what i read september

My goal for September was to read four books. And I’m happy to say that I was able to finish those four books!

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children ★★★★☆

I really wish this book hadn’t taken so long to get into. It took about a third of the novel for the story to really draw you in, but once it does there’s no putting it down. I loved exploring Miss Peregrine’s world. I can’t wait to find out what happens in the next book. And I’m really interested to see what they do with the movie version.

The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls ★★★☆☆

Do you ever read a book or watch a TV show/movie, and the whole time you’re thinking, “No! What are you doing? Don’t do that!” No? Maybe that’s just me. But this is one of those books. The main character, Thea Atwell, makes bad decision after decision. And honestly, I spent the whole time reading getting frustrated with her. Anton DiSclafani is a talented writer, but this story wasn’t for me.

Angels & Demons ★★★★☆

I could not put this down. Seriously, my kindle was in my hand if I had a spare moment to read a chapter or two. The first book in the popular Robert Langdon series was not a let down. There are new adventures at every turn, and the suspense keeps you turning the pages.

The Heir ★★★☆☆

The fourth book in The Selection series fast forwards to America and Maxon’s daughter, Eadlyn. At 18, it’s time for her to go through her own selection. While I did enjoy this novel, it wasn’t the original selection that I loved so much. I think I would have rather seen America and Maxon in their engagement or their first years of marriage in the continuation of the series. I did grow to like Eadlyn and her suitors towards the end, but it wasn’t what I was hoping for.

 

  • I haven’t read Miss Peregrine’s yet, but I’m interested now because of the movie version! It’s good to know that once you got into it you couldn’t put it down! I absolutely loved Angels & Demons so much! I actually enjoyed it more than The Da Vinci Code.

    • I haven’t read The Da Vinci Code. That’s on my list for this month! I think you’ll really like Miss Peregrine’s!

  • It took me a little bit to get into the first Miss Peregrine’s too, but the others are more action-packed and get going faster. It was also a series I was actually satisfied with how it ended, so that’s always a plus too!

  • I loved The Da Vinci Code but I never read Angels and Demons. I really enjoyed Miss Peregrine’s. I haven’t read the other books but I want to! And, I really want to go see the movie. It looks so good and I love going to see movies after I read the book.

    • Me too! I’m really excited to see what they do with the movie! The Da Vinci Code is on my reading list for this month, so I’ll let you know what I think!

  • Congrats on meeting your reading goal for the month! It looks like you had pretty good luck with all of your books too– I would love to read that Dan brown series one day.

    • Thanks, Carly! I can’t speak for the others yet, but I would highly recommend Angels & Demons!
