Books read:11

1. Were you happy with the amount you read?
It was ok since I was down for the count most of the month

Better than last month but still on the downside overall. This was a slow and stressful month for me. I let myself go without a reading plan for September. What I got going for me this month reading wise is variety!

5 stars: none

2. If you had a 5 star read, what was it and why?
No five star reads, nothing that impressed me much

This month there were no great stories to motivate me. Nothing I read was extra good.

1 stars:none

3. If you had a 1 or 2 star read, what was it and why?
I was finishing  manga serial Hapi Mari by Enjoji Maki and one of the three volumes I read this month had me rating it 2 stars. This manga is about arranged marriage in japanese style which seems to be totally confusing for me at times. At times this manga is very much about all the stressful things couples have to overcome in relationships and sometimes the amount of cultural quirks just takes me by surprise. I will have to make a post on this manga to try to clarify.

This month there were no awful reads.

Don_t-Be-Average

 

You can almost say I was bored and unimpressed during reading this month. I don’t want this trend to continue therefore for October I’ve decided to make a reading plan! More on the reading plan later!

DNF? reading 2 leftover from September!

Basically I try to avoid DNFs (Did Not Finish) in my reading to the point of masochism so instead here I put books I’m reading trough next month.

These are:

In Desert and Wilderness by Henryk Sienkiewicz
Outlander (Outlander series book 1) by Diana Gabaldon

variety
Genres: UF, HR, manga, graphic novel,YA, erotic, CR, historical – I kinda mixed em up more than usual

Urban fantasy, historical romance, graphic novel, young adult, contemporary, historical fiction, manga – the themes in the books I read this month really varied from phantasamagoric to history textbook style.

4. Any new book boyfriends?
Again none 😦

I really must work on this one! I shall start looking for new BB (Book Boyfriend) in Outlander book 1 by Diana Gabaldon!
5. Any new jerks?
None…

For some reason lately all vilians and jerk characters turn out to have at least some redeeming qualities. Seriously I miss getting worked out by hating a character or two…

6. Did you start any new series?
Started one and I’m unsure about continuing it, but I’m especially proud for continuing 2 manga series!

Technically I started one new series – The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen . It was ok and well but I don’t think I will be continuing it. This was graphic novel pool read and the review will soon be posted with more details.
7. Did you find any new authors that you loved?
No new authors impressed me this month
8. Any book you would recommend?
Kingdom Come and League of Extraordinary Gentlemen – both graphic novels

Whenever I can I like recommending graphic novels. These two had much to offer to a reader and that is the reason I recommend them. Also both are award winners in varied categories.
