September Wrap-up And October TBR

img_5992

Hey guys!! It’s already end of this month and I am super happy because I love cozy clothes and snuggling in blankets! ❤ Anyone else??

This month I actually managed  to read everything that was in my TBR for September and a bit more! I read 8 books. Although 2 of them were re-reads.

Also I am super proud that I ended all my Summer reading list in the month! (a bit late but I DID it).

So here they are:

18635016  22918050.jpg  26074181

28813854  30807954

  1. A Monster Calls – Patrick Ness – ★★★★★
  2. The Selection – Kiera Cass – ★★★★★
  3. The Elite – Kiera Cass – ★★★★☆
  4. The One –  Kiera Cass – ★★★★★
  5. The Heir – Kiera Cass – ★★★½☆☆
  6. The Crown – Kiera Cass – ★★★★☆
  7. Me Before You – Jojo Moyes – ★★★★★
  8. Melody’s key – Dallas Coryell – ★★★★½

So, this month I read all the books in the The Selection series. And I really loved them!! The first book is for sure my favorite with The One being close by. I totally can see why people did’t enjoy The Heir and The Crown so much but I still had a great time reading them!

I read A Monster Calls mainly because the movie is coming out, but I couldn’t be happier with that decision!! It was a powerful book and I wasn’t expecting it at all!! It was beautifully sad and I would recommend it for sure!!

Me Before You was as amazing as I was expecting! I am so happy I finally read this book!! It’s being on my TBR for quite a while!!

Also I just ended Melody’s Key and I loved it! It has that old feeling to it and a cute love story! And it was nice to have had a new adult book to my list since I tend to read more YA!

I think my favorite book for the month is Me Before You with  A Monster Calls being incredibly close! It’s actually difficult to choose one of them but I will go with that…

What was your favorite book for this month??

For my October TBR, I couldn’t be more lost… I always have an idea of what I will read… At least one book but this month I didn’t really know, but I think I will go for a bit of Halloween Books – and I will post a TAG with some ideas for halloween books in early October – because I feel like my mood changes with the seasons and I always want a different type of book in some season. October/November is perfect for spooky ones – or kinda supernatural stuff… what do you guys think?

I will probably pick up:

I’m reading this month Fortunately the Milk since it came in the same box set as Coraline and The Graveyard Book and Twilight because I wanna read the reimagined version of it! And probably I will end up reading through the series, let’s see! 😛 If not I will read Six of Crows still this month! I’m so excited!!

 

Any idea of what you may read this month? Also any suggestion for a fall/winter mood type of book? >.<

When a daring rescue of Cress goes awry, the group is splintered. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a higher price than she’d ever expected. Meanwhile, Queen Levana will let nothing prevent her marriage to Emperor Kai, especially the cyborg mechanic.

Four by Veronica Roth

Series: Divergent #0.1 – 0.4

Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers

Genres: Fiction, Dystopian, Science Fiction, Short Stories

Pages: 208

Format: Paperback

Buy: Book Depository | Amazon

Two years before Beatrice Prior made her choice, the sixteen-year-old son of Abnegation’s faction leader did the same. Tobias’s transfer to Dauntless is a chance to begin again. Here, he will not be called the name his parents gave him. Here, he will not let fear turn him into a cowering child.

Newly christened “Four,” he discovers during initiation that he will succeed in Dauntless. Initiation is only the beginning, though; Four must claim his place in the Dauntless hierarchy. His decisions will affect future initiates as well as uncover secrets that could threaten his own future—and the future of the entire faction system.

Two years later, Four is poised to take action, but the course is still unclear. The first new initiate who jumps into the net might change all that. With her, the way to righting their world might become clear. With her, it might become possible to be Tobias once again.

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth comes a companion volume to the worldwide bestselling DIVERGENT series, told from the per-spective of the immensely popular character Tobias. The four pieces included here—THE TRANSFER, THE INITIATE, THE SON, and THE TRAITOR—plus three additional exclusive scenes, give readers an electrifying glimpse into the history and heart of Tobias, and set the stage for the epic saga of the DIVERGENT trilogy.

Four: A Divergent Story Collection contains all of the following short stories:
1. The Transfer: A Divergent Story
2. The Initiate: A Divergent Story
3. The Son: A Divergent Story
4. The Traitor: A Divergent Story

This book was amazing! There is not much to say more than that 😛 … Tobias has been the character I love the most, even comparing to Tris. And to know more about him was so much needed!! LOL

You get to know Four, 2 years before he even meets Tris. So you get to see a different side of him. You get to see the scared boy from Abnegation struggling to break free from his faction and abusive father, and you see him grow into the man he is by the time Divergent begins.

Four is that strong character we all saw in Divergent and so on but he is so much more than that! He passed through so much… he battled so hard to be better, to be different, to erase his ghosts…

I love him even more after this book!
