October 2013 Wrap-Up

Hey everybody! Welcome to my wrap-up for October! Here are the books I read this month:

Catching Fire (The Hunger Games, #2)  Zom-B Baby (Zom-B, #5)  Fearsome Dreamer (Fearsome Dreamer, #1)

1. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (reread)
2. Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins (reread)
3. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins (reread)
4. She Is Not Invisible by Marcus Sedgwick
5. Zom-B Angels by Darren Shan (reread)
6. Zom-B Baby by Darren Shan
7. Fearsome Dreamer by Laure Eve
8. The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox by Maggie O'Farrell (for school)

I started off this month with a reread of The Hunger Games series, as I thought it would be a good idea to reread Catching Fire at least before seeing the film which comes out in THREE WEEKS!! Very exciting indeed. Of course, they were great, just as they were last time I read them :) Then, on 17th October it was my birthday and I received She Is Not Invisible from my parents, and so I read that as quickly as I could and really, really enjoyed it. Then I reread Zom-B Angels so that I could review it before reading Zom-B Baby, and I thoroughly enjoyed them both, and I definitely recommend that series if you haven't already read them! Fearsome Dreamer started slowly but in the end was a really great read and a solid debut.

My favourite of this month was...

SHE IS NOT INVISIBLE by Marcus Sedgwick

Comments

  1. I've been wanting to re-read the The Hunger Games series for over a year now. Doubt it'll work before the second movie comes out. Hope you enjoy Allegiant and Panic. Read Allegiant the day it came out and am currently reading (and enjoying) Panic:)

  2. I might have to reread Catching Fire, too, and I have to read She is Not Invisible soon! It sounds so good. I hope you like Antigoddess, and let me know what you think of Allegiant! :)

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

Series: Standalone
Pages: 213
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Date of Publication: 30th August 2012 (reprint)

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…
