General bookish fun, Wrap-up

Monthly Wrap-Up: September Highlights


I haven’t done a wrap-up in awhile, I thought it was about time I fixed that. During September I managed to read five books, not bad for someone just getting out of a slump. I really enjoyed most of them, too!

Happy reading!

What I’ve read:

Shooting Martha by David Thewlis:

I loved Shooting Martha! It’s one of my favourite books I’ve read this year. Brilliantly written, dark and unsettling, definitely recommend!

My rating: ★★★★★

Trigger warnings:

  • Suicide
  • Child death/murder

The Wild Before by Piers Torday: (Gifted)

I loved this one from start to finish, it’s a prequel to The Last Wild trilogy, which I’ll definitely be reading asap!

My rating: ★★★★★

The Haunting of Lindy Pennyworth by S.M. Pope: (Gifted)

As soon as I read the blurb I was sent by Publicity, I was sold! It was everything I was hoping this year’s spooky season would bring. My full review will go up publication week.

My rating: ★★★★★

Trigger Warnings:

  • Death
  • Trichotillomania
  • Mental Health

You’re So Dead by Ash Parsons: (Gifted)

This one had so muc.f. potential, it was a miss for me though. I thought it was obvious who the killer was, so obvious I thought I had to be wrong. I was right from the start, one of the deaths were a bit ridiculous, too.

My rating: ★★

Trigger Warnings:

  • Death
  • Murder
  • Implied animal murder

Eve of Man by Giovanna & Tom Fletcher:

I loved this one, I don’t know why it took me so long to read it. The cliffhanger! I had to run to my piles of books to find the second one, I’m enjoying The Eve Illusion so far!

My rating: ★★★★★

Trigger Warnings:

  • Violence
  • A character is referred to as ‘Fatty’ twice

What did you read this month? Anything I should add to my TBR?
