September Books

I read 35 books this month with an average score of 3.87. 7 were graphic novels and 14 were YA. My most-read genres were mystery, contemporary, and sci-fi. Fantasy and thriller were right behind. It's been a while since romance didn't make that list. Horror actually tied it for sixth.


I just realized all my favorite books were graphic novels this month. It was a really good month for those. Of those, I think Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Vol. 1: High School Is Hell might have been my favorite, but it's really close with Pumpkinheads and Go For It, Nakamura!. All three of those had great art and I had a smile on my face the entire time I read them.


My least favorite was Bring Me Back - B.A. Paris. The main character frustrated me for the entire book and I just wanted him to stop and actually think things through.
