You guys, it’s finally starting to feel like fall around here! The leaves on the maples outside my office are turning those beautiful reds, oranges, and yellows and dropping at an astonishing rate. Hockey season is officially underway, and this month I discovered a whole genre of Halloween/Fall-themed books on Amazon. Which I will cover next month for my #OctoberReads. But for now, let’s get into my #SeptemberReads!
You know, because I mentioned it like 20 million times, I set a reading goal to tick off 100 books this year and I surpassed that goal back in June, I think it was. I wrapped up September with 147 books read for the year so far, and I think I’m going to hit 200 by the end of the year. I’m not entirely sure what this says about me as a person, but I also don’t particularly care! I didn’t smash it out of the park by any means in my books consumed last month, but I did manage a few good reads in there.
- Running Wild by KA Tucker
This is the fourth book in the Simple Wild series by KA Tucker and it featured Marie Lehr, the Alaskan veterinarian story this time around. Faced with more than one clock ticking, you’ll find out if she gets her happily ever after.
- The Brood by Willa Nash
Penned under one of my favorite authors’ pen names, The Brood takes us back to Calamity, Montana. What happens when the grumpy solitude-loving mountain man gets his marker called in? Romance for certain.
- The Asylum for Wayward Victorian Girls by Emilie Autumn
I’m not sure if I came across this cover on Goodreads or on Pinterest, but it intrigued me enough to read. Are you slowly discovering one’s descent into madness? Or is she the only sane one there?
- How to Fake-Date a Vampire by Linsey Hall
In the second book in the Charming Cove series, we take a look at what happens when an apprentice witch agrees to fake a relationship with the local vampire millionaire.
- The Bitterroot Inn by Devney Perry
I took it back to the first series I read by Devney Perry and re-read this book. Reading about Maisy overcoming her fears and getting her happy ever after is always a good time.
Next, a small run of Lucy Score authored books
- Things We Left Behind
In the final (??) book in the Knockemout series, we finally get the story behind Lucian and Sloane!
- By a Thread
After getting fired from her pizza parlor job, Ally gets a bit of a gift from a fairy godmother of sorts. And finds herself in a whirlwind romance with the fairy godmother’s grumpy son. Who just so happens to be her boss. And maybe not so grumpy underneath those layers.
- Whiskey Chaser
Faced with a neighbor trying to fix himself, certified tom-boy Scarlett doesn’t let his uptight sensibilities deter her. But when the past kicks its way out of a trunk, can they manage their unlikely romance?
- Sidecar Crush by Claire Kingsley
You guys know I love a good series, and the Bootleg Springs one doesn’t disappoint! Authored by Lucy Score and Claire Kingsley, we learn all about the Bodines, and their mysteries, and watch them all fall in love. Admittedly, this was the second time I read this series, so I skipped books 3, 4, and 5 and read book 6 at the beginning of October. But the not-so-long-forgotten crush between Jamison and Leah Mae is too good to pass up.
So, yeah my #SeptemberReads were pretty romance-focused. With a little psychological thriller thrown in. October has been a bit more diverse in what I’ve read, but I clearly love a good happy-ending story. Let me know if any of these books make their way to your fall and winter reading lists!
