The Books I Read In September

Tuesday, October 15, 2019

Last month, I made one final push to get through a few books from my summer reading list. I veered from the list slightly after having been given books by friends and family and finding a few bargain books at the store, but I really tried to stick as closely to the list as possible. By summer's end (September 21) I read a total of 13 books with six of those being from my summer reading list. I didn't tackle every book on my summer reading list, but I did exceed my reading goal of 12 books.

Here are the books I read in September:

What You Did by Claire McGowan        4/5 stars
This book kept me guessing until the very end. When six college friends reunite after 20 years, it's all laughs until one of the women stumbles in and claims she's been assaulted by another woman's husband. There's no doubt in anyone's mind that Karen has been assaulted, but who did it exactly. That's the big question and the one that will have you second guessing yourself until you find out who really did it and why.

The Party by Robyn Harding       2/5 stars
This book started off strong and stayed the course until the ending. I thought is was anticlimactic. I enjoyed the story line and related to much of it. It centers around the birthday party of a 16 year old girl. Some forbidden alcohol and boys are part of the party, and soon, one of the girls is flat on the floor after falling through a glass cocktail table. There's lots of scandal, gossip, and drama in this book that make for a good read, but I wish the ending were a bit stronger. I was disappointed in it.

Friends Like These by Sarah Alderson          4/5 stars
This psychological thriller had me on the edge of my seat. The beginning is a little slow. There's some backstory and some shifting between past and present that are hard to adjust to. But once you get into the action and the meat of the book, it was hard for me to put this one down. It's hard to go into detail without giving spoilers, but this book was full of surprises.
