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!
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!
