Books that I plan to read in September

As I mentioned at some time back, I joined NetGalley in June and went a bit crazy with the requests. I assumed that most of them would be rejected and so I kept asking for books. In total, I requested for 34 books lol, yeah I know it is bad. 30 of them were approved in the end. However, this meant that I had a tone of ARCs to read and hardly any time to read my other books. I have read and reviewed 20 books from NetGalley so far and I hope to get through the remaining ten this month. I will try and stay away from ARCs for a while after that. So here are the 10 books that I plan to read in September:

  1. The Boston Strangler by Gerold Frank
  2. Dead and Buried by Helen H. Durant
  3. After She’s Gone by Lisa Jackson
  4. Fear Stalks the Bayou by Juanita Coulson
  5. Land of Carful Shadows by Suzanne Chazin
  6. Cover Me in Darkness by Eileen Rendahl
  7. The Kept Woman by Karin Slaughter
  8. Fractured by Catherine McKenzie
  9. The Last One by Alexandra Oliva
  10. Two Days Left by Randall Silvis

I hope that you had a wonderful month. Happy September. Cheers!
