Reading Wrap Up September 2016!

Hi lovelies,

Today I would like to share with you what I read in the month of September.

September was pretty much a total fail on the reading front. I got caught up in re-watching Grey's Anatomy from the very beginning (again) and then I was really busy with work and life in general. However, I did manage to read one or two things which I thought I would share with you today.

I got some reading done at the end of the month, though and I ended up enjoying everything so it was still a good month!

This month I read...

French Milk by Lucy Knisley - 4/5 - Graphic Memoir
Second Chance Summer by Jill Shalvis - 2.75/5 - Romance
Relish: My Life in the Kitchen by Lucy Knisley - 4/5 - Graphic Memoir 
Short Stories from Hogwarts of Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies by J. K. Rowling - 4/5 - Short Stories
Short Stories from Hogwarts of Power, Politics and Pesky Poltergeists by J. K. Rowling - 4/5 Short Stories


Ready Player One by Ernest Cline* - 4/5 science fiction 

*listened to on audiobook
**read in e-book format

My favourite read this month was...

probably French Milk by Lucy Knisley, which I wouldn't have expected. I called it a graphic memoir but it's more like a graphic travelogue? I love the mix of real pictures, with diary entries and drawings and it really just intrigued me.

My least favourite read this month was...

I actually enjoyed everything I read this month, but I was left a little disappointed by Second Chance Summer by Jill Shalvis. It was OK, but from reading Simply Irresistible last month, I know she can do better. I was also left with a bad taste in my mouth over how she approached safe sex in this one.

My most surprisingly good read this month was... 

I kind of did expect to enjoy everything I read, nothing was massively out of my comfort zone but I was definitely pleasantly surprised by just how much I enjoyed French Milk by Lucy Knisley.

I also didn't plan on reading the newly published Harry Potter Short Story collections but I was again pleasantly surprised - look out for a post with some mini reviews coming soon!

My re-reads this month were...

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. This was the first time I had re-read this and I decided to listen to the audiobook because it's narrated by my one true geek love (aside from my husband of course!); Wil Wheaton.

I really enjoyed this, but I did down rate it to a 4/5. The first time I read this I was somehow not aware of the info-dumping that everyone talks about, but in the audiobook it was really obvious and a little (dare I say?) boring. Although Wil was the perfect narrator for this, and I really enjoyed re-visiting this story overall!
