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)

Good morning! I have finally finished my degree (woohoo!) and so I (should) have all the time in the world for reading and blogging now! Here's a review of the final book in a series that I always love to read when I'm revising...

Synopsis from Goodreads:Elektra James is back and her life is more hilariously chaotic than ever!

Elektra is hoping for BIG things this year... She's finished her first feature film (even if her character was unexpectedly killed off half-way through filming), hosted the party of the year (well, before her mum arrived and threw everyone out - how embarrassing!) and managed to become Archie Mortimer's Actual Real Life girlfriend (for now anyway...), so things are most definitely moving in the right direction. But with social media…

SERIES REVIEW: The Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Hello! Welcome to my appreciation post for one of my favourite series - The Illuminae Files!


I'm going to try and keep it non-spoilery but be cautious if you've only read Illuminae and/or Gemina
THE FACTS: Series title: The Illuminae Files
Series authors: Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Publisher: Rock the Boat
Series completion date: 13th March, 2018

This morning, Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do.

This afternoon, her planet was invaded.

The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than an ice-covered speck at the edge of the universe. Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it. With enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra—who are barely even talking to each other—are forced to fight their way onto one of the evacuating fleet, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit.

But their problems are just getting started. A deadly plague has broken out and is mutating, with terrifying results…
