Wrap Up: September 2021

Hello readers! My favorite month of the year is finally arrived, I’m so excited, Halloween is coming!

In September I’ve read 9 books with 1 DNF. I also lowered my Goodreads challenge from 140 to 130 books.

5 stars:

Give me all the historical fiction crime books set in Scotland!! An amazing debut of a series, The Anatomist’s Wife has captured my attention and now I want to read all the installment in this series.

4 stars:

A Whale in Paris is a lovely historical middle grade about the war and the friendship between a girl and a lonely whale trapped in the Sein.

Under the oak tree is a manhwa so romantic! Yes, sometimes I read a romantic story, I know you are stunned by this fact.

Another great historical middle grade is The Vanishing trick, a dark fairytale similar to Coraline, very well written.

3 stars:

A lady in the smoke is a historical crime fiction involving a train accident, with a headstrong main character and a hint of romance, but it will gain some points with less pages.

The tutor is M/M historical romance with a gothic setting, two children without a mother and a dark presence in the house.

1 star + DNF:

Tim Specter has great potential: a detective specialized to treat ghosts has to investigate the ghost of a hanged butler… but the writing was horrible.

A shadow on the lens has a wonderful cover, seriously, I’m in love with this cover, and the story is intriguing, with the beginning of the photography, a murder, a ghost who appears only on photo… but again, the writing was poor, focused only on the description of the landscape, and not on the characters.

The eye of Zeus is the DNF of the month: it’s a copy of Percy Jackson, the same scenes, the same monsters. No thanks, there’s only one Percy.

And that’s all, be prepared for a month of ghostly post!
