Hello everyone, and welcome back to The Bookworm’s Fantasy! I hope you’re all doing well. Today I’m going to be posting my Monthly Reads for September 2017. I didn’t manage to get much reading done in September – I had a very busy month consisting of a weeks holiday and 2 weeks work experience at Penguin (blog post coming soon). I managed to get 4 books read in September. Keep reading to find out more…
Born On A Tuesday by Elnathan John.
This was one of the books set for my English Literature “Last Year’s Novels” module. It was one of the better books I’ve read for the module, and I particularly started to enjoy it towards the end. It started off a bit too slow for my liking, and it continued that way throughout much of the novel, but it really began to pick up pace towards the end. A fairly good read.
Everything But The Truth by Gillian McAllister.
I won’t say too much about this book now, as I’ve already reviewed it in full here. This is one of the best Thrillers I’ve ever read, and it’s my first five-star read for a while now. It captivated me right from the start, and it just got better and better as the book progressed. A must-read for Thriller lovers.
Iron Towns by Anthony Cartwright.
This was another book set for my English Literature “Last Year’s Novels module. I can understand why some people may like this book, but it really wasn’t for me. I wasn’t interested in the subject matter at all, and found the whole book pretty dull. Unless you’re a football fanatic, I wouldn’t bother picking this up.
The Woman Next Door by Yewande Omotoso.
Again, this was a required read for my English Literature “Last Year’s Novels” module. This was a decent read and I did quite enjoy parts of it, particularly towards the end of the novel where the two women discuss some of their life choices. I found the beginning pretty slow and dull, and it took a long time for me to get into it and become invested in the book.
Happy reading 🙂
