It’s finally spooky season!
Hello again, I hope that everyone was able to reach their reading goals for September. I sort of did.
I only had three books that I wanted to get through last month and I made good progress, finishing 2 out of the 3.
My main focus was finishing Midnight Sun by Stephanie Meyer, which took me about the whole month. After finishing, I thought I was done for and I almost didn’t read anything after it. But, after taking a short break, right in the nick of time before September ended, I started and finished Sentimental Memories by Nestor S. Garcia – like I said I would. It being a short collection of poetry; it was a relatively short read. The last book, I did not finish and I feel so bad for not doing so …again.
That book is The Last Wish Introducing The Witcher. Very quickly I just want to say, my inability to finish it has nothing to do with the quality of the book. I am enjoying it very much. Some of the chapters though, are very long and I feel like that has greatly contributed to how long it’s taken me to read through it. Also it is my very first buddy read and I thought I was going to do great but my poor boyfriend who I’m buddy reading with is just stuck waiting for me at like each chapter. So we’re going slowly but we’re getting there.
Now on to October.
So this month I have decided to pick my most recently acquired book as my Book of the Month choice. And, that book is Mosquitoland by David Arnold.
So, a few months back I searched up “books with good first lines” and this was one of the books on that list (along with The First Time She Drowned). It is the story of Mim Malone who is traveling from Mississippi where she lives with her dad all the way to Ohio where her mom lives, after she finds out that her mom is sick. That’s about all I know about this book and I don’t know what to expect but I am bracing myself for some heartbreak – the book just kind of has that feel to it.
I didn’t have any other reads planned for the rest of this month so I might just end up starting my second attempt at reading Nevernight. I had planned to read it in November but it is a longer book than I am used to so I need all the head start I can get.
Either that or you know… actually read and finish The Witcher.
Book Deal Announcement
While scrolling through Twitter I saw a booktuber I follow post a deal for the book “The Never Tilting World” by Rin Chupeco in ebook format. It is currently selling for a whopping $1.99.
So of course I got it and look forward to when I have the chance to read it. Hopefully sometime before December, but I’m a slow reader.
If you don’t mind ebooks and would like to get a copy, you can find the links to your preferred e-reader from the Harper Teen website here.
– Blurb from Harper Teen/Epic Reads Website –
“A world split between day and night. Two sisters who must unite it. The author of The Bone Witch kicks off an epic YA fantasy duology perfect for fans of Furyborn.
Generations of twin goddesses have long ruled Aeon—until one sister’s betrayal split their world in two. A Great Abyss now divides two realms: one cloaked in eternal night, the other scorched beneath an ever-burning sun.
While one sister rules the frozen fortress of Aranth, her twin rules the sand-locked Golden City—each with a daughter by their side. Now those young goddesses must set out on separate, equally dangerous journeys in hopes of healing their broken world. No matter the sacrifice it demands.”
