September Wrap Up |TBR? What TBR?

Hi! Today I’m showing you all the books I read in September. I did make a TBR and told you what it was, but that TBR went completely straight out the window. I didn’t read a single book that was on my TBR. Not one. I guess that’s okay, seeing that I did finish a whole stack of books anyway. I’ve just gotta make it a point to at least read one book on my TBR.

 

1. Hunger by Michael Grant

I read the last half of this book this month and LOVED it. It was the perfect second book in a series, even though it took me a bajillion years to read. There were twists and turns and almost deaths, and it was such a wild ride. I gave it 5 out of 5 stars.

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. Percy Jackson and The Sea Of Monsters

I really loved this book, and I can’t wait to read the next one. I can’t remember what the Lightning Thief was like, so I can’t compare the two, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. It had action, adventure, and more of Percy’s powers. I really did like how his powers developed and grew in this book, since it was primarily sea-based. I’d recommend reading this book, and I’m definitely continuing on when my hold comes in for the third book. I gave it 5 out of 5 stars.

 

 

 

 

3. The World’s Worst Children by David Walliams

David Walliams is such a good Children’s author, and I think it’s because his writing style is so like Roald Dahl. Roald Dahl is my favourite children’s author and was once my favourite author ever, and it’s nice to read books with his style again. This book was very funny and made me laugh quite a few times. It was extremely quick to read and had a lot of awesome illustrations. I gave this book five stars and I think you should deffo read this to your kid (if you have one. If not, just read it to yourself!). There are also two other books in this World’s Worst Children “series”, so I’m going to pick those up at some point too.

 

 

4. Lies by Michael Grant

I liked this book, but to me it felt like it was unnecessary. Not a lot happened, and everything that did could’ve happened in half the amount of pages. Don’t get me wrong, I still really enjoyed it, but I just didn’t LOVE it. I gave it 4 stars, and I’m 100% continuing on with the series. I’ve been sucked into this fandom, and there’s no leaving until I know the who, what, when, where, why and how.

 

 

 

 

 

 

5. The 91-Storey Treehouse by Andy Griffiths, Illustrated by Terry Denton

This book holds a special place in my heart because I’ve been reading the series for so many years. I love all the books in the series – and yes, I do read them out-of-order – and everything about them is great. Andy and Terry (the characters) have such a great friendship, and Andy and Terry (the real people) are so incredibly good at creating new ideas and pictures. I never want this series to end, and I gave this book 4 stars.

 

 

 

 

6. The Magic Misfits by Neil Patrick Harris

I actually wrote a review for this, so if you want to see more in-depth thoughts, click here. I thought this book was absolutely charming and I loved the friendship and familial aspects of it. I also loved how diverse it was, and how it deals with topics in a simple way. I really want to read the next book in this series, and I gave this one 4.75 stars.

 

 

 

 

 

7.  The Enormous Crocodile by Roald Dahl

This is the first audiobook I think I’ve ever listened to, so that’s cool. I also solidified my decision that audiobooks just aren’t for me. Not because this one was bad, but because I just sat on my bed and stared at my phone the entire time. On the audiobook app. Not doing anything productive. Sooo, yeah, I don’t think I’ll be listening to another one in the near future, but that’s okay. Now, back to the Enormous Crocodile. This was a very short book, only 32 pages, and it was very enjoyable. I loved Stephen Fry’s narration of the book, and all the voices he gave to the characters, and it was very good for something so short. I gave this book 4 stars, and the only thing I didn’t like about it was the fact that I couldn’t see Quentin Blake’s amazing artwork.

 

 

So those are the books I read in September. I had a great reading month, and hope you did too! Please tell me what books you read,  and I’ll see you next time with another post. Bye!

  1. Oh hey! I read Hunger in September too! Wasn’t it just so suspenseful and crazy? I loved it, but I feel like there were many times I almost had a heart attack haha. It’s too bad the next book isn’t quite as good, but I’m still definitely going to read it BECAUSE I NEED TO KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING. Anyways, great post and I hope you have a wonderful October 🙂

    1. I’ve almost finished Plague (gone #4) and it is MUCH BETTER than Lies. It’s got action, suspense and I’m loving it. So if you find that Lies was a bit meh, STICK WITH THE SERIES BECAUSE IT GETS SO MUCH BETTER! Thank you for the comment and Happy Halloween!

      1. Okay, great! I will have to keep that in mind as I read. This series is seriously amazing, isn’t it? I wonder why I don’t see more hype about it…maybe it’s just sort of old (I think the first book came out in 2000 something??)
