September 2023 Books


Unorthodox Love by Heidi Shertok - Not bad, but not my favorite Jewy romance novel. I wanted it to move faster! And I wanted to see how they'd "mix" their Jewishness. 

Love Theoretically by Ali Hazelwood - Loved this science-themed romance! Especially since we're also watching the Big Bang Theory, so it dovetailed with some of that too. 

Divine Rivals by Rebecca Ross - Honestly, did not love this one. It has been all over the bestseller lists so I was excited for this fantasy enemies-to-lovers book, but I found it fairly forgettable. As in, I almost can't remember finishing it!

Kiss the Girl by Zoraida Cordova - I adore this Disney-themed romance series. This one was Little Mermaid inspired, and I was not disappointed. 

Warrior Girl Unearthed by Angeline Boulley - Loved this author's first book, and I also really enjoyed this look into the Native community in Northern Michigan. I love the cultural and linguistic insights in the characters and the story of reclaiming stolen artifacts was intense and heartbreaking.

September was a great month for reading for me. There were 3 books that really stood out for me this month. "The Great Believers" by Rebecca Makkai, which is about the AIDS epidemic in Chicago and its long-term impact on the survivors, was phenomenal. I also enjoyed Ann Patchett's new book, "Tom Lake," especially for its depiction of the way many of the middle-aged mothers I know enjoyed (and felt guilty for enjoying) having their adult children come home during the pandemic. I also think you'd find "The Heaven and Earth Grocery Store" by James McBride, a novel that focuses on relationships between black and Jewish members of a small, rural community in Pennsylvania, interesting.
