September Wrap Up

Hiya Everyone!

How is everyone doing? Are y’all excited for the upcoming season? I know I am πŸ˜€
Gimme all the snowstorms, rainclouds and thunderstorms the big bad world can give and I’m happy. I absolutely LOVE winter and all that comes with it.
But before all that can happen I need to wrap up September and say goodbye to good ol’ Summer.

During the past month I dragged myself from a reading slump and participated in aΒ Throne Of Glass read-along πŸ˜€Β Empire Of Storms was finally released and I discovered that some of my fave books were coming out in October -WHICH IS FRIGGIN NOW AND I’M SO EXCITED I CANT EVEN JAJHHHFUVIRJRJE- and November.

*gets act together*

So I preordered like crazy and am currenlty expecting at least 4 books to be delivered to me these upcoming months (with a bunch of already published books). This list includes:
– Gemina
– Frost Like Night
– TFSA
– Notable Shadowhunters and Downworlders.

That said, I want to wrap up September by going over the books I bought during that month and the ones I read.


The books I bought last month.

IMG_20160928_142541.jpgΒ Last month I ended up buying these books (and a couple more that hadn’t arrived at the picture moment). I can’t say that I have read them all too. I still need to get started onΒ A Torch Against The Night andΒ Never Ever. For some reason they haven’t been able to draw me in so they’re on the ‘unread’ shelf still *whoops*

I also boughtΒ Illuminae, The Girl at MidnightΒ andΒ The Shadow Hour this month but onlyΒ Illuminae has arrived.


The books I read last month.

I read a lot this month. Even tried to catch up with my reading goal on Goodreads but I’m still a little behind… Evenso, here are the books that I read last month:


Throne of Glass series.

Like I said, I participated in a TOG read-along and read the whole series in one go finishing the reread session with the release ofΒ Empire of Storms.Β You can add the book on Goodreads when you click here. And read my review of EoS when you click here.

The Star-Touched Queen.

This book really surprised me. Lately, I’ve been in a Mid-Eastern kind of mood -there’s TWATD to blame for that- and this book looked like it belonged to that mood but I think my hopes were up too high resulting into a let-down when it comes to the story.

This Savage Song.

This book drove me insane for a while. It is soooooo good that I felt like I had to cancell everything in my life just to get this done. It’s the first Victoria Schwab novel I have read and I’m definitely going to try more of her writing. I hear great things about her other series. My TBR keeps growing and growing xD

The Shadow Hour.

The Shadow Hour (The Girl at Midnight, #2)

The hardcopy of this book hasn’t arrived yet but since the Ebook was cheap, I bought that first. It was long do for me to read the sequel toΒ A Girl at Midnight so I just had to have the book and read it already.

Illuminae.

A friend of mine had been bugging me about this book for quite a while but reading the synopsis I just didn’t… It just didn’t feel like a book that I would enjoy. Science-fiction is not really my thing (other than watchingΒ The 100). I’ve never watchedΒ Star Wars from beginning to end, I never could muster up the concentration to sit through aΒ Star Trek movie or enjoyed any of the Space movies that were released last year (or was it two years ago..)
But I read it anyway AND. IT. BLEW. MY. FREAKING. MIND!

I haven’t written a review yet.


And that’s the wrap up πŸ˜€

I’ll upload the review onΒ Illuminae as soon as possible. I need some time to get my thoughts straight about that one because it left my mindΒ and my heart in shambles.

I’ll talk to you soon!
With love,
Leanne

  1. Haha, I was the same way when I got my copy of This Savage Song. I remember being on a trip to Las Vegas but I had to have it with me. I’m reading Illuminae right now and enjoying it so far. πŸ™‚
