Shameful September Wrap Up

This month I've read a shameful amount of books. I've managed to finish only 5...

The beginning of the month was really strong for me - I've managed to complete 2 books in 2 days...but after that everything went downhill...Anyway, let's get into the books I've read, shall we?!

Genre: Cyberpunk
This book is a prequel to an upcoming cyberpunk series - "A Liquid Cool", and it served that purpose perfectly. I do have a review for it which you can find here.

“Beastly” by Alex Flinn
Genre: Fantasy
I'm really surprised by this one since everybody I know says it's pretty bad, but I enjoyed it quite a lot. My full review for this book is here.

"Middlemarch" by George Eliot
Genre: Classics
This is the book that ruined my reading for the whole month. It took me 13 days to finish it. This read is not really a bad one, but it was way to descriptive for my taste. The characters were not really that appealing for me and overall I could not enjoy this book as much as I wanted to...

"The Cuckoo's Calling" by Robert Galbraith
Genre: Mystery
Rating: 4/5
Yes!!! I've finally read this book. I enjoy well written mystery books and Rowling didn't fail with yet another genre. She is perfect! Her characters were well developed as always and the outcome of the story was really least for me. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series...which should happen this month.

"Burr" by Gore Vidal
Genre: Historical Fiction
I must say that I did not expect liking this book as much as I did. I'm just not into politics that much. Something about the way they were written, makes them so easy to read and enjoy, even if the subject is not your cup of tea. I admit that I've read this book rather slow, but I still enjoyed it.
If you are into politics, I highly recommend you checking it out.

Those were my reads this month. Have you read any of the books mentioned and if you did do you agree with my opinions. Any thoughts are appreciated :)


  1. Don't feel so bad. I only read two books in September. I've been having really bad months lately. Hopefully it gets better.

    1. Thank you ^.^ I so envy you for reading "The Rest of Just Live Here" by Patrick Ness.
