September 2017 TBR
I didn’t do an August 2017 TBR purely because I had spent so much money on all these new books and I was feeling a little overwhelmed. I’m still a little overwhelmed especially seeing as I’ve just written all the books I need out in one place – which you can read all about here! So my September 2017 TBR isn’t going to be too ambitious and will focus on getting some of the books that have been sat on my shelf for a long time off.
Chloe Saunders is fifteen and would love to be normal. Unfortunately, Chloe happens to be a genetically engineered necromancer who can raise the dead without even trying. She and her equally gifted (or should that be ‘cursed’?) friends are now running for their lives from the evil corporation that created them.
As if that’s not enough, Chloe is struggling with her feelings for Simon, a sweet-tempered sorcerer, and his brother Derek, a not so sweet-tempered werewolf. And she has a horrible feeling she’s leaning towards the werewolf…
Definitely not normal.
I’m really thrilled to have this series read and the last book on my September 2017 TBR. Plus I’ll be able to make a decision on whether or not it will be staying on my shelf or not. I’m enjoying the series at the moment but I don’t know whether I will ever want to reread it. So I’m excited to finally make a decision!
The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender
Foolish love appears to be the Roux family birthright, an ominous forecast for its most recent progeny, Ava Lavender. Ava—in all other ways a normal girl—is born with the wings of a bird.
In a quest to understand her peculiar disposition and a growing desire to fit in with her peers, sixteen-year old Ava ventures into the wider world, ill-prepared for what she might discover and naïve to the twisted motives of others. Others like the pious Nathaniel Sorrows, who mistakes Ava for an angel and whose obsession with her grows until the night of the Summer Solstice celebration.
That night, the skies open up, rain and feathers fill the air, and Ava’s quest and her family’s saga build to a devastating crescendo.
This has been sat on my shelf for so long, like seriously the amount of dust that has been collecting is unbelievable. I was drawn to cover and there was so much hype around the story, so I’ve got some high expectations for this book – so here’s hoping it lives up to them. Another long awaited read for my September 2017 TBR.
Severed Heads, Broken Hearts
Golden boy Ezra Faulkner believes everyone has a tragedy waiting for them—a single encounter after which everything that really matters will happen. His particular tragedy waited until he was primed to lose it all: In one spectacular night, a reckless driver shatters Ezra’s knee, his career as a jock, and his social life.
No longer a front-runner for homecoming king, Ezra finds himself at the table of misfits, where he encounters new girl Cassidy Thorpe. Cassidy is unlike anyone Ezra’s ever met— achingly effortless, fiercely intelligent, and determined to bring Ezra along on her endless adventures.
Together, Ezra and Cassidy discover flash mobs, buried treasure, secret movie screenings, and a poodle that might just be the reincarnation of Jay Gatsby. But as Ezra dives into his new studies, new friendships, and new love, he learns that some people, like books, are easy to misread. And now he must consider: If one’s singular tragedy has already hit and everything after it has mattered quite a bit, what happens when more misfortune strikes?
This was another impulse buy but then it sat on my shelf for about 3 years and it’s time to find out whether it’ll be there permanently or whether it will be another from the September 2017 TBR list to hit local charity shops. We shall see. I’m hoping for great things but I’m not holding my breath, contemporaries are more than hit or miss for me.
Shatter Me, Unravel Me and Ignite Me
Juliette hasn’t touched anyone in exactly 264 days.
The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette’s touch is fatal. As long as she doesn’t hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don’t fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color.
The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war – and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she’s exactly what they need right now.
Juliette has to make a choice: Be a weapon. Or be a warrior.
This is a whole series marathon, I eventually bought the rest of the series in London and I want to read the whole of the series seeing as I recall really enjoying the first one. So those are the last three books for my September 2017 TBR.
Let me know what you’re reading in September! I would love some more recommendations! You know to make getting my massive TBR under control!
