We have reached October! This means it is time for me to talk about the books I read in September. Don’t worry, there aren’t as many books as there were in August! With that being said, let’s take a look at the books I read in September.

Re-Reading My Childhood: The Subtle Knife.

Back in July, as part of my Sword and Laser reading challenge, I read Northern Lights by Philip Pullman. It had been quite a while since I read the entire His Dark Materials trilogy and I decided in July to complete the trilogy. This trilogy was one of the first fantasy series that completed as a child/almost teenager and so today, I thought I would share my thoughts on re-reading the second book in the trilogy, The Subtle Knife and talk about it compared to my memories of it.

Book Series That I Want To Finish.

I was recently going through the Sword and Laser book list and it occurred to me that there are a lot of book series and trilogies that I have started and never finished. This got me thinking, don’t worry this isn’t another challenge, about those series that I would love to revisit and continue with. So, without further ado, let’s take a look at these series!

Re-Reading My Childhood: Northern Lights.

Recently, I finished reading Northern Light, as part of my challenge to read all of the Sword and Laser book club picks. This isn’t the first time I’ve read the first book in  the His Dark Materials trilogy. I had read the whole trilogy back in the early 2000s, in between reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I remember being blown away by the trilogy, as I hadn’t read anything like it. So, let’s take a look and see if Northern Lights holds up to my childhood memories.

A Late Mid Year Freak Out Tag.

I know, it has been a little while since I posted. It turns out the end of June/beginning of July was quite a busy time for me. Now that things have quieted down, I wanted to share my responses for the Mid Year Freak Out Tag- a tag about the books I have read between January and June this year. I know quite a few people have responded to this tag and I don’t know who originally created it, so instead I will just link to Merphy Napier’s video on Youtube, which is where I first saw the tag. I would also recommend checking out Merphy’s videos on her main Youtube channel, especially if you enjoy reading fantasy novels and manga. OK, let’s stop procrastinating and take a look at this tag!

Re-Reading My Childhood: The Recruit.

I’ve recently started to replay the games I played as a child, starting with Sonic the Hedgehog which you can read about my experience here. It is not only video games that I have been revisiting, but also books as well. Like with the video games, I will be looking at the books I read up until I was sixteen. Today, I am talking about my re-read of The Recruit by Robert Muchamore.
