My September Book Round Up

 

A Court of Mist and Fury Book

It's officially October (yay spooky season has begun) so that means it's time to round up the books I read in September and let you know my thoughts on each of them. I managed to work my way through five books in total, one psychological thriller, and 4 fantasy books from two different (very popular) series. I'm just going to give a brief review and rating of each book and my overall thoughts on my reads for the month. I won't' be giving a synopsis of the books and I'll avoid giving away any spoilers as I'll save this kind of information for individual reviews.

A Court of Thorns and Roses

Author: Sarah J. Maas

Rating: 4.5/5

After seeing this everywhere and constantly hearing this being talked about I had to give this a read and I wasn't disappointed. Initially, I thought 'fae' really isn't for me, it's just not my thing but this book changed my mind. It had the perfect amount of action, adventure and romance, the story got me hooked and I immediately after finishing started the second book.

A Court of Thorns and Roses

A Court of Mist and Fury

Author: Sarah J. Maas

Rating: 5/5

I enjoyed this book even more than the last (thanks to Rhys), we were introduced to more characters and got more insight into our previous characters, I loved the world-building and the differences in all the courts. As with the last book we got plenty of action and a little helping of some spice, this will definitely be a good comfort read. I won't go too in-depth with my thoughts on either of these books as I'll probably either do individual reviews on the books or a review on the series as a whole.

The Silent Patient book and glass of red wine

The Silent Patient

Author: Alex Michaelides

Rating: 3/5

For a long time thrillers were pretty much all I read and I heard good things about this book so couldn't help but pick it up. I enjoyed this book but didn't love it, it was a nice quick easy read and the twist was good but it just fell a little flat and I did have some questions about the twist and how the book ended, some of it just felt a little farfetched and didn't fully make sense to me but I'll not say any more as I don't want to give away any spoilers but overall this wasn't my favourite thriller and it was probably my least favourite book this month.

Zodiac Academy - The Awakening 

Author: Caroline Peckham Susanne Valenti

Rating: 3.5/5

This was another book that I've seen being talked about all over booktok so I decided to give it a read. I found the first half of the book enjoyable but wasn't in love, this book does have a lot of bullying which isn't always particularly pleasant and certainly doesn't leave you loving very many of the characters but the more I read the more I got sucked in and by the time I finished this book I did feel compelled to give the second one a go.

Zodiac Academy book

Zodiac Academy - Ruthless Fae

Author: Caroline Peckham Susanne Valenti

Rating: 4/5

I enjoyed this book more than the first, there was still a fair bit of bullying in this book however we got a little more insight into why our characters (the heirs) act the way they do and our main characters (the vega twins) finally start getting their own back. We also got some more tension and romance which is always good and I'll definitely be continuing with this series soon.

And that's all I have for you today, keep an eye on my blog/Instagram for more monthly round-ups and full reviews.
