September Wrap Up and October TBR

It’s time for my monthly Wrap Up and TBR post!

The aim of this reading game is to help me read more books and hopefully get on top of the ever-growing To Be Read pile.  The more books I read, the more books I can buy.  The more books I can buy, the more books I can read  It’s a win-win, right?

Books I Read in September

To All The Boys I Loved Before by Jenny Han – 3*
Bookshop Girl by Chloe Coles3*
Our House by Louise Candlish4*
What a Time To Be Alone by Chidera Eggerue – 5*
Bookshop Girl: Life’s a Beach by Chloe Coles3*
Help Me! by Marianne Power4*
Death in 10 Minutes by Fern Riddell3*
You Only Live Once by Jess Vallance4*

Book of the Month

Even though I have a 5* read this month, I’m awarding my book of the month accolade to Our House by Louise Candlish.  A  deliciously twisty thriller, with an incredibly unique and intriguing plot, this book had me hooked from the first chapter.  I read this book during every free moment I had in October, and I honestly could not put it down.  I think I drove my workmates mad with my constant screeching of “READ THIS BOOK!”.

Rosie Loves Jack by Mel Darbon | P.S I Still Love You by Jenny Han | Tilly and the Bookwanderers by Anna James

Even though I have so many books to read by the end of this year, I was desperate to read Rosie Loves Jack by Mel Darbon and I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw it was available at my local library.   Rosie Loves Jack is one of my most anticipated reads of 2018, and I cannot put into words how excited I am to read this book.

As soon as I finished To All The Boys I Loved Before, I immediately went online to reserve a copy of P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han at my local library.  The second instalment in the To All The Boys trilogy, I can’t wait to be reunited with Lara Jean and Peter Kavinsky once again. *swoons*.

Finally, another book that was high on my anticipated releases list is Tilly and the Bookwanderers by Anna James.   After seeing countless glowing reviews, I couldn’t resist buying a copy for myself (and signing up to the new Waterstones loyalty card).   As a big fan of Anna James, I have high hopes for her debut tale of bookish adventures.

What will you be reading in October?

    8 books in September seems like a great month! To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before is the only one of your September reads that I’ve read. I never got around to finishing the rest of the series though so I’m intrigued to see what you think and whether I should go back! Pages & Co is so pretty and I’m definitely intrigued by it.
