In chronological order, here's what I read:
reviewed in September and I wasn't crazy about it. Though I'm glad I was able to get another book in translation under my belt for the year.
2. Descent by Tim Johnston. Debut novel, literary thriller. Girl gets abducted one morning when out for a run in the woods. The book then gives us the perspectives of her family, her abductor, and even the girl herself in alternating chapters. Really well done and I hope to get around to reviewing it. Soon. Ish.
4. The First Bad Man by Miranda July. I have no idea what to make of this book. It's funny and weird and disturbing in pretty equal measure. I reckon I ought to review it, with a tagline like that.
5. Yes Please by Amy Poehler. The long-awaited memoir/humor book from a favorite comedian. I liked it, but it really should have had a stronger editorial hand behind it. I won't review this one, as there will be plenty of others out there singing its praises.
So, not entirely shabby but not impressive either. I'm having a great time with all 5 of my current reads right now, so I hope October will be good.
What about y'all? What books surprised or delighted or disappointed you in September?
