Seth drowns, desperate and alone. But then he wakes. Naked, thirsty, starving. But alive. And where is he? The street seems familiar, but everything is abandoned, overgrown, covered in dust. He remembers dying, his skull bashed against the rocks. Has he woken up in his own personal hell? Is there more to this life, or perhaps this afterlife? x
It’s my first time reading Patrick Ness’ book and I have to admit that I have high expectations because I’ve been hearing nothing but good things about his books. I’m still on page 32 and I can say that it’s a bit slow but the introduction is intriguing. I’m hoping to finish this book in the next two days so goodluck for me.
Also, I bought the cool “Professional Bookworm” mug above from Bookwormboutique. Go check their shop for awesome bookish merch.
September 3, 1940.
Ten peculiar children flee an army of deadly monsters.
And only one person can help them – but she’s trapped in the body of a bird.
The extraordinary journey that began in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children continues as Jacob Portman and his newfound friends journey to London, the peculiar capital of the world. There, they hope to find a cure for their beloved headmistress, Miss Peregrine. But in this war-torn city, hideous surprises lurk around every corner. And before Jacob can deliver the peculiar children to safety, he must make an important decision about his love for Emma Bloom. x
Halloween is coming so I’ve decided to finally read the second book from Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Hollow City. I actually started reading last night and I’m on page 103 right now. Jacob and the group meet new peculiar characters which are all interesting and funny at the same time. I’m excited to know more about these new characters and the adventures (not mention the danger) awaiting for the group.
I got my copy of Library of Souls a week after it was published and I’m planning to read it once I’m done with Hollow City.
There will be three tasks, spaced throughout the school year, and they will test the champions in many different ways… their magical prowess – their daring – their powers of deduction – and, of course, their ability to cope with danger.
The TRIWIZARD TOURNAMENT is to be held at Hogwarts. Only wizards who are over seventeen are allowed to enter – but that doesn’t stop Harry DREAMING that he will WIN the competition. Then at Hallowe’en, when the Goblet of Fire makes its selection, Harry is AMAZED to find his name is one of those that the MAGICAL cup picks out. He will face death-defying tasks, DRAGONS and Dark wizards, but with the help of his best friends, Ron and Hermione, he might just make it through – ALIVE!
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is our second read for this month. I’ve read the first three books earlier this year and we all know that September is the perfect month to continue the magical journey. I totally enjoyed the series and my favorite so far is Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. I am a late bloomer when it comes to Harry Potter and I have to say that I am happy because reading the books makes me feel younger.
The first two chapters, The Riddle House and The Scar, show us how Harry Potter and You-Know-Who are connected with each other. The Riddle House gave me chills and once again, I feel the dark magic of You-Know-Who. Even though I know the story of the whole series, I am still excited to read all of them.
“You look . . . better than before.”
Was that a compliment? I could have sworn Lucien gave Tamlin an encouraging nod.
“And you hair is . . . clean.”
This is our first read for the month of September. I’m on page 143 and it’s getting more and more exciting. Hoping to finish this before the this week ends.
“Is it better to lose someone slowly, or fast? Is it better to see them fade – knowing you’re helpless to hold on to them and watching them slide into the darkness – or is it easier to have them torn away from you in the night? Easier to say goodbye a hundred times, never knowing for sure which will be the last, or to say goodnight and never speak again? Which hurts the least? I don’t think either of us could tell you.” – p. 23
