review SPOILER ALERT! 2017-09-19 11:39
Reading Anniversaries: First in a Series & Singles–September Edition

 

 

 

 

These are the books that I read in different Septembers throughout my reading life and have left an impression on me.

 

2016

 

18488

 

I think I have said a lot on this topic and will be saying more in the future. To read what I have been saying, check out Project Frankenstein.

 

2015

I have been known to express my love for this guy every now and then.

 

2014

 

24986

 

I think is one of the very few stories that I have read more than once. Both times, it has affected me in the same way. Even when I knew who the bad guy was the second time around, I was still sad at the futility of it all!

 

2013

If you love reading about iffy characters who can never really be called protags and yet worm their way into your heart, then this series is for you! Plus, the author cares about his readers enough to respond to their tweets:

The Queen of Mystery was born this month. While Miss Marple stories are always fun to read. I recently read Murder on the Orient Express (MotOE) and reviewed it. It is a pity that I didn’t read the entirety of A.C.’s works at a younger age. I am sure I would have appreciated them more. Back then, the twist in the Orient Express would have left me wowed!

 

I started watching Dr. Who recently and while Matt Smith will always be my favorite Doctor since he was also my first, I am enjoying the Peter Capaldi seasons as well. There is an even an episode inspired by MotOE that I wanted to share here. Of course, it has a Whovian twist to it but it was fun to watch!

 

 

 

2012

 

 

I don’t know what I expected these books to be like. I do know that I was pleasantly surprised by them. They were different and I found that refreshing. The second book also reminds me of the Billy & Mandy episode based on the myth:

 

 

 

 

 

9460487

 

A book that starts off with an eerie atmosphere but becomes something different by the time you’ve read half of it. I liked the story and the characters even if I couldn’t connect to them. The movie is supposedly a letdown but I will have to watch it before I can comment on that. Eva Green can do all sorts of creepy roles. I enjoyed watching her in Penny Dreadful, which is yet another series that I have to complete both on the TV screen and paper!

I loved Tigana for the oddest reason: I appreciated the patriotism that one of the characters displayed. I also liked the fact that it is a different shade of epic fantasy — a genre that will always have a special place in my heart.

 

2011

 

6685144

 

 

Every reader has feel-good books. This series is one of mine. When I want to read something that wouldn’t make me think much and where family is always there for you (like mine is), I pick up the next book in this series. So far, the series has continued to be written. I read and reviewed the latest quite recently.

 

 

 

If creeptastic books are your thing, then you might wanna check these two out. The ominous way they are written is much scarier than if the horrors were laid out in front of us. Janni Lee Summer managed to do that in a more subtle way, which is why I went ahead and completed the series. I would love to see movies based on both of these!

 

2003

 

4397

 

I have read other works by J.S. but this one just pierced my heart. I mean, you continue reading a book, thinking that things will get better soon. They didn’t! Then you tell yourself, at least it might have a happy ending. It didn’t!

 

Which books did you read in September that left their mark on you?

Erster Satz | David Whitaker: Doctor Who and the Daleks
Doctor Who And The Daleks - David Whitaker

I stopped the car at last and let the fog close in around me. 

 

I knew I was somewhere on Barnes Common and I had a suspicious idea it was the most deserted part as well. A warm fire and the supper my landlady would have waiting for me seemed as far away as New Zealand. I wondered how long it would take me to walk home to Paddington and the possible answer didn't do anything to cheer me up. 

 

A fitting end to an impossible day, I thought savagely.

Doctor Who: The Angel's Kiss - Melody Malone,Alex Kingston,BBC Worldwide Limited
This audiobook was perfect, made more perfect by the fact that it is narrated by Melody herself, Alex Kingston. I think to have had anyone else narrate this book would have been insulting. Who better to portray River, than the actor who made her the larger-than-life character we all love?!

This was a typical Doctor Who adventure, sans the Doctor. It's like a prequel to "The Angels Take Manhattan". This shows us River in her full Melody Malone persona. She is sexy and a bit naughty without going too over the top. She's funny and witty in a way that is exclusively River Song. The story if full of intrigue as we follow Melody on a case in which she tries to find out who is trying to kill an actor and stumbles into the kind of mess that usually only the Doctor falls into. She handles herself brilliantly, as always, and saves the day...until the next adventure. 

I truly hope they do more of these; because I highly enjoyed this!

Doctor Who: 12 Doctors, 12 Stories - Eoin Colfer,Charlie Higson,Philip Reeve,Michael Scott,Malorie Blackman,Alex Scarrow,Neil Gaiman,Richelle Mead,Marcus Sedgewick,Patrick Ness,Holly Black,Derek Landry

Not a bad read, all in all. Most stories were nice but not extremely memorable. I think the one I like best is the Ninth Doctor's adventure between when Rose turns him down the first time and when he come back for her again.
