October Wrap-Up!

October is almost over and I wasn’t really planning on uploading my monthly wrap-up until tomorrow but, well, I have nothing better to do and I’m bored. I’ve read six books this month and I’m gonna start doing some sort of mini-reviews on my wrap-ups to make up for not fully reviewing every book I read. And I think just throwing titles here and there and just telling my rating and whether I like the book or not no longer seems enough for me in a way. So here we go: 1. The House of Hades by Rick Riordan 2. Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake 3. The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan 4. Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake 5. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin 6. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ramson Riggs

October Playlist!

With October being almost over (I still need to process this…) I thought it was a good time to upload another monthly playlist, don’t you think? These 20 songs have been on repeat almost all month long. Some I discovered a week or so ago but they made it to the list because they were awesome and some others have been my favourites for a long time but I kind of rediscovered them this October. We also have instrumental. You guy know I can’t live with it; it’s what accompanies me while reading so of course some of them will be in the playlist.

Top Ten Tuesday # 9 (Ten Characters I Want To Be For Halloween)

TOP TEN TUESDAY   is a weekly book meme hosted by   The Broke and The Bookish . This week TTT is all about characters we want to be for Halloween. It’s true most of my choices are hard ones. I mean not all of us are great dressmakers but still it would be fun to be them for Halloween.

The Archived & The Unbound by Victoria Schwab

I read these two books back in March and I did write a review for both of them but I was not really happy with it so I ended up deleting it. I wasn’t going to upload them but since Halloween is next week (and I changed the things I didn’t like out of the reviews) I thought these two would be a nice read for those who like me, enjoy reading unsettling books but at the same time don’t want to be scared to death. Title :   The Archived Author : Victoria Schwab Pages : 328 (Hardcover) Publication Date : January 22 nd 2013 Publisher : Disney Hyperion Summary : “ Imagine a place where the dead rest on shelves like books. Each body has a story to tell, a life seen in pictures that only Librarians can read. The dead are called Histories, and the vast realm in which they rest is the Archive .”

The Random Question Tag!

The lovely Jules over at The Book of Jules tagged me a while ago to do The Random Question Tag and I’m finally doing it today! I have the feeling that my blog lately is a combination of Top Ten Tuesdays and Tags but I don’t feel like reviewing the books I’ve been reading (you should know by now that I don’t review every book I read) so yep! That’s the reason, I do apologize though. I might do a combined review of both Anna Dressed in Blood and Girl of Nightmares when I finished the latter. But don’t quote me on that because I’m not quite enjoying it and I just don’t wanna do a review that’s all over the place, you know? … I believe I’m rambling now, so I’ll shut up and answer the questions:

Top Ten Tuesday # 8 (Top New Series I Want To Start)

TOP TEN TUESDAY   is a weekly book meme hosted by   The Broke and The Bookish . Hello yet again for another weekly fix of Top Ten Tuesday. This week's topic is about the top 10 new series I want to start. And for making this easier the series we can pick up can be 2 years old.  I do have to say that I cheated in one of them. The first book in this series was published in 2011 (three years ago) but you know, I’m still really excited to read it. Well, I’m excited to read all of them to be honest. And here we go:

'Project 10 Book'

A month ago, Lauren over at A Blonde Librarian posted a post explaining she is going on a spending ban, which basically means she is not buying any books for the time being. And I thought it was an amazing idea and decided to join as well. So basically Project 10 Book means that I won’t be buying any books until I’ve read 10 books from my TBR which is incredible humongous (you don’t wanna know). Sometimes I wish I can freeze time because the amount of books that are published every other week that I want to read is outrageous.

Top Ten Tuesday # 7 (Ten Places Books Have Made Me Want To Visit)

TOP TEN TUESDAY   is a weekly book meme hosted by   The Broke and The Bookish . One of the many benefits of reading is the possibility of going places without really leaving your house, or well, the place where you read. And it is no secret books have the ability of making the reader want to visit places, whether they are real or not. Sometimes this can be frustrating for two main reasons: one, if the place does not exist you can’t physically visit it and two, if you are a broke Uni student you can’t afford to visit the real ones. Either way, it sucks. But anyways, at the end of the day I can still just grab a book and go everywhere. Cool, huh? And people say reading is a waste of time… 

20 Things You Probably Didn't Know About Me Tag

The lovely and amazing Jess @ My Reading Dress (seriously her posts are amazing and she is hilarious!) tagged me to do The 20 things you probably didn’t know about me tag. So, without further ado here are my answers…

Top Ten Tuesday # 6 (Top Ten Character-Driven Novels)

TOP TEN TUESDAY   is a weekly book meme hosted by   The Broke and The Bookish .  This Tuesday the topic is character-driven novels, and I was a little reluctant to do this week theme because normally most novels are a mix between character-driven and plot-driven and I truly had a hard time choosing the books and in the end I went for those where characters are more important than plot/action.

September Wrap-Up!

Considering previous months, September can’t be considered a great reading month for me but I’m happy with the result. My knee has not improved and so it has made me a little bit moody all month long which affected my reading, not gonna lie. Fortunately the seven books I’ve read were great and I’m pleased about it. 1.  Obsidian  by Jennifer L. Armentrout 2.  Onyx  by Jennifer L. Armentrout 3.  Ready Player One  by Ernest Cline 4.  Opal  by Jennifer L. Armentrout 5.  Origin  by Jennifer L. Armentrout 6.  I Was a Teenage Ghost Hunter  by Brian K. Henry (ebook) 7.  The Mark of Athena  by Rick Riordan
