Sunday Sum-Up/ September Wrap Up

Another One Bites the Dust!

 

Farewell September. We bid you adieu.

October has officially arrived, bringing gray skies, pumpkin flavored beverages, and an endless supply of B-rated horror flicks. What more can a gal ask for?  Personally, my little heart nearly bursts with joy at the thought of spending countless hours watching campy films and sleeping with the light on! With that said, it is time for a September wrap up.

September Reads & Ratings
(Click for Review)

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

Keep Her by Leora Krygier

Gilt Hollow by Lorie Langdon

Apothecary’s Curse by Barbara Barnett

The Vegetarian by Han Kang

Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake

Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ 1/2

In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware

The Invoice by Jonas Karlsson

⭐ ⭐

No Place Like Oz by Danielle Paige

Spotlight reads for me were Keep Her, Three Dark Crowns and Gilt Hollow. Surprisingly these are all part of the”Fall Favorite Things Blog Tour” I joined. It goes without saying where the biggest disappointment lies. While I may not have completed as many titles as I would have liked, having the ability to rate 6 out of the 9 reads 4 ⭐ is a pretty successful month as far as I am concerned. So no complaints 🙂

No rest for the Wicked 
By Dane Cobain
Pages: 124
Genre: Horror/Novella

Goodreads Blurb:

When the Angels attack, there’s NO REST FOR THE WICKED.

“Father Montgomery, an elderly priest with a secret past, begins to investigate after his parishioners come under attack. With the help of Jones, a young businessman with an estranged child, Montgomery begins to track down the origin of the Angels.

The Angels are naked and androgynous. They speak in a dreadful harmony with no clear leader. These aren’t biblical cherubs tasked with the protection of the righteous – these are deadly creatures of light that have the power to completely eradicate.

When Jones himself is attacked, Father Montgomery knows he has to act fast. Will the final showdown force him to make the ultimate sacrifice?”


I am also continuing with Summerlong by Peter S. Beagle, but honestly starting to really struggle. I am currently browsing through my shelves to determine which “spooky” reads I can squeeze in to celebrate the month 😉  Decisions to come soon. I look forward to seeing the various October TBRs. I know there will be some fun ones!

Cheers!

Danielle ❤

  1. Six four stars out of nine is fabulous. Plus, No Place Like Oz was a shory read. October is my favorite month. I love watching campy movies, too. This is the first year I have done a Halloween themed tbr. Last year I listened to an audiobook of Dracula and that was as far as my scary reading went (even though it wasn’t really scary, ha ha). I will be looking forward to your list. Have a wonderful week. 🙂

  2. Hells yeah!! Is there a book blogger out there who’s favourite month isn’t October I wonder? 😀 Praise for the dancing Michael Myers gif <3. And you did really, REALLY well this month despite all the struggles! I'm scared I won't get to enough spooky reads this month as well, but maybe that counts as well ;). Waking up with nightmares about not being able to read enough of them!

  3. I also read a ton of books in September. I didn’t realize you had just read Throne of Glass. And here I thought I was the only person who held onto that book for years before reading. 🙂 Three Dark Crowns is on my October TBR. It’s not horror, but I thought it would be a good addition to my creepy month. It has that darkness vibe and the cover is awesome. I still need to write my October TBR post. I’m so behind with my move.
