I actually read A LOT in September, as I did have the month off, so I actually had time for life a little. Though to be fair, a good chunk of the books I read were manga. I read 27 books in the month of September. So, let’s just get into this.
The Killing Moon by N. K. Jemisin
This was the first book that I read in September. For those of you who’ve been here for a while, you know that I absolutely LOVE N. K. Jemisin’s Broken Earth Trilogy, I’ve done both a spoiler free review and a spoilertastic discussion on it, so you can check those out. So I was obviously excited to try another one of her series. I have to say, this one is not as good as The Broken Earth, however, it’s still a good story, with a cool and interesting magic system and world. So I definitely enjoyed it and will continue with the series, but it’s not as awesome as The Broken Earth. I gave it 4/5 stars.
Stalking Jack The Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco
Next, I flew through the audiobook for this one. I really enjoyed the narration and of course, the story. The ending was a bit weirder than I expected, it had a sci-fi vibe that I hadn’t expected going into this book, but it was still immensely entertaining to listen to. I loved Audrey-Rose and I ship her and Creswell so muchhhh! 5/5 stars
Attack on Titan Vol. 4 – 26 by Hajime Isayama
This is where the bulk of the books I read this month comes from. As you can see, I read 22 volumes of this manga, I am now up to date with it and oh, man did I not see this coming. There were obviously some volumes I enjoyed more than others and the final few volumes have far too little Levi in them for my taste, but overall, I loved the series and I’m bursting for the ending. I would say that on average, my rating for this series is 4/5 stars.
The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Cartheynne M. Valente
This book took me a LONG time to read. Not sure why, as I did enjoy it. But I guess I just wasn’t in the mood for middle grade as much in the past year. I ended up giving it 3.5/5 stars in the end.
The Accidental Further Adventures of the Hundred Year Old Man by Jonas Jonasson
I have loved every Jonas Jonasson book I’ve read so far and this was no exception. While I did think the first book was better, I still really lived this one. As its predecessor, it was both amusing and educational, full of self aware humour and excellent satire. 4.5/5 stars
