Read in September 2015

Oh goodness, I'm back to do my reading wrap-up for September 2015 and I've only read two books. lol  What can I say?  The transition from summer to fall has been far from seamless.  But without further adieu, here's what I read this month.

They Came From Below by Blake Nelson

Blake Nelson has been one of my favorite authors for years.  His stories are always interesting and the way that he writes is so frank and realistic, which you might not expect since he is a grown man writing from the perspective of a teenager named Emily.  This science fiction-y novel was the perfect mix of humor and seriousness and of course reading about the beach is always fun.  I really don't think this book is for everyone, but I adored it.

Breathe, Annie, Breath by Miranda Kenneally

Miranda Kenneally's Hundred Oaks "series" (although all the books can be read as stand alone novels) has become one of my favorite more recent young adult series.  The characters are interesting, the setting is enticing, and they always have an issue that is usually heart-wrenching but also realistic.  I loved Annie from the start and I also loved reading about her ups and downs of running and coping with her boyfriend's death.  Not to mention what a cute love interest Jere was. And all of the awesome reappearances of old Hundred Oaks characters!

That's it for now.  Hopefully I get some more reading in next month.

Take care,
