  • I really enjoyed War of the Worlds and Postmortem- both were 4 stars. I had read Scarpetta last year without knowing it was part of a series, so I enjoyed picking the story up from earlier.
    I did not have any worsts, I enjoyed all the books I read (granted there were only 4 in September).

  • I read the Hunger Games trilogy and re-read HP #1 and #2.

    I enjoyed them all a lot but Mockingjay was my least favorite. Favorite would be Sorcerer's Stone.

  • Best -
    Bronze Horseman series overall

    Worst -
    a free Nook Book "Promise" by Kristie Cook. The MC was stupid and annoying as hell.

  • Best: Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, Death, and Hope in a Mumbai Undercity by Katherine Boo.  SO good and so sad that people really live like that.

    Worst: The Magicians by Lev Grossman.  I only got through about half and I kept avoiding reading it.  Just wasn't my thing.

  • Best: Heart-shaped Box and One Thousand White Women (4 stars) - both solid entertaining reads.
    Worst: Shatter Me (2 stars) - I felt like the author was withholding information from the reader and didn't care for the stream of consciousness in the first half.
    My favorite place on earth: The Amargosa Valley.

  • I ranked everything the same this month.

  • I read 3 books and both A Modern Witch and Sharp Objects were 4 stars. Of the two, Sharp Objects was better.

    I gave The Cuckoo's Calling 3 stars. I was invested in a couple of the characters but never the story if that makes sense.

  • My favorites were: The Firebird by Susanna Kearsley, and Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman. I had others that were 4 stars but these were the best.

    Worst: Girls in White Dresses by Jennifer Close. This wasn't a terrible book but I felt like it was marketed as chick lit, and I associate chick lit with being fun and fluffy. This book is a little more serious and realistic at times. I also felt like the characters should have been developed better.

  • Best:  The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay.  Sooooooooo many feels!

    Worst: N/A - I only read 3 books and they were 4 and 5 stars for me.
