Wrap-up: September 2016

October 1, 2016 Wrap-up 4

sept_booksThe end of September has arrived, so it’s time to look back on the month.

During this month, a lot of my time was taken up with packing and moving house, then unpacking again. I did, however, go to work during most of that time so there was still plenty of time for reading!

I still got through nine books, including two graphic novels. There were some bigger books in that pile, but the book that took me the longest to get through was Paper and Fire. Not sure why – it just didn’t grip me like the first book in that series did.

The Brisbane Writers Festival was on early in September and since I was moving I ddn’t get to spend as much time there as I would have liked. It was nice to catch up with bookish friends though, and meet (or meet again) some great authors.

You can listen to our recap of the festival, as well as enter to win a signed copy of Nevernight, in episode 47 of TTT Podcast. We also welcomed special guest Sarah of @commasandampersands to share her experiences in London seeing the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child plays!

Coming in October

There are so many great books coming out over the next week or so, my happy little bookish heart can barely take it! If anyone wants to give me a job where I can just drink tea and read all day, please speak up!

Happy reading for October, everyone!

    Here’s the bookish damage I did in September, not too shabby!

    -Make Me series (books 4-8) by Beth Kery
    -The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware (excellent audio book!)
    -A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir (a SUPER excellent audio book! Go team HELENE!)
    -Gemini by Mukherjee, Sonya (I typically don’t read contemporary YA fiction but this was surprisingly enjoyable!)
    -And I Darken by Kiersten White
    -Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo by Amy Schumer (narrated by the author, super funny and deep)
    -Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo (reread in anticipation of Crooked Kingdom)
    -Green But For a Season by C.S. Pacat (novella set in the Captive Prince series universe)
    -Half Bad by Sally Green (I have NO idea why I waited so long to pick this series up, super good! Amazing narration, love the audio books)
    -Half Lies & Half Truths by Sally Green (novellas in the Half Bad series)
    -Loving You Easy by Roni Loren (super lovely smut about a nerdy hacker girl that meets two guys who own a tech company and things ‘develop’ from there)
    -Waiting Waiting Waiting to start Crooked Kingdom.

    I feel like September was super crazy for book releases. October has quite a few too but it seems to slow down a bit for books that I actually want to read.

    Hope you make a cozy reading nook in your new place Ang!

      Wow, you DID have a busy month. There are a bunch of Aussie releases in October, I will get through them somehow xD I’m still working on the reading nook… got most of the books in shelves now but there are still boxes all over the place. This weekend I’m going to attack it all. Thanks for your comment Tracy <3
