September Wrap Up | 2017

Hey guys, today I’m coming at you with my September reading wrap up!

This month I didn’t really read much because I was on holiday, but I am still pretty impressed with the books that I did read. I managed to read 3 e-arcs which will have reviews coming out soon, and I also read a bunch of other books which I absolutely adored!

The Sandcastle Empire

Read 01/09/2017Β β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜†β˜† 3.5/5

It feels like I haven’t read a Dystopia in a while, and a good one at that, so this was a nice change. That being said, I felt the romance was sort of unnecessary and the plot twists were kind of obvious.

A Storm of Swords (part 2)

Read 03/09/2017Β β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜†β˜†

This is definitely my favourite book of the series so far, I only have the next book on my shelves, but if the rest of the books are on this level I think I will continue with the series.

Born A Crime:Β Stories From a South African Childhood

Read 18/09/2017Β β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

I loved this. This was definitely a shock to the system, it certainly puts my privilege in perspective, I may have a shitty situation in general, but it is nowhere what he had to deal with.

If There’s No Tomorrow

Read 19/09/2017Β β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜†β˜†

I thought grief was handled really well in this book, and I enjoyed that the douchebag wasn’t a controlling douchebag, but apart from that, this doesn’t have much else going for it.

I LOVED THIS. I really didn’t know what I was diving into with this but I am so happy I read it. I will definitely be reading book two soon or for the Spookathon.

WOW, I really thought I was going to love this book but boy was I wrong. From page one I knew that this book and I were not going to get along. I completely abhorred basically everything about this and I am so mad about it.

    1. I hate it when that happens, but damn, this was a bad book for me. So many other people loved it but it really just wasn’t for me. I hope you enjoy it more than I did if you intend on reading it!
