September has definitely been a month that I’ve struggled to find the time for reading. I have started a new job and I just haven’t managed to sort out my work-life balance yet so my reading definitely suffered. I’m also behind on my reviews as well, only by one but I always like to be on point with them usually. So my September Wrap Up is a little smaller than previous months!
Quick run through:
- I haven’t managed to read any of my 2018 Books I Need to Read in my September Wrap Up, I did attempt to read The Iliad and I just couldn’t get into the story and the language. I even tried a different translation, it might be another that I unhaul.
- This was a month of reading e-arcs, in fact, they made up almost half of my reading this month, first up was The Winter Soldier. This wasn’t a winner for me, I thought it was beautifully written but the story was a little lacking in my opinion.
- The Gender Game was a book that I found via Kindle Unlimited and I actually really enjoyed, but I did have a few issues with the story and the characters.
- I ended up reading another e-arc which was The Sisters of the Winter Wood and I loved the different culture and mythology was fantastic! It was definitely a surprise.
- I finished the month with a book that I’ve been listening to for a while and finally finished it. So was definitely a high note for me.
As usual, if there’s a review the cover will be clickable.
