So I first came across Paul Tremblay‘s work last year when I read A Head Full of Ghosts which was an amazing book. I was offered the chance to read this book so I jumped at the chance.

I went into this blind and I must say it was an intriguing read that I couldn‘t put down, especially in the second half.

So my August Wrap up is on my blog. I managed 7 books this month. Hoping to read slight more thus month. I can't believe it's September already, but I'm glad because the weather is cooling down. Woohoo.

The Hunger Games | Suzanne Collins
post image

#currentread So this is technically a re-read for me. I read this back in 2015 but never got around to finishing the trilogy. I've been having a really good reading month so I've decided to start this and possibly finish the trilogy this month.

So one of my biggest pet peeve is fake stickers on books. I love this cover and it's simplicity but the sticker ruins it.

Does anyone else despise this?

#bookhaul So the other day I went to my local charity shop to donate books and I couldn't help but browse the books they had. They had an offer where you got 2 books for 99p so I naturally had to buy the books. I got 8 books for £3.96 and the money helped charity so win win.

Have you read these books? Opinions?

Full review can be found on my blog, link in my Bio.

Well this was such a disappointing read. When I read the blurb I immediately wanted to read this book. It had such an interesting premise but unfortunately fell flat for me.
The first half was not too bad and it did make me want to find out more but I just felt like the plot went no where.

I went to a cafe I got to regularly because they have three book cases full of books and I always seem to find books when I'm there. This visit was no different. I got these five books for £5 and the money goes to charity.

The Mortal Instruments | Cassandra Clare

It was my birthday on Monday and this is somethings I bought with money I got.

I had to get the dot to dot book, it is so pretty. I got the stunning editions of The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare, I have only read the first two books but I want to finish the series by the end of the year. I got the cinematic guide of Harry Potter, which comes with four separate books for Harry, Ron, Hermione and Albus. Also got a Slytherin mug & booklight.

CoffeeCatsBooks I love that Star to Star ⭐️ Such a cool idea! 2y

I love the disney infinity figures. I don't use them on the game, I just collect them. These are the ones I have so far. I think the Jack Skellington one is my favourite. I have Alice from Alice in wonderland and also Mulan but they would fit in the picture 😂

I've still to read The Victoria Letters but I hope to get to it before the new series comes out.

So I finished The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald on Saturday and I enjoyed it more than I thought I would.

I've started this yesterday morning and it's quite good so far.

What are all you guys reading ??

Sophoclessweetheart I'm starting Warbreaker but I may change my choice before tonight 😅😅 2y
literarywisdom @TheOtherMother I saw your post. I haven't read Warbreaker 😂 do you have other books in mind? 2y
Sophoclessweetheart Hmm, not really. Possibly The Penelopiad or a Pratchett 💁🏼 Maybe ACOMAF but so far I am enjoying Warbreaker. It's a very unique and odd take on Magic and I'm quite intrigued 🙈🙈 2y

The Great Gatsby | F. Scott Fitzgerald

So I have decided to put Duskfall down again for now. I've tried really hard to get into the story but I'm not enjoying it at the moment. So I will put it down and try again on a later day.

For my next read I've picked The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I've never read it before and it is quite short so I hope I have better luck reading this.

Sophoclessweetheart 🙈😂I'm good. I'm really enjoying being here on Litsy. It is so so much more relaxed than BG ever was and people are much more friendly. The only downfall being that not many people are very active here yet. Which makes it quite slow going. But hopefully more people will start to actively use it and it will pick up. 💗💗 2y
