September Wrap-up and October TBR


Hey guys!! How has your month been?

Mine could have been a bit better than it was. I’m starting to read a bit more but it has been a slow progress. I’ve been dealing with some other unexpected things on the side and reading as been difficult to incorporate in my routine. But hopefully next month is a bit better.

Check out what I’ve read this month:

September Wrap-up

TOP book of the month:

Before the Devil Breaks You was probably the best of the month. I love this series and how thrilling and full of life each book is. They are also perfect for some spooky vibe as we near October!

Really Enjoying both of these!

I’m now in book 4 of Dune and has been a surprise for me since I’m not the biggest fan of Sci-fi.

A Cosy Christmas at Bridget’s Bicycle Bakery is an unsolicited ARC I got and am definitely enjoying!

Two best friends. Ten summer trips. One last chance to fall in love. 

Poppy and Alex. Alex and Poppy. They have nothing in common. She’s a wild child; he wears khakis. She has insatiable wanderlust; he prefers to stay home with a book. And somehow, ever since a fateful car share home from college many years ago, they are the very best of friends. For most of the year they live far apart—she’s in New York City, and he’s in their small hometown—but every summer, for a decade, they have taken one glorious week of vacation together.

Until two years ago, when they ruined everything. They haven’t spoken since.

Poppy has everything she should want, but she’s stuck in a rut. When someone asks when she was last truly happy, she knows, without a doubt, it was on that ill-fated, final trip with Alex. And so, she decides to convince her best friend to take one more vacation together—lay everything on the table, make it all right. Miraculously, he agrees.

Now she has a week to fix everything. If only she can get around the one big truth that has always stood quietly in the middle of their seemingly perfect relationship. What could possibly go wrong?

From the New York Times bestselling author of Beach Read, a sparkling new novel that will leave you with the warm, hazy afterglow usually reserved for the best vacations.

Alex and Poppy are the complete opposite but that never mattered, they bond on a drive to their mutual hometown and something just clicks. After that they are the best of friends, until one day, that wasn’t true anymore. After over a decade they maintained that friendship tight but two years ago everything changed. Alex and Poppy haven’t talked since. But that doesn’t mean they forgot each other. Poppy is miserable about it and on a whim decides to just contact Alex, and proposes a Summer vacation to get back what they’ve lost.

Across the Green Grass Fields Review

Across the Green Grass Fields by Seanan McGuire
Series: Wayward Children #6
Publisher: Tordotcom
Published January 12th 2021
Genres: Fantasy, YA, Novella
Pages: 174
Format: Hardback
Buy: Book Depository | Amazon

A young girl discovers a portal to a land filled with centaurs and unicorns in Seanan McGuire’s Across the Green Grass Fields, a standalone tale in the Hugo and Nebula Award-wining Wayward Children series.

“Welcome to the Hooflands. We’re happy to have you, even if you being here means something’s coming.”

Regan loves, and is loved, though her school-friend situation has become complicated, of late.

When she suddenly finds herself thrust through a doorway that asks her to “Be Sure” before swallowing her whole, Regan must learn to live in a world filled with centaurs, kelpies, and other magical equines―a world that expects its human visitors to step up and be heroes.

But after embracing her time with the herd, Regan discovers that not all forms of heroism are equal, and not all quests are as they seem…

Welp… That was boring.

In this book we follow Regan, a 7-year-old that fills all the boxes in being a normal girl. She has two best friends until the day things changed and she had to choose sides. One of the friends is a bit different and plays with snakes and so, the other cast her aside. At 11 years old, Regan notices she isn’t like all other girls and starts worrying why. She talks to her parents who fortify all the fears she was having. She is intersex. No matter how supportive the parents are and how much they love her, different is different. And different is bad. That’s when she finds a door that takes her from one world to another. The Hooflands!

While We Were Dating Review

While We Were Dating by Jasmine Guillory
Series: The Wedding Date #6
Publisher: Berkley Books
Published July 13th 2021
Genres: Contemporary, Adult Fiction, Romance
Pages: 192
Format: Paperback
Buy: Book Depository | Amazon

Two people realize that it’s no longer an act when they veer off-script in this sizzling romantic comedy by New York Timesbestselling author Jasmine Guillory.

Ben Stephens has never bothered with serious relationships. He has plenty of casual dates to keep him busy, family drama he’s trying to ignore and his advertising job to focus on. When Ben lands a huge ad campaign featuring movie star Anna Gardiner, however, it’s hard to keep it purely professional. Anna is not just gorgeous and sexy, she’s also down to earth and considerate, and he can’t help flirting a little…

Anna Gardiner is on a mission: to make herself a household name, and this ad campaign will be a great distraction while she waits to hear if she’s booked her next movie. However, she didn’t expect Ben Stephens to be her biggest distraction. She knows mixing business with pleasure never works out, but why not indulge in a harmless flirtation?

But their lighthearted banter takes a turn for the serious when Ben helps Anna in a family emergency, and they reveal truths about themselves to each other, truths they’ve barely shared with those closest to them.

When the opportunity comes to turn their real-life fling into something more for the Hollywood spotlight, will Ben be content to play the background role in Anna’s life and leave when the cameras stop rolling? Or could he be the leading man she needs to craft their own Hollywood ending?

This was far from what I expected? No idea what I was thinking it was going to be, but it wasn’t this…

Anna Gardiner is a beautiful and successful Hollywood star on the verge of becoming the next big thing. She started working on an ad campaign with Ben, who is in the advertising universe and climbing! This is a huge opportunity for both, so of course neither wants to make it go downhill. But what’s the problem with just flirting a little, right? I mean, Ben is gorgeous, funny and a good listener and Anna, although a star, is very down-to-earth and gorgeous, so why not? Well, Hollywood life isn’t that easy!

When Ben helps Anna with a family emergency, he learns more about her and all the anxiety issues she is dealing with and sees her as she really is, and not how magazines portray her. She ends up trusting him with more than she imagined, especially when both agree to start with a pretending relationship to help them both with the ad campaign, but is it all really fake or are there all kinds of emotions behind it?

Pizza Girl by Jean Kyoung Frazier

Pizza Girl by Jean Kyoung Frazier
Publisher: HQ
First published June 9th 2020
Genres: Contemporary, Fiction, LGBT
Pages: 192
Format: Paperback
Buy: Book Depository | Amazon

In the tradition of audacious and wryly funny novels like The Idiot and Convenience Store Woman comes the wildly original coming-of-age story of a pregnant pizza delivery girl who becomes obsessed with one of her customers.

Eighteen years old, pregnant, and working as a pizza delivery girl in suburban Los Angeles, our charmingly dysfunctional heroine is deeply lost and in complete denial about it all. She’s grieving the death of her father (who she has more in common with than she’d like to admit), avoiding her supportive mom and loving boyfriend, and flagrantly ignoring her future.

Her world is further upended when she becomes obsessed with Jenny, a stay-at-home mother new to the neighborhood, who comes to depend on weekly deliveries of pickled covered pizzas for her son’s happiness. As one woman looks toward motherhood and the other towards middle age, the relationship between the two begins to blur in strange, complicated, and ultimately heartbreaking ways.

Bold, tender, propulsive, and unexpected in countless ways, Jean Kyoung Frazier’s Pizza Girl is a moving and funny portrait of a flawed, unforgettable young woman as she tries to find her place in the world.

This was SO much more than I was initially thinking it was going to be. I knew it was going to be something I was going to enjoy but wasn’t expecting it to affect me this deep.

This book, as the title suggests, follows Pizza Girl, aka a pregnant 18 year-old girl that delivers pizzas. This story follows her while she tries to deal with too much and failing. Her alcoholic father passed away; her mother and amazing boyfriend altough very supportive are starting to be too much for her; she is pregnant; it’s all just too much, while also dealing with trying to find who she is, and what she wants. She meets Jenny, a mother to an 8yo called Adam, who orders a pizza with pickles on it, even tho it’s not on the menu. She slowly becomes obsessed with Jenny and it spirals into something complicated and dangerous.
