Hey all, Dani here.
Wow, I can’t believe that September is over already. I’ve had a weird couple of months. Both August and September saw me dropping the ball on getting up my regular blog posts, and I apologize for that. I’m going to try and get back to the minimum of one post each week, with bonus posts when I have book reviews I just have to share or if there’s another fun topic that pops up.
September for me was supposed to be about focusing on self-published and indie authors because I feel like we need to highlight them more, and I did manage to read a few indie novels. I’m hoping to have some reviews up on those books soon, but for now I’ll just do my usual quick overview of what I read in the month of September.
The King’s Imposter by C.A. McHugh 4.5 stars
The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee 4.5 stars
Empire of Storms by Sarah J Maas 5 stars
Sacred Light by Simone Pond 4 stars
Keeper of Knowledge by Keifer Duncan 3 stars
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon 4.5 stars
I don’t think six books is all that bad for a month of reading, especially when you consider that EoS was over 600 pages long, and so is Outlander.
Next up is my September Book Haul. Now, I had to break this down a bit because I had my standard monthly haul, and then I had my haul from Cincinnati Comic Expo. Also, I received a package yesterday from author Jenn Bennett, which included a complete set of her Arcadia Bell series. I won a giveaway she hosted on Twitter so that was exciting.
Okay, so the top left is my haul from Cincinnati Comic Expo, with the photo on the top right being the selection of metal bookmarks I picked up from Colorworld Books (where I worked the whole weekend). The bottom left is the rest of my September book haul, and on the bottom right is the contents of my giveaway prize package from Jenn Bennett.
Finally, I need to share my October TBR list. I’m trying to be a little bit conservative for this next month, but there are some recently releases and some upcoming releases that I really want to read so we’ll just have to see what happens.
Not included in this photo is Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo, Like a River Glorious by Rae Carson, and Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard: The Hammer of Thor by Rick Riordan. Oh…and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Illustrated Edition by J.K. Rowling.
October should be a good month. Happy Reading everyone!
