September 2021 wrap up

 Hello everyone!!

We are already in October and I may sound repetitive but I honestly didn't realized when this happened.
Back to the books now and my reading wrap up for September. In this month I read  6 books.  Three of them were eBooks and three physical books and among them there were three eARCs.

Let's start...

A Reaper at the Gates (Ember in the Ashes #3) - Sabaa Tahir

This book was really really good. It had everything in it, from action to character development and everything between. Now the only thing that is left is to read the final installment of the series.

Rating: 4 Stars

Review to come pretty soon

Rebel Girls Champions: 25 Tales of Unstoppable Athletes - Rebel Girls

This collection tells us the stories of 25 unstoppable women athletes. They are inspiring stories of girls who wanted to become athletes and they succeeded despite the difficulties and discriminations they faced.
It is written like a fairytale and it is perfect for young readers, Also, the stories accompany great illustrations.

Rating: 4 Stars
Expected publication October 12, 2021

Look out for a review on the 9th.

Ο Νυχτερινός Περίπατος της γιαγιάς ( Grandma's night walk) - Alki Zei

A bittersweet little story about a beloved grandma and her last night walk. 
This picture book is about one of my favourite childhood authors and both the story and the illustrations are wonderful.

Rating: 5 Stars

Once More Upon A Time  - Roshani Chokshi

This is an unusual fairytale retelling because it combines many fairytales in one. It was a quick and sweet read full of references from many well-known and well-loved fairytales.
I also really enjoyed the writing style of the author.
To be honest this book made me wanting to read the original fairytales that it mentions.

Rating: 4 Stars
Expected publication October 5, 2021

Look out for my review on the 4th.

City of Ghosts (Cassidy Blake #1) - Victoria Schwab

Victoria Schwab is one of my favourite authors and her attempt at a middle grade novel couldn't disappoint me and of course it didn't. 
I really liked the story and the characters and of course the writing. 

The only thing is that now I want to visit Edinburgh! 

Rating: 4 Stars

There will be a review pretty soon.

The Secret Garden on 81st Street: A Modern Retelling of the Secret Garden - Ivy Noelle Weir & Amber Padilla

This is kind of a retelling for the Secret Garden but in a graphic novel form and brought to our times. 
It tackled serious issues such as anxiety and depression very good and managed to get through positive messages.
I also loved the illustrations

Rating: 4 Stars

Look out for a review on the 24th.

That's it for September!
