Hello, dearies! We have here another powerful edition of the mini reviews post =D This time, however, the macro theme will be Young Adult books that I have read recently =)
Just remembering that the mini reviews deal is a combination of inspirations from Cait, of The Paper Fury, and from Lindsey, of @thepagemistress, and that I do those with books that were good, but weren’t unforgettable =)
In this post, you’ll find mini reviews for:
Elizabeth Rudnick – A Frozen Heart
Emily Rodda – The Key to Rondo (Rondo #1)
G. K. DeRosa – Wilder Destiny (The Guardian #2)
John Connolly – The Book of Lost Things
Kiera Cass – The Siren
Laini Taylor – Daughter of Smoke and Bone (Daughter of Smoke and Bone #1)
Shannon Hale – The Unfairest of Them All (Ever After High: Storybook of Legends #2)
Good day to you! It is I, the urban legend of book bloggers back once again from the hiatus sea. I’ve realized I never got to do a wrap up for September and we are totally still in schedule for an October one, so why not do both in the same post, right? =D It will save time for everyone, yay!
*titles with links are already reviewed, isn’t this a miracle?!! =O*
So, September was a crazy reading month for me. I do promise I kept my life on its regular tracks and that I didn’t skip work to read as I say that I’ve read 26 books that month.
The Lost Hero, by Rick Riordan (The Heroes of Olympus #1) – read from Sept. 21th to 26th | 5 stars
Kindred Spirits, by Rainbow Rowell – read on Sept. 26th | 5 stars
Unfortunately, I can’t remember if I bought any books that particular month or if I bought something in October, so no Book Hauls =( Sorry, my memory sucks! I used to document each book bought on a word doc, but oh well. I think I’ll go back to it on December, haha!
In October, I didn’t manage to read so many books as in September because of my Game of Thrones Challenge, but I read all the mangas I hadn’t in the previous month in between the bloody pages of GOT, oops! So I’ve read only 6 books… But also 26 volumes of manga, haha!
I have been asked where in all seven hells I have managed to squeeze in so many mangas in the middle of a Game of Thrones challenge, but I’m not really allowed to talk about my time turning abilities? Hahaha! No, seriously, I don’t have a good explanation, sorry =/
A Game of Thrones, by George R.R. Martin (A Song of Ice and Fire #1) – read from Sept. 27th to Oct. 4th | 4 stars
A Clash of Kings, by George R.R. Martin (A Song of Ice and Fire #2) – read from Oct. 4th to 10th | 4 stars
A Storm of Swords, by George R.R. Martin (A Song of Ice and Fire #3) – read from Oct. 10th to 17th | 4 stars
A Feast for Crows, by George R.R. Martin (A Song of Ice and Fire #4) – read from Oct. 18th to 24th | 2 stars
A Dance with Dragons, by George R.R. Martin (A Song of Ice and Fire #5) – read from Oct. 24th to 27th | 5 stars
After I knock these down, I’ll just be a rebel and fish all the lovely books I’ve received this year from authors and publishers that remain unread for a reason or another and start a slow and steady process of reading and reviewing them all. #ambitious
BONUS: The next reviews you can expect to see here are for the Never Veil series =D
That’s it, guys! Once again, thanks so much for sticking around until the end of the post, I know I have been writing too much, oops! Love you all!
