Book Unhaul! (#2)

Hey guys! I’m bringing you another unhaul post as I’ve recently been organising my bookcase into read books and unread books. It should hopefully help me keep track of my TBR and whilst I was sorting through my books I came across quite a few I wasn’t so keen about keeping. Some I either started but couldn’t finish and others I finished but didn’t like them so have decided to donate them to a charity shop! Hopefully you won’t be offended by my choices!

Rebel of the Sands1) Rebel of the Sands by Alywn Hamilton

So Rebel of the Sands was a book I decided to buy because it was pretty popular and I was seeing it all over social media. I read it last year and it was definitely not for me. I couldn’t connect with any of the characters, I found the story confusing to follow and, most importantly, I noticed a lot of errors and mistakes. To me, personally, it felt like I was reading a first draft of a book and not a finished copy. I think it definitely could have done with some more work and it has put me off checking out any of her future books. I decided not to continue the series and I didn’t see the point of keeping a book I didn’t enjoy. So this is going to the charity shop!

Dea Donahue has been able to travel through people’s dreams since she was six years old. Her mother taught her the three rules of walking: Never interfere. Never be seen. Never walk the same person’s dream more than once. Dea has never questioned her mother, not about the rules, not about the clocks or the mirrors, not about moving from place to place to be one step ahead of the unseen monsters that Dean’s mother is certain are right behind them.

Then a mysterious new boy, Connor, comes to town and Dea finally starts to feel normal. As Connor breaks down the walls that she’s had up for so long, he gets closer to learning her secret. For the first time she wonders if that’s so bad. But when Dea beaks the rules, the boundary between worlds begins to deteriorate. How can she know that’s real and what’s not?

September Wrap Up!

September has been an absolutely terrible reading month for me. I have read three books this month. Three books. I am so disappointed! It’s been a really busy month and I’ve just not had a lot of time to read. Here is what I did manage to read:

demon-hunters1) Demon Hunters: Trinity by Olivia Chase

I received this on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. It was quite good but I just felt that I was a little too old for it and it was suited more for younger readers. There were some parts that annoyed me and didn’t really make sense. I’m not sure if I will read the next book it really depends on the synopsis. It’s about called Diana who feels that she has never really had a normal life. Her dad is an occult hunter and published author so she finds herself uprooted by investigations and this time she is moving to Edinburgh. It’s not long before her recurring nightmares start coming true and her destiny changes forever. After her dad goes missing, she becomes part of a Trinity of Demon Hunters. Along with her two new friends, she needs to face down death, rescue her dad and save their city. There’s only one question left to answer: how do you kill a dead man? You can read my full review here.

September TBR!

This is the most exciting month EVER because all the book releases happen this month, yesyesyes! I can’t be the only person completely freaking out about all these new books! I have been waiting so long for some of them. There are some that come out near the end of September so they will probably be on my October TBR. Anyway, here is a list of books that I plan on reading this month:

A-Torch-Against-The-Night-Tahir1) A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir

This beautiful book comes out in the UK 8th September! I’m crying at people who’ve already read it because it was released in the US yesterday, I think. I can’t wait to read it and review it! An Ember in the Ashes was one of the best books I’ve read this year and I am ridiculously excited to see if A Torch Against the Night is the same or better!

I am halfway through Demon Hunters: Trinity by Olivia Chase. It’s another ARC I found on NetGalley and so far I’m really enjoying it! It was recommended for fans of Cassandra Clare and that made me super curious to read it because I love Cassie’s books! This book is really interesting and I love all of the characters. I’m enjoying it a lot more than I thought I would! I have only read a little of Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi as I’m focusing more on finishing the first book. But this is also another book I’m thoroughly enjoying!

I may have gotten a little carried away this month with my book buying! I didn’t mean to buy this many when my TBR pile is already so big but they’re so pretty and look so interesting! Take a look!

This cover is so pretty I love it so much. Still haven’t got around to reading Shatter Me yet but I’m sure I will love it!
