Do you remember when I said I wanted to read ten books in September and then laughed at myself because I’m taking two AP classes? Yeah, I remember it too. I only read three? Maybe?
1-The Rose and the Dagger by Renée Ahdieh
I had hoped to finish this book on the day the month started (or close to it) and ended up taking a week longer than I originally anticipated. I gave this one four stars as The Wrath and the Dawn was better. I will link my review to it once I actually get my life together and write one. (Same goes for the rest of the books on this list).
2-The Wizards of Once ARC by Cressida Cowell
I probably should have read this one sooner, as I finished it only a few days before the release date, and I still haven’t reviewed it. Let’s put it this way, I’m not going to be the number one endorser of this book. It was just…bad. Two stars from me.
3-The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith
As if this month couldn’t have gotten worse, I also rated this book two stars. I will probably have a lengthy review out for this one later because I have multiple complaints. I think the main word to describe this is: problematic. I’ll get more into that in the review, though, so keep your eyes on the look out for that.
4(?)- The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
It’s the first day of October; I am still reading this book. I hope to finish it tonight, but we saw how my hoping turned out last month, too. But, I’m also loving this, so it’s an improvement from the last two books.
All in all, this wasn’t a great reading month. I hope to improve that in October…
As for the rest of my life, this month wasn’t exactly fantastic. That’s mostly because of school stress. AP Art History is a very interesting class, but the workload is heavy and the tests are extraordinarily difficult.
The verdict: September 2017 was not the greatest month of my life. But that’s okay. I pledge to read more in October, plan for Nanowrimo (and actually participate this year?), get at least a B in AP Art History, and handle whatever life throws at me with grace.
Have a great October, all!
