August Wrap-up & September TBR 2019

Quite a sleepy yet fast in passing month in my opinion if that makes sense, I’ve done a lot of exciting things with my parents and support workers, but also there have been worries and a few negativities here and there and also things look a bit unclear in regards to my librarian course which is supposed to starting this month.

The worries above I mentioned are more to do with my worry regarding having to pay for my support workers weekly, I mean as I have mentioned before we are lucky to have had the amount due halved, but it is only for a year and it was still rather a surprise for us because the social worker who came to visit us felt quite confident we could have the costs lifted off us permanently :/ My parents have written two emails to appeal this but we haven’t heard anything back and we are going to hopefully phone them one of these days…

I won’t go on about worries though, my parents and I have had a really positive weekend last weekend and my parents are discussing where they’d like us to spend our annual Christmas holiday. Mum wanted to go to Asia and I would also go there if I had the choice, but she wanted dad to come too as she says Christmas is a family time and always has been since I was born, but dad cannot be away from home a long time due to the fact that his sister is left all alone to do all the work in the family business and there are complications with our hydro electricity and our pets and plants need looking after too. My aunt is also experiencing health problems of her own as she has a bad leg and her own pets which includes a very unstable dog which she doesn’t understand the psychology of… At the moment we are thinking of Europe for around 10 or 11 nights and I myself am fine with this although I can tell mum is wishing we could go somewhere warm at Christmas 😛

My main hopes at the moment are that I can get this college course to work out, get it kick started, and can somehow find what to do about this payment problem, but mostly with that the social worker needs to get in touch with us again.. Anyway, despite this past month being quite idle and generally positive, it would seem that I haven’t really kept to last months TBR AND it also seems that I haven’t done as much reading as I would have liked, typical me :/ I am trying to power through Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare and The Rule of Claw by John Brindley which were both on last months TBR so I will not include them on this months TBR as I am getting through them, well gradually anyway 😉

Storm Siren (Storm Siren, #1)Siren's Fury (Storm Siren, #2)The Blight of Muirwood (Legends of Muirwood, #2)Siren's Song (Storm Siren, #3)The Scourge of Muirwood (Legends of Muirwood, #3)Rebel Spring (Falling Kingdoms, #2)

  1. Storm Siren by Mary Weber
  2. Siren’s Fury by Mary Weber
  3. The Blight of Muirwood by Jeff Wheeler
  4. Siren’s Song by Mary Weber
  5. The Scourge of Muirwood by Jeff Wheeler
  6. Rebel Spring by Morgan Rhodes

6 books… hmmm… I have read less books before in a month so maybe I’m not as behind as I thought, but I can say without a doubt my favourite books out of all these are the Muitwood books as I never knew what was coming up next in them and as I have mentioned before, the magic system there just had me enthralled. I’ve already promised I’ll read more by this author cause how could anyone not like the characters and the informative authors notes at the end of each book? 😉 Those who have been with me this past month will know my least favourites of these books are the Siren trilogy by Mary Weber and that’s strange because the books weren’t exactly boring, which is usually the main reason I dislike a book, but they were just drab and lacking colour and fire in just about everything 😛 I feel glad to have finished them and hope the rest of my TBR can be more colourful. Rebel Spring was also a good book and I don’t know when I’ll read on in the series but I guarantee I will one day soon! 🙂


September TBR

A Clash of Kings (A Song of Ice and Fire, #2)The House of Hades (The Heroes of Olympus, #4)The Fall (The Glimpse, #2)Empress (Godspeaker Trilogy #1)

  1. A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin
  2. House of Hades by Rick Riordan
  3. The Fall by Claire Merle
  4. Empress by Karen Miller

Just how likely am I going to stick to this TBR? Even more, how likely am I to get all these books finished by the end of the month? 😂 Empress is a book I have recently ordered from my library as it’s their last copy and I’m a little worried the book will be removed from stock before I get a chance to read it and its sequels, but as always this TBR is always subject to change. I originally planned on reading the Fall and House of Hades last month, but I don’t know why, my priorities shifted (probably because I really wanted to get the Siren and Muirwood series finished as soon as). A Clash of Kings is a book I also planned on reading a while ago but it kept getting pushed back because of me fighting my losing battle to get my library TBR down by reading the shorter books I have out 😛 But here I will say Empress is the one I most look forward to reading as it has been calling me for some time and I see it isn’t really available on Amazon in paperback anymore in my country so I like I say I’d like to read this as soon as for fear my library will remove it from stock… Lol looks like as always there is way too much for me to read which as always is more than fine by me! 😀 😉
