Well, I surprised myself in September by reading more books than I thought I did! I can’t necessarily be mad at that considering lately, I’ve been a semi-reading slump and it feels so weird. But in terms of a book haul, I did fairly well. I’ve put myself on a rather strict ban due to ~adulting~. October may not be as kind as September though. 😅
Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas (reread) – ★★★ 1/2
Queen of Shadows by SJM (reread) – ★★★★ 1/2
The Assassin’s Blade by SJM (reread) – ★★★
Frostblood by Elly Blake – ★★★★
Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson – ★★★ 1/2
Warcross by Marie Lu – ★★★★★
Independent Study by Joelle Charbonneau – ★★★ 1/2
Monstress, Vol 1 & 2 by Marjorie Liu – ★★★★★
Monstress, Vol 1 & 2 were library books, hence why they’re not pictured! I actually returned them and then remembered I ought to have kept them because of the monthly book haul. Oops! 😛
Now onto the book haul…
All but Long May She Reign are September releases. And all of the releases are by some of my favorite authors. ❤ I’ve already read Warcross because I didn’t want the possibility of being spoiled when I saw Marie a few weeks ago. 😛 Needless to say, it was fantastic and I absolutely can’t wait for the sequel!
Since I finally finished reading all but Empire of Storms, I finally started Tower of Dawn. I’m about 200 pages in, and I love it so much already. While I like Aelin and her crew, I absolutely love Chaol and Nesryn. I also really liked Yrene, whom we met in The Assassin’s Blade, and since she’s a major character in the story as well, I love getting to know her more. I did finish up Invictus by Ryan Graudin. Unfortunately, I didn’t like it as much as I thought I would, but I still enjoyed it. The review for that will be up next week!
