Monthly Wrap-Up: September ’16

Reading-wise, September was not one of my best months. Between the end of the holidays, preparations to leave the country, an odd reluctance to read, and having to leave an 80% read book behind, my TBR underwent little decrease. Thankfully, the books I did finish were lovely in their own way and left me pumped for all the books to come. Besides, the colder weather always makes one want to read a little bit more, doesn’t it?

Angel of Storms (Millennium’s Rule, #2)Angel of Storms (Millenium’s Rule #2), by Trudi Canavan (4.5/5)

“Some of the worst decisions have been made for the noblest reasons.”
I am so glad to have returned to this series. The world-building and character development are top-notch. What’s more, it never fails to make you think. About loyalty. About sacrifices. About truth.

The Girl on the TrainThe Girl On The Train
, by Paula Hawkins (3.5/5)

“There’s nothing so painful, so corrosive, as suspicion.”
Ah, the frustration of an answer dancing in front of you and not seeing it! Hard as it was to get into it, the journey was twistedly unexpected and culminated in the most satisfying ending.

Hogwarts: An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide (Pottermore Presents, #3)Hogwarts: An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide (Pottermore Presents #3) , by J.K.Rowling (3.5/5)
“Hogwarts is teeming with secrets.”
Although I don’t understand the point of these books (most of the info is on Pottermore), it never failed to make me smile. Now for that complete encyclopedia to come out!

The Sandman, Vol. 8: Worlds' End

World’s End (Sandman #8), by Neil Gaiman (4/5)

“Is there any person in the world who does not dream? Who does not contain within them worlds unimagined?”
The concept of a tavern at the end of all worlds is intriguing. It feels like a set-up for something grander, something I’m dying to discover.
