September Rewind!

Hello everyone! I cannot believe that September is coming to a close. I have no idea where the month went–though I’m more than ready for fall and the creepy fun that October brings. If you want to see any of the entries I talk about in more details, check this entries tags, and that will take you right to them.

First up Reviews!

Night Circus By Erin Morgenstern. I really enjoyed this book. I’m happy that I gave it a second chance and actually read it all the way through. The world was beautiful and complex and ripe with details.

Top Ten Tuesdays!

I shared my thoughts on The Top Ten Books I wish they Taught in School and got a little sidetracked. I also shared my Top Ten Books that Need to be made into Tv/Movies which is something I think on a lot.

Wednesday Briefs
I participated all four weeks of September. Wednesday Briefs is essentially a group of authors/bloogers who write a piece of flash fiction each week based off of a series of prompts. I’m having a lot of fun with this, and I’ve started to expand scenes on my own, and world build further. I’m hoping to publish this in the upcoming months.

Musing Mondays
In this post I talked about new books that I purchased and books that I’m really looking forward to reading.

Classics Club
This month I joined the Classics club and pledged to read fifty classic novels in five years. You can check out my list in the tabs at the top of the blog. I also contributed to their monthly question, and talked about my love affair with Catcher in the Rye.

Cover Reveal!
I was so happy and honored to be part of Amanda Maxlyn’s cover reveal for her debut novel “What’s Left of Me”. It looks to be a great book and I can’t wait to get my hands on it.

To the month ahead!
I’m really looking forward to upping the amount of reviews, as I only did one the entire month of September. I’m also planning other blog posts, and participating in a few things. I got the opportunity to do some work with a couple of blog tours, and I’m just super excited for October and getting into spooky reads.

I hope you all have a great day, and I’ll talk to you soon.

Waiting on Wednesday: Red Hill by Jamie McGuire

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to talk about the books that you’re eagerly waiting for.

Red Hill By Jamie McGuire.

Release Date: October 1, 2013

What it’s about: For Scarlet, raising her two daughters alone means fighting for tomorrow is an everyday battle. Nathan has a wife, but can’t remember what it’s like to be in love; only his young daughter Zoe makes coming home worthwhile. Miranda’s biggest concern is whether her new VW Bug is big enough to carry her sister and their boyfriends on a weekend escape from college finals.

When reports of a widespread, deadly “outbreak” begin to surface, these ordinary people face extraordinary circumstances and suddenly their fates are intertwined. Recognizing they can’t outrun the danger, Scarlet, Nathan, and Miranda desperately seek shelter at the same secluded ranch, Red Hill. Emotions run high while old and new relationships are tested in the face of a terrifying enemy—an enemy who no longer remembers what it’s like to be human.

Set against the backdrop of a brilliantly realized apocalyptic world, love somehow finds a way to survive. But what happens when the one you’d die for becomes the one who could destroy you?

Shelly’s thoughts: I’ve read a couple other books by Jamie McGuire, namely Walking Distaster and Providence. I was poking around Amazon and found that she had a new book coming out in October. Since I’ve been on such a huge apocalyptic genre kick I immediately gravitated toward this book. I really love the worlds that McGuire builds and I know that this will become a book that I’ll shove at everyone demanding that they read it. Plus it sounds spooky, which will be perfect for October and Halloween season.

What releases are you looking forward to? Go ahead and leave me a link to your Waiting on Wednesday post and I’ll check it out. Thanks for stopping by!
