Wrap Up: September 2020

Hello readers, another month is finished and finally is Autumn!! My favorite season of the year!

In September I managed to read 11 books, with a return, one book DNF.

5 stars:

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Nightmare was an ARC I received via Booksirens: it’s a horror really dark and violent, I couldn’t put it down.

Demon road was a surprise for me, because usually I don’t like urban fantasy! I already have the second book on my shelf.

Carnival of monsters was even better than the first book, read my review here!

4 stars:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The adventures of Sophie Mouse are my comfort read this year, you know what I mean? They’re delicate, and lovely and soft, and I need these type of story, every now and then.

3 stars:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Monarchs of the sea is a non-fiction book about cephalopods, really detailed, but my ARC copy was so difficult to read.

Herding Cats, because we love cats!

What if? was funny and a little bit worrying, I didn’t understand some of the most specific question about astronomy, but it was interesting.

1 star + DNF:

Rating: 1 out of 5.

I thought that The Amazing imagination machine was a fantasy middle grade, but it sounded more like YA, with 2 animals dead in the first 20 pages, so I DNF it.

My best friend’s exorcism was a delusion for me, I didn’t like the violence against the animals, the racism hidden beneath the 1980s setting, and other things.

The house with chicken legs has a beautiful cover, an interesting plot, but I couldn’t stand the main character.

The alchemy of murder is an historical crime fiction featuring Nellie Bly and Jules Verne that needs a good editor. Oh, and to remove the romance from the plot, thank you.

That was my reading month, how was yours?
