August Wrap-Up / September TBR

How is it September already? I feel like I must of missed some months or something, I always feel like the year flies by so fast. Anyway, onto the books, because that's what we're here for right? Books.

  • A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
  • Serenity: Those Left Behind (Serenity #1) by Joss Whedon and more
  • Warm Up by Victoria Schwab 
  • Vicious by Victoria Schwab
  • The Blob That Ate Everyone by R.L. Stine
  • Bakuman, Vol. 1: Dreams and Reality by Tsugumi Ohba
  • The Rithmatist (Rithmatist #1) by Brandon Sanderson
  • Better Days (Serenity #2) by Joss Whedon
  • Burnt Offerings (Anita Blake #7) by Laurell K. Hamilton
  • Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell
  • Blue Moon (Anita Blake #8) by  Laurell K. Hamilton
  • The Shepard's Tale (Serenity #3) by Joss and Zack Whedon
  • Obsidian Butterfly (Anita Blake #9) by Laurell K. Hamilton
Whew! So many books this much, and a couple really good ones that I'm still thinking about. I'm going to, hopefully, have my review of Vicious up the week/day that the book comes out and hopefully reviews many of them. If you haven't noticed, I can be kind of bad at this, it's hard to say enough things sometimes.


Honestly, I have no idea what books I am going to read, as I never do. So, some guesses, and I am definitely not a psychic.

  • Fray by Joss Whedon
  • Next In Death series
  • Ink by Amanda Sun (and the novella)
  • Over Sea, Under Stone by Susan Cooper
And hopefully more. I can't remember off the top of my head which In Death book I'm on, I'm on one of them, there's a ton of them. And Fray is a comic/graphic novel about a slayer very far in the future and it sounds amazing (it's Joss Whedon, how could it not be amazing?). I might read the next Anita Blake book, but I've heard after Obsidian Butterfly they get kind of, well, bad (until the newest one, I think), and I have the next three, so I might as well read them, it's just... the next one is over 600 pages. 

I also have some ARCs for books that come out September/October that I definitely should read. I'm very bad at making a list of books to read and sticking to it, though, normally I just pick up a random book and start reading.

Anyway! I hope August was a good month for everyone, if not reading wise then maybe something else wise, and now it's September! How the hell did that happen? No, really, I'm confused about this.
