I‘m a couple days late on my wrap-up but I’m really trying to get better at this whole blogging thing! September was kind of a slower reading month for me, with only 4 books read (and one audiobook). BUT I rated all of the books pretty highly and got some new favorites. Did you guys meet your reading goal last month?
Dark Places – Gillian Flynn ★★★★
It took me a little while to get into this book but once I did, I was pretty hooked. I’m a big fan of Gillian Flynn’s writing and was excited for the big reveal at the end (what she’s famous for) and it didn’t disappoint! I had some suspicions that turned out to be right, but I was still pretty surprised by the end which is exactly what I was hoping for. However, out of the three Flynn books I’ve read, I’d say this one is probably my least favorite.
Tunnel of Bones – Victoria Schwab ★★★★★
I have a review of this book up on my blog, go check it out! It’s a great series that is perfect for the fall / halloween season. I also just love Ms. Schwab.
In a Dark, Dark Wood – Ruth Ware ★★★
Ruth Ware is hit or miss for me, I either really enjoy her book or it kinda just falls flat. I think this one is more of a miss for me. This book is so hyped that my expectations were really high, too high. I think this is a decent story but based on what I was expecting, it really fell short. I might do a full review on my blog, but it will sound pretty similar to my post, “How To: Ruin a Good Thriller”.
Daisy Jones & The Six – Taylor Jenkins Reid ★★★★★
Okay WOW. I loved pretty much everything about this book. The characters, the story, the plot, the format, the concept, ev-er-y-thing. I’m not sure if I like this book or The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo more, I mean how do you choose? They are both two of my favorite books in 2019, that I know for sure. I can’t wait until the TV series comes out!
The Greatest Love Story Ever Told – Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman (Audiobook) ★★★★
I am a huge Parks and Rec fan, therefore I am a huge Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally fan. They are pretty great people as it is, then you add their combined sense of humor and BAM you’ve got yourself a pretty entertaining book. I personally really like listening to memoirs/nonfiction on audiobook instead of reading them, especially when they are read aloud by the author(s). Listening to this also made work go by faster so that’s a plus. I really enjoyed this one.
