Did you find some gems? DNF a few? Find your new book boyfriend or a heroine who personifies TSTL? Come on, we all want to know! What were your standouts for September?

Fran | 11274 comments My favorite of September was Afterlife with Archie, Vol. 1 Escape from Riverdale by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa Afterlife with Archie, Vol. 1: Escape from Riverdale.

It felt like The Walking Dead meets the Archie Gang - I loved it!
All of my favorite characters from my childhood, when I was obsessed with Archie and the gang, set in a zombie style reality.
Clever, well written, and pretty dark. Looking forward to Volume 2!

I didn't have any duds last month. The other books I read were all good, 3-3.5* reads.

No duds, the weakest was probably Flirts! 5 Romantic Short Stories and I still enjoyed it. =)

Pamela | 88 comments There were several I really enjoyed. I won't list them all, but I think my absolute favorites were Stepbrother Dearest and The Coincidence of Callie & Kayden.
My worst read clearly was Fallen Too Far. I still finished the next two books in this series to see how the story ends, but it really wasn't worth it...

Loriidae | 415 comments I have enjoyed Maggie Shayne's romantic suspense series previously so I was really disappointed to find the first in her paranormal series Immortal Witches Eternity so bland all the wit and sassy heroines were missing.

Amber | 715 comments My favorites this month were: Spring Fever by Mary Kay Andrews , The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware , and No One Knows by J.T. Ellison .

My least favorite was Nantucket Nights by Elin Hilderbrand , this book and it's characters were awful.
