Every Other Weekend is the first book I’ve read from Abigail Johnson but it surely won’t be the last. I loved this dual POV story of two teens spending every other weekend together as they navigate their complicated home lives. Full review to come in January!

Pumpkinheads is an utterly adorable read! I loved following Deja and Josiah around on their last night working in the pumpkin patch together. They have quite the fun adventure as they travel through the patch eat all the delicious food. Seriously, though, there’s just so much fall goodness! And the art is just so charming and cute!

Austenland was such a fun read that helped get me out of a reading rut. I saw the movie ages ago when it first came out so I’m glad I’ve finally had a chance to read the book. It’s very entertaining and light-hearted and will totally suck you in.

If you’re a fan of Marie Lu’s Batman: Nightwalker you’re going to want to check out the graphic novel adaptation! And if you haven’t read the novel, the graphic novel is a great way to experience the story. The art really creates a dark atmosphere and setting as well as adds suspense to the story. Read my full review + check out a sneak peak of the artwork here.

For Everyone is a such a short, inspiring piece of poetry. It’s perfect for all ages as it’s a letter of encouragement for all the dreamers out there—a pep talk if you will! For Everyone would most definitely make an excellent graduation present.

Meant to Be is a super cute story! I didn’t want to put it down as it was such a feel-good book. I loved watching Julia and Jason explore London together. They’re complete opposites, but I loved how they drove each other crazy at first and then eventually started to appreciate their differences and grow from them. Meant to Be is a super fluffy read that will leave you wishing for a chance to fall in love in London!

Have you read any of these books yet? What books did you read in September?
