September Reading Recap

September Reading Recap

September was a good month for books and reading for me! I wound up receiving two paperback copies of ARCs that I was really excited about (one of which was The Wife Between Us, which I am waiting to post a full review for until it is closer to the publication date), which threw my schedule off a bit, but you know. Books! So you make it work. It was also a great variety for me: a mix of ARCs and back list books, and genres ranging from young adult to adult, and contemporary to suspenseful thrillers.

Without further ado, let’s just get into it!

Books I read and reviewed:

Lies She told, by Cate Holahan

Lies She Told is a psychological thriller and mystery where the lines between truth and fiction are blurred.

The Shadow List, by Todd Moss

The Shadow List was the fast paced and action packed fourth book in Moss’s Judd Ryker series.


Select had a fascinating premise for a young adult fantasy.

The People We Hate at the Wedding, by Grant Ginder

The People We Hate at the Wedding was a sarcastic and satiric story about dysfunctional family dynamics and the powerful bond of love that endures through it all.

On Her Last Leg, by Wendy J. Reber

On Her Last Leg, the third book in the Legs of Life series, was more plot driven with a doozy of an ending!

Best Day Ever, by Kaira Rouda

Best Day Ever was a slow burning, suspenseful character study of a complex and compelling nature.

Beartown, by Fredrik Backman

Beartown was an extremely engaging, emotional, and thought provoking experience and you should READ it.

Feel Me Fall, by James Morris

Feel Me Fall was an incredible and fascinating story about the brutality of the Amazon and human nature.

On the stack for next month:


I’m so excited for the books I plan to read in October! I pushed Artemis back to make space in September for the new ARCs but am really looking forward to getting into it now! I’m also trying to forge ahead in some series that have been hanging in the back of my head for a while. And Anne Bogel’s Reading People just released (who else loves her podcast, What Should I Read Next??), and my love of personality assessments won’t let me wait! There also seems to be a short story theme going on that I definitely did not plan but happened nonetheless.

What are you reading or planning on reading next?
