It’s pouring rain and I’m so ready for cozy sweaters, tea, and all the books.
Books I read in September:
- The Good Daughter, by Karin Slaughter
It kills me a little how every suspense/thriller book feels the need to have twist, after twist, after twist. The number of twists does not correlate to how good a novel is.
- The Orphan’s Tale, by Pam Jenoff
If you can get over the author’s fantastic incomprehension of how flying trapeze (or physics in general) work, I guess this was moderately enjoyable.
- The Woman in the Window, by A.J. Finn
Some twists were predictable, some weren’t. I’d say this is one of the better “this is the next Gone Girl!” books, but still not notable enough for me to recommend it.
- The Bookshop of Yesterdays, by Amy Meyerson
This might have been okay if the main character wasn’t so irritating. But even then…
- The Disappearances, by Emily Bain Murphy
I’m on a roll of painfully mediocre books this month.
- Behind Closed Doors, by B.A. Paris
This was one of the best contemporary thrillers I’ve read. The ending gave me chills…
- Foe, by Iain Reid
A quick and easy read, with just enough staying power to linger in your mind.
- When Life Gives You Lululemons, by Lauren Weisberger
I’ve read so many guilty-pleasure thrillers lately that it was a little weird to read a regular old guilty pleasure. I think I’m about 10 years too young to enjoy this one, though.
- Girl, Wash Your Face, by Rachel Hollis
I really wish I’d noticed that this was categorized as “Christian Literature” before I started it.
- Bring Me Back, by B.A. Paris
I had high hopes for this following Behind Closed Doors, but it was pretty meh.
- Content Chemistry, by Andy Crestodina
This was basically a textbook I read for work, so I’m not sure it even counts. But I read it cover-to-cover, so why not?
- Beartown, by Fredrik Backman
This book is everything.
YTD books read: 89
