September 2014 Wrap-Up & October TBR

Hello fellow readers. Today I’m going to talk about the books I read in September and the books I hope to read in October.

First off, I only read two books this past month (technically 2.75), as I am still in the process of finishing the third book. As a slower reader, plus my busy schedule, it takes time for me to read larger books, so I have not been able to finish the third book in the “Throne of Glass” series yet.

The first book I finished in September was “Throne of Glass” by Sarah J Maas. I thought this book was a fantastic read and it definitely was outside of what has been being published lately (a lot of dystopians) and so I thought that it was a great concept, fun, engaging characters and plot, and it was definitely 5/5 stars. Here is my blog review and my video review with spoilers.

The second book I finished in September was “Crown of Midnight,” the second book in the series. This book was better than the last, and the characters continued to develop, the plot became darker, and the action was turned up. This is a great sequel considering many sequels tend to lose their zeal as the series goes on, and it definitely deserved the 5/5 stars, in my opinion. Here is my blog review and my video review with spoilers.

The third book I am still trying to finish, though September has come and gone, is “Heir of Fire,” and it is the third book in the series. This book has gotten even better than the last and includes new characters, which means more perspectives, and the storyline flows nicely. Though I don’t have a review on it yet, I do expect to finish it by the end of this week, if not the next, so expect the review to be up! (I’ll link my blog and video reviews here when they’re up.)

NEXT! My October TBR. These are the books I hope to get to reading this month:

  1. The Merciless” by Danielle Vega
  2. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer” by Michelle Hodkin
  3. Asylum” by Madeline Roux
  4. The Graveyard Book” by Neil Gaiman
  5. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” by Ransom Riggs

What I hope to do is read all of the Mara Dyer series because the third book will be coming out in the next couple of weeks and I’d rather read an entire series before moving onto the next book, so that also means I’m going to try to read the second books in the Asylum and Miss Peregrine series, but we’ll see how much I can get read this month.

If you have any suggestions as to what I should read first after I finish my current book, let me know in the comments below.
