September's Monthly Recap

A little late posting this, but I had a mostly good month In September!

September Monthly Recap

Reviews:
  • Fool's Quest by Robin Hobb - Oh, I loved this! Such a great second book to the series! So looking forward to the final book Assassin's Fate, but scared where the story is going to take Fitz! (Not pictured as it was borrowed and I had to give it back.)
  • Night Owls by Jenn Bennett - Oh my god, this was so, so good! Really amazing story! A sweet, flirty romance, and very sex-positive!
  • Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon - This was a really interesting story. It's flawed, and it was probably published at the wrong time, but I think it will get people talking. It's a sweet story, otherwise!
  • Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway - A bit of a disappointment; I wasn't emotionally engaged in the story, and so didn't really care what happened. (Not pictured as there was no cover with my NetGalley proof.)
  • All of the Above by James Dawson - This book is about far much more than just sexuality, to the point where sexuality is only a small part of the story. Although it was very realistic, and a pretty good story mostly, I was left disappointed for being made to believe this was a story it wasn't.
Not too many reviews this month, but a few of the books I read are for Sex in Teen Lit Month II which is coming in November, and one was reviewed in October.

A Novel Cover Up

Had a few A Novel Cover Up posts this month:
Other posts:
  • I interviewed Holly Bodger, discussing her novel 5 to 1 and feminism.
  • I discussed booktubing, how it's not for me, and why I think that might be my downfall.
  • I took part in the blog tour for Sarah Mussi's Here Be Dragons, and Sarah stopped by, interviewing herself about one of the final parts of the writing process, The Death Zone
Earlier this month, Louise O'Neill's Asking For It came out, and there's been a lot of really interesting things about it around the internet. Here are just a few:
