Displaying 20160928_010902.png

(Sorry for the terrible lighting, there’s been some pretty depressing weather lately.)

I had a pretty good reading month and am pretty proud of my wrap up for September. My October TBR will be up soon!

The Last Council (Amulet #4) - Kazu Kibuishi
Finished September 01, 2016 | Pages: ­282 | Rating: 4/5

This is a good addition to the series, as the novel moves along the plot really seems to pick up.

The Last Council (Amulet, #4)

The Well of Ascension (Mistborn #2) - Brandon Sanderson
Finished September 01, 2016 | Pages: ­763 | Rating: 4/5

Definitely not as good as the first book but a solid sequel. I will definitely continue the trilogy soon.

The Well of Ascension (Mistborn, #2)

The Little Prince - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Finished September 03, 2016 | Pages: ­109 | Rating: 4/5

A short and meaningful read. Definitely recommend.

First & Then - Emma Mills 
Finished September 04, 2016 | Pages: ­267 | Rating: 4/5

!!!

Loved it.

This book was a modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice. Naturally I absolutely loved this novel, it’s adorable and I definitely recommend.

First & Then

Bridget Jones's Diary (Bridget Jones #1) - Helen Fielding
Finished September 05, 2016 | Pages: ­271 | Rating: 3.5/5

I’m not entirely sure what I think about this one. In some moments I was laughing out loud because did she really just say that? but at other times I was dying of boredom. This is definitely one of those times where the movie is better then the book.

Bridget Jones's Diary (Bridget Jones, #1)

Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World (Scott Pilgrim #2) - Bryan Lee O'Malley
Finished September 07, 2016 | Pages: ­200 | Rating: 4/5

Really, really enjoying this series!

Scott Pilgrim & the Infinite Sadness (Scott Pilgrim #3) - Bryan Lee O'Malley
Finished September 09, 2016 | Pages: ­192 | Rating: 4.5/5

Two things:
01 The Vegan Powers!!!
02 I’m getting a Ronan and Gansey vibe from Wallace and Scott’s friendship (and I am digging it!)

Scott Pilgrim & the Infinite Sadness (Scott Pilgrim, #3)

The Storybook Knight - Helen Docherty & Thomas Docherty
Finished September 09, 2016 | Pages: ­32| Rating: 3/5

As a bit of a break I thought I might read a story book. I would have loved to be read this before bed when I was younger so I can only imagine that when it comes out kids will love to hear it!

The Storybook Knight

Safe Haven - Nicholas Sparks
Finished September 09, 2016 | Pages: ­365 | Rating: 3/5

Just my opinion, but I really think the movie was much better.

Safe Haven

My Lady Jane - Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton & Jodi Meadows
Finished September 11, 2016 | Pages: ­491 | Rating: 5/5

!!!

I cannot praise this book enough! It had me laughing out loud constantly, a great cast of characters and a brilliant twist on history.

p.s. the audiobook is honestly one of the best I’ve ever listened to.

Review

Looking For Alibrandi - Melina Marchetta
Finished September 12, 2016 | Pages: ­261 | Rating: 3/5

I read this book for class so as is aways the way I did not enjoy it. I found the main character to be too whiny and felt like the way some of the characters spoke was unrealistic. An overall miserable experience.

Looking for Alibrandi

Welcome To Night Vale - Joseph Fink & Jeffrey Cranor
Finished September 18, 2016 | Pages: ­401 | Rating: 3/5

I really wanted to enjoy this because I have recently started the podcasts, which I love. I’m not sure why I didn’t love this as much I guess it was just kind of off. I found myself wanting to skip bits and ended up upping the speed of the audio so it would be over sooner. I will definitely continue to listen to the podcasts and pretty much just try to ignore the existence of this novel.

Welcome to Night Vale

The Girl Who Drank The Moon - Kelly Barnhill
Finished September 20, 2016 | Pages: ­368 | Rating: 3/5

Meh. This book felt too long and too wordy. Maybe it’ just me but I felt like the author was trying too hard to have ‘magical’ writing, the kind that Maggie Stiefvater has.

Review

The Girl Who Drank the Moon

The Magician's Nephew (The Chronicles of Narnia (Publication Order) #6) 
- C.S. Lewis
Finished September 21, 2016 | Pages: ­221 | Rating: 2/5

Unfortunately I just didn’t enjoy this. I tried to read this a few years ago but put it down and then ended up giving my copy away. Everyone seems to love this series so even though I didn’t care for this one I will probably pick up the next ones over time.

The Magician's Nephew (The Chronicles of Narnia, #1)

Every Heart a Doorway (Wayward Children #1) - Seanan McGuire
Finished September 23, 2016 | Pages: ­173 | Rating: 4.5/5

I loved this and cannot wait for the next book!! I seriously recommend this novel because two of the characters are part of the LGBTQ+ community and it’s just part of who they are and not used as a plot device.

Every Heart a Doorway (Wayward Children #1)

Prince of the Elves (Amulet #5) - Kazu Kibuishi
Finished September 25, 2016 | Pages: ­208 | Rating: 3/5

There’s some more of Cogsley and the other robots in this instalment so e got to see Cogsley and his beloved Wyvern. They are adorable!

Prince of the Elves (Amulet, #5)

Escape from Lucien (Amulet #6) - Kazu Kibuishi 
Finished September 26, 2016 | Pages: ­224 | Rating: 4/5

Possibly one of my favourites so far. The plot is really kicking off now!

Escape from Lucien (Amulet, #6)

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar 
Children #1) - Ransom Riggs
Finished September 27, 2016 | Pages: ­382 | Rating: 2.5/5

And once again the hype gets to me. I really wanted to like this but unfortunately I just really didn’t.

a) The pictures seemed a bit unnecessary.
b) The romance really freaked me out.
c) I think the movie will be a lot better.

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children, #1)

Firelight (Amulet #7) - Kazu Kibuishi
Finished September 27, 2016 | Pages: ­199 | Rating: 5/5

Well… shit. I felt soo many things reading this that I’ve actually tired myself out. Can’t believe I have to wait ’til next year for book 8!

Firelight (Amulet, #7)

Scott Pilgrim Vs. the Universe (Scott Pilgrim #5) - Bryan Lee O'Malley
Finished September 30, 2016 | Pages: ­178 | Rating: 4.5/5

1. Possibly one of my favourites of the series so far
2. Soo much happened
3. Leading up to a great ending – there are still soo may secrets
4. Ramona and Scott have finally acknowledged that they aren’t good people a lot of the time.

Scott Pilgrim Vs. the Universe (Scott Pilgrim, #5)

Scott Pilgrim's Finest Hour (Scott Pilgrim #6) - Bryan Lee O'Malley
Finished September 30, 2016 | Pages: ­245 | Rating:4.5/5

I really enjoyed this book, it was a solid finale. The characters really came into their own, which made it a more fulfilling and satisfying finale. Definitely recommend the series.
