Happy September, friends! 🍂🌾✨
Another month down and we are quickly approaching my favorite time of year! I had a pretty solid reading month in August and managed to read 8 books which were all a decent mix of contemporary, romance, fantasy, and mystery books. Now I’m moving on to all the spooky, mystery, fantasy reads since autumn is right around the corner and I couldn’t be more excited!
Let’s dive in!

Don’t feel like reading a review?
Here’s my thoughts on each book in one sentence!
- Beach Read – I was not expecting to cry but here we are.
- Restless Slumber – True Blood meets ACOTAR but make it dark.
- Lobizona – Pick this up now and thank me later.
- The Damned – Still waiting on more vampires…
- Catherine House – A beautifully written weird and unique story, just not my cup of tea.
- The Wall of Winnipeg and Me – Slow burn with a side of extra slooooooow.
- They Wish They Were Us – A fun read while it lasted but pretty predictable.
- This Coven Won’t Break – The gay witches are back for vengeance…what more do I need to say?
Favorite Read of the Month
This definitely caught me by surprise and I mean that in a good way. I thought this was going to be some light, summery, rom-com type of read and boy was I wrong. While there were a few laugh out loud moments in this book it was also pretty sad in terms of what some of the characters were going through. And I love a heavy read over here so I really enjoyed my time with this one!
Least Favorite Read of the Month
I’m still pretty bummed about this one. I was really looking forward to The Damned after how the first book ended. I thought the author did a really good job setting up what would be a promising sequel and it just let me down on so many levels. I also thought this was a duology but after the ending of this book I quickly learned it most definitely is not.
Until next time,
