This is Corina with the Sunday Post. A recap of this week and …. ahem cough, cough, of last week as well.
September was a slow book month for me. I can’t really complain since my job doesn’t allow me to read as many books as I was able to read last year. So a less stressful month – book related – was strangely welcome. But with less interesting books for me being released I’ve struggled with reading slumps – yep I reached multiple reading slumps.
I joked with TJ that I’m cursed this month – again book related – I shouldn’t have said anything because now I jinxed myself. I’m discarding books left and right – and all I do is complain.
But on the other side there were some amazing books to enjoy this month….
Our September author of the month was LJ SHEN and she wrote one of my top favorites SCANDALOUS. This book gave me the much needed bookhangover and showed me that I can still be ECSTATIC about a book even in the middle of a book slump.
The second book that elated my black mood was THE LEARNING HOURS by Sara Ney. I was in book heaven right there and then. The Learning Hours was the third book in an amazing series, and she managed to turn our DOUCHEBAG world upside down with a twist that nobody saw coming – I LOVED IT!!
I also read LOGAN which put me through the most evil emotional wringer EVER!! That book had my heart aching by being tragically honest and raw. Jay Mclean has a certain way of keeping her books incredibly realistic and destroying me at the same time. I hate/love that woman.
