It’s quite frightening to think it’s now November, which means before you know it it’ll be Christmas!!

 

It’s safe to say I was rather determined to finish more books after last month. At the start of the month I had read 21 out of the 30 books I wanted to read this month.

 

In this post I wanted to share with you some of my favourite books not only perfect for Halloween, but perfect for the winter months drawing closer. There are the classics like Frankenstein and Dracula, or you could go for a short story such as The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy and Other Stories by Tim Burton. This is such a quickly little book filled with illustrations just as wonderfuly bizarre.

 

Or for something to really sink your teeth into try Anna Dressed in Bloodby Kendare Blake (review) and the sequel Girl of Nightmares (review). I won’t lie I was a tad nervous about reading these as I don’t do “scary” books, but I really loved these. But let’s not talk about what happened in the basement or the forest.

I’m so frustrated at myself over last month, I was dying to finish Winter even though I knew I wouldn’t be able to thanks to my week off work. I’m also annoyed I didn’t get to finish Castle in the Air whilst I was off so I could start the final book. But I guess you can’t help being ill.

 

 

Last month I treated myself to the second installment by Victoria Averyard, Glass Sword and the fifth book in the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Mass. Due to my preference to read a series all together I’ve been slowly collecting them, somehow not realising Empire of Storms was the fifth book!! Which means I can finally start reading next year, had I realised sooner I would have started them this year.

 

I’m not entirely sure what I’m going to start reading this month at home. I’ve got a couple of series still on my list I need to start but I’m also toying with the idea of reading some stand alone books. Give myself a bit of a break.

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.

I didn’t get a chance to talk more about Vampire Academy as I had so much to cram in. Although I struggled with Rose to begin with I love how she developed and matured, I especially loved that Mead separated Lissa and Rose. It completely changed the game. Rose had to deal with the choices she made, deciding to leave her life behind to track down the man she loved without so much as a explanation could have broken the girls friendship. And choosing to leave meant she could not longer be there to protect Lissa, but being bonded through spirit Rose had to share every moment she couldn’t be there for her. And for Lissa it meant putting her trust in someone who didn’t share a bond, trusting that Rose would come back. Not to mention dealing with the responsibilities and pressures that come with living at Court.

Been a busy week and it's going to stay a busy week. Chilling out to Blackmill's song Spirit of Life on their album Miracle.

 

Stay cool people...
