This update came a bit sooner than some of the other ones that I’ve posted, and yes…I am definitely patting myself on the back for this. Haha. I tried laying things out a bit differently this time around, and would appreciate if you let me know if this works better for you, or not!
– CURRENTLY READING –
– Physical Books –
The Fire Queen by Emily R. King: I read and reviewed the first book in this series (The Hundredth Queen) earlier this year (you can read my review here) and really liked it. I am only a few pages into the sequel now because I didn’t expect this book to come in the mail, and had already filled all of my reading slots for September and October by the time it came haha. I might audiobook it so that I can finish it and review it quicker. We shall see. Update: I haven’t read any further into this book, sadly.
The Little Book of Hygge by Meik Wiking: I’d been eyeing this book for quite some time, but always came up with an excuse to not read it. When I saw that The Little Book of Lykke would be coming out on September 7th of this year (also at the Penguin Fall event that I attended in early September), I just had to request both! I’m not too far into it, but it’s quite the cozy read so far (especially for being nonfiction). Update: I have sadly made no progress on this book since my last post like this.
All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater: I’m only about 15% into this book, but so far what I can say about it is that I looooove Stiefvater’s writing, and also that this book feels unique from anything that I’ve ever read before!
Sources: I received physical ARCs of these books in exchange for
honest reviews from their respective publishers.
– AUDIOBOOKS –
How to be a Bawse by Lilly Sing: I took a break from listening to this audiobook actually, due to being busy, and super sucked into the story of The Lunar Chronicles! I’m sure I’ll return to it soon though.
Stars Above by Marissa Meyer: This is the collection of short stories/novellas from The Lunar Chronicles! Some of them I was told to read/listen to before I get to Winter, the 4th full novel in the series. I think it’s so great that the author wrote these stories for us!
Fairest by Marissa Meyer: The same thing applies to this book (as with Stars Above). Chronologically, this book becomes before all of the other full novels, short stories, and novellas, so it’ll be interesting to find out what happened here! Plus, I usually really enjoy hearing the villain’s side of the story, so to say. Hehe.

– CURRENTLY WATCHING –
– TV Shows / Dramas –
I’ve been watching noooooo TV shows. I’m patiently waiting for the 2nd season of Stranger Things!!! I was also able to make a post about My Top 10 Korean Dramas, which made me crave my Korean dramas that much more!
– MOVIES –
I did end up watching The Dark Tower movie, but was kind of disappointed. I don’t know what I was expecting, but…I don’t know. It had nothing to do with the acting, or any of the casting…but rather the atmosphere? And the story itself. I guess it just wasn’t for me. Sigh. We haven’t gone to see Blade Runner 2049 film yet, but maybe soon. I’ve also been watching some of the movies off my 13 Halloween/Spooky Movies That I’m Re-watching This October! So far, I’ve watched Hocus Pocus, When Good Ghouls Go Bad, Beetlejuice, and The Boxtrolls all the way through, and I’ve started Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, as well as Jane Eyre (but had to stop watching them due to starting them around family memebers, and being distracted from watching, haha).
THANKS SO MUCH FOR READING! WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN READING, WATCHING, LISTENING TO, AND/OR TRYING? ANYTHING THAT’S ON ANY OF MY LISTS? LET ME KNOW IN THE COMMENTS BELOW!
