Smaller reading wrap-up this month, but I tackled the beast known as The Goldfinch.
Get a Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert – ♥♥♥♥♥
Heartstopper, Vol. 1 by Alice Oseman – ♥♥♥♥♥
The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt – ♥♥♥♥
Her Royal Highness by Rachel Hawkins – ♥♥♥♥
The Goldfinch is a hefty book—coming in at 771 pages. Not the longest book I’ve ever read (that belongs to Harry Potter, of course), but it’s definitely a close second. Donna Tartt is an incredible writer and there is no doubt she deserved the Pulitzer for Fiction. I’ve had this book for a long time but I was quite intimidated by it’s size. Then once they announced the movie, it pushed me to finally read it—even though the movie got such terrible reviews (I’ll see it someday). Later this month, I’ll write an entire post about Get a Life, Chloe Brown because I have SO MANY FEELINGS on this book.
The Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher – ♥♥♥♥
What a gem! I love Carrie Fisher, and although I’ve never seen the original Star Wars, I found this to be a fun read, especially with Fisher reading the audiobook.
State of the Union by Nick Hornby – ♥♥♥♥♥
Scars Like Wings by Erin Stewart – ♥♥♥♥♥
I’ll read anything by Nick Hornby writes. I know that this a short form TV show on SundanceTV, but I can picture it more as a play. It was interesting to see the disillusion and the reunification of a marriage in the span of 132 pages. Linked above, I have the gushy review of Scars Like Wings—if I rehash it again, I’ll cry and no one needs that.
Well, that’s it for this month. I think it was more quality over quantity which is always a good thing. What’s the best thing you read in September?
