How in the heck is it September already?! It’s completely insane that Summer is nearly over, but as it’s that time of the month let’s have a look at what I’ve been reading in August.

 

READ THE LUNAR CHRONICLES!! If you love fairy tales and love fantasy then do it, part of me is sad that I didn’t read Cinder when it was first released, but I don’t know how I would have survived waiting a year between each book. This has definitely been a series worth waiting for. But the most important question of all, do I read the latest Harry Potter?? I really have no clue where I stand, I think I’m put off with the idea that it’s a script. I feel like so much magical detail will be missing. If you’ve read it let me know your thoughts, I kind of feel like I should give it a read.

 

 

My latest buys this month are, The Beast Within by Serena Valentino and A Whole New World by Liz Braswell. After reading Fairest of All by Valentino I was delighted to hear she had another two books on the way, the third being based on Ursula the sea witch. I loved Fairest, and what she did with the character and background of The Evil Queen. So I’m really looking forward to sinking my teeth into this one. The second book I bought I discovered when I found The Beast Within. There are three books all based on the idea of what if, in this case; what if Aladdin never found the lamp? I really love the idea of this as it’s different to all the fairy tale based books I’ve been reading.

 

That’s it for August, this month I’ll be starting Castle in the Air by Diana Wynee Jones, the sequel to Howl’s Moving Castle as my main read at home.

Belle Cora - Phillip Margulies

Pg 205:

 

This is Arabella's theme song, in my opinion, so far.

hurt - nine inch nails - san diego 2014

 

I had the pleasure of attending this concert yesterday - sound garden and nine inch nails. Sound Garden played all their hits, so I was pleased with that since I haven't kept up with their music since the mid-90s. NiN played everything I wanted from their new stuff and well, I love all their old stuff, so... it was perfect. I kept myself together for the entire show until the encore (video above); it was very moving with everyone singing along.

 

They played the same venue I saw them at in 2009, that concert was epic! Jane's Addiction!!! Very thankful to NiN for touring with these bands since, if they were on their own tour, I probably would never have seen them (not because I don't think they are amazing, but because the crowds are generally different).

 

 

Status Update

I will be going offline from September 22nd - November 14th. No Internet at all! Less distractions will hopefully lead to a much more productive experience working on my manuscript and on some music related things.

 

As for reading, I've mostly just been reading stuff that I've read before. While I was sick I read Cleopatra VII: Daughter of the Nile, Egypt, 57 B.C. by Kristiana Gregory because it is short and easy for an addled brain to handle. I'm not sure I will review it. Maybe.

 

Right now I am re-reading The Bhagavad Gita which I tend to read whenever I notice that my temperament is breaking down. I'm not a religious person so most of that stuff I treat as mythology and the rest I take as self-help to better my attitude about whatever is bringing me down. Sometimes I just need a reminder to detach and discard any and all expectations.

 

I'm planning on reading Artful by Peter David before I take off. So I'm also re-reading Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens before I get to that.

 

Yep, that's about it. I hope everyone is having a fantastic week/weekend, especially when it comes to the books you all are reading. :D
