September Wrap-Up!

Considering previous months, September can’t be considered a great reading month for me but I’m happy with the result. My knee has not improved and so it has made me a little bit moody all month long which affected my reading, not gonna lie. Fortunately the seven books I’ve read were great and I’m pleased about it.



1. Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout
2. Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout
3. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
4. Opal by Jennifer L. Armentrout
5. Origin by Jennifer L. Armentrout
6. I Was a Teenage Ghost Hunter by Brian K. Henry (ebook)
7. The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan


I decided to read Obsidian because it was the Little Book Club pick of the month and I enjoyed it a lot. It is true it has some similarities with Twilight but I honestly prefer Obsidian. After that I picked up Onyx to know how the story continued. I gave Obsidian 5 stars and Onyx 4.

So, I needed a break from the whole alien world and I made up my mind and finally read ReadyPlayer One and holy molly that book was amazing. I did a review in case you wanna know more about my thoughts but I gave it 4.5 stars.

Immediately after I read Opal and Origin, books 3 and 4 in the Lux series and they were perfect to lighten up my mood even though the ending of Opal was heart-breaking. I gave them both 5 stars. And one might think that after that I would dive into Opposition straightaway but no. Instead I picked up I Was aTeenage Ghost Hunter and I loved it, 5 stars. Perfect ghost story and I also did a review of it.

Finally, I read The Mark of Athena and of course I gave it 5 stars. My plan was to read that and The House of Hades but I only managed to finish the third book (and now I’m currently reading The House of Hades) in preparation for the fifth and final book in the Heroes of Olympus series. And I’m sad that it is coming to an end because I love those books and is gonna be hard to say goodbye.

And that’s all I’ve read in September. How did you do this month? Are you happy with your reading? Let me know!

    Vintage Classics: Brontë Series

    Maybe you don’t know this about me but I collect different edition of Jane Eyre and when I learnt that Vintage was releasing the new Brontë series I just couldn’t say no. 

    The 80th Anniversary Edition of Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier

    I received this beautiful edition in the mail yesterday and I just couldn't not share it here. I read Rebecca last year and despite not writing a full review of it here on the blog, it became one of my all time favourites. Still today there are moments when I find myself thinking about the story and the characters. Du Maurier brings to life and incredible story and memorable characters and it's one of those books I'll recommend to anyone.

    On the Come Up by Angie Thomas | 2021 Reads

      I enjoyed this because Thomas focuses mostly on the internal conflicts of the main character and how her decisions affect her and everybody around her and still deals with a lot of racial issues that Black (and Brown) young people have to deal with in the US, especially in poor neighbourhoods. Bri is a teen going through a difficult time. She can seem hot-headed, opinionated and, at times, selfish, but she is just trying to be herself, help those she loves and pursue her dreams of becoming a rapper. I was reminded though of why I rarely read YA contemporary fiction these days: one, dramatic teens (don't get me wrong, I get where they are coming from but still makes my eyes roll) and two, intentional lack of communication between adults and kids which drives me up the wall.
