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!
