Sooo I completely forgot that a new month means a new monthly reading update! And THAT means going through my emails to see how much money I’ve spent on books recently.
As usual, someone seems to have hacked my accounts and purchased an ungodly amount of books for me to add to my UTBR (unlikely to be read) pile.
– What Happened –
I’m actually really happy that I was able to finish three decent-sized novels this month, all very different from each other!
I’ve been really looking forward to reading The Book of Accidents by Chuck Wendig, having heard a lot about the author and the book. I’ve also read a couple of disappointing horror stories recently, so this novel came along at a perfect time! You can read my review here.
My second book of the month was The Hand of the Sun King which I enjoyed, but didn’t think it quite lived up to the hype.
Lastly, I read The Second Rebel, Linden A. Lewis’ follow-up to her debut The First Sister. It was inteeeense. Review to come soon!
– The Damage –
Okay so I don’t feel too bad since three of these were sold as sets, so technically I only made 17 purchases. Totally normal.
Also, I now only need to find a copy of The Dragon Reborn to complete my 1st/1st UK Wheel of Time set 😍 It’s been a lot of fun collecting these over the last couple of years, as opposed to just thrusting my money at Goldsboro before they sell out of a special edition and people sell them on for 3x the price because ‘that’s what book collecting is’ 🙄 </rant>.

– What’s Gonna Happen –
September is an exciting month because I now only have FOUR review copies to read! I stopped requesting through Netgalley a few months back so I can go back to reading whatever the heck I want, when I want (which I could have just done all along–book blogging is weird like that). I haven’t decided whether or not I’ll keep posting reviews beyond this, but I’m definitely excited to get back in the dusty depths of my TBR shelves/piles/trip hazards without any commitments.
P.s. Started Iron Widow, its freakin’ awesome.
