As we’re a few days into October, it is finally time to write about the books I read in September. I don’t know about you, but September is always the busiest month for me – school started, I worked at my school for the first half of the month, and all the while I had driving lessons. Result: not much time left for reading or blogging.
However, I did manage to read three books in their entirety and start two others. Let me tell you all about them…
Firstly, I read I Hate Everyone But You by Gaby Dunn & Allison Raskin. I also hosted a giveaway for it – congratulations to Maia for winning a copy!
This book is definitely your typical summer contemporary – it’s a light, fluffy read -, but there are a couple important topics the authors did a great job at representing.
You can read more about this book in my review.
★★★☆☆ 3.5/5 stars
Next, I read The Lost Woman by Sara Blædel, my first Nordic Noir book!
I quite enjoyed this one, I thought the plot was bold and intelligent, as well as the solving of the case. I had a tiny problem with the pace at the end, but other than that I thought it was a very nice book.

★★★★☆ 4/5 stars
Lastly, I read The Trust by Ronald H. Balson, which is a mystery book revolving around a murder.
The story is set in 20th century Ireland, and the author makes the political and social issues intertwine the the plot in a clever way.
I didn’t know what to expect going into this one, but it definitely was a pleasant surprise.

★★★★☆ 4/5 stars
Books started in September
Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake: I was very excited to get started with this series, since the second book just came out, and I read about 30 pages of it. However, I stopped reading anything at all for a while, and my interest in this book died down a bit.
For now, I’m putting it aside, but I’ll definitely pick it back up when I feel like reading it!
You by Caroline Kepnes: I started this one on the 30th of September, on the drive down to Alentejo with my family. I could not put it down for the life of me, and I only stopped at 65% when I couldn’t keep my eyes open any longer.
I have since posted my review, but I won’t talk much about it in this post, since I did finish it in October, not September.
Those are all the books I managed to read in September. On such a busy month, I’m very happy with three books, especially considering they were all 3+ star reads!
