September Wrap-Up

So after a crazy, crazy summer, I finally got a bit more reading time this month and I read eight books in September! October ramps up for me again, as I’m in not one, not two, but three separate performances in October and will be full to the brim with rehearsals on top of work, but this is a story you’ve heard before if you’ve visited my blog with any regularity! XD

Anyway, without any more preamble, here are the books I read in September!

Mrs. Everything

A story of two sisters and their different paths through life, Mrs. Everything didn’t quite live up to my expectations. I’d heard excellent things, but it just really fell flat for me. (Note: this is a polite version of my review linked above…see the full post for details.)

The Guernsey Literary and Potato-Peel Pie Society

I really enjoyed this one! More than I thought I would, actually. Guernsey features a really strong and uninhibited female protagonist, which we *love*! As before, my full thoughts are above.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Always a classic for fall, I continued my Harry Potter re-read this month!

The World According to Mr. Rogers

I felt a little silly reading a quote book from beginning to end, but everything that was worked into this book was so inspiring and comforting that I found myself just turning pages and absorbing and then suddenly I’d finished it! I really loved this.

The Turn of the Key

This was a great modernization of The Turn of the Screw and I especially appreciated how Ware really integrates modern technology into such a timeless story.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince

Before We Were Yours

I mostly really enjoyed this one, though the end did drag for me a bit. Again, full thoughts above!

Leave a comment below with what you read this month, or if you’ve read and enjoyed any of these as well, and thanks for stopping by!

Xx.
