Now that we’ve talked about what we read and added to our shelves in September it’s time to look back at last year’s bookhaul. What books did we add to our shelves in September 2021? And more importantly: have we read them? Keep on reading this month’s Looking Back at Our Bookhauls to find out!
These are always interesting posts, because I never know if I’ve actually read any of the books I bought throughout 2021, haha. In September 2021 I added six books to my collection, so not too bad. Let’s see what I’ve read.
Under the Whispering Door – TJ Klune
TJ Klune is an author I’ve really come to appreciate and Under the Whispering Door was an emotional, but beautiful story. It deals a lot with grief, death, and even self acceptance. The characters in this story still have a special place in my heart.
The Girl in the Tower – Katherine Arden
The Bear and the Nightingale was an interesting start to a trilogy even if it was a bit slow. The Girl in the Tower continues this story and I did enjoy it. Katherine Arden definitely has a way with words. Even though this is once again a slower paced book I’m glad I read it.
Hang the Moon – Alexandria Bellefleur
Like I stated in the bookhaul post the audiobook wasn’t really working for me. I did end up starting Hang the Moon and I got about 30% in before getting distracted. This was a book I was enjoying, so I do need to go back and finish it.
The Book of Accidents – Chuck Wendig
The Book of Accidents seems to be a perfect read for this time of year, but I still haven’t read it. I’ve seen this book pop up again recently on bookstagram and I do want to pick this up soon! It’s over 500 pages if I remember correctly, so perfect for my big books goal.
Blood & Honey – Shelby Mahurin
Another case of I started this book to then get distracted. I’m really awful, haha. I loved Serpent & Dove, so it’s surprising I didn’t finish this one. Blood & Honey is one that got mixed reviews, but I do still want to finish reading it.
The Devil Makes Three – Tori Bovalino
Writing these posts make me realize how bad I am at reading my Illumicrate editions. The Devil Makes Three definitely seems to be a great book for this time of year. I don’t know if I’ll get to it before the year is over, but it’s definitely one I still want to read.
Read: 2/6 – 33.3%
TBR: 4/6 – 66.7%
I completely forgot what books I got in September last year so this was interesting (and also a little scary) to take a look at haha. Last year I was already slowing down on buying new books and I only got 3 new ones. Let’s see if I actually read them.
Death Note Black Edition vol. IV – Tsugumi Ohba
I did read this one! And I’m actually close to finishing the series with just one more volume to go. I plan on reading that this month, but definitely this year. It will be nice to finish another series and I’m excited to see how this story ends.
The Lights of Prague – Nicole Jarvis
I forgot I got this last year, but I did not forgot I had this. It is a book I look at often but it hasn’t called out to me so I haven’t read it yet. I think I will really enjoy it once I finally pick it up, whenever that may be haha.
Empire of the Vampire – Jay Kristoff
I have not yet read this big boy! Before starting it I want to finish my other Jay Kristoff books/series. Especially the Nevernight series. I might also have been a little intimidated by the size haha.
Read: 1/3 – 33%
TBR: 2/3 – 66%
So that’s the looking back at our bookhauls for this month. Have you read any of these books? What did you think? Let us know in the comments! We’d love to hear from you.
