Hello Bookish People! September is over and it’s time for a wrap-up! As I mentioned before that I had my exams going on in September. Even though I was continuously studying, during breaks I would pick up a book and read. Because of that consistency, I ended up reading 8 books which have been the highest number of books read during this year! Consistency makes everything work! Detailed reviews will be out separately for all the books soon 🙂
Let’s get into the wrap-up>>
The Final Gambit by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
This was on my anticipated list and I was so excited to read this book. That excitement went downhill when I reached the end. I had very high expectations since I had given the previous books 5 stars, so the ending did not meet my anticipations.
Kafka On The Shore by Murakami
I loved this book. It is a beautifully written story, woven with magical and realistic elements with a dash of Japan’s history.
Layla by Colleen Hoover
I loved verity and I wanted to read another paranormal romance by coho. In the end, I was like, “what did I just read?” So thrilling and interesting with a banger of an ending!
Before The Coffee Gets Cold by Toshikazu Kawaguchi
Such heartwarming and meaningful stories will stick with me forever. They were so impactful with such a beautiful message at the end… I will never forget these stories ❤
Birthday Girl by Murakami
Murakami’s words are a mystery, yet his writing style is so beautiful and comforting. Birthday Girl is a very short story with a meaningful meaning. I couldn’t understand what happens in the end at first, but then I realized after reading it again!
I’m Glad My Mom Died by Jennette McCurdy
This was very raw and heartbreaking. I didn’t have any knowledge about Jennette McCurdy, but when I started reading this book, I couldn’t believe that she had to go through such abuse. Although I would say that coming to the After part, it became a bit slow. But other than that, this book is worth the read.
The Maid by Nita Prose
I do like the story but the main character gets me every time. Molly the maid is very innocent and sometimes she does not understand things, which kind of bugged me at times. Overall a solid read.
Sputnik Sweetheart by Murakami
This was so mysterious and confusing in a good way. At times I couldn’t make out what is reality and what is not while reading, which was very unique. Really enjoyed it!
I hope you enjoyed reading this wrap-up. Looking forward to a good reading month in October! How many books did you read in September? Let me know in the comments! 😀
