Monthly Book Wrap Up | September

monthly-book-wrapup-BANNER

Can someone please tell me what in the world is going on?! September just came and went in a flash! It felt like only a week ago that I put up my August Wrap Up and my September TBR! And yet, here we are once again with another round of Monthly Wrap Up posts! My goodness, before you know it, Christmas will be here! How will I ever be able to keep up?!

How Many Books Did I Complete From My TBR?

Cloudwish by Fiona Wood

The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J Maas

Heir of Fire by Sarah J Maas

Queen of Shadows by Sarah J Maas

The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson

Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi

Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare

I read 4/7 books from my September TBR! While I feel very happy about the four books that I read this month, I was very sad that I was unable to read the last three! But have no fear, we still have another month to get these books read. And I promise myself that in the month of October, these books will HOPEFULLY get read. This all depends on the ARCS I receive and still need to read. 

Of course, I cannot leave this post at that. I have to tell you what I thought about these books, at least in a small, summarising paragraph! Plus… I never pass up the opportunity to fangirl and promote the Throne of Glass series. (My FAVOURITE series, might I add?

Let’s go!


Cloudwish by Fiona Wood

24248906

Cloudwish was an eARC, approved to me by Netgalley. I really enjoyed it as the first book of the month that I read! It’s at best, a light, fun contemporary that centers around a romance – a very strange, insta-lovey romance! 

However, despite that, it’s a great novel to read if you’re loking for something light and carefree. It does deal nicely with some deeper, societal issues. It addresses and shows the lives of refugees who migrated to Australia. Surprisingly, it depicts some of the horrors that people part of this social group experienced, and got me to shed a tear! 

I gave this book 3 out of 5 stars!

The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J Maas

And here begins the fangirling. Now you must know by now, just how much the Throne of Glass series means to me. If you have NOT seen my tweets about Queen of Shadows, don’t worry, you’re going to get a taste of them very soon… But for now, I digress!

The Assassin’s Blade is a series of bound-up novellas containing the story of the life of Celaena before she came to be in the situation she was in, in Throne of Glass. 

Every single novella in this book was amazing. Not only were they fantastic small adventures, they all connect to the main plot. And with two more books left in the series, I’m still in the process of making those connections! 

The highlight of this book? SAM. HOLY GODS. Sam, my baby. Even though I knew his fate, because it’s revealed plainly in the Throne of Glass series (which you must read before reading this), I cried like a damn baby nonetheless. Sam was endgame guys. He was… 

Obviously, I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars.


Heir of Fire by Sarah J Maas

20613470

I’d be crazy if I didn’t completely love this book the second time around. Of course I loved it! I almost adored it even more than I should. I am positive that I cried twice as much than the first time I read this book. 

My feels for Rowaelin were so totally filled to the brim that I went into Queen of Shadows with an aching heart for more! IF YOU ARE NOT CONVINCED TO READ THE THRONE OF GLASS SERIES YET, THAN JUST YOU WAIT….

I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars. Again, obviously.

Queen of Shadows by Sarah J Maas

18006496

I finished this book a few days ago, and HOW THE HELL WILL I BE ABLE TO REVIEW THIS BOOK?! UGH. IT WAS FABULOUS GUYS. 

I was left in a pile of mushy, sobbing with happiness, feels. A puddle of feels guys. I feel like this book will set me on the most epic book hangover ever. 

Sarah J Maas just knocked this book way out of the water. It was the most incredible thing I have ever read. It no longer just felt like another book, but it was like seeing a movie playing before me in my own head! Holy freaking moly. The ending was the most spectacular thing I have ever read.

If I talk any more about this, I think I might explode. One more thing. ROWAELIN IS THE LOVE OF MY FREAKING LIFE. THANK YOU SARAH J MAAS. Okay, I’m done. 

I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars. And I would give it 1000 out of 5 stars if that was possible. 

Shamefully, I still have not written a review! Hold on guys, okay, hold on. 


And there you go! My Sarah J Maas-filled bookish wrap up! I hope you are running to the bookstores to pick up your new copies of Throne of Glass, and if you have already read it, I hope you are dropping everything to re-read the series *wink*. 

What books did you finish this month?

What was your top book of the month?

  1. Hey Josie! Everyone says the Throne of Glass series is really good. It’s on my TBR. At first I picked it up and then put it down, because the book was so humongous and daunting. Anyways, how do you get this to be underneath a page, like for example, this post is under Monthly Book Wrap Ups which is a subpage of Book Blog. How do you make subpages and put your posts under them?

    Love and books,

    • Hi Veda! You MUST read Throne of Glass, seriously its amazing. But only read it when you feel up to it, don’t force yourself to.

      Okay so you know how to put blog posts into certain categories, right? Well, create categories for your blog posts e.g. look at how I have my book review page (it’s actually a category). You go to where you can find Customize but instead of clicking on that, click on “Menu”.
      If you still can’t get it to work, let me know and I could always do it for you! 😊

  2. Is it bad that I’m still hoping that Sam is secretly alive??? I NEED HIM TO BE ALIVE. I ship Celaena/Aelin more with Sam than with Rowan to be honest. If he really is still alive, Rowan will be yours though 😉 😛

  3. Great Wrap UP! Looks like all your September is filled with Throne of glass series.That’s really amazing! Now I really look forward to your thoughts on the final empire and unravel Me. Both are pretty much amazing books and I hope you enjoy reading them. 😀

  4. This entire year pretty much flew by, lol! 🙂
    4 out of 7 isn’t bad!
    I think in November I might finally pick up Crown of Midnight and get on with the series.
    Hopefully you’ll get tons more done this month!

  5. I also read Heir of Fire and Queen of Shadows this week 🙂 I have actually agreed with myself not to review them because a) they are in the middle of a series and b) I want people to go in not knowing anything! Also, I really liked your post- short and sweet. It has convinced me to get back into doing monthly wrap ups 🙂

  6. I love your enthusiasm for that series. I will try it some day. And 4 books is a good number, especially with everything else you have going on! And also when they were great reads. 🙂

    • I know right 😞 I still almost cry thinking about it, honestly it kinda haunts me, it’s so sad!
      Oh indeed Rowan is a whole different subject 😉 Of course if Sam ever came back and Aelin claimed him, I’m stealing Rowan… (but that’s never gonna happen *sob*)

      No! It’s my first time reading it! I have read Clockwork Angel and need to read the rest of the series since I have all of them on my shelves now! EEP should I put it on the top? I have two arcs to finish though… *nervous face*

      • You’ll definitely want to marathon Clockwork Prince and Clockwork Princess! I say read your ARCs first because you’ll be so hungover after Clockwork Princess that you won’t be able to pick up anything else… or give it a proper rating because everything will seem crap in comparison. HAHAHA

        I know Sarah J Maas said that Sam was 1000% not coming back… but I still kind of have hope 😀

      • Okay, I’m taking your advice! I’m so excited I might fly through my ARCS this weekend! 😂
        Oh I have hope too… Like can you imagine is Aelin gets hands on all three Wrydkeys? She could like, open the realm of the dead or something 😱 (is that even possible? 😂)
