What I Read In September 2020
One To Watch – 5 stars
This was our September book club pick and I loved it. The story follows a fashion blogger who ends up on a Bachelor-esque dating show. It’s super cute and no where near as cheesy as it sounds. There is actually some depth to this book even though it is an enjoyable light read. If you’ve ever been in a relationship that you just can’t get away from, you will relate to this. It’s a good one.
Transcendent Kingdom – 5 stars
Just finished this one late last night and also loved it. This is a more serious read than what I usually find myself with, but I ended up enjoying it so much, as heartbreaking as parts are. The story follows a student who is studying behavior in mice, trying to make sense of the addition issues that plague her family. I LOVED this writing. I also loved the struggle between science and faith (and could relate to that too). This book is sad and heartbreaking, but at the same time, so good I couldn’t stop reading.
The Roommate – 3.5 stars
Complete change of pace from the above! The story follows two strangers who are complete opposites (one is sort of awkward, one is um, a… film star.. of sorts! ha!) and end up living together. I love an opposites attract story! This was a light, easy and fun read – and definitely on the steamy side. I really liked it and it was nice to get lost in something sort of mind numbingly easy for a few days!
The Heir Affair – 4 Stars
Oooh I was so excited about this! This is the sequel to The Royal We which I loved so much! It’s considered royal fan-fiction and I mean, who can say no to that? I did enjoy this but ddn’t love it anywhere near as much as The Royal We. I also read that so long ago that I found myself having to go back and kind of re-read parts of it (which was fun!). I think it’s crazy how much as happened in the actual royal family between the first book and the second. If you loved The Royal We, you”ll enjoy this. As a note, you should read The Royal We first!

I reread the Royal We before the Heir Affair and I felt like it made the Heir Affair a better book somehow?
I just finished Beach Read and LOVED it. Read Writers and Lovers! and Rodham! And the Glass Hotel!
Agreed- the Heir Affair was good but nowhere close to Royal We! I think One to Watch and The Guest List were my favorite reads from September!
One to Watch and The Heir Affair were both such fun and engaging reads! I’m on the library wait list for Transcendent Kingdom and cannot wait until its my turn to borrow it – I have heard nothing but praise!
I just finished The Storyteller’s Secret by Sejal Badani and it was excellent.
I’m a librarian so I love book talks! The Roomate is on my TBR list, and this month I read Blood & Honey, Red Hood, Raybearer, Mexican Gothic, and Everything Inside. All pretty decent, some had my attention and then possibly had me (wanting) to throw the book across the rooms, but those books always lead to the best discussions :)
