August Wrap Up

This year is sort of running me over. So, August is gone, that’s WOW, i felt like the month passed too fast but at the same time it wouldn’t come to an end (??). It was sort of weird.

Anyway, another month of reading, .. it was a good month. I read some really interesting stuff i really loved and some others that were good too but i’m not sure i would reread them…

And now, let me show you the books i read this past month!

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - Parts One and Two by J.K. Rowling Harry Potter and the Cursed Child  by J.K. Rowling, Jack Throne, and John Tiffany ♥♥♥♥

Now that i realize, i totally forgot to write a review to this book/play… i hope i’ll get to it in September, though i don’t think there’s much i can say that wasn’t sad by others… maybe instead of a review i’ll publish an opinion on it and some other stuff happening in the Harry Potter universe this year…

It was a nice read, i really enjoyed Scorpion&Albus’s friendship/characters. I wish we could get some more reading material about them both.

I’m not a 100% sure it was in the same level as the other books, as it wasn’t written by the same person and if i could reread it. But, for the moment it was a fun read and i’m glad i read it. Anyway… review coming soon (enough).

La Misa del Diablo by Miguel Prenz The Black Mass/The Devil’s Mass by  Miguel Prenz ♥♥♥♥

This book was my fourth non-fiction reading this year, meaning i got to my goal of reading 4 non-fiction books in 2016.

The book is about the murder of a kid that happened in Argentina back on 2006. The actual murder was treated a satanic ritual perpetrated by Umbanda believers.

It tries to understand what really happened and who were the intellectual authors of the crime since the perpetrators say they are just patsies.

It’s a very interesting reading, since it starts with the murder of a child, but it turns to all the corruption happening in the province where it happened and honestly, apparently there were a lot more of people implicated that it seems. All very dark, creepy, and unsettling.

I'm Thinking of Ending Things by Iain Reid I’m Thinking of Ending Things by Iain Reid ♥♥♥♥

The more i think about this book, the more i like it.

It’s the weird story of a couple traveling to meet the boyfriend’s parents in the country. The book is all dark and shady, most of the time you won’t understand what is actually happening, and it gives the book a more enjoyable touch.

I wrote a review for the book, you can find it HERE.

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli ♥♥♥♥♥

This book was actually one of my favorite reads last year, so i decided to give myself a treat and read something that i knew i loved.

This is one of the sweetest books i’ve read, i had so much fun reading it again, pretty much like the first time i read it.

Since i jsut reread it, it’s pretty fresh in my mind and i haven’t reviewed the book yet, i’ll try my best to write the review for this in the next weeks. It’s a really great read and i totally recommend the book to everyone. Please stay tuned for the review coming up!

City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare ♥♥♥♥(more like 4.5)

Another reread for me this month. Really enjoyed it. It totally reminded me why i love the series so much.

By far my favorite book from the second trilogy of The Mortal Instruments.

I talk about the TMI a lot, so i don’t think there’s much i need to say about it here, really…

Fan Art by Sarah Tregay Fan Art by Sarah Tregay ♥♥♥♥

The sweet story of a boy in love with his best friend, but is his best friend in love with him? Is Mason actually flirting with him? Is Jamie imagining this stuff?

A really fun and easy read, i recommend it to people that enjoyed Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda and ones that haven’t read that one, yet. I think i’ll be posting a review for this one too… man, i’m really behind with my reviews! i hope i get some inspiration soon to write them! i’ll try to post two reviews per week this month…

Unlocking Worlds by Sally  Allen Unlocking Worlds by Sally Allen ♥♥

A book for book lovers, the author talks about what is like to love reading books. I really liked the fact that it put into words my messsed up thoughts about reading and everything book related.

The second part of the book gives you recommendations of books according to the genre you like to read. There are some interesting recommendations there, it was a good read.

Poe Dameron #5 by Charles Soule Poe Dameron #5 by Charles Soule and Illustrations by Phil Noto ♥♥♥♥

Poe Dameron’s comic, August issue.

This one was pretty interesting, i’m still waiting for all the action to really begin, but it seems we are heading in the right way. Really looking forward for it to continue. I love Poe and i think there’s a lot of potental on his characters, I hope it lives to the hype.

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury Classic of the month – Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury ♥♥♥♥♥

Man this freaking book. So a few months ago i read 1984 by George Orwell, and i thought no classic will get to its level (in my liking scale) but this book was freaking amazing. I enjoyed every single moment i was reading it, like seriously i just couldn’t get to the end fast enough, i was dying to know what will happen next.

I totally recommend this book to every book lover, i don’t know. I feel like everyone should at least give it a try. Like, okay, i’m just in love with it.

The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe  Classic of the monthThe Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe ♥♥♥

So, i read another classic this month, i did it because last month i didn’t read any… i decided on this one…. i don’t know why but i didn’t enjoyed it as much as i expect. May be because i already knew the endgame of it or something … Still, the way he chose the words was amazing, and that was an enjoyment by itself.

 

And that’s all for the wrap up! Pretty neat month 😀

Hope this September it’s a good reading month to everyone!

Happy Readings!
