I absolutely adore reading - my love for books has had a huge impact on my life! I'm going to grad school to be a children's/YA librarian.

September Round Up

The Maze Runner - James Dashner In Cold Blood - Truman Capote The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, #1) - Douglas Adams

This has been a very, very sad reading month for me - not because the books were particularly sad, but because I read so few of them! I was only able to read three, and the really sad part is that none of them were even that long. The reason I could only read three is because I just started grad school and I have been reading  A TON for that... which leaves no time for reading for fun :( And if the next 12 months leave me with only reading 3 books a month for fun.... *sobs* 

I miss reading :( 



So, to be completely honest, I didn't love any of these books. My favorite of the three was most definitely In Cold Blood. Though some parts dragged, it's based on real events (though Capote's accuracy has been questioned) and the way that the story is told is very compelling. I don't know if saying that I "enjoyed" this book is the right word choice, exactly, but I am definitely glad that I read this. 


I really can't pick between The Maze Runner and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I didn't particularly like either of them, for very different reasons. I thought that The Maze Runner was boring and I really think that I'm just tired of the YA dystopia trend - it is a cool concept, but it's way overdone right now. As for THGtG, it was most definitely original... but it was weird. I wasn't a fan of the humor and the book just didn't click for me. If forced to choose, I'm going to have to say that THGtG was the better of the two, but only because I feel that it was better-written. 


I reeeeeeeally hope that I'll be able to read more next month! But I doubt it. 


What was your favorite book that you read in September? Have you read any of my picks?
