September Confessions

I'm still on a blogging hiatus, but I thought I would touch base with everyone regarding the books I read in September. I didn't read nearly as many as I would have liked; in fact, I am behind on my Goodreads goal (the horror!!), but I think that is because of all the craziness that has been going on this fall.  I am hoping to read more once things settle down!  

Anyway, I have been loving this weather and trying to go outside as much as I can everyday, because before we know it, winter will be here.  I think I have had at least five pumpkin spice lattes already (they are my obsession) and I have made one pumpkin dessert.  I can't wait to make some more once I move and get my new kitchen organized.  

Books Read in September:
1.  The Sweetest Dark by Shana Abe - 4 out of 5 stars
2.  Endless (Embrace #4) by Jessica Shirvington - 4.5 out of 5 stars
3.  Witchstruck by Victoria Lamb - 4 out of 5 stars
4.  Rutherford Park by Elizabeth Cooke - 3.5 out of 5 stars (Review to come)
5.  These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner - 5 out of 5 stars (review to come)
6.  The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey - 3.5 out of 5 stars (Review to come)

September Top Five:

1.  Favorite Book:  These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner - I loved this sci-fi romance. The setting was incredible and I was really invested in the story.  It's a debut that I highly recommend and will be posting my review in early October.

2.  Biggest Surprise:  Endless by Jessica Shirvington- Usually when I read a series, I sort of get bored by book four, but Shirvington does a great job keeping us interested. I really enjoyed Endless.

3.  Biggest Disappointment: The 5th Wave by Rich Yancey- This book received a ton of hype and a few bloggers that I trust recommended this book, but when it came down to it, I felt it was only a little bit better than "just okay."

4.  Favorite Post: My interview with Lauren Willig. I adore her books and was excited to share our interview.

5.  Favorite Part of September: September has been so busy, but selling our house (for the second time!)  is the highlight. I just hope that it all goes smoothly until the settlement.   *fingers crossed*

So, what have you guys been up to? What have been some of your favorite book that you read this month? I hope you had a super September and I look forward to my hiatus ending on October 7th.  See you then! 


  1. 5 out of 5 for THESE BROKEN STARS? Wow! I'll be looking forward to seeing your review for that one.

    Hope you're enjoying your hiatus :)

  2. I'm so excited to start These Broken Stars!

  3. Ahhh! So disappointed you didn't LOVE The 5th Wave BUT different books for different readers, right?? It was one of my faves!

    1. Yes, I totally expected to love it, but it just wasn't for me. Thanks for visiting, Jen!

  4. Yay for lattes!!!!

    I'm slowing listening to audios while I work around the house.

    1. I SO need to start audios...I think that could work for me. I don't know why I haven't tried it yet! Thanks for visiting, Juju! Good luck with your home renovations/moving.

  5. I can't wait to start reading These Broken Stars! I've heard nothing but good things. :)


I really appreciate your comments. Thank you!
