How in the heck is it September already?! It’s completely insane that Summer is nearly over, but as it’s that time of the month let’s have a look at what I’ve been reading in August.
READ THE LUNAR CHRONICLES!! If you love fairy tales and love fantasy then do it, part of me is sad that I didn’t read Cinder when it was first released, but I don’t know how I would have survived waiting a year between each book. This has definitely been a series worth waiting for. But the most important question of all, do I read the latest Harry Potter?? I really have no clue where I stand, I think I’m put off with the idea that it’s a script. I feel like so much magical detail will be missing. If you’ve read it let me know your thoughts, I kind of feel like I should give it a read.
My latest buys this month are, The Beast Within by Serena Valentino and A Whole New World by Liz Braswell. After reading Fairest of All by Valentino I was delighted to hear she had another two books on the way, the third being based on Ursula the sea witch. I loved Fairest, and what she did with the character and background of The Evil Queen. So I’m really looking forward to sinking my teeth into this one. The second book I bought I discovered when I found The Beast Within. There are three books all based on the idea of what if, in this case; what if Aladdin never found the lamp? I really love the idea of this as it’s different to all the fairy tale based books I’ve been reading.
That’s it for August, this month I’ll be starting Castle in the Air by Diana Wynee Jones, the sequel to Howl’s Moving Castle as my main read at home. See you in the next post.
