Top Ten Tuesday: (Five) Favourite September 2010-2020 Reads

Created by and with thanks to That Artsy Reader! This week’s theme is a freebie, and I thought I’d use it to talk about September Through the Decade. At the end of every month this year, I’ve been breaking down everything I read in that month of every year through the past decade, 2010-2020. I just posted September’s–here’s a little preview!

1. Graceling by Kristin Cashore, best book of September 2010
I’ll be rereading this ahead of reading Winterkeep this winter, and I’m already so excited!


2. Heist Society by Ally Carter, best book of September 2013
I’d like to say I love all Ally books equally, but that would be lying, because I love this one the most.


3. Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins, best book of September 2015
I mentioned on my September Decades post that this book makes me want to read the whole series again, and it does. The fluff! The angst! The romance! Yes, yes, yes.

4. How to be Famous by Caitlin Moran, best book of September 2018
I realise I rarely talk about this book, or the first in the series–and it’s because they just strike such an emotional chord with me, I find it hard to express how much I love them. Let it be known that they’re September favourites for a reason!


5. Season of the Witch by Sarah Rees Brennan, best book of September 2019
I adore The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, the show these novel companions are based on, but I’ll say this: Sarah Rees Brennan writes the characters better than the show writers did. I SAID IT AND I MEANT IT.


Those are my September winners–check out the post, here, to see which book was crowned my Ultimate September Read!

  1. This is so fun!

    I like Graceling a lot. I just reread the series this year but I didn’t read Winterkeep yet.

    I need to read Heist Society since it’s the only Ally Carter series I haven’t read yet. Glad you like it 🙂

      1. The reread was funny. I still enjoyed Graceling, though so much happened that I didn’t remember. (I really only remembered everything about Po xD) But when I first read them I didn’t like Fire and I really liked Bitterblue and this time it was reverse. I LOVED Fire so much. It’s my favorite of the series, and I didn’t care for Bitterblue much. It felt too long and dragged out. So it’s was definitely interesting to see how my tastes have changed. I tried to read Winterkeep and couldn’t get into the story. I’m not sure I’ll ever read it, but I’m not crossing it out completely.

        Thank you! I’ll get to it eventually 🙂

      2. I really liked Fire the first time, so I’ll be interested to see if my favourites have changed! Hopefully Winterkeep pulls through for you later on—so much of reading can be about time and mood!

      3. That is totally true, and I do think it might have been time and mood that affected my interest level. I might try the audiobook as well in case that helps!

  2. Oh, man, this is so cool. For the past few years I’ve been doing an annual rundown of my reading log from 10 years prior, but I love the idea of comparing a specific month through the years! I’m going to read through some of those posts when I’m done here.

    I haven’t read any of these titles, but the feeling when a tie-in novel is better than the scripted writing is…sad for the show, but also kind of an amazing reading experience.–RS

    1. Thank you! It’s so interesting to look back on reading over the years–I can remember some of the months like they were this month!
      And absolutely. The Sabrina books are the best example I can think of for that. The show ran a bit wild, but the books were really grounded!
