September Wrap-Up!

Another month, another wrap-up! 
I can't believe how quickly these months are going!! Blink and you'll miss them, before you know it it'll be Christmas (sorry if you're one of those people who hates talking about Christmas so early, but I'm one of those losers people who'd happily talk about it in June...)
Time for my not-so-impressive wrap-up from September, I'm not entirely proud of myself but I just hit a slump and my brain refused to let me read anymore for the past couple of weeks.

Into The Still Blue by Veronica Rossi
Synopsis - Outside the dome of Reverie, Aria and Perry are struggling to keep their people from tearing each other apart. Their situation is desperate, and with the Aether storms worsening time is running out for them to rescue Cinder from Hess and Sable.
Cinder is both the key to unlock the Still Blue and their only hope for survival, so Aria and Perry assemble an unlikely team to attempt a daring rescue mission. They know that in a dying world, the bond of friendship is what matters most.
I read this book...I finished the series....And I absolutely adored every second of it all! 
For me it was the perfect ending, I'm not going to give anything away but I thought it was a lovely ending, sad in parts but all in all I felt like Ms Rossi took care of my favourite trilogy, and some of my favourite characters, very well :)
So long for now Peregrine, you will always be in my heart my number one book boyfriend <3

To All The Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han
Synopsis - Lara Jean keeps her love letters in a hatbox her mother gave her. One for every boy she's ever loved. When she writes, she can pour out her heart and soul and say all the things she would never say in real life, because her letters are for her eyes only.Until the day her secret letters are mailed, and suddenly Lara Jean's love life goes from imaginary to out of control.
Now I liked this book...sort of...I felt the characters were a bit whiny, and too juvenile for their age, and our protagonist Lara Jean got on my wick a lot of the time with her moaning and pining, but saying that I thought the male characters were written well and all in all it was a well written little book that I enjoyed, but it's nothing trailblazing, and nowhere near as good as I thought it would be from other bloggers and Youtubers raves about it! I gave it 3.5 stars, as I felt three would be too stingy but four was far too generous.

Before I Go To Sleep by S.J. Watson
Synopsis - Memories define us.
So what if you lost yours every time you went to sleep? Your name, your identity, your past, even the people you love - all forgotten overnight. And the one person you trust may only be telling you half the story.
Welcome to Christine's life.
I was told to read this by my friend Frances because she really enjoyed it, more than Gone Girl which I was reading at the time, so I was excited to read this!
I must admit, I didn't enjoy it as much as Gone Girl, I felt Before I Go To Sleep gets too bogged down in detail and description.
It was a very intriguing story though, I've lent it to my work mate at the moment (which is why it's not pictured above) because I know she'll really enjoy it as she enjoyed Gone Girl too, and I would say it's a similar ''twisty'' style thriller so if you enjoyed Gone Girl you would enjoy this, but the difference between them for me is that I didn't guess the twist with Gone Girl, but unfortunately I did with Before I Go To Sleep which always puts a dampener on a story for me!
I gave this book 3.5.

There we go! Only the three for me this month, I would say I hope to read more next month but I always say that, and to be honest I just read as and when I want to because reading is a hobby and I'd hate to force myself to read, that might make me get bored of it! 
Heaven forbid!
TTFN! x
