There were way too many books on my reading pile for September, but I read most of them. I had to put aside two books and I hope to read in the next few months, and one book I didn’t finish. I read 15 books and most of them were good fun, too! I think I’m getting better and better at choosing books that I’ll enjoy.
Books that stood out:
It’s hard to say! I read a lot of good books, and they were good for different reasons: A Hologram for the King was a fun and easy read, and that’s also true for My Legendary Girlfriend. The Treatment was a really good thriller (edge of seat kind) while The Orchardist was very atmospheric and very well written. What I Did was a book with a heavy topic that made me angry, and both The Miracle Inspector and The Mall were clever futuristic stories.
I can’t choose! I had a good month.
