September 2012 Round-Up

I cannot believe it is October tomorrow! This year has gone so fast, as has this month, and it's time for another monthly round-up, yay! Haha, so if you don't know what these are yet, then basically it's just me, rounding up what I've read and telling you want my favourite was, what I didn't like (if there were any) etc etc. So, here's what I read!

Zom-B (Zom-B, #1)  Unspoken (The Lynburn Legacy, #1)  Alice in Zombieland (White Rabbit Chronicles, #1)

1. Rage Within by Jeyn Roberts
2. Zom-B by Darren Shan
3. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
4. Hold Still by Nina LaCour
5. Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan
6. What's Left of Me by Kat Zhang
7. Boys Don't Cry by Malorie Blackman
8. Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter
9. Poltergeeks by Sean Cummings (half)

So, I'm still reading Poltergeeks while I'm writing this, but I want to hopefully finish it today, and if I do it will go into my September books so I've added it anyway... My favourite of the month is listed below, but some of my other favourites were Alice in Zombieland, and Unspoken. I had to read Pride and Prejudice for school as we are studying it in English, and while it took me a while to get used to the writing style, I really enjoyed it towards the end, when everything finally comes together for Elizabeth and Mr Darcy... I didn't read any bad books this month (yay!) although I had some trouble with Rage Within as I just don't think I was quite in the right mood for it. Never mind, it was a still a good read on the whole so all was okay in the end. 

Number of pages read this month: 2705
Average number of pages per book: 301

My favourite book of September was:

WHAT'S LEFT OF ME by Kat Zhang

What's Left of Me (The Hybrid Chronicles, #1)

My review can be read here.

These are the books I'm most looking forward to reading in October: 

The Diviners  Breathe (Breathe, #1)  Time Between Us

And lastly, here are some awesome new releases, coming in October! 

Poltergeeks (Poltergeeks, #1)  The Assassin's Curse (The Assassin's Curse, #1)  Breathe (Breathe, #1)

  Finale (Hush, Hush, #4)  Eve and Adam  Alice in Zombieland (White Rabbit Chronicles, #1)

Book Review: The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

Title: The Perks of Being a Wallflower  Author: Stephen Chbosky
Series: Standalone
Pages: 213
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Date of Publication: 30th August 2012 (reprint)
Source: Publisher*
Synopsis from Goodreads:
The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a story about what it’s like to travel that strange course through the uncharted territory of high school. the world of first dates, family dramas, and new friends. of sex, drugs, and the rocky horror picture show. of those wild and poignant roller-coaster days known as growing up.
My Thoughts:
So many people have been telling me to read Perks for about a year now, and with the movie coming up soon, I thought it was finally time. I mean, it looked quite good, and you have to read the book before the film, right?! Anyway, I decided I would read it on holiday when I had nothing else to do so I could read it all at once, and as it's really not very long this was pretty easy. While it didn't quite live up to my (probably too high) expectations…

Book Review: Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu

Title: Moxie Author: Jennifer Mathieu
Series: n/a
Pages: 340
Publisher: Hodder Children's Books
Date of Publication: 21st September 2017
Source: borrowed from Reading to Recover
Synopsis from Goodreads:
It's time to fight like a girl!

Vivian Carter is fed up. Fed up with her high school teachers who think the football team can do no wrong. Fed up with sexist dress codes, hallway harassment and gross comments from guys during class. But most of all, Viv Carter is fed up with always following the rules.

Viv's mum was a tough-as-nails, punk rock Riot Grrrl in the '90s, and now Viv takes a page from her mother's past and creates Moxie, a feminist zine that she distributes anonymously to her classmates. She's just blowing off steam, but other girls respond and spread the Moxie message. As Viv forges friendships with other young women across the divides of cliques and popularity rankings, she realises that what she has started is nothing short of a girl revolution.
