Whoa, it seems like the girls were discussing their August wrap-up post a few days ago, and now here comes their September wrap-up!
• Zoe celebrated her birthday with a giveaway and bookish recommendations!
Salt & Storm by Kendall Kulper
review to come on The Social Potato
Most of the books I read this month were ones I enjoyed for the most part, but I think Salt & Storm definitely deserves my “book of the month” title. I just loved the historical setting, the witch lore and everything else (except maybe the romance). -Aimee
I loved it because it was really intense and really well-written! It also doesn’t hurt that Warner was a fantastic character! :P – Dyan
My favorite book of the month was probably Don’t Touch by Rachel M. Wilson because it was powerful and touching, and combined 2 of my hobbies: theatre and psychology. -Zoe
I choose If I Stay by Gayle Forman. I like it because it was so heartwarming and it has been so long since I read a contemporary that affected me so much. -Marga
