I know it is a cliché 90% of us use at the beginning of a wrap-up post but HOW THE HELL IS IT THE END OF SEPTEMBER? I have recollections of the beginning of the month when I started the paperwork for university, then my birthday, and endless hours waiting for the mail guy to deliver my package, and suddenly October knocks on the door. Can I get those days back? I really need them. Plus, the weather cheated. It’s still summer here. Where is the cold??
I think everything was said in previous posts so I won’t complain again! This was my last week as a lazy girl. Next week the student takes over! I am overly excited about studying English again. On Monday if everything goes as planned, I get my library access back, which means I am going to borrow a hundred books about the Victorian era. Not entirely for pleasure, as I know nothing about the subject, but because I will be studying it for my history class. If you have recommendations — fiction, manuals, anything, hit me!
Books I read in September
The News Media: What Everyone Needs To Know, by C.W. Anderson, Leonard Downie Jr., Michael Schudson
Very interesting for anyone curious about how journalism evolved and what we can expect from the future. Lots of details, perfect to show off at dinner.
My Grandfather’s Eyes, B.A Spcier
Undertow, Elizabeth Heathcote
Review to come as soon as I can read my own notes! #oldage
The Ice Beneath Her, Camilla Grebe
Review to come (same issue as Undertow)
Weird Things Customers Say in a Bookshop, Jenny Campbell
Do people really say this kind of things in bookshops? I should not be surprised, I heard so much when I was a cashier… But really? Hilarious and mortifying!
Carry On, Rainbow Rowell
Can someone explain to me what I missed with this one?
The Fire Child, S.K Tremayne
The numerous parallels with The Ice Twins bothered me more than I thought they would. I wanted to travel again and feel the atmosphere envelop me, but this time the magic did not work. It even felt forced at times, as if The Fire Child was a copy of its big brother book. I did not really warm up to Rachel, despite her good intentions. Still, I was intrigued enough to read this book in one sitting. I think I was trying to get to the end to compare. The Fire Child is a good thriller but did not live up to my expectations. The key element to make it great was missing.
Manipulated Lives, H.A Leuschel
Review to come!
