I have no idea how I am already writing another one of these book round-ups. Where did the last month go? September completely got away from me and now we’re in the last quarter of the year and I am so grateful. This year has been anything but expected and the more months we put between March, the more I feel like I am adapting to what is my new normal. My new normal includes a lot more time for reading, for living in loungewear, for cooking and baking, and most important to focus on what really matters.
As I said, last month seemed to fly by so I was surprised when I went to write this that I actually HAD read a good handful of books.
What I Read in September
Majesty: This is the sequel to American Royals and it did not disappoint. The series is based on the premise that instead of a President, George Washington became the King of the United States. The book is set in what would be modern-day America if we had a royal family. I LOVED the sequel because I didn’t expect any of it. I had so many ideas in my head and Katharine McGee kept me on my toes. Hoping that there will be a third book in the series.
Big Friendship: A book that everyone should read. This book dives into the intricacies of female friendships especially the BIG ones and why they are so important and yet widely overlooked. We all know that long-lasting marriages take effort and time, but what about friendships? I cannot recommend this book to enough people.
Party of Two: My real feel-good book of the month! Party of Two is a romance that will sweep you off your feet. Dating is the last thing Olivia, who just started her own law firm, has in mind but fate has different plans.
Transcendent Kingdom: I don’t even have words for how great this book is. I honestly just ordered it because it had gotten a lot of buzz and the cover was very pretty and I am so glad I did. This book is described as “A push-and-pull between science and faith, as a child of Ghanaian immigrants copes with loss and unanswered questions.”
I have so many books in my to be read pile that I am not shopping for any new books until at least November because I love to start the year with clear bookshelves.
