My Month in Books: September

I decided rather than do a weekly post I wanted to create a monthly feature that combines the books I receive with a look back on the month. A post to talk about everything that has happened book wise - so any books I receive for review or buy, any bookish events I attend, what I've read, reviewed and so on.

So this is My Month in Books for September

My September Highlights:

The Dark Heroine by Abigail Gibbs - I wasn't sure what to expect when I picked this one up but was really surprised by it. Plus I love the fact it is UK based!

Ordinary Magic by Caitlen Rubino-Bradway - just magical (pun intended!) This is a gem of a book - really exciting and I can't wait to recommend it to lots of people :D

Speechless by Hannah Harrington - I adored Saving June and I loved this one too!  I just love the characters she creates! And Sam is seriously swoon-worthy!

Awkward by Marni Bates - This is sooooo much fun.  A laugh out loud, feel-good read!  I'm really looking forward to reading more by Marni Bates *waits impatiently for copy of Decked With Holly to arrive*

Jana Oliver Evening:

I got the chance to meet Jana Oliver! Being a MASSIVE fan of her Demon Trapper series (and, of course, Beck!!!) I was just a tad excited! It was a brilliant evening and Jana is lovely. Plus she gave us this fab goodie bad (which has some extras so there will be a giveaway on the blog soon:))

Massive thanks to Macmillan for organising the event:)

Leigh Bardugo Event:

I was also invited to Waterstones in Piccadilly to meet the rather lovely Leigh Bardugo. She read from her book The Gathering Dark (aka Shadow and Bone), and we got to ask questions as well as mingle afterwards. Massive thank to Orion and Waterstones for organising such a brilliant event:)  And to Sarah @ Feeling Fictional for extending the invite:D
