September wrap up
White Lies - Jeremy Bates
Hark! The Herald Angels Scream - Christopher Golden
John Peters in the land of Demons - A.H. Matai
Loch Ness Revenge - Hunter Shea
Doomsday - Samie Sands
Rose Cottage - Mary Stewart
Unsettled Spirits - J. Matthew Saunders
Barnabas Tew and The Case Of The Missing Scarab - Columbkill Noonan
The Hermit's Creepy Pet (Single Shot Short Story Series Book 10) - Terry M. West
Trapped in Room 217 - Thomas Kingsley Troupe

 

Wow, 14 books this month! That's a lot for me. Admittedly I was going for the shorter ones to get through as many as possible. I do have some reading done on longer ones too, so we'll just see how things go in the coming month.

 

Stand outs this month are The Last Werewolf, White Lies and Pieces of Her. These were all really good. I got various levels of enjoyment from most of them, only one got below 3 stars from me.

 

Bingo reads continue! But I also have 4 Netgalley books that aren't for Bingo squares so will need to at least make a start on those. Not much sample reading during Bingo. I'll have to devote some time to that in November.

September wrap-up 2017
Faerie Tale: A Novel of Terror and Fantasy - Raymond E. Feist
The Day of the Triffids - John Wyndham
Symphony of Ruin: A Labyrinth of Souls Novel - Christina Lay
A Spark of Justice - J.D. Hawkins
Cabal - Clive Barker
Children of Chaos - Greg F. Gifune
Stalking Jack the Ripper - Kerri Maniscalco
Mirror Mirror - Anthony M. Strong
A Latent Dark - Martin Kee
Helltown - Jeremy Bates

Wow. I finished 16 books this month! That's not a lot to some of you speed readers, but it is for me. I average 4-6 books a month usually.

 

I'm also very close to finishing 2 more. :D

 

Just one of this month's books was a Netgalley read, Symphony of Ruin. The others came out of either my A-list or my free books slush pile, or were sourced from Amazon's daily freebies or in the case of Classics, from Gutenberg.

 

I didn't read any samples all month. I had about a dozen saved up before Bingo started, but the pile has been growing from all the books I see from others' Bingo reads! I'm not going to tackle that folder until November. It will be interesting to see how many collect up!

 

So, for October, Bingo continues. Once I hit blackout, if I manage it, I'll try the other books from my free books slush that I put aside for back-ups in case some of my choices turn out to be duds. It will give me a start on cleaning out the free books backlog!

Bumper crop for me this month, 20 books plus a short story!

 

Best reads were:

The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Garman

It Was A Dark and Stormy Night by Snoopy

Demoniac Dance by Jaq D. Hawkins

Bloodfire by Helen Harper

The Locked Door by Austin Crawley

 

Some surprises there and several of these were short, but I pushed myself extra for Bingo. One read was a Netgalley that didn't go on Bingo. I'm just finishing one more of those and have two more waiting, but I have some longer Classic books lined up for some of my remaining Bingo squares. If I finish all my Bingo and Netgalley reads on October, I'll be happy.

End of the Summer Wrap Up and October TBR.
Catch a Falling Star - Kim Culbertson
Lola and the Boy Next Door - Stephanie Perkins
Anna and the French Kiss - Stephanie Perkins
The Break-Up Artist - Philip Siegel
The Murder Complex - Lindsay Cummings
Open Road Summer - Emery Lord

So I decided to do a end of  the summer wrap up instead of a September wrap up because I'm about 100% sure I only read one book in September. I know I know it's bad but to be far school started and I had a project I saved for last minute. Ugh. I'm ashamed too. But everyone does it. After all it is summer. Okay as for the books I read in summer.

 

Anna and the French kiss.

Omg this book is so cute and perfect for the summer. The romance and setting is so well written.

Lola and the Boy Next Door.

(only book I read in September)

After reading Anna I just had to read lola. Lola does not disappoint.

Murder Complex

Th...s...this book messes with your mind. But in a good way.

Open road summer

This was the perfect book at the perfect time because I was also traveling across the U.S. Which made me love it 10x more.

Breakup artist

It has a strong plot line and idea but for me it was extremely predictable.

Catch a falling star.

This book was really good, it's Chiquita unique at the same time.

 

I think I know why I only read one book in September. It's because I didn't have Isla and the happily ever after. Sob T-T. I should have taken advantage of my summer because I'm never going to end up reading a book if my school has this much testing a week. Literally everyday of the week I have at least one test. This has been happening for two weeks now. I NEED SLEEP.

 

October TBR.

Since its a trend going around bookbloggers and booktuber I'm going to try to read some horror but mostly fantasy because that's me. FYI the trend is that October is a themed month where u have to read some horror. But I'm baby and I can't read horror. If I do I'm going to crap my pants.

Throne of glass by Sarah J Mass

AAAASSSSSASSSIANS !!!!! what more do I have to say.

Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson

I'm so excited for this there's so much hype around this book.

End game: the calling by James Frey & Nils Johnson-Shelton

I'm so excited for this book the plot and everything is so epic but I heard bad things about the author.

I'm just going to try it anyways.

Trail by fire by Josephine angelini.

The plot just seems so epic.Plus parallel dimensions.

Anna dressed in blood by Kendare Blake 

this is the horror book for October because i can't and don't do horror anything.

 

I'm probably going to stick to my tbr. Though I doubt that I'm going to ever finish all of it. If I do ( highly unlikely) I might read books like fan girl or the jewel. Who knows. Only those who are fortune tellers. If you are one can you tell me if I got a 100 on any of my tests..... I though so.

 

*reviews for this will be up soon. When they are, I will link them as titles. 

Baaiiii have a great day, evening, or night. How would I possibly know.

well that ought to give you nightmares. Night mares are not intended, it was just a fun Halloween photo. 

(Hey, you have to admit its beautiful and creds to the talented person who made it.)

September Wrap Up

So I only read 3 books this month, which kind of disappoints me because I thought I was going to be able to read more...  I've just been in kind of a reading slump for the past couple of weeks, but I'm hoping to get out of in this month!

 

August Wrap Up

 

READ: Monday1st

Boy Proof- Cecil Castellucci {4/5 Stars}

~I read this novel in a day. It was amazing.  I haven't read anything by this author before, nor had I ever heard her name before.  I was unsure going into it because I hadn't heard of her or this book.  But it has a blurb by John Green! Soo.... This book was so much more than I expected!

READ: Thursday 11th

To All the Boys I've Loved Before- Jenny Han {5/5 Stars}

~The first novel in the To All the Boys I've Loved Before trilogy or maybe duology...? Series? I'm really not sure.  What I am sure of is that I loved this book to death! I could relate to the main character so well, and the story was beautifully written! I have a full review of it here >(To All the Boys I've Loved Before Full Length Review)

READ: Tuesday 16th

We Were Liars- E. Lockhart {4/5 Stars}

~This is the third book I've read by E. Lockhart, so I wasn't surprised by the writing style, but that isn't to say that I didn't enjoy it. Because I did! This book was just a roller coaster ride and I really did like it.  A few things threw me off though and made it so I couldn't give it 5/5 starts.  I don't want to say to much and spoil it, so here's my spoiler review> (We Were Liars Full Length Spoiler Review)
