I always say this but HOW IS IT POSSIBLE ANOTHER MONTH ENDED SO FAST?! We’re a couple of months away from the end of this year, can you believe it?! I’m not quite sure I want to go into another year just yet, I haven’t fully processed 2020 lol. Anyway, let’s get to the books I read in September before I start to ramble even more.
In September I participated in two readathons, the Bookoplathon and Magical Readathon. I didn’t read the books I first had chosen lol and I didn’t complete one of the readathons, but that was expected. So here’s the list of books I read in September.
City of Fallen Angels (The Mortal Instruments #4) by Cassandra Clare
I counted this book for the Bookoplathon, for the prompt of “The, Of, A, An & And” which was to read a book with any of those in the title. I didn’t love this book, but I didn’t hate it. I did enjoy it, but I was not that invested in the story, which was to be expected since I read the first half of this series last year. Overall it was entertaining and I had to read the next book because that cliffhanger, damn!
City of Lost Souls (The Mortal Instruments #5) by Cassandra Clare
I didn’t count this one for any readathon lol but I enjoyed it. I was starting to care a bit more about the characters and I was intrigued to know how the story was going to go. Nothing really happened here, all the fun and action happened in the last part.
City of Heavenly Fire (The Mortal Instruments #6) by Cassandra Clare
I counted this book for the Bookoplathon, for the prompt of “hyped” which is self-explanatory. I liked this one a lot. So much was happening and I wasn’t sure how everything was going to be solved. What I liked the most about this book was seeing two characters from The Infernal Devices for a little bit. I was so excited to finish reading this series because now I can keep reading the next books in The Shadowhunters Chronicles.
Wait for It by Mariana Zapata
I counted this book for the Bookoplathon, for the prompt of “human” which was to read a book with humans in it. And for the Magical Readathon, for the prompt of “the mist of solitude” which was to read a standalone. I loved this book and that was not surprising since I love Mariana Zapata’s writing style. She is the queen of slow burn romances and you can’t make me change my mind. Also she is the queen of creating such amazing and perfect and I-wish-they-were-real male characters. This story made me cry but it also made me laugh and swoon and smile. I had a great time reading Diana’s story. This is a new favorite book.
All Rhodes Lead Here by Mariana Zapata
I counted this book for the Magical Readathon, for the prompt of “tower of rumination” which was to read a 5 star prediction. I am happy to tell you that my prediction was correct. I mean, if I had any doubts that Mariana is one of my favorite romance authors, with this book they disappeared. I want to forget I have ever read this book so I can experience all of it for the first time once more! Another great book and if you haven’t read any of Mariana Zapata’s books, what are you waiting for? This one’s also a new favorite.
I thought reading two Mariana Zapata’s books back to back was a great idea… I didn’t pick a book for like a week. That woman just ruined me for other romances and male characters. But I’m not complaining tho. Overall I had a good reading month. I’m excited for October since A Kingdom of the Cursed is being released on October 5th and I can’t wait! And just because of it I already know October is going to be amazing.
Until the next post!
Happy reading 💙
