September + October 2017 Wrap Up!

I have not been a vivacious reader lately, so since I have only read a few books in the last 2 months, I decided to combine the books I read in September and October into one big wrap up. Hopefully I will start picking up the pace soon, but with NaNoWriMo and school it will be challenging but I am determined to at least read 3 books in November! Anyways, here are the books I read in September and October:

Geekerella by Ashley PostonĀ

This was the one book I read in September and it took me the entire month to read it despite being a short, fun contemporary. I did finish it though and overall really enjoyed it. Geekerella follows a girl named Elle who is obsessed with a sci-fi TV show her father used to love before he died, and when she sees a cosplay contest in celebration of the reboot of the TV series, she enters, the prize being a ticket to ExcelsiCon, she jumps at the chance to make her fangirl dreams true. This is such a fun and entertaining read that I read during a time where I was kind of in a reading slump. This book definitely brought me out of it and I was really glad I finally picked up this newer release! 4/5 stars

Ruby Red by Kerstin GierĀ 

Ruby Red

Ruby Red is a book I rave about on my blog a lot, and as I have mentioned before, it is the perfect to read during the fall time. It takes place in London, has time travel and witty characters that you will love. Ruby Red follows Gwen, a sixteen year old girl born into a time travelling gene, however, her cousin Charlotte is the one believed to possess the gene. That is, until Gwen is taken back in time and her entire world is flipped upside down. This is the first book in the Ruby Red trilogy, and every single book in this trilogy is amazing so if you have NOT checked these books out please do! 4.5 stars

Simon VS the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Abertalli

I decided to pick this book up because the movie will be coming out in spring 2018, and it is also a book I have heard plenty of people rave about. Simon VS the Homo Sapiens Agenda follows Simon, a gay teenager who is “blackmailed” into setting his friend up with this guy named Marty. The book is really light hearted though, and I absolutely flew through this book in a single day!

Those are the three books I read in the months of September and October and I hoped you enjoyed. Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: NaNoWriMo Prep #5!

Reading Update!

During the months of August and September, I read a grand total of 1 1/2 books…yeah not too impressive. On Thursday though, I finally finished Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier! I think I have been finally pulled out of my reading rut and am finally ready to keep on reading. Currently I am now reading Simon VS the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Abertalli, and am about a hundred pages into it already. It is such a fast paced, light hearted and enjoyable read that I have no doubt I will be able to finish it this weekend. Today I am doing a lot of traveling as well as tomorrow, so I plan on getting quite a bit of reading done. Hopefully I will finish Simon today and get started on my next read, The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater, because it is the perfect book for the fall time and I am excited to continue on with this series!

That is all for my reading update and I hope you enjoyed. Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: Series I Haven’t Finished…

October 2017 TBR!

September wasn’t the best reading month, but I plan on turning things around in the month of October. I tried to choose books that gave me a cozy or dark vibe, so here are the books I plan to read!

The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater

The Dream Thieves is the second book in The Raven Cycle series, which is a dark, whimsical series that follows a unique cast of characters. In the first book, The Raven Boys, we follow Blue, a sixteen year old girl from a family of psychics who had never showed any signs of possessing the same gift. That is, until one night when the soon-to-be dead walk by, and she sees one named Gansey. Things get complicated though, when she meets the not-yet-dead version of Gansey in real life, and she struggles to figure out what how they are connected. There is also a bit of Welsh mythology in this series which I thought was really cool, and I overall really enjoyed the first book and hopefully I enjoy this one too!

Simon VS the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

This book has so much hype around it so I thought it was about time I pick it up. It is also going to become a movie that comes out sometime in 2018 and stars Nick Robinson as well as some other very popular actors. Simon VS the Homo Sapiens Agenda, follows our main character named Simon, who is not-so-openly gay. But when an email falls into the wrong hands, his secret is at the risk of being exposed unless he plays wingman for the class clown, Martin. I haven’t read a book like this, but since everyone who has read it loves it, I have no doubt I will too.

Ruby Red by Kerstin Grier

Ruby Red

Honestly, this is the perfect book to read during the fall time because it is dark and has magic. It is just a book that I can picture reading on a rainy day with a cup of earl grey tea…specifically earl grey tea. Ruby Red follows a girl named Gwen who comes from a family of time travelers, but it is her cousin Charlotte who is believed to possess the gene. But when Gwen finds herself transported back to the past, secrets slowly begin to unravel and the spotlight is shone on her as she is thrust into the world of time traveling, along with her annoyingly handsome counterpart, Gideon. I love, love, love this book and talking about it makes me want to not only re read it, but watch the movie as well!

Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Titan’s Curse by Rick Riordan (Graphic Novel)

I have been meaning to read this graphic novel since I bought it…but just haven’t. I am committed to read it once I finish Geekerella by Ashley Poston, and I am so excited to read a book I love in graphic novel format! This is the third book in the Percy Jackson series, which follows a boy named Percy Jackson who is brought to a special camp called Camp Half-Blood, which is for people like him, demigods. The books are filled with quests, adventure and action, along with awesome characters that you can’t help but love!

That is all for my October 2017 TBR, and I hope you enjoyed. Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: October 2017 Talk!
