So, as some of you may already know, for the last 4 years I have been studying to become a primary school teacher. WELL! This month was the month it all started getting real. I attended my last ever tutorial at uni, I submitted my final two university assignments (praise the Lord), I left my college which was my home away from home for the past 4 years (and let me tell you, trying to fit 4 years worth of stuff, into an already full room back home has been tough). And finally, I had my teacher suitability interview on the 19th! So as you can imagine, I didn't have much time to read, although I did manage to squeeze in 2 books, which I am quite proud off all thing considered! I am hoping October will be a better reading month for me, but seeing as I will start teaching (hopefully), I might not.
Anywho, on with the wrap up!
The first book I read this month, was more of a short story. Body Check by Elle Kennedy is part of a 3 story bind up by Harlequin. I pretty much only read this, because of the fact Elle Kennedy wrote it, and it was about hockey (and I really loved her Off Campus series about hockey). I haven't read the other two books in the bind up, but this one was decent. I wasn't a huge fan of the indecisiveness of the main character, and the lack of plot development. But it was decent. I gave this 3/5 and you can read my review here.
And the last book I read in September (I technically finished in October but I'm putting it here), was Hold Me Like a Breath by Tiffany Schmidt. This was a contemporary fairytale retelling of Princess and the Pea and it had such a unique storyline. The main character has an autoimmune disease so she bruises incredibly easily, henceforth she is basically confined to her home. But her family run some black market organ transplant business. Add in some family/business rivarly and you've got yourself one crazy, action-packed contemporary! I gave this one 4/5 and a review will be up on my blog very soon!
