Hello there my lovelies,
How are you all doing? Enjoying the summer I hope.
Unfortunately, all the good things have to come to an end and summer is going to leave us pretty soon. <insert very sad face, but hopeful for the upcoming Autumn>
SEPTEMBER IS HERE.
This is a month of many changes for some many of us. We are either going back to school, college or university. We are starting the world of adulthood. Getting rid of the children for another school year, so we can get back to reading or just enjoying the last rays of sunshine before the Autumn knocks on our door.
And since there is a new month at our door, it brings a new to-be-read list with it. So let me share with you what I am reading this last warm month.
Here is my SEPTEMBER TBR LIST.
SEPTEMBER READING CHALLENGE
QUEEN OF SHADOWS by Sarah J. Maas
No Masters. No Limits. No Regrets.
Celeana Sardothien is cloacked in her assassin's hood once more. She is back in Rifthold, but this time she is no one's slave. She must delve into her most painful memories and fight for her survival, whilst resisting a smouldering passion that might very well consume her heart. And she will face her former master, the King Of Assassins, again - to wreak revenge for a decade of pain...
FORBIDDEN by Tabitha Suzuma
'You've always been my best friend, my soul mate, and now I've fallen in love with you too. Why is that such a crime?'
She is pretty and talented - sweet sixteen and never been kissed. He is seventeen, gorgeous and on the brink of a bright future. And now they have fallen in love. But... They are brother and sister.
IT FELT LIKE A KISS by Sarra Manning
Ellie Cohen is living her dream. A great job at an exclusive Mayfair art gallery, loyal mates, loving family, and really, really good hair. Well, there's the famous rock-star father who refuses to acknowledge her and a succession of 'challenging' boyfriends, but nobody's perfect.
But when a vengeful ex sells Ellie out to the press, she suddenly finds herself fighting to keep her job, her reputation and her sanity. Then David Gold - handsome, charming but ruthlessly ambitious - is sent in to manage the media crisis... and Ellie.
David thinks she's a gold-digger and Ellie thinks he's a shark in a Savile Row suit, so it's just as well that falling in love is the last thing on their minds...
ME BEFORE YOU by Jojo Moyes
Lou Clark knows lots of things. She knows how many footsteps there are between the bus stop and home. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Patrick. What Lou doesn't know is she's about to lose her job or that knowing what's coming is what keeps her sane.
Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live. He knows everything feels very small and rather joyless now, and he knows exactly how he's going to put a stop to that.
What Will doesn't know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of colour. And neither of them knows they're going to change the other for all time.
MAYBE SOMEDAY by Colleen Hoover
At twenty-two years old, Sydney is enjoying a great life: She's in college, working a steady job, in love with her wonderful boyfriend, Hunter, and rooming with her best friend, Tori. But everything changes when she discovers that Hunter is cheating on her - and she's forced to decide what her next move should be.
Soon Sydney finds herself captivated by her mysterious and attractive neighbour, Ridge. She can't take her eyes off him or stop listening to the passionate way he plays his guitar every evening out on his balcony. And there's something about Sydney that Ridge can't ignore, either. They soon find themselves needing each other in more ways than one.
MY LIFE NEXT DOOR by Huntley Fitzpatrick
On one summer night, everything changed.
Life in Samatha Reed's home is neat and clean and orderly - precisely planned by her local politician mother. Next door, at the Garretts', things are loud, messy, and irresistible. And when gorgeous Jase Garrett climbs the trellis outside her bedroom and enters her life, she finds herself falling passionately in love with him and everything he brings with him. The only hitch is, she's got to hide it from her mother. Then something unthinkable happens, and Samatha is suddenly faced with an impossible decision. Which perfect family will save her? Or is it time she saved herself?
ME AND EARL AND THE DYING GIRL by Jesse Andrews
My name is Greg Gaines. I am seventeen. I am the one who wrote this book. My physical appearance is unsatisfactory, and there is probably a fungus eating my brain. I'm not even sure I'm a human.
Earl Jackson is the only person who is even sort of my friend. We make mediocre films together. Werner Herzog is our biggest influence. Earl is generally filled with violent rage.
During my senior year, my mom forced me to become friends with a girl who had cancer. This brought about the destruction of my entire life.
SOMETHING REAL by Heather Demetrios
There's nothing real about reality TV.
Seventeen-year-old Bonnie Baker has grown up on TV - she and her twelve siblings are the stars of the one-time hit reality show Baker's Dozen. Since the show's cancellation and the scandal surrounding it, Bonnie has tried to life a normal life, under the radar and out of the spotlight. But it's all about to fall apart... because Baker's Dozen is going back on the air. Neither her mother nor the show's producers will let Bonnie quit, and soon the life she has so carefully built for herself, with real friends (and maybe even a real boyfriend), is in danger of being destroyed by the show. Bonnie needs to do something drastic if her life is going to be her own - even if it means being more exposed than ever before.
THE REMNANT CHRONICLES: THE HEART OF BETRAYAL by Mary E. Pearson
Held captive in the barbarian kingdom of Venda, Lia and Rafe have little chance of escape. Desperate to save Lia's life, her erstwhile assassin, Kaden, has told the Vendan Komizar that she has the gift, and the Komizar's interest in Lia is greater than anyone could have foreseen.
Meanwhile, nothing is straightforward: There's Rafe, who lied to Lia but has sacrificed his freedom to protect her; Kaden, who meant to assassinate her but has now saved her life; and the Vendans, whom Lia always believed to be savages. Now that she lives among them, however, she realises that may be far from the truth. Wrestling with her upbringing, her gift, and her sense of self, Lia must make powerful choices that will affect her country... and her own destiny.
9 books. 9 different stories. 9 brand new adventures. I can foresee a great month of literature.
But I want to know what is on your TBR list this month. Are you reading any of the books I am reading? Or are you discovering different adventures? Do let me know in comments below. I am always looking for an inspiration.
Have a good September :)
