September Wrap Up

 

After two terms of doing my undergraduate thesis in AB Psychology on LGBT and conversion therapy, I am officially back to blogging! It’s sad when I saw that I’ve only read 20 books so far (compared to the 100 books I’ve read every year before), so I’m trying to catch up with that as well.

I also made some changes on the design of the blog in terms of the blog header and the graphics I use for each post. What do you guys think about the changed I made?

(The old Header)(New header and blog graphics)

Finally, I shifted from Blogger to WordPress! What do you guys think? I’m now http://www.divergentgryffindorblog.wordpress.com instead of http://www.divergentgryffindor.blogspot.com, yay!

 

 
What book should I read first, though?
Thank you, Netgalley and Edelweiss for these!
Thank you, Macmillan Audio for these audiobooks!
 Thank you, JM and PRH Global for making me a part of the blog tour!
Bought from the Manila International Book Fair at a much discounted price!

 

 

  1. Words on Bathroom Walls by Julia Walton  ★★★★ – Get a glimpse of what it’s like to be in the head of someone with schizophrenia.
  2. The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi  ★★ – Not really worth the hype, in my opinion.
  3. They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera  ★★★★★ – Please enlighten yourselves and read this perfect novel by Adam Silvera!
  4. A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas  ★★★★★ – Every bit as explosive as I expected, and still managed to top my expectations to garner 5 stars!
  5. Before She Ignites by Jodi Meadows  ★★★ – I found myself disliking how much the girl pitied herself, and how the emphasis was on the physical appearance
  6. Ruined by Amy Tintera  ★★★★ – I was so surprised at how amazing this is, and it looks like I have another series to look forward to.
  7. Hunted by Meagan Spooner  ★★★★ – Beauty and the Beast was never retold with this much emotion before, featuring a headstrong Belle who actually uses her brain. Must-read!
  8. Top Ten by Katie Cotugno  ★★★ – Started out annoying but ended just okay. Kinda meh.

  3. EVENT RECAP: Manila Internation Book Bair (#MIBF)

  1. Your new header is really pretty! I’m oddly curious about Batman Nightwalker, so I hope you enjoy reading it 🙂 Personally, I’d vote for Godsgrave or Wonder Woman as the first book of the pile to read.

    Happy reading in October ❤

  2. I’ve thought before about switching from blogspot to wordpress, but I was worried it would be a)horribly difficult and b)I would lose my old posts and comments. How was it for you switching platforms?

  3. I LOVE it, Kim! The blog and header and EVERYTHING looks fantastic!! I just saw Last Star Burning today. It looks pretty intriguing (and I don’t know how it snuck by me). Busted is on my TBR–it looks like a fun one. Happy reading!

  4. I love your graphics! I’ve been thinking about changing up the graphics on my blog as well (and I kind of hate you for your graphics because they’re exactly the sort of graphics I’ve been wanting to use. I wish I’d found them first! LOL.)

    I’ve got a copy of Girls Made of Snow and Glass that I need to read, eventually. I’ll find time at some point I’m sure.

    Have a great week.

  5. Ooo, I got Busted for review from NetGalley as well and finished it last week. I don’t read a lot of contemporary so personally I don’t have a lot to go on, but I enjoyed it well enough. Would be interested in your thoughts!
