September 2018 Wrap Up

The closer we get to my favorite season, the faster the months fly by!! Honestly, though, I hope October also flies by so I can finish grad school.

Let's review September shall we?

Here's what was on my TBR:

Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng - Done! This was the book club book and it provided lots of good discussion for us.

Lethal White by Robert Galbraith - Nope. I still haven't seen this come in from the library. I'm still number 16 on the hold list. Who knows if I'll ever see it.

What to Read and Why by Francine Prose - Read! This was a fun little book about books. Also it fulfilled a Read Harder Challenge to read a book of essays.

The Other Einstein by Marie Benedict - Read. This book kind of pissed me off. First, I was pissed off because of the way Einstein treated his wife. Then I listened to the end notes and I was pissed off because all of that entire plot line was made up.

A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman - Done! I loved this book. I must put more Backman on my TBR!!!

The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer - Done! I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. It had great character development.

That's all that was on my TBR.

Blackass by A. Igoni Barrett - This was a carryover from my August TBR. I enjoyed this bizarre story of a black man in Nigeria who wakes up one morning as a white man. Red hair and all. Except his butt was still black. Igoni Barrett also turns up in this book as a man who becomes a woman later in the book. It's seriously weird, but so interesting.

Real Friends by Shannon Hale - This is an autobiographical graphic novel about the author's struggle in middle school to make friends who accepted her and didn't make her feel worthless.

I'd Rather Be Reading by Anne Bogel - I love Anne's podcast What Should I Read Next. This lovely little book is about the joys of the reading life. It is like a hug.

That's 8 books in September! That's a long way from 2 years ago when I didn't finish a single book in September. I'll take it. What did you read in September?
