September Wrap-Up


Book haul
Over September I aquired 10 books and a comic and short graphic novel. I was planning to buy less this month (as usual, haha), but it is not too bad since I actually had a very good reading month and ended up reading more than I bought! The books I bought this month are:
The New Ghost by Robert Hunter
- The Fall of Icarus by Ovid (A Little Black Classic)
- Mansfield Park by Jane Austen in the beautiful Vintage Classic edition that matches by copies of Persuasion and Sense & Sensibility.
- Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins (I loved the Hunger Games and I've been meaning to read something else by Collins)
- James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl
Fantastic Mr. Fox by Roald Dahl
- Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
Picture me Gone by Meg Rosoff
Wild Magic by Cat Weatherill
North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell (I really want to watch the BBC mini series, but I wanted to read the book first!)
- Angelfall by Susan Ee
The Flash Volume 1: Move Forward by Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato

Reading
This month I finally finished reading a book in Swedish that took me about a year to finish, because I only read a couple of pages each time I picked it up again. I'm pretty proud of myself for actually finishing the 600 page book. Eventhough I can read Swedish, it goes pretty slow... But practice makes perfect, so I should just read more in Swedish to improve. I do think the next book I will pick up in Swedish will be slightly shorter though! I just need to find a place where it's not crazy expensive to order Swedish books...

This month I read:
- Genom dina ögon (The Host in Swedish) by Stephenie Meyer
- The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories Volume 2
- The New Ghost by Robert Hunter
- The Crab With the Golden Claws by Hergé
- Guardians of the Galaxy: Beginnings by Tomas Palacios
- Through the Woods by Emily Caroll
- Fantastic Mr. Fox by Roald Dahl
- De twee jaar nadat [The two years after], a Dutch book, by Steef van Gorkum
- Eragon by Christopher Paolini
- Wild Magic by Cat Weatherill
- The Flash Volume 1: Move Forward by Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato
- North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell
- Myths of the Norsemen by Roger Lancelyn Green
- Picture me Gone by Meg Rosoff

My favorite of the month was North and South. It was a little different from what I expected but I ended up really enjoying it!

How was your reading month?

  1. So glad you enjoyed North and South! Elizabeth Gaskell is one of my favorite authors. My "big classic" this month was Anna Karenina and it was also wonderful.

    1. Yes, I definitely plan on picking up another of her books! Anna Karenina still seems intimidating to me, but one day I'll get to it. Glad you enjoyed it!
