Monthly Wrap-Up | September 2016

Hello lovely readers and fellow bibliophiles,

A quick life update :

I cannot believe that it is already October, and that I have been at my new job for a month! Everything has been so hectic lately, so I have not had the time to actually read books, and write blog posts! In addition to, I have had a cold for the past week – so I haven’t been feeling all that well in the past few days.

Also, I am applying for University this year, so I have been writing my personal statement and all that – so it’s been quite stressful as well! However, I am glad that I am almost done with my UCAS application and hopefully this week I will be able to send my application off!

Lastly, I am moving! It may not be as exciting to you as it is for me – but the simple fact remains that the place I am moving in – with the family, of course – has a garden! Mother also consented on me buying a shed where I can make a little outdoor library for myself. Although that may not be happening for at least a few more months. But, it’s exciting and I am looking forward to having my own little nook outdoors.

Enough of that, and let’s move on to the books I have read this month!

September Wrap-Up

Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs

The last book in the Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children Trilogy – I was so happy when the paperback version came out this year and once I saw it in Waterstone’s I didn’t even think twice about getting the book. It was a wonderful read, and I think it was a great end to the trilogy. Although I have some questions about the characters – I am happy with how it is!

I just now need to buy the new Tales of the Peculiar!!

A Time to Tour Ghost City by Anjum Choundhury

I was given an eARC of the novella by the author, I gave it a 3.5 stars overall. I don’t really know how to explain the story without completely giving it away. So I’ll just say this – they travel back to time. The story itself was interesting, but I had hoped that the characters would have felt more wholesome, and far more complex to make the story more lively. There’s plenty of action, and sexual tension between the characters – but I didn’t think it was as well executed as it could have been. But world building was great!

(I haven’t written anything in a while, and I feel like my writing style is just going downhill at the moment!!!! My grammar and punctuation are appalling! )

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

I stayed up all night just to read this novel! I simply could not put it down, and I cried my eyes out when everything became clear. My heart broke.

In conclusion, this was a brilliant piece of work, and I highly recommend it!

Improbables by Jonathan Charles Bruce

This was a great novel! I loved it, something I didn’t quite expect if I am completely being honest. If you are a fan of vampires and werewolves and other supernatural beings – I think this book would be a good next read for you. Not only that, but this novel actually touches on the more important side of society and actually address social issues – like discrimination.


Well that is all I have for you guys, for now.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post, and hopefully will see you soon on my next one!

  1. Good luck with Uni applications. UCAS is a pain but it’s so worth it; makes it much easier and you can relax and know it’s being dealt with. Also if you start hearing about people getting offers before you don’t worry about it, things tend to come they just take a bit longer for some people.
