September is usually one of my lower reading months. With school starting I just don’t have the time to read as much as I would like. Even this last week, with getting ready for the start of the school year, I haven’t had the time to finish any books. Most months I get around 20 or so books done, so we will see what happens.
I get my books from a couple of sources. The ones pictured above are the September reads I’ve committed to on Netgalley. It’s a nice mix of Tween and Teen. Netgalley, for those of you who don’t know, is a website where you can sign up to get Advanced Reader copies (ARCs) of books. They mostly want librarians, book store owners or book bloggers, but as long as you write reviews of their books and give them feed back they are happy.
I enter a lot of contests, some for books that are out, some for ARCs. So I sometimes get surprises in the mail, yeah I love surprises! I recently got the ARC for a Tween novel Hundred Percent by Karen Romano Young. So that will be on my list as well. That brings me up to 9 books!
Next I will get some from the public library and others I will purchase. These are usually the books I couldn’t get ARCs for. So far on this list is:
The Bronze Key by Holly Black and Cassandra Claire.
Wax by Gina Damico
Beauty of Darkness by Mary Pearson
A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir
A Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
Swarm By Scott Westerfeld
Frost Like Night by Sara Raasch
I had this really cool picture in my head that I was going to take for this part of the post, but with everything else going on with school, it didn’t happen. I will try to do it this weekend and add it to the post when it is done.
So that brings my grand total up to 16 books for September! I think I can do it! I may have to give up working, sleeping and eating though.
What are you reading this month? Let me know in the comments.
