September Happenings and Wrap Up

Wrap Up

This is the most I’ve ever read in my life. I’m excited that Bout of Books was a success, but boy was it intense (sickness didn’t help). I’ll pass on January, but I do plan on participating in May. Hopefully I’ll make it to four books in May!

A lot of solid reads this month, my favorite being The Magicians and the surprise being An Ember in the Ashes. I thought I was 100% D.O.N.E. with Dystopia YA novels, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. So much so that I just got the second book in hardback (review next Thursday!).

I finished the following books this month:

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child     7.5/10

Slaughterhouse Five – Kurt Vonnegut     10/10

The Magicians – Lev Grossman     9/10

Watchmen – Alan Moore     8/10

BOB 17:

Bloodlines – Richelle Mead     3/10

An Ember in the Ashes – Sabaa Tahir     7/10

Euphoria – Lily King     6/10

September’s pick is North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell

NS3NS2 NS1

This is my first re-read (I think I have six on the list?) and I’m so excited! One of my favorites and it’s been around ten years since I’ve read it.

Also, sorry Civil War buffs, but it’s not this North and South:

NS5

Literary Travels

I have other hobbies/loves aside from reading and writing, and traveling is a must for my life. But until unless I rob a bank, I’ll have to stick to finding cool day trips in my area.

I was recently at a Shakespeare and Austen exhibit in D.C. and thought it would be cool to share pics and thoughts about the exhibit.

I don’t think this will be a frequent segment, but I would like to try it out. We shall see how it goes. Look out for the post in the second week of September.

Look out for…

Two books I’m pumped to get to this month are A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir and Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven. Both reviews will be out this month!

Torch      Universe

This is shaping up to be a great month for reading.

Have a great September,

  1. Enjoy rereading North and South! I’ve read it once and loved it. I’m mixed about things like Bout of Books. I don’t feel like pushing myself to read makes me enjoy it more (quite the opposite). Especially if you were sick! I guess I’m just not a “social” reader. Glad to see you loved Slaughterhouse Five, that is such a cool book.
