(I need to do a better job of living with my heart! 💗)
And because I enjoyed reading The Comeback so much, I had to check out Chu's first book The Stand-In, which I ended up loving just as much, if not more.

The Library by Bella Osborne
The Blackout Book Club by Amy Lynn Green
The 22 Murders of Madison May by Max Berry
Girl Gone Missing by Marcie Rendon
The Soulmate Equation by Christina Lauren
Ruby Spencer's Whiskey Year by Rochelle Bilow
Play For Me by Libby Hubscher
The Drowning Girls by Lisa Regan
Play Dead by Angela Marsons
Accidentally Famous by Marissa Clarke

Lastly, two quotes that seemed perfect for September:
