Hello, hi and welcome! September honestly wasn’t a great reading month for me ಥ_ಥ along with exams(my marks weren’t too bad surprisingly hahah) and tons of homework I couldn’t get much reading done. But anyways without further ado lets go to the bookkss(☞ﾟヮﾟ)☞, [I’m obsessed with emoticons can you tell]
The Selection by Kiera Cass
A very average book, then again was not expecting much from this . We follow a dystopian society where 35 girls get the chance of a lifetime to compete in the selection-a competition to win the heart of the prince . I honestly though this was so predictable, highly doubt if I’ll be continuing this series. Let me know if you’d like an in-depth review of this book(¬‿¬) also should i check out the next book(does the series really get better lol)
Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone
EEEKKKK I LOVED THIS SO SO MUCH! I initially found out about this book through a blog, and the summary seemed quite interesting but it was never really a priority read for me. When i saw this at the library i decided to just pick it up on a whim and oh boy it was such a great decision. We follow Sam a teenager with OCD who’s also a part of her school’s “mean girls/popular clique”. She’s been trying to hide this from her friends but its getting harder day by day. When Sam meets Caroline, a new friend, she has to keep her a secret, right up there with Sam’s weekly visits to her psychiatrist. Caroline introduces Sam to Poet’s Corner, a hidden room and a tight-knit group of misfits who have been ignored by the school at large. Sam is drawn to them immediately, especially a guitar-playing guy with a talent for verse, and starts to discover a whole new side of herself. I loved Sam’s POV so so so so so much. The dark thoughts spiraling in her mind felt like what I’ve experienced many times. I really recommend check this book out, Definitely one of my favourites of 2021.
The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo
DNF at 50%
In this book we follow Xiomara, a young girl who feels oppressed in her household and finds comfort in writing poetry. When she is invited to join her school’s slam poetry club, she doesn’t know how she could ever attend without her mother finding out, much less speak her words out loud. But still, she can’t stop thinking about performing her poems. Now don’t get me wrong this is not a bad book. I like Acevedo’s writing a lot and i really enjoyed how the book was written in prose, i just felt that i wasn’t in a good place to continue reading this. It deals with a few heavy subjects which I wasn’t quite ready to read about yet. I’ll definitely pick this up later just not anytime soon.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
One of my favourite reads of the year. So moving and emotional i simply cannot express my love for this book. I have a review up for this so you can check out more of my thoughts about it here
AND THATS ITTT. I read kinda less in September but I’m honestly not too disappointed in myself, it was a stressful month and I’m glad i at least read something! Let me know if you’d like a book review for any of the books mentioned above! Thanks for reading!!╰(*°▽°*)╯
