How is it already the end of September? This year has been flying by, and soon everyone will be singing Christmas carols (this is a bad thing because I can’t stand Christmas carols).
September ended up being one of my better reading and blogging months, which is great because I feel like I’m no longer bogged down by the unrealistic expectations I set for myself, and that I’m finally getting back into the swing of things. This month, I finished five books, and as of writing this, I hauled six books.
Love & Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch: I actually don’t remember if I finished this book at the end of August or the beginning of September, but I’m going to include it in this month’s wrap-up anyway. This was my second time reading Love & Gelato and I liked it, even more, the second time around. The characters are wonderful, the descriptions of Italy make me want to travel, and I love the story.
Albatross by Terry Fallis: Terry Fallis is one of my favourite authors, and this latest book did not disappoint. I loved the quirky premise, the main character’s passion for writing, and the humour in this book. If you’re interested in reading my full review of it, you can check it out here!
Toil & Trouble by Augusten Burroughs: Augusten Burroughs is another one of my favourite authors, and I was fortunate enough to receive an ARC of his latest memoir. This book is fantastic, and it’s about so much more than witchcraft. Augusten Burroughs’s is an amazing storyteller, and if you’re interested in reading my full review, you can check it out here!
Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows by Balli Kaur Jaswal: It took me a little while to get into this book, but once I did, I ended up falling in love with it. This book is super feminist and fun, and I’m so glad that my book club decided to pick it up. I’m hoping to write a review of it and to have it posted sometime in October.
Suggested Reading by Dave Connis: I picked up this book in honour of banned books week, and it is amazing. I picked it up on Friday night with the intention of only reading the first fifty or so pages, but I ended up reading half of it in one sitting because I couldn’t put it down. I know that I’m going to be recommending this book to everyone because censorship is something that everyone needs to talk about and work to prevent.
