2. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

I decided to pick this up on audio because last month, I listened to Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn and really enjoyed it. I’ve always heard about Gone Girl and I know people love this book so I wasn’t worried about not liking it. I’m new into thrillers and I found this book SO entertaining. The audiobook is magnificent. I ended up giving it five out of five stars. ★★★★★

So many people love this book but I just wasn’t feeling it. While it’s atmospheric and the characters are somewhat interesting, the plot bored me to death. I also found it kind of predictable. I gave it three stars! ★★★

6. The Testaments by Margaret Atwood

I cracked open this book the moment I picked it up from the bookstore. I got it on release day and absolutely devoured it. I found this one way more entertaining than the first one! It might be an unpopular opinion, but I like it more than the first. If you want to know more of my thoughts, here’s my review! ★★★★★

This was another one of my audiobook picks this month and it was so good! It’s a newer release so I’m shocked I got it at my library so quickly but it was lovely. I can’t wait for the next book! ★★★★

8. Kingdom Of Ash by Sarah J. Maas

33590260 What a finale. I’m so sad that these books are over. I’ve been reading them as they released and it’s been one hell of a ride. I’ll miss Chaol, Dorian, and Aelin so much. Until I read it again! I gave this book five out of five stars. Absolutely excellent. ★★★★★

9. The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

I’m so glad I finally got to reading this book. It’s on my Fall TBR so I planned to read it but wow, it was amazing. I love Angie Thomas’ writing so much and I already have On the Come Up checked out from the library. This should be required reading. I, of course, gave it five out of five stars. ★★★★★

10. Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell

Screen Shot 2019-09-30 at 11.26.33 PMI have a lot of feelings about this book but I can’t really put them into words right now. I might write a mini review but as for now, know that I did love it but I just have minor issues with it. I missed Rainbow’s writing so much and reading this was such a relief. It was the writing I love dearly and also, Simon and Baz. I ended up giving it four out of five stars. ★★★★

  1. I read Pumpkinheads and If We Were Villains, both were such wonderful reads! Glad to see you enjoyed Pumpkinheads as much as I did. The Testament and the Handmaid’s Tale is on my TBR for the future, but not this month. I am actually currently reading Wayward Sons right now, so far it is cute. I hope your October reading is awesome!

  2. Wow! I envy your September TBR. So perfectly in brand. I’m so intimidated by Imaginary Friend because it’s so long but I really hope it makes my October TBR. I’m also super excited for Tunnel of Bones. 😬
