Leta’s August and September Wrap-Up

This fall has been crazy. Between everything that’s been going on in my life and switching over this website to a new host, I’ve been unable to get as many book reviews done and shared. When I have had time, I’ve been focusing on reviews and not wrap-ups.

So, I’m going to start with August and move through time to the end of September. There won’t be any more TBR posts, since I’ll be including hopes and plans for the next month in the Wrap-Ups.

August was a crazy month of traveling back and forth to my grandparent’s farm. I didn’t get to read as much as I wanted to, but I was able to read nine books.

  • House of Sky and Breath by Sarah J. Maas
  • Sensory: Life on the Spectrum by Schnumn
  • Dad Joke Launch Station by Jack West
  • A Little Wilder by Serena Bell
  • Blood Like Fate by Liselle Sambury
  • Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
  • Game Changer by Stacey Lynn
  • Blade Breaker by Victoria Aveyard
  • The King Will Kill You by Sarah Henning

September was similar in the craziness, but it was over faster. My sister got married (congratulations!) at the beginning of the month and after that things began to calm down. I was able to read more as the stress of things faded away and I got to eleven books!

  • Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas
  • Catwoman: Soulstealer by Sarah J. Maas and Louise Simonson
  • Long Live the Pumpkin Queen by Shea Ernshaw
  • A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
  • What If? 2: Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions by Randall Munroe (read by Wil Wheaton)
  • Queen Song by Victoria Aveyard
  • By Water by Jason Landsel
  • Mistress Mackintosh and the Shaw Wretch by Rose Prendeville
  • Winterwood by Shea Ernshaw
  • A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas
  • Please Join Us by Catherine McKenzie

The featured image on this post contains my top three reads from each month. For August, those were House of Sky and Breath, Blade Breaker, and The King Will Kill You. September’s were Kingdom of Ash, Long Live the Pumpkin Queen, and Winterwood. All of the books I read were great and that helped me avoid a slump. A ton of these are on my list for book reviews and they’ll be coming out as soon as I get them written.

I made some massive decisions about my novel during September. I’ve added the second point of view back in since I’ve decided that it makes the entire story more impactful and more interesting. My goal for October was to get some serious editing and rewriting done to update the second POV to make sense. I’ll talk more about that in the October Wrap-up in a few days.

I’m going to get some reviews written for these last few days in October and most of November. Hopefully things get more consistent after that. Thank you so much for reading. Tune in soon for more book reviews!
