I didn’t read that many books in September so I decided to just combine my wrap up with October’s. I only read four books in September 😦 but finished nine in October thanks to a lovely invention called audiobooks. I also reached the 50 book mark, which makes me more confident about reaching my goal of 75 books by the end of the year. Recent faves:
The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo – This anthology of six fairytale-like illustrated stories set in the Grishaverse is absolutely stunning! I’ve only read Shadow and Bone and I didn’t feel like you needed to read every Grisha book to understand this one. My favourite story was Little Knife, mainly because the ending truly wowed me. The illustrations were gorgeous and really made the book. This is also a short read, so it’s a great book to add to your reading challenge.
Ghost by Jason Reynolds – This is the first MG book in the author’s Track series and OH MY GOD it was amazing! I listened to the audiobook, read by Guy Lockard, and both the writing and the narrator were incredible. I don’t think I have ever read a book that actually made me want to run (something I hated in public and high school). I never wanted this book to end, it was so good. I can’t wait to finish Patina, the next book in the Track series and to read Sunny, the 3rd book in the series.
