September Wrap-Up

Well, what a month September has been! Back to school with my new class and new routines! It’s been so fantastic to be with a class again, teaching them in person rather than on-line BUT it is so very exhausting which has affected my reading this month. I have loved sharing so many new books with my new class and recommending books to each child. They are loving our class read, The Land of Roar, which I’ve almost finished with them. I have been trying hard to get all work completed during the week, so I don’t work at weekends which has been mostly successful so far.

Books I’ve read:

I’ve read 14 books this month which includes 9 physical books, 2 e-books and 3 audiobooks.

Physical books:

I bought The Ship of Shadows, The Missing Barbegazi and The Children of Swallow Fell. The others were sent on behalf of publishers in exchange for honest reviews.


I read After the War on Borrowbox and I downloaded Witch to my Kindle after being approved on NetGalley.


I listened to all of these on Borrowbox. They are all very different but very, very good and highly recommended.

Books I’ve bought:

I’ve treated myself to quite a lot of books this month even though it might take me a while to get round to reading them! 1st October was a huge publication day, but a lot of the books published then could be picked up slightly earlier so I didn’t wait! I’ve just counted, and I bought 17 books this month. I really need another bookcase as I buy books faster than I can read them!


I’m trying hard not to request too many books on NetGalley. My Feedback Ratio is currently at 88%. I have 4 books to read on my NetGalley shelf although I have wished for Amari and the Night Brothers by B.B. Alston so fingers crossed, but not holding out much chance I fear! Books currently on my NetGalley Shelf to read:

Physical books sent by publishers/review sites for review:

I’ve read and written reviews for all of these now, apart from The Incredible Record Smashers which I just received this week.

Reviews posted:

  1. The International Yeti Collective – Shadowspring
  2. Skeleton Keys The Legend of Gap-tooth Jack
  3. Grimm
  4. Emily Knight I am … Becoming (Blog Tour)
  5. The Key to Finding Jack
  6. The Ship of Shadows (MG Takes on Thursday)
  7. Anisha Accidental Detective: School’s Out
  8. The Humans
  9. The Midnight Swan

Completing my September Wrap-Up makes me realise I maybe got more reading and reviewing completed than I thought I had which I’m really pleased about. Roll on a good October reading month!

How has your reading month been? Have you read any of these?
