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
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!
