Ah September, you were more then good to me. This month was pretty amazing, I read some amazing releases I’ve been waiting on for a year and bought some great books + seen my fellow book lovers in real life again, oh and did I mention I had a good reading month? Yeah there was that to.
The books I read and loved
spoiler it was all of them:
I re-read the Throne of Glass series and then devoured Empire of Storms by Sarah J Maas. I adore this series, I’ve loved Celaena since she was a smartass, cake loving, idiot with to many love choices and I continue to love her through out this series.
Hopeless by Colleen Hoover
It’s say to say that I will love every and any book Colleen Hoover writes and hopeless was no different. Hopeless was my first CoHo book that featured a teenager as the MC and it tugged at my heartstrings.
The female friendship in this book is amazing and the plot is a lot more complicated then I expected. 5/5 stars
Losing Hope by Colleen Hoover
Losing Hope is a companion book from Dean Holder’s point of view instead of Sky’s. I enjoyed seeing everything from his perspectives and gaining more of a backstory to his character but there was none of the suspense that comes with CoHo’s books because I already new what was happening. SO while I liked it, it wasn’t 5 stars for me. 3/5 stars
Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover
Is it just me, or does everyone love to binge read CoHo? It’s like I start one book and don’t want to read anything else but more from her. Maybe Someday features a mail love interest who is deaf, and our MC who writes music with him. This book also comes with a sound track which I loved. I have reading lyrics in books because I can never put a tune to them. The soundtrack mixed with this fantastic series really made the reading experience wonderful. 4/5 stars
The Vampire Academy series! I KNOW, why oh why didn’t I read this earlier? This series is so fantastic, the character growth, those nerve racking moments, the drama, the heart stopping moments, the friendships, the romances, the struggles. Gosh I could go on all day about this series and I WILL, when I finally post my reviews. For now all I can say is, if your like last months me and putting off reading the series even though everyone is yelling at you to, just READ IT! If you don’t like it feel free to blame me xD
The Just City by Jo Walton
This book is all types of weird, with Robots and adults from all different times and eras in the world put together in one city to train 10 year olds to be philosophers and their “best” selves.
I did my very first buddy read with Kirstie over at Upside Down Books and we started a book club so we can do it every month!
The Dragon’s Hoard Book Club is for subscribers of The Dragons Hoard box and anyone that loves Sci-fi, Fantasy, and under rated reads.
