September Wrap Up

september-wrap-up-2016

Hey guys! I can’t believe another month has ended already. This year just seems to be flying by! Unfortunately, I didn’t end up reading that many books this month again. I finished 2 books and read 45 pages of another for a total of 943 pages. My lack of reading this month was because I was getting ready to move on September 26th so I was very, very busy! I actually didn’t read at all for the second half of the month. Hopefully after I get settled in my new house, I can get lots of reading done!


Books Read in September

To kick off the month, I started by rereading An Ember in the Ashes because I had recently gotten the sequel and wanted a refresher before diving into that one! I enjoyed Ember just as much as I did the first time. It was a really solid start to the series. Next, I continued on with A Torch Against the Night and while I really enjoyed it, I didn’t quite love it as much as the first book. For more of my thoughts about Torch, check out my review (linked above).

Book I Put On Hold

Three Dark Crowns

Two days after finishing A Torch Against the Night, I put up a poll on my Twitter asking which book I should read next. Included in the poll were: The ReaderEver the HuntedSix of Crows (which would have been a reread), and Three Dark CrownsThree Dark Crowns won by quite a bit so I immediately dove in. I read 45 pages but I wasn’t really getting invested in the story yet. I decided to put it on hold for the time being. I definitely plan on giving it another try in the future!

One thought on “September Wrap Up

  1. Reg @ She Latitude says:

    Glad to hear that you’ve enjoyed both Ember and Torch! I love that series, but my reaction is the same pretty much – Ember was the better book. And I’m sorry to hear that TDC didn’t engage you enough to keep you going! I read that book too and while I finished it in like two days, it definitely wasn’t the book I was expecting, so I understand why you’d put it on hold for a bit. Hope you get to pick it up and enjoy it better next time. 💕
