Although it was challenging, I did manage to unhaul some books this month! If you want to know what they are and why I‘m unhauling them, you‘ll have to watch the video! 😉 https://youtu.be/11cAmX5FuxE

EadieB @Butterflyamore Good job! I think you made wise decisions. I looked up the books as you were speaking and I agree especially with The Girl Before as I gave that 1 star and decided it was a waste of time. I have gotten rid of 110 books in January. I posted them on paperbackswap.com and have been mailing them to those who have requested them. I also get a credit for each book and can order new books with my credits. 1mo
EadieB @Butterflyamore I need to drastically downsize as my daughter and granddaughter are coming to live with us in late June from Virginia. Mostly I am getting rid of historical fiction as I mostly enjoy historical mystery and I don‘t find myself gravitating to the hist/fiction. It has been alleviating stress as I don‘t feel so overwhelmed by my excessive amount of books I own. I will continue each month to release about 100/month. (edited) 1mo
Butterflyamore @EadieB That‘s a really impressive number! I definitely understand your feelings on historical fiction, as I‘m more inclined to gravitate toward HF with some mystery in it but there are some exceptions. I‘ll have to check paperbackswap.com out. I use other platforms but that sounds really interesting! 1mo
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick I am moving some boxes of old books into storage for now and in cataloging them, I pulled some out that I am no longer interested in. As I read others, I'll be unhauling the ones I didn't love. 1mo

This Tender Land: A Novel | William Kent Krueger

Do you ever try to guess what books you will give 5 stars to? I selected eight books that I haven‘t read yet but believe will be 5 star reads for me. You can see my predictions in my latest video! https://youtu.be/zKXdS-ejTVY

EadieB @Butterflyamore I found some books on your video that I am interested in reading. They are This Tender Land which I have a hold on at the library already, Saint X for the same reason you said having really liked The Silent Patient and The Whisper Man, Nearly Normal Family mentioned by you sounds interesting to me too. And finally, I will be checking out American Dirt and Dear Edward - thanks for calling these books to my attention. 3mo
EadieB @Butterflyamore 5 star predictions from NetGalley: Hid From Our Eyes by Julia Spencer-Fleming, next book in a series that I love, also The Other Wife by Claire McGowen - I have read other books by Claire and love her writing. The Sea of Lost Girls by Carol Goodman is a book that will be published 3/2020 that I got from LibraryThing, The Unwilling by John Hart contacted by St. Martin Press, Empire of Lies by Raymond Khoury from Bookish First.

It‘s time to talk about the books we read in September! Come watch my latest video and chat with me about your reads from last month! https://youtu.be/Y_Bhj5MAaxk

#booktube #septemberwrapup #monthlywrapup #booksreadinseptember #septemberreads #bookreviews #booktalk #goodreads #bookvideo #readersunite

EadieB @Butterflyamore The only book I read from your list is Recursion. I have a few books from Jennifer Donnelly and need to read them. I have the Tea Rose collection and Northern Lights and Revolution. I have the DI Patrick Lennon books from Mark Edwards which he wrote with Louise Voss. @Andrew65 read them and loved them and we have similar tastes. I hope to read them soon. Now I‘ll tell you about what I read in September in my next post. 5mo
EadieB @Butterflyamore I read 14 books and about 6 were mysteries from series I am reading. First off, my rating system is usually 3 stars is a so-so read, 4 stars is I liked it a-lot and 5 stars it was great! Anything below 3 I didn‘t like at all. 4:50 from Paddington by Agatha Christie was 4 stars, The Caller by Chris Carter was a 5 star read but his books are over the top gore but I read them with a group and we do enjoy them. 5mo

EadieB @Butterflyamore Farewell My Lovely by Raymond Chandler was a 5 star read. I read this one for my 100 years mystery book challenge. I love those old time classics. A Better Man by Louise Penny was a disappointing 3 stars. I have read her series for 15 books and she needs to get back to writing about Three Pines village like her earlier books. Her last two have been off track. I think her reviews will wake her up as to what she needs to do. 5mo
EadieB @Butterflyamore After the Fire by Jane Casey is a 4 star read and a great series too! The Funeral Boat by Kate Ellis was 4 stars and another series read with a group. The Beekeepers Apprentice by Laurie R King was 5 stars. It is about Sherlock Holmes at the time of his retirement and Mary Russell who will be his new female partner. This was the 1st book in the series so I‘m looking forward to read more. I‘ll tell you next about the fiction books. 5mo
EadieB @Butterflyamore Hammer of Eden by Ken Follett which is a 4 star read. I am reading all his standalone books with @Andrew65 and @Tove_Reads and we are really enjoying his writing. What Rose Forgot is a 4 star read from NetGalley. Ask Again Yes is a 4 star. I think you may have read this one. The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo was an excellent 5 star read. If you haven‘t read this yet, you should! Nights of Rain and Stars by Maeve Binchy was 4 stars 5mo
Andrew65 @EadieB Yes, totally loved the DI Patrick Lennon Books, I just wish they‘d write more. Hope you enjoyed them @Butterflyamore 5mo
Andrew65 The Caller by Chris Carter and The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo were two of my favourite books in September along with The Moon Sister by Lucinda Riley. @eadieb @Butterflyamore 5mo
EadieB @Butterflyamore I‘m reading all of Binchy‘s books with another group and we enjoy them. They are books usually about Ireland and interesting unique characters. Neverworld Wake by Marisha Pessl is 4 star read. This book is very different. It is a YA book with many genres; magical realism, science fiction, psychological suspense. I read her Night Film book so I decided to try this one too. The Words Between Us is a 5 star read from NetGalley. 5mo
Butterflyamore @EadieB It sounds like a pretty good reading month for you! I definitely want to read more of books by Mark Edwards. I haven‘t read Ask Again, Yes yet but I do have it. I see so many positive things about Evelyn Hugo. I have to say that it has never appealed to me but I‘m hoping to do one thing outside of my comfort zone each month so I‘m sure I will read it eventually. 5mo
EadieB @Butterflyamore This last book i told you about is by Erin Bartels and I really liked her writing alot and her characters too. @Andrew65 Thanks for chiming in and confirming about the books we read in September! (edited) 5mo
Butterflyamore @Andrew65 The Moon Sister sounds interesting. I haven‘t read the DI Patrick Lennon books yet but I read The Retreat by Mark Edwards last month and loved it so I‘d definitely like to check out more of his work. 5mo
Andrew65 @Butterflyamore The whole Seven Sisters Series by Lucinda Riley is excellent. 5mo
Andrew65 @EadieB You Know me, can‘t not! James Rollins and James Oswald in October so should be another good month. 5mo
EadieB @Andrew65 Yes! I'm looking forward to reading those! Thanks again for joining in! 5mo
Andrew65 @Butterflyamore will be interested to see what you both think of the DI Patrick Lennon Books. @EadieB 5mo

EadieB @Butterflyamore Loved the game and I was surprised Josh got so many right! I‘ve read Crawdads, Whisper Man, Ordinary Grace and Matthew Dicks book. Enjoyed them all. I have Sleepwalker, Speak and Racing in the Rain but have not read them. Didn‘t make a list of the books but I think that‘s all I can remember. I‘ll have to watch the video again in the morning and see if I missed any more. I‘ll have to give my husband a test! lol 6mo
Butterflyamore @EadieB I was pretty impressed with how well he did! 6mo

EadieB @Butterflyamore Loved the picking out of a jar! Most of my books TBR are group reads or buddy reads so don‘t require picking or choosing. It‘s already decided. I am finishing up my readathon today so I‘ll send you my TBR list for September tomorrow as I‘m trying to finish a book today before midnight 6mo
