Whoops, I did NOT read all the books I meant to read in September. Why? Well, Middlesex was way bigger than I thought it was, so I still have a little over a hundred pages left before I’m done (as of writing this, October 1st — I may actually be done now), and Wicked was just … so boring. I’ve read it before back in high school, and I vaguely remember being unimpressed, but I wanted to give it a second go before I donated the books and, well. Maybe not my smartest move. I’ll just have to read them in addition to my October TBR.
- Bloodrose by Andrea Cremer
- The Bone Houses by Emily Lloyd-Jones
- The Fountains of Silence by Ruta Sepetys
- Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane
- The Kingdom of Back by Marie Lu
- Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Okay, so, not TECHNICALLY any books from my 21 in 2021 list, but plenty of books I do already own (literally all of them), which is also a goal of mine to always do. Read books I own! Which I definitely do not do enough of, even though I keep buying books. Maybe this month I’ll follow that a little better.
Now, the reasoning! Well, aside from the fact I own them.
Bloodrose is the last book in the Nightshade trilogy, which I started reading last month and IS part of my 21 in 2021, so I figured I’d include it so I can knock that off. I’m in the middle of the second book, Wolfsbane, as I type this, otherwise I’d have included that one too. The Bone Houses and The Kingdom of Back are both Owlcrate books that I’ve had for a while now, and just seem appropriate for October to dive into, along with both Shutter Island and Peregrine’s Home. I’ve read Peregrine’s Home before, a looooong time ago, but it was the original trilogy. I would love to read the whole series since I remember really enjoying them, but I can’t quite remember enough to just dive straight into the new trilogy. So! Time for a reread!
Thanks for reading!
