

The second book I read was the first of the September releases and the one I was the most keen for: Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas. This is the sixth book in the Throne of Glass series which is one of my all-time favourite series’. This book was easily one of the best. It’s tied for second place on my personal ranking alongside Empire of Storms, second only to Queen of Shadows. Even though Aelin wasn’t in it, this book advances the overall plot of the series. It isn’t just some money grab- there are major revelations about the Valg and the Fae and huge character developments for Chaol.

The next book I read was Genuine Fraud by E. Lockhart. This is by the author of the very popular book We Were Liars. I wouldn’t say this book is better, but it’s definitely worth reading. It’s told in reverse order and you piece together more of this great mystery story about identity theft as you read it. I have a full spoiler-free review which you can check out here.

Next I read Warcross by Marie Lu. This book was so fun and exciting. It was about a virtual reality game called Warcross and a girl who hacks her way into the game and ends up becoming an undercover contestant on a mission to find someone who is messing around with the game. I loved this book so much and I did a full review on it if you want to know why which you can read here.

The next book I read was They Both Die In The End by Adam Silvera. It’s set in a world where everyone receives a phone call on the day they’re going to die, and follows the story of two teenagers who try to live their last day to the fullest. This was such a great book and I highly recommend it to young adult readers. But beware, as you can tell from the title, this book does not have a happy ending. You can read my full review here.

The last book I finished reading this month All Rights Reserved by Gregory Scott Katsoulis. I don’t know for sure how I feel about this one. One one hand, the plot is really cool. It’s set in a dystopian world where everything you say costs money. The main character decides to stop speaking, and inadvertently starts a revolution as others begin to follow. It’s really awesome, but on the other hand, there’s lot of legal and technical stuff that made the world confusing and distracted from the story. I’m going to write a review for this in the coming weeks once I’ve thought about it more.
