September Reads {2020}

Today I’m sharing my September reads with Steph and Jana’s monthly Show Us Your Books linkup. Last month I completed my Goodreads reading challenge goal of 75 books. Unfortunately, my reading has slowed way down. In September I only read 5 books, but luckily, they were mostly great reads. Here are my September reads:

3 Stars


An Unwanted Guest by Shari Lapena – (Suspense/Thriller, August 2018) – A series of guests arrive at an Inn just as a blizzard hits. As guests begin to wind up dead, the goal becomes to survive the weekend. I’ve read several other of Lapena’s books but this one wasn’t a winner for me.

4 Stars


28 Summers by Elin Hilderbrand – (Contemporary Fiction, June 2020) Girl inherits a house on Nantucket. Girl meets boy. Girl and boy then have a one weekend a year affair at said house for 28 summers. I’ve only read a couple of Hilderbrand’s books and haven’t loved most of them. This was a surprisingly enjoyable read. I got this summer read finished right before the official start of fall!

The Last Flight by Julie Clark – (Suspense/Thriller, June 2020) Two women, who both want to disappear and start their lives over, meet at an airport and end up switching plane tickets. Their decisions ultimately have huge consequences. This was an enjoyable suspense read that had me invested in the lives of both women.

35887567. sy475

On the Come Up by Angie Thomas – (YA – February 2019) – A poor, teenage girl, with a lot of family drama, struggles to become a rapper. This was a great read, but I just didn’t love it as much as The Hate U Give.

40670312. sy475

The One by John Marrs – (Thriller/Science Fiction – March 2018) A company has a DNA test that will match you with your perfect partner. However, is it too good to be true? Overall, I found this to be an enjoyable suspense read.

  1. The One sounds good! I’ve been meaning to read The Last Flight all year- definitely have to get to it. And 28 Summers was such a pleasant read!

  2. I liked The One and An Unwanted Guest fine.
    Loved On the Come Up and 28 Summers. I am also not a typical Elin H fan but really liked that book.

  3. I really enjoyed The One too. It’s been awhile so hopefully I am not confusing it with another book but it had a bunch of “true” love stories. I remember enjoying some a lot more and wishing there was an entire book just about them.

  4. I have The One waiting for me on my Kindle! The premise sounds so intriguing. I think I liked On The Come Up a teeny bit more than THUG, but really enjoyed both. I hope she comes out with some more soon!

  5. I’ve only heard of 28 Summers and On the Come Up from your list this month. I got The Hate U Give and On the Come Up in a box set, but haven’t read the second one yet. Someday… Thanks for sharing and enjoy your month 🙂

  6. I loved On the Come Up too, but I also enjoyed The Hate U Give more. I’ve been wanting to read The One for so long now, I really need to get to that one! So many books…
