Hello earthlings, how are my favourite people in the world?
Yes, I am trying to apologise with cotton-candy words for your guys to forgive me for my total lack of news! I started classes, I’ve been working on my “novel” and I’ve also been super lazy/tired. Not that much of an excuse but you guys know that I always come back, right?
So, September was the worst month for me! I only read two books, started the third one (which I’ll try to finish this weekend!) and I have no idea what to read in October!
I’ve been planning to re-read Throne of Glass for months now and it finally happened in September due to the release of Empire of Storms. I was actually going to dedicate myself to the three books I own of the series but unfortunately I haven’t been able to! But I will be definitely be re-reading Crown of Midnight in October – hoping to but Queen of Shadows and Empire of Storms for my bday 😀 – Also, second time reading this book was way better than the first so I bumped it up that half-star I had previously not given to it… it’s definitely a 5 cups/stars book!!;
Summerlong – Peter S. Beagle (3/5 cups – review to come) GR |TBD|Amazon
This was a peculiar read. Overall I enjoyed it but I guess I was expecting something else and I was slightly disappointed with it. It’s one of those books I have quite of mixed feelings and can’t really know for sure how to put in words my thoughts about it. I’ll try to write my review for it but I won’t promise to be quite coherent about it;
This is, so far, my favourite book in The Mortal Instruments series. I loved the action, the characters, pretty much everything! Even though people tell me that the next book is the worse, I’m super pumped to continue with this amazing series.;
I cannot believe how good this book was!! One of my favourite series, without a doubt. And I’m so happy I decided to re-read the first book because if I haven’t, I probably wouldn’t have enjoyed this one as much as I because a lot of details from the first book are important in this one!;
The Healer [The Witch Hunter #0,5] – Virginia Boecker (5/5 cups – no review) – GR|Amazon (US)
This is a novella about John, a main character in The Witch Hunter series and it works as a prequel to the first book. I didn’t count this one as a whole book because this is a novella and it was quite of a short one. And I read it not only because I wanted but also because I wasn’t ready to leave this universe and characters behind. I have a mini-mini-review on Goodreads though if you want to check it out :P;
Okay, another month gone and I cannot believe we are so near 2016. I mean, we only have two months left. Hey, time, can you slow down a bit?! Jesus!!
October was one weird month even though I turned 27. Especially these last weeks. I was ill, I had a clogged ear, I had tests and I read only a total of five books. Well, it could have been worst but I think I did pretty well 🙂
I haven’t read this book in a long time and since it was the 10th year anniversary – yes, I know about Life and Death and yes, I want it but my finances are pretty bad right now for me to buy it – I thought it would be a good idea to return to Forks. I still adore this story despite it all;
The 5th Wave [The 5th Wave #1] – Rick Yancey (4/5 cups – no review);
This was SO GOOD!!! I was not expecting to literally love this book but I did. I still don’t have a review and I’m not sure if I’ll be able to write it down now but you should definitely read this… it’s really good!;
This book was part of my TBR for Halloween and though it’s not that scary or creepy, it had some paranormal elements to it. It was an adorable story and the illustrations – though this was an ARC and some of them towards the end weren’t finished – were beautiful. The illustrations actually remind me of Tim Burton – hence choosing this for Halloween – but the story is so positive and so adventurous I recommend you guys to try it out;
Ted Saves he World [Ted Saves the World #1] – Bryan Cohen (3/5 – no review);
Another book from my TBR for Halloween and also part of #readwithben read-a-long. I was expecting something totally different but it was a quite decent book. There wasn’t anything too scary for me but it turned out to be a rather fun read for Halloween;
Wait, what? If August was like lightning, September barely happened. How can it be October, my birthday month, already? Do you realise that I’m getting old and I don’t want to? Time, stop going so fast!
September was a sort-of-less good month. I had a lot of plans for it but, with college and my read-a-thon, things didn’t go that well. But, in comparison with August, it went better than what I expected.
Wrap-Up | September
How to Train your Dragon [How to Train your Dragon #1] – Cressida Cowell (4/5);
I actually listened to the audiobook of this one while colouring! I mean, David Tennant narrating it?! Like, duh!! Of course I would be listening to this! I really liked it and I found it adorable. It’s totally different from the movie but it’s as amazing as the DreamWorks version. I don’t have a review for this one though;
I really enjoyed this one! Wasn’t expecting it and I’m so glad that my first official YA western book was really good!;
How To be a Pirate [How to Train your Dragon #2] – Cressida Cowel (4/5);
Another audiobook from this series, again narrated by the one and only David Tennant! This was simply adorable (I need another word for this) and it’s just as good as the first one. I love Tennant’s various voices for the various characters! He’s a genius! Anyway, I highly recommend this series in audiobook. It’s easy to listen while you’re doing something like colouring (like I did hehe xD);
