September Reads

Happy Tuesday Friends! I hope your week got off to a great start and you have exciting things planned for this week.  

For 2016, I have decided that it is important for me to take the time to read books... I know, I know, I say this every year, but this year I promise will be different! 

The goal is to each month, read a random assortment of books and share a few thoughts about the book (but not too much as I don't want to spoil the fun for anyone).  I love reading and I love sharing books with you guys.

Plus, this is a great opportunity for you all to share some of your awesome reads with me!

And you can keep track all year long by clicking 2016 Books at the top of my blog.  I will keep a running list of books right there for you.

Okay, time for the books I've read // currently reading in September!

With the movie coming out this Friday, I knew I needed to read the book! Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is a book that dabbles in the fantastical, adventurous, the past and the present.  I was immediately drawn to the story and trying to figure out the truth behind his grandfather's stories, because there is no way they were true, is there? You will have to find out for yourself! I also cannot wait to start reading the second book!!

I tried starting reading The Light Between Oceans back in March and just could not get into the book.  This time around, I decided to listen to the book on tape and it was a little better than trying to just read the book.  The story is very complicated and throughout the book, I just generally felt sorry for both of the main characters.  If you have seen the movie, but have not read the book, I would suggest reading the book first as there are a few discrepancies between the movie and the book.

I just started this book on Sunday, so I am not too far into to the book.  The Rule of Thoughts is the sequel to The Eye of Minds and so far I am enjoying the second book as much as I am the first.  I am curious how Dashner is going to tie in the previous story to this one and I am excited to see how he develops the characters this time around as they are meeting in person for the first time ever.  If you like sci-fi or dystopian stories, I would check this one out for sure.

Well that is all for my books for September!
