Hello, friends, happy September! I don’t know about you guys, but I am beyond ready for fall. Changing leaves, cozy sweaters, hot apple cider, and spooky reads… I love it so much! And, even though I said I was giving up on planning a monthly TBR, am I standing in front of you (metaphorically), with another TBR. This time, I asked my Instagram friends to choose the books I’ll be reading in September. Partly, because I’m super indecisive when it comes to choosing something to read, but mostly for fun! Even though I chose the books initially, it was a lot of fun watching the votes come in, and I definitely ended up with a stack of books that I probably would not have picked on my own. In no particular order, here is my September TBR!
The first book I’ll be reading in September is Wicked Saints by Emily Duncan. I picked this one up solely based on the cover, and I don’t know too much about it, honestly! The synopsis definitely has my attention though, so I’m pretty excited to get around to it.
The next book I’ll be reading this month is I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson. This has been on my TBR shelf for years, and while I’ve always been interested in reading it, it’s never taken priority until now! From the description, this sounds like a hard-hitting YA contemporary, which I’ve been loving this year.
I’ll also be reading Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn. I’ve really been enjoying thrillers this year, and this book sounds right up my alley. Again, I don’t know too much about it, since I like going into thrillers with as little information as possible, but I’m excited to read it nonetheless!
The final book chosen for me by my friends was Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor. If you can’t tell by this selection, my TBR is FULL of backlist titles, and this one is no exception. It’s been on my list for a while, and I’m a big fan of fantasy, so I’m glad this one made the list!
Some other books that I’ll be attempting to read, chosen on my own, are Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas, The Vanishing Stair by Maureen Johnson, and City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare. I try to give myself lots of flexibility in my monthly TBR lists since I know that I’m usually a mood reader, but this was a fun experiment to see what my friends would have me read, and I’m excited about my September TBR!
Feel free to drop the books you’re reading this month in the comments, I’m always looking for recommendations and I’d love to hear about what you guys are reading! Stay safe, and until next time, happy reading!
