September Book Haul

Fall is here and Halloween is just around the corner. I’m excited to get ready for all the spooky fun of October, but before September comes to an end, let’s go over this month’s book haul, shall we? 😉


Servant of the Underworld

A Priestess disappears from an empty room drenched in blood. It should be a usual investigation for Acatl, High Priest of the Dead–except that his estranged brother is involved, and the the more he digs, the deeper he is drawn into the political and magical intrigues of noblemen, soldiers, and priests-and of the gods themselves…

Servant of the Underworld was one Cupcakes and Machetes and I have had on our TBR lists for a hot minute so when she spotted it on sale really cheap on the kindle she let me know and I of course bought a copy as well. Can we say “future buddy read”?? 😉 ❤

Monstress, Vol. 3: Haven

Maika has spent most of her life learning how to fight, but how will she fare when the only way to save her life…is to make friends?”

NOTE: I’ve already read and reviewed this latest installment of Monstress, so if you’re interested in seeing what I thought of it here’s my review. 🙂

Giant Days: Volume 7 and also Volume 8

“Best friends Susan, Daisy, and Esther’s adventures at university continue.”

I’m always excited to read more Giant Days. Such a fun series with good characters and friendships. ❤

The City of Brass

“Among the bustling markets of eighteenth century Cairo, the city’s outcasts eke out a living swindling rich Ottoman nobles and foreign invaders alike. But alongside this new world the old stories linger. Tales of djinn and spirits. Of cities hidden among the swirling sands of the desert, full of enchantment, desire and riches. Where magic pours down every street, hanging in the air like dust. Many wish their lives could be filled with such wonder, but not Nahri. She knows the trades she uses to get by are just tricks and sleights of hand: there’s nothing magical about them. She only wishes to one day leave Cairo, but as the saying goes… Be careful what you wish for.”

If that blurb didn’t sell ya, friggin’ writing goddess Laini Taylor herself describes this book as: “An extravagant feast of a book – spicy and bloody, dizzyingly magical, and still, somehow, utterly believable”. YAAAAAAS, PLEASE! ❤ ❤ ❤ SIGN. ME. THE. HELL. UP!!!


So that was my book haul for the month of September. How about you? Add any new gems to your collection this month? What are you most excited to read in October??

  1. I’m so excited about October and fall and Halloween and everything! I’ll be reading Gothic novels for the entire month, but I need to squeeze in Monstress too, it looks so good! What movies/shows will you watch this month? I take you for a Tim Burton fanatic like myself 😛 Also, are you participating in Inktober or some other challenge? I love your drawing so I’d love to see some new ones. 😊

    1. Reading Gothic novels is a great way to spend October. 🙂 And yay, can’t wait to find out what you think of Monstress. I hope you enjoy it! 😀
      I do indeed like Tim Burton, so good guess! 😉 I am definitely participating in Inktober, but just doing as many drawings as I can squeeze in with my busy schedule. I’m hoping for 4 to 5 a week. 🙂 It’s been a lot of fun so far. And thank you so much! ❤ That makes me so happy to know you enjoy my drawings. I really appreciate it! ❤

      1. Yep! The Monstress is coming out here in two weeks on our annual book fair, and it’s on my shortlist even though they translated the title in a very stupid way. xD Thanks! Hehe knew it! 🙂 Awesome, I’m participating too, just for fun, I want to improve my drawing skills as I’ve been drawing digital-only since 2013 yikes. 😀 Hehe, thank you, I really love your drawings. 🙂 ❤

      2. Aw, thank you so much! ❤
        I really like doing digital drawings as well, but I really need to get back into it since it's been a while since I've used my art tablet. I really wish I had more time for art stuff again. And that's great that you're participating too!! 😀 Do you think you'll share any of your drawings on your blog? 🙂

      3. Hehe I’m the opposite, I got so used to my tablet that I try to ctrl+z on paper. xD Me too, I thought I’d manage to keep up with the challenges but I’m slacking horribly at this point. :S Yep, I’ll probably throw in a few in my October round-up! 🙂
