Review in a Nutshell: When She Reigns delivers on its promises of dragons, but at the cost of some of its other aspects. That said, I still enjoyed it.

(This exact line is said a million times. I think I’ll be saying it in my sleep)

When She Reigns is the third and final book in the Fallen Isles trilogy. It takes place shortly after the devastating ending of As She Ascends, and follows Mira and her friends as she tries to find a way to save her people and her home.

I had a busy month is August, but despite that, I managed to read 10 books! I focused a lot on the Disney-A-Thon in August, (I even did some of my reading is Disney World!), so while I’ll talk about some of my favorites now, I’ll be posting a full Disney-A-Thon wrap up soon!
I started August off strong, but I definitely fell behind on my goals. That said, I’m still happy to have read 10 books. Hopefully I’ll keep the momentum going in September!

Fall is here and I’m only a little bitter about it. Okay who am I kidding, I’m very bitter. While fall may be my favorite season, I feel like summer went by way too fast!
That said, I’m not bitter about the books coming out this month! A couple of these books I’m about to talk about have become all-time favorites of mine, and I can’t wait for everyone else to read them!
Now, there are a lot of September releases. Seriously. A lot. So much that I have to split up this list into sections. First, we have my top 7 YA standalones and series starters, but I’ve also included a list of 6 sequels as well as 2 non-YA releases I’m excited for.
Read more for my top 7 September 2019 releases!

I read 10 books this month, including only 1 from my September TBR! This month I was a lot more motivated to read in comparison to the Great Slump of August 2018. It took a while for me to get motivated, but I did and I’m so happy!
