September Wrap Up

September was a weird month for me. For my whole life pretty much my main September concern has been preparing for and then going back to school. I graduated in July. This is the first September of my grown up life, I guess. I celebrated by moving back home, going on holiday with my family for two weeks and then avoiding getting a job. I have however, brought a really great blazer, should an interview come around.

Seventeen-year-old me is disappointed, but not entirely surprised by twenty-two-year old me.

This month I reviewed:

Guy In Real Life – Steve Brezenoff

Feelings: Too many elf parts.

The Princess Diaries #5 – Meg Cabot

Feelings: I am just as in love with Michael Moscovitz at 22 as I was when I was 15.

Winger – Andrew Smith

Feelings: SO MANY. This book made me laugh and then broke my heart. It’s a really interesting exploration of teenage masculinity and coming of age.

Emmy and Oliver – Robin Benway

13132816

Feelings: This is one of my favourite reads of the year so far. Robin Benway seemingly effortlessly navigates really difficult issues and really cute romance.

The Rest of Us Just Live Here – Patrick Ness

The-rest-of-us-just-live--002

Feelings: A wonderful book, dealing with the common feelings of being somehow ‘less than’.

Also read this month:

Honourable Friends? Government and the Fight for Change – Caroline Lucas

Lair of Dreams – Libba Bray

Hide and Seek – Ian Rankin

Currently reading:

Why Not Me? – Mindy Kaling

(I am so in love)

  2. Sounds like you had a pretty good reading month! I think I’ll be reading Emmy & Oliver sometime in the next week. Hopefully I’ll love it as much as you did. The blurb sounds great already! I’m glad you also loved The Rest Of Us Just Live Here. I thought it was so good and can Jared please caress my hair and face right now? I’ll even make the appropriate purring sounds 😀
