Books I Read in September 📚

  1. The Improbability of Love by Hannah Mary Rothschild
    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. A story about a lost masterpiece, how it gets found, and the people that then long to possess it. About different sorts of rich people in London, mainly. Every character is well realized... including the painting itself (it has view point chapters). Great read!
  2. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Random Riggs
    ⭐️⭐️⭐️. The found pictures are a little creepy. I also found this to be somehow lacking... Good premise but somehow didn't fully satisfy.
  3. Saga, Volume 6 by Bryan K. Vaughan
    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. I love Saga let me count the ways!!!! Also my husband bought me the next chapter as a surprise gift! I'm saving it for a rainy day.
  4. Banana: the Fate of the Fruit that Changed the World by Dan Koeppel
    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. Really enjoyable read on the history and science of the banana. Definitely recommended.
  5. The Rose and the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh
    ⭐️⭐️⭐️. The sequel to The Wrath and the Dawn. I'm glad it's not a trilogy. That helped this book stay full of action. For some reason I got annoyed with the writing style in this one. It was good but I didn't love it.
  6. Pride of Baghdad by Bryan K. Vaughan
    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. This book is kind of rough. Pretty violent. But the art is great and it's a cool story.
  7. Planetfall by Emma Newman
    ⭐️⭐️⭐️. Really enjoyed this art first but then started to get frustrated with the 'mystery' and the main character. Then it ended up going in a totally unexpected direction. Read if you want to read about a future in which 3D printers are essential to society.
  8. Rice, Noodle, Fish by Matt Goulding
    Quit/skimmed. The writing was unbearably pretentious. The pictures were gorgeous and some of the little picture guides were cool.
  9. The Gift of Fear by Gavin de Becker
    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. As I hoped, this book was fairly empowering. The main message is to trust your instincts which my self defense instructor also emphasized.
  10. Geek Love by Katherine Dunn
    Quit. I got about 80 pages in but found it too disturbing to continue.
