September Wrap Up

Hello Bookworms!

Are you ready for Fall & Halloween like I am?? Hope you had some good reads this month! I had some highs and lows, but here’s a recap of what I read this month:

See any titles you’ve read or have on your TBR?

THE SEVEN DEATHS OF EVELYN HARDCASTLE BY STUART TURTON

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

MY LADY JANE BY CYNTHIA HAND, BRODI ASHTON & JODI MEADOWS

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

THE LAST TIME I LIED BY RILEY SAGER

⭐⭐ (DNF)

THE WAITER BY MATIAS FALDBAKKEN

⭐⭐

I don’t think I was the right audience for this particular book. You’d have to be someone who works and has a passion for the food industry.

What I liked..

I found “The Pig” (Graham) entertaining.

What didn’t work..

The waiter seemed to get lost in his own thoughts and would often ramble, making for a slow read.

** Special thanks to Simon & Schuster Canada for my copy **

Sorry this didn’t work out for me. 😞

August Beachy Wrap Up

Here in Ontario, Canada our summer is very short, which means we only have 2 good months of hanging poolside or being beach bums. Having said that, my theme for July & August was Summer Romance.

So without further ado, here is my list and recommended reads:

Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan

Eleanor had a long-held theory about men. She truly believed that for most men, all that talk of “being in love” or “finding the right one” was absolute nonsense. Marriage was purely a matter of timing, and whenever a man was finally done sowing his wild oats and ready to settle down, whichever girl happened to be there at the time would be the right one

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

They aren’t love letters that someone else wrote for me; I don’t have any of those. These are ones I’ve written. There’s one for every boy I’ve ever loved—five in all

Lara Jean

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

When you’re given an opportunity to change your life, be ready to do whatever it takes to make it happen

Evelyn Hugo

Legendary by Stephanie Garber

Not everyone gets a true ending. There are two types of endings because most people give up at the part of the story where things are the worst, where the situation feels hopeless. But that’s when hope is needed most. only those who persevere can find their true ending

Dear Mrs. Bird by A.J Pearce

Dogs are like children. Noisy, trainable, but dim and likely to smell disagreeable on the arrival of guests.
