September Wrap Up | Faith

Alright, so the first book I read this month was A Court of Mist And Fury! Honestly, this might've been my favourite book of the year. Obviously, this book wasn't perfect and I did find things that I didn't like. The main thing was the pacing, I just felt like it only gripped me in the beginning and end, and that it fell flat somewhere in the middle.

If you didn't know, I wasn't a huge fan of A Court of Thorns and Roses so I was actually very hesitant to pick this up. If it weren't the for the praise that this novel was getting, I wouldn't have picked it up otherwise. The ending definitely blew me away, and I can't wait for the next book. I would rate this book a 4 out of 5 stars.

The next book I read in September was, Rebel of The Sands by Alwyn Hamilton. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I feel like this book was quite hyped. Again, I always find myself being disappointed in hyped books now a days. Let's just keep this short by saying that this book could have had a lot more depth than it did. This book has a lot of potential to be something great especially since it's going to be a series. Hopefully as the series goes on, the overall quality will improve as well. Will I be reading the sequels? Probably not. I would rate this a 2 out of 5 stars.

The third book I read was Origin by, Jennifer L. Armentrout. In the beginning of this series, I had really high hopes... Now it's kind of gone downhill. For the first maybe 25% of the book, I was super interested in the content. However once we reached the middle and the end, I was constantly eye-rolling. The romance in this book wasn't appealing to me, it was overdone and it seemed like the only thing that was on the characters minds. I was just constantly asking myself, is this all they can focus on? Considering the circumstances these characters were in, I would imagine that the strength of their relationship wouldn't be their top priority. Not to mention it kind of seemed like there was no emotional connection between the two because of focused they were on noticing how attractive they were to one another. Another problem I had with this book was the fact that it not only consisted of 75% unneeded romance, it lacked depth in both the characters and the stories, and finally I couldn't tell the difference between Kat and Daemons point of view. You know, I don't really know if I'm going to continue on with this series, I have been let down with the last few books so I really can't be sure. I would rate this a 2 out of 5 stars.

The fourth book I read was sent to me from Blaze Publishing and that is... The Surrendered by Case Maynard. I'm not really gonna say much on this book considering I have a written review on it which you can view HERE. I thought this was a very typical YA dystopian, but at the end of the day it was a very strong novel. I would rate this a 3.5 out of 5 stars.

The fifth book I read was Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Cordova. Again, I'm not gonna say a lot because I also have a review on this book which you can view HERE. I thought this book had a really unique and interesting concept. It did lack in certain things but it was still a very enjoyable read. I would rate this a 3 out of 5 stars.

The sixth book I read was Tales of The Peculiar by: Ransom Riggs! I fairly enjoyed this, there were stories in this book that I wasn't too fond off but there were some that I found to be very interesting to read about. I think my favourite one was about the cannibals. If you're a fan of Miss Peregrines, and are hesitant about picking this, I would encourage you to do so! It's a book from the world, and it's truly fascinating to read about.
