Can you believe that September is already over?? We are going to blink and it is going to be Christmas.
I mean…The Target Dollar section is full of holiday cheer….
ANYHOO. As of yesterday, I am 1 book away from my Goodreads yearly goal of 100 books this year.( if you want to learn HOW to read that many books read more about it here )
Should I set a new goal? I mean there are about 25 books in my Kindle library alone that I haven’t read yet and we won’t even count the many many many book stacks of unread books laying around my house.
If i just read some of the UNREAD books in my house by the end of the year, I would at least be at 150.
ANYWAY. I read 10 books last month, one a audible/hybrid re-read but it counts. LOL.
Amazingly, in the last two months, I have read a lot of 5 star reads, which I hardly EVER give. I’ve included two of them on this list.

5 Books I Read in September
People Person By Candice Carty-Williams
I was not expecting to enjoy this book as much as I did. Slight spoiler but the blurb on the book is ABSOLUTELY misleading! I thought we were getting a family drama ( which it is) but it was with a twist of How to Get Away with Murder or My sister is a serial killer type vibes
But all in all, the characters were all likable, even the one that got on my nerves the most. I almost wish we had gotten more backstory on Cyril( the father) . To learn why he was the way he was. or maybe that was the point?
This book was entertaining and when I fuss at the characters while I’m reading, I consider it a good read.
Rating: 5/5 stars
Mixed Signals( Lovelight #3) By B.K. Borison
Cute! I’ve read the second book in the series and loved that one. This one was also a good cute rom. Nothing deep at all, you know where it’s going and the spice is decent.
It was the perfect weekend read for when you want something fast and entertaining.
Drunk on Love By Jasmine Guillory
Jasmine Guillory is a MUST READ for me. So I could not wait to get my hands on this book.
I hate to say it, but despite starting off with plenty of steam, this book started to drag for me in the middle! Despite starting off with intense chemistry and attraction, the relationship development felt like more of a slow-burn romance. I think that after the hot and heavy start, it was just a matter of pivoting for me the reader. I expected it to be that way the entire book but it really was a lesson in what happens when you get past the initial chemistry. Is there enough there to have an actual relationship
This was a bit spicier than her usual books, but I didn’t mind AT ALL. LOL
Yours Truly By Abby Jimenez
This was, hands down, my favorite Abby Jimenez book.
Yours Truly was one of the best actual love stories that I’ve read in awhile. A lot of Rom Com and Romance authors these days will give us a lot of sex , a few good troupes with a love story thrown in for good measure and call it a book.
But the beauty of Yours Truly is that you are so so invested in the love growing between our two characters and their families and the real life issues both of them are dealing with that the sex enhances the story.
Now, if you know me and know my reviews you know that I LOVE SPICE. LOVE IT.
So if I say that a book with ONE SPICY SCENE is one of my favorite books of the year? It must be good.
I don’t want to spoil this book for anyone yet since this won’t be published until April 2023, but let me just say PRE-ORDER it!
A Discovery Of Witches By Deborah Harkness
The Discovery of Witches Trilogy is one of my all time favorite series, and I tend to re-read it every fall.
It’s got everything you want: witches, vampires, demons, magic, romance, mystery..it’s the perfect fall read.
I chose this book for one of the Pouring Over Books Box’s so i finally own a physical copy. BUT I half listened to this one on audible as well at the same time.
Audio books make me go slower and really enjoy the story.
So what was the best book you read in September?And let me know if you read any of the ones I read last month!
