September Wrap-Up + BOOK HAUL!

Good news: I walked out of this year’s MIBF without buying anything.

Halloween’s just around the corner, and that means suspense and mystery reads for us bookworms. But before that, here’s what I’ve been doing/reading this September.

Books I’ve read this September

THREE DARK CROWNS by Kendare Blake

This book was screaming “DARK FANTASY” when I first held it. I fell slightly in love with it right then and there. NO REGRETS. Go read it!

(full review)

SINCE YOU’VE BEEN GONE by Morgan Matson

Fast-paced, funny, and entertaining, Morgan Matson does deserve the “Queen of Summer Contemporaries” title 😉

4 12

I also got the chance to attend her book signing.

(full review to come)

DEAR KILLER by Katherine Ewell

I have mixed feelings. But I’ll collect my thoughts this week for a non-spoiler review of this novel.

DNF/s

LINGER by Maggie Stiefvater

It took me a month to finish Shiver and a week to finish 2 chapters of Linger. I don’t think this series is for me.

BOOK HAULS

I told myself that I wasn’t going to buy anything at Book Outlet to save up for this year’s Manila International Book Fair.

And then I told myself that I shouldn’t buy anything at MIBF to save up for the big book sales and events that will definitely make its way this upcoming BER months.

Good news: I walked out of this year’s MIBF without buying anything.

Bad news: I went online.

It cannot be helped. I’m weak.

So…here is my Book Outlet Haul!
