September is over! When did that happen? This month has been my first back at college so I’ve been a bit busier this month as a result. However, I still read a few books. I’m super excited that fall is now in full swing because I love fall and I can wear all my cosy clothes again. Anyway, I read 5 books this month, all of which were on my TBR for this month and I’m happy that I read everything I wanted to.
What I Read In September:
Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo
This book is the final novel in the popular Grisha Trilogy. This book was my favourite out of the series as it dealt with some of the issues I’ve had whilst reading the rest of the series. Alina, the protagonist, has grown so much over the course of this series and it’s wonderful to have her journey come to a satisfying end.
The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton
I really enjoyed this story! It’s as whimsical and unusual as everyone says it is, focusing on a girl who is born with wings. Although it features sad moments, this book still has a very hopeful feel to it. This book focuses not only on Ava Lavender but also on her family history and how the events of the past affect her. It’s one of most unique books I’ve read this year.
The Loneliness of Distant Beings by Kate Ling
This is a sci-fi novel focusing on a group of humans travelling through space trying to save the human race. However, the main focus of this book is the romance. I found the relationship between Seren and Dom, the two main characters, fairly unrealistic as they were in love within a few pages of meeting each other. Yet, it was addictive and fun so I did enjoy reading it.
Death Note Volume 4 & 5 by Tsugumi Ohba
I’ve been working my way through this manga series for a while now and I’m still really enjoying it. The fourth volume was easily my favourite so far but the fifth volume has taken a bit of a turn that I’m not sure if I like. I still want to continue on with this series and hopefully the next volume will be back on track.

What I Want to Read in October:
I don’t really have a planned TBR this month. My main focus is going to be finishing the two books I’m reading at the moment. The first being The Foxhole Court by Nora Sakavic which I started at the beginning of September but still haven’t finished because I got distracted by other books and tv programs (oops!). The second is Empire of Storms by Sarah J Maas which I started a week ago and it’ll probably take me a while to get through that. I love Sarah J Maas’ books but they take me so long to get through! After I’ve finished those, I plan to read some ebooks, including a couple classics, but I’m undecided as to which at the moment. I also want to get to Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo this month because I need to know what happens!
What’s Happening in October:
It’s Halloween this month! Which I’m not really a big fan of… But there is a Halloween Readathon going on which sounds fun so I will be taking part in that. I want to continue posting regularly but I’m also planning to post some different types of posts at some point. So look forward to that!
What’s on your TBR this month?
