Welcome to my September Wrap Up. I had a great reading month, finishing 10 books (7 books off my TBR). I also received 3 ARC’s this month, and I continued my new goal of reading 1 Shakespeare play and 10 Shakespeare Sonnets, as well as 5 Brother’s Grimm fairy-tales, and 3 ‘books’ from Les Miserable by Victor Hugo. I hope to keep this up every month for the rest of the year. I guess we will see if that actually happens.
I have reviews up or coming up for these books so as usual this is just going to be a brief run down on each book I read.
Without further ado, let’s get into my September Wrap Up…
Five Go Adventuring Again by Enid Blyton: I absolutely love The Famous Fave books and this one was awesome. It was great getting to read about much-loved characters going on another adventure and saving the day. It is not surprising that Enid Blyton’s books are classics. A must read book for all kids.
Love Wins by Debbie Cenziper: This book was amazing. I knew it would be good but I was overwhelmed by how emotional it was. This is a moment in history that I wont forget and getting to read about it from the perspective of the people who were involved in it was truly wonderful. A must read for everyone.
Geekerella by Ashley Poston: This was a quick cute read. I really enjoyed the characters and the plot of this story. I loved seen elements of Cinderella make their way into this story, it was really creative. I am really glad I read this book and I know I will be reading it again in the future.
Sleep Affirmations by Jennifer Williamson: This book was beautiful. I really enjoyed these wonderful affirmations and I felt really calm and relaxed the more I read. The layout of this book was great and the illustrations that accompanied the affirmations really added an extra layer to this book.
The World’s Worst Children 3 by David Walliams: I loved this book. I was so excited when I found out there was going to be a third book in this series and it didn’t disappoint. The brilliant partnership of David Walliams and Tony Ross has once again delivered an outstanding book. This book is a must have for all young readers.
The Escape Artists by Neal Bascomb: This book was amazing. I love military history and I love the fact that I had no pervious knowledge about this escape before going into this book. It was perfectly written with amazing details, photographs and maps. I am so glad I have this book to add to my bookshelf. A must have book for everyone who has an interest in History.
Charles Dickens: A Christmas Carol by Tony Mitton: This book was absolutely beautiful I am a massive fan of A Christmas Carol and this book was the perfect retelling. This is the perfect book to read aloud with children and the amazing illustrations by Mike Redman perfectly compliment the story and give an extra layer to an already wonderful book.
Best Foot Forward by Adam Hills. This book was awesome. It has been a while since a book has made me laugh out loud, yet I couldn’t stop laughing whilst reading this book. Not only was it funny and insightful it really warmed my heart. I can wait to share this book with my friends and family.
It Ends With You by S.K. Wright: I really enjoyed this book. I wasnt sure about it when I picked it up, but I was wonderful. I couldn’t put it down and ended up reading it in one sitting. I built slow but once it sped up I couldn’t wait to see what happened next. I am so glad I decided to read this book.
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas: This book was fantastic. I can’t believe I waited so long to read it. This book is an absolute must read for everyone. It is brilliantly written, powerful and utterly gut-wrenching. If you havent yet read this book you need to do it now.
Shakespeare: I read 1 Shakespeare play and 10 Sonnets in September. I read the following Shakespeare Works This Month:
Les Miserable: For those who don’t know this novel, it is broken up into character sections with each character section containing ‘books’. Within each of these books are chapters. These ‘books’ come in various sizes, it is just the luck of the draw really. I hope to read 3 ‘books’ each month. I have read the following ‘books’ this month:
The Idyll In The Rue Plumet And The Epic Of The Rue Saint-Denis:
– Book 9: Where Are They Going?
– Book 10: 5 June 1832
– Book 11: The Straw In The Wind
Brother’s Grimm: I am happy to say that I not only completed my goals of reading 5 Brother Grimm Fairy Tales in September, I doubled it. I read the following Tales this month:
The Foundling Bird
The Wishing-Table, The Ass, And The Cudgel
One-Eye, Two-Eyes, And Three-Eyes
The Devil With The Three Golden Hairs
The Girl Without Hands
That’s it for my September Wrap Up. I hope you all had a great reading month. Let me know what you guys read this month in the comments section.
Until my October Wrap Up…
