This month has come to an end and I am ready for the spooky season. I’ve already prepared the treats I plan to make for my annual bonfire (which I usually spend alone with my books) and I can’t wait to look at all of the cute animal costumes the nearby pet stores have to offer.
I am satisfied with how much I read this month. Most of them were books that I chose to reread, but it was great reliving those cute novels after so many years had passed. I also had my first pumpkin spice latte of the year, which was a great experience after a stressful driving lesson.
Anyways, let’s get into the wrap-up!
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
I first read this when I was 13 when I had picked it up from an indie bookshop located in Washington Island, where I was on vacation. Rereading this was like reliving the memories of sitting on a very pink unfamiliar bed while I waited for my parents to get rid of the bat that somehow ended up inside the living room of the house we rented.
This novel was just as good the second time around, and I look forward to potentially rereading it yet again a few years in the future.
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
I loved everything about this novel. It was like I was back in high school, which was kind of nice considering my high school experience wasn’t all that bad. When I saw this at Barnes and Noble, I had to get it. There was no way I would pass up a chance to own this wonderful novel.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
This was yet another reread that I loved. It’s a cute novel that incorporates some interesting old photos that bring the story to life. While it didn’t do anything to add to the creepy factor, I think it helped me visualize the characters a bit better.
Hollow City by Ransom Riggs
I couldn’t just read the first novel without reading the others. In my opinion, this one was definitely better than the first. The ending to this one was a much better cliffhanger and was probably the reason why I was so excited for the third one to come out. I’m currently working on finishing the third to complete the trilogy so you will see that one in my October wrap-up.
Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell
I love this novel so much! I’ve been meaning to read this one for years, and I finally got around to reading it this September. It had me on the edge of my seat, desperately hoping for everything to work out for Eleanor. When I read a romance novel, I always wish for the happy ending, but I also love it when the ending isn’t always “they lived happily ever after”. It makes it so much more likable to me because it’s so much more realistic. I plan on doing a review for this novel within the next week.
