Monthly Wrap-Up — September 2019

Posted September 30, 2019 by Stephanie in Uncategorized / 12 Comments

Hello my fellow bookworms! I can’t believe it’s the end of September already. Where did the month go? I didn’t read as many books as I usually do but most of them were good ratings so I’m not complaining. So here is my wrap-up!

The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller —4/5★
The Falcon of Sparta by Conn Iggulden —4/5★ (Review)

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott (adapted by John Escott) —1/5★

Favorite book of the month:

The true life stories of six little-known fierce ancient warrior queens are told with humor and vivid detail by an award-winning writer.

For young readers seeking to be inspired by stories of strong women, this riveting book shines a light on six powerful ancient queens. Highlighting women warriors who ruled in ancient eras, like Hatshepsut in 1492 BCE Egypt, and Zenobia in 260 CE Palmyra, the stories span the globe to reveal the hidden histories of queens who challenged men and fought for the right to rule their queendoms. Award-winning author Vicky Alvear Shectar’s lively text and acclaimed illustrator Bill Mayer’s witty illustrations showcase these stories filled with history, power, and humor.

My favorite book of September was hard to pick this month because I’ve read quite a few good ones. But in the end nothing books an illustrated book about badass warrior queens!

What was your favorite book of September?

  1. You did manage to do a lot of reading! Oh no, you really didn't like Little Women!! I read it when I was younger and remember liking it because it follows four sisters and in our family we are also four. But I wonder what I would think now…

  2. You did have a great month of reading! I am sorry that Little Women wasn't your cup of tea. It is one of my old favs, but I can see how the old fashioned writing might not be enjoyable. Have a great October in books. :0
