September 1: Wrapping up Walk on Earth a Stranger which is a delightful book. I have slotted out my next 16 books to read. I’m not sure if I’ll stick to the order but after focusing on ARCs last month I really need to get back to other obligation related reading this the strict rotation here.
September 8: Started the month strong but it couldn’t last. Dreamstrider was interesting but gosh it did not work for me.
September 14: My feelings about Dumplin’ wound up being very complicated. Still processing Unmade. Squeezing in The Girl Who Could Not Dream since I forgot to add it to the schedule at the start of the month and need to read it before the release.
September 16: The girl who could not dream was a breezy, fast read and a lot of fun. Onto The Secret of Hollow Places and, guys, I’m only on page 20 and I already have A LOT of questions.
September 20: Not sure how I feel about Briar Rose. I always think I will like Jane Yolen’s books but I am almost never floored. Something worth filing away I guess. Next on deck is Updraft. I don’t know how many more books I can read this month but I think I’m going to try to stick to the rotation I laid out and carry any unread books into my October TBR because these are all titles I really need/want to knock out.
September 21: So. Updraft. Maybe a case of a book I should have researched more before requesting based on the cover? It was fun and will appeal to a lot of people but it wasn’t exactly what I wanted or expected. Onward to Six of Crows!
