Currently Reading (09/10)

Sorry I haven’t posted anything in a while!! Life has been so hectic since I was on vacation and had to move in to my residence the day I came back that I haven’t had a whole time to blog let alone complete a single book apparently?? After having read 20+ books in August I’m lowkey crying over the fact that it’s already the 10th of September and I haven’t read anything. But I’m actually in the middle of four books right now so I decided to share my thoughts on them so far!

September TBR

Yikes okay I have no idea how many books I’m going to manage to get to this month. School isn’t going to be ridiculously intense just yet but I kind of very last minute decided to move out for this year again so I’m just a very stressed human trying to find an apartment.

But there are so many books that I’ve bought and taken out from the library that I am absolutely dying to get to so I decided to make a TBR anyway.

This is actually my first official monthly TBR? I’m such a mood reader that I can’t make one for myself but what I think will work for me is if I set 5 books that I want to read this month and then for the rest I can read whatever I feel like. But these 5 books will obviously be ones that I’m very excited for.

August Wrap Up

This is the last month I had before school starts and thanks the gods that I managed to go out with such a bang. I’ve read a total of 21 books this month, coming to a total of 6959 pages. I’ve found some absolutely amazing books, including a series that I am now completely hooked on.

I’m only hoping that I’m going to have at least some time to read this upcoming school year because I’m fully over my slump and have planned a pretty solid TBR that I can’t let myself give up on.

This month as a whole has been… okay for me. I spent essentially the whole month highkey stressed about life so I just spent a lot of time reading to calm myself down. I’m excited for school to start though, that’s literally the only time I actually have purpose.

Brace yourself for a very long list of books!!

Down Among the Sticks and Bones (Wayward Children #2) by Seanan McGuire

31450908SYNOPSIS

Twin sisters Jack and Jill were seventeen when they found their way home and were packed off to Eleanor West’s Home for Wayward Children.

This is the story of what happened first…

Jacqueline was her mother’s perfect daughter—polite and quiet, always dressed as a princess. If her mother was sometimes a little strict, it’s because crafting the perfect daughter takes discipline. Jillian was her father’s perfect daughter—adventurous, thrill-seeking, and a bit of a tom-boy. He really would have preferred a son, but you work with what you’ve got.

They were five when they learned that grown-ups can’t be trusted.

They were twelve when they walked down the impossible staircase and discovered that the pretense of love can never be enough to prepare you a life filled with magic in a land filled with mad scientists and death and choices.

RATING: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Genre:
 YA, fantasy

Throwback Thursday – Old Favourites I Need to Reread

So as any avid goodreads user, I was going through all the books that I’ve rated in my goodreads lifetime and stumbled across quite a few books that I read 5-6 years ago and rated surprisingly high? Now I don’t know if that’s because that was in my earlier YA reading journey so I thought they were better, if I was easier to please, or these were actually genuinely really good books.

I’m always up to reread books, so I decided to compile a list of books that used to be my favourites back in early high school years (also it just bothers me that I have so many high ratings because of that how am I supposed to compile favourites lists if I have these books that I remember nothing about rated 4-5 stars)
