Well, I have read and finished 3 books which were Harry Potter and the sorcerer’s stone by J.K Rowling, Truthwitch by Susan Dennard and last but not least, The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness. I will be linking all the reviews that I have done down below:

To sum everything up for the books I read last month will be that I loved each and every one of these books! They were marvelous and unique and yup (What?).
So, without further ado, let us get into my September To-Be-Read Piles!
September To-Be-Read Piles:
- The Ask and the Answer and Monsters Of Men by Patrick Ness
Synopsis for the first book- The Knife of Never Letting Go:
Prentisstown isn’t like other towns. Everyone can hear everyone else’s thoughts in an overwhelming, never-ending stream of Noise. Just a month away from the birthday that will make him a man, Todd and his dog, Manchee — whose thoughts Todd can hear too, whether he wants to or not — stumble upon an area of complete silence. They find that in a town where privacy is impossible, something terrible has been hidden — a secret so awful that Todd and Manchee must run for their lives.
But how do you escape when your pursuers can hear your every thought?
I read the first book last month and I really enjoyed it! I am currently reading The Ask and the Answer and Oh My Gosh, I loveeee it! It’s fantastic! You guys must read this trilogy because of how beautiful it is! Moving on:
- The Goblins of Bellwater by Molly Ringle
A contemporary romance inspired by Christina Rossetti’s eerie, sensual poem, “Goblin Market.” Four neighbors encounter sinister enchantments and a magical path to love in a small, modern-day Puget Sound town, where a fae realm hides in the woods and waters…
Most people have no idea goblins live in the woods around the small town of Bellwater, Washington. But some are about to find out.
Skye, a young barista and artist, falls victim to a goblin curse in the forest one winter night, rendering her depressed and silenced, unable to speak of what happened. Her older sister, Livy, is at wit’s end trying to understand what’s wrong with her. Local mechanic Kit would know, but he doesn’t talk of such things: he’s the human liaison for the goblin tribe, a job he keeps secret and never wanted, thrust on him by an ancient family contract.
Unaware of what’s happened to Skye, Kit starts dating Livy, trying to keep it casual to protect her from the attention of the goblins. Meanwhile, unbeknownst to Kit, Skye draws his cousin Grady into the spell through an enchanted kiss in the woods, dooming Grady and Skye both to become goblins and disappear from humankind forever.
It’s a midwinter night’s enchantment as Livy, the only one untainted by a spell, sets out to save them on a dangerous magical path of her own.
I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review! Honestly, I requested for this book mainly because of the cover! But after I read the synopsis, I was intrigued and there was a need in me to know where the story is going to go! So, of course I am going to read it this month! Can’t wait!
- Rebels and Fools by David Michael Williams
The greatest peace treaty in Altaerran history is unraveling. As civil war threatens the Continent United, two fallen Knights of Superius are forced to join the rebels they once condemned. Hounded by assassins and assailed by doubt, they flee to Capricon in search of answers — only to discover the island harbors dark secrets of its own.
Alongside a mostly reformed thief, a dethroned pirate king, a mysterious woman with a magical sword, and other would-be heroes, the fugitives encounter a sinister power that has taken root within the Alliance. If the Renegades and Knighthood can’t rise above their bitter rivalry, both factions — and the realm itself — are doomed.
I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review! I am super pump up for this book right now because this book includes Pirate Kings, Renegades and Knighthood and I love to read about those things so I cannot wait to read this book!
*Thank You, David, for sending me the book!*
- The Blood Mage by Aimee Davis
Monster. Murderer. Oathbreaker.
Three years after the events leading to the deaths of her friend and lover, twenty-one-year-old Alena Kozlov is still trying to outrun her past. But the darkness within her is not something she can simply leave behind.
The nightmares plaguing her become reality when a familiar face seeks her out in her isolated desert home bearing news that awakens all she’s tried to keep locked inside. There’s a promise she made long ago she’s determined to keep, even if it means she will have to tear what remains of herself, and her world, apart.
To save her friends, she may have to become the monster once more. But fear is not for the damned.
After really enjoying the first book in the series, I cannot not read the next book in the series because that ending for book one. OMG! That cliffhanger.
(An ARC was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Aimee, for providing me the ARC!)
- Select by Marit Weisenberg
Coming from a race of highly-evolved humans, Julia Jaynes has the perfect life. The perfect family. The perfect destiny. But there’s something rotten beneath the surface—dangerous secrets her father is keeping; abilities she was never meant to have; and an elite society of people determined to keep their talents hidden and who care nothing for the rest of humanity. So when Julia accidentally disrupts the Jaynes’ delicate anonymity, she’s banished to the one place meant to make her feel inferior: public high school.
Julia’s goal is to lay low and blend in. Then she meets him—John Ford, tennis prodigy, all-around good guy. When Julia discovers a knack for reading his mind, and also manipulating his life, school suddenly becomes a temporary escape from the cold grip of her manipulative father. But as Julia’s powers over John grow, so do her feelings. For the first time in her life, Julia begins to develop a sense of self, to question her restrictive upbringing and her family prejudices. She must decide: can a perfect love be worth more than a perfect life?
I tried reading this once, but I had to put it down because I was not in the mood for it. However, I do plan on starting it all over again because I need to do a review for it so I am going to read it this month! Two Words for this book to sum up my feelings will be: Cannot Wait!
This is the end of my September To-Be-Read list! I hope you all enjoyed it and let me know your September TBR down in the comment box below! Follow me with your email/wordpress account to get notifications when I post a new article! Bye!
