Hi all we are in a new month which means it’s time for another stories of the month I hope you all enjoy this month instalment I read quite a new books this month and have reached my Goodreads goal of 20 (I set it low because last year was terrible). I hope September goes just as well as august.
house of many ways
This is the Third book in Diana’s Howls moving castle series, I definitely preferred this sequel to the second instalment castle in the air as I felt this one had more of the same magical charm of the first one also Howl and Sofie are actually in the book.
Charmain Baker is in over her head. Looking after Great Uncle William’s tiny cottage while he’s ill should have been easy, but Great Uncle William is better known as the Royal Wizard Norland and his house bends space and time. Its single door leads to any number of places – the bedrooms, the kitchen, the caves under the mountains, the past, to name but a few.
By opening that door, Charmain is now also looking after an extremely magical stray dog, a muddled young apprentice wizard and a box of the king’s most treasured documents, as well as irritating a clan of small blue creatures.
Caught up in an intense royal search, she encounters an intimidating sorceress named Sophie. And where Sophie is, can the Wizard Howl and fire demon Calcifer be far behind?
Fruits basket collection vol 2
this one actually took me some time to read as I was watching the anime at the same time, but I read the last four chapters this month so it’s on the list.
When she was living in a tent pitched on the Sohma family’s land, Tohru Honda’s primary concerns were dirt and slugs. But now that she’s living with the Sohmas, she’s gotten a crash course in magical powers and ancient curses! And as if keeping the Sohma clan secret wasn’t bad enough, Tohru has to work overtime to prevent all the jealous girls from finding out that she’s living under the same roof as the school prince, Yuki, and the school hothead, Kyo! What new drama will Valentine’s Day bring into Tohru’s life?!
This one is very different from the first two volumes and I think as it was following Suwa from the original timeline it was more emotional
Experience the world of orange from a whole new perspective, as the fate of the present and future timelines unfolds from the point of view of the ever-cheerful third wheel, Suwa Hiroto. Reuniting years later in college, Suwa and Naho’s lives have been forever scarred by their experiences in high school. They say time heals all wounds, but sometimes, time is not enough.
muse of nightmares
me and my husband listened to this one together and we both really enjoyed it, I did start to read this one when it came out but I kept getting distracted by other books so I’m glad I was able to finish this duology, as it was really good. We were on the edge of our seats throughout the book.
In the wake of tragedy, neither Lazlo nor Sarai are who they were before. One a god, the other a ghost, they struggle to grasp the new boundaries of their selves as dark-minded Minya holds them hostage, intent on vengeance against Weep.
Lazlo faces an unthinkable choice – save the woman he loves, or everyone else? – while Sarai feels more helpless than ever. But is she?
As humans and godspawn reel in the aftermath of the citadel’s near fall and a new foe shatters their fragile hopes, the Muse of Nightmares must take possession her power – and of her fate, and everyone else’s.
Love and hate, revenge and redemption, destruction and salvation all clash in this gorgeous sequel to the international bestseller, Strange the Dreamer.
ho my gosh I loved this book this my be my favourite read of the year so far. I loved the characters, the setting and the story line. I felt that the love story was really well done and never felt rushed, I liked the world building and the history of the world that you discovered through out the the book also that it had a little bit of magic. I also felt like it had similarities to you’ve got Mail wether this was done on purpose or if it’s were I’ve watched the film so much and it is also about two people writing letters to each other without them knowing who they are.
No god, no creature, no war can come between them.

But when Iris’s letters to her brother fall into the wrong hands – that of the handsome but cold Roman Kitt, her rival at the paper – an unlikely magical connection forms.
Expelled into the middle of a mystical war, magical typewriters in tow, can their bond withstand the fight for the fate of mankind and, most importantly, love?
An epic enemies-to-lovers fantasy novel filled with hope and heartbreak, and the unparalleled power of love.
Guardians of the galaxy vol 3
as this is a Marvel movie I will not say much about this film but, I feel like this my of been my favourite guardians movies of them all
as the original has been remastered in 4k I decided to watch I didn’t feel like there was that much differences but it has also been along time since I watched it so that my be way.
this ark was very cut seen havey which wasn’t a bad thing but it feels like it makes you explore less then in previous arks, even the final boss felt like it was more of a cut seen then an actual fight which again isn’t necessarily a bad thing for me as I have found the last boss fight really tricky, but it then did feel like it took away from the challenge. The land of Sumeru is absolutely breathtaking and there is definitely lots to see and do, just unfortunate where I’m behind with the game a new area is already available to explore which I will talk about next month probably so once I’ve all caught up I can go back for all of the side quests. I also think Lesser Lord Kusanali may be my favourite arcon as she’s so sweet and kind and really cares about the people of Sumeru.
well Wicked is an amazing musical, the cast was amazing, the music is great I enjoyed every moment of this musical I’m so glad I was finally able to go.
and there is another month over
