Want To Read || September 2021

A few books that I really want to get to this month!

There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins

I’ve had this on my TBR for quite some time now and I’m in the mood to read this type of story! So I’m hoping to get to it this month!

The Anthropocene Reviewed by John Green

This is not a genre that I read a lot from. But I do enjoy John Green works. And I’ve heard good things about this one! I’m hoping to get the audiobook from my library!

Heartstopper Volume 1 by Alice Oseman (reread)

This is a reread for me. I read the first two volumes earlier this year and absolutely loved them. My library FINALLY got volume three in, so I plan to reread the first two volumes again!

Come on, Bayview, you know you’ve missed this.

A ton of copycat gossip apps have popped up since Simon died, but in the year since the Bayview four were cleared of his shocking death, no one’s been able to fill the gossip void quite like he could. The problem is no one has the facts.

Until now. This time it’s not an app, though—it’s a game. Truth or Dare.

Phoebe’s the first target. If you choose not to play, it’s a truth. And hers is dark.Then comes Maeve and she should know better—always choose the dare. But by the time Knox is about to be tagged, things have gotten dangerous. The dares have become deadly, and if Maeve learned anything from Bronwyn last year, it’s that they can’t count on the police for help. Or protection.

Simon’s gone, but someone’s determined to keep his legacy at Bayview High alive. And this time, there’s a whole new set of rules.

Dewey’s Reverse Readathon Wrap Up

Dewey’s 24 Reverse Readathon is over and I feel very happy with myself. I was able to read two books and had a lot of fun participating in sprints, and seeing people’s updates online.

I started the readathon with Date Me, Bryson Keller by Kevin Van Whye. I thought this would be a fun and quick read for this readathon and I was right! I was really enjoying this one.

I decided to change it up and pick up an audiobook. I went with Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll because I also had a physical copy of this so I could follow along. I got about 40 pages into this and was just not feeling it so I put it down. I still wanted an audiobook so I jumped onto Libby and chose Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds. This was a good choice. It was quick, but also very engaging!

The next day I spent the rest of the readathon finishing Date Me, Bryson Keller.

Overall, I completed two books, a total of 642 pages in 24 hours. I’m happy with that! It was a fun and relaxing readathon and I’m excited for the next one!

Did you participate in the Reverse Readathon? If so, how did you do?

Honestly, I’m not sure what I want to read at the moment. I’m kind of in the thriller mood, but also a romance mood. I also have a couple library books on my kindle that I need to get to as well! So honestly, we’ll see what the mood is for the weekend! As of now some options include:

  • Boyfriend Material by Alexis Hall
  • Date Me, Bryson Keller by Kevin Van Whye

What do you guys plan to read?

Drama Recommendation

I thought it would be fun to share one drama that I would recommend! I don’t want to spoil anything so I’m just going to share a synopsis from Mydramalist. The drama I want to recommend is:

LAW SCHOOL!

This drama was such a surprise for me. A really interesting story as well as interesting characters! You can find this on Netflix!

When a grim incident occurs at their prestigious school, justice through law is put to the test by a tough law professor and his ambitious students.

Yang Jong Hoon is a criminal law professor and a former elite prosecutor, whose harsh words make him the professor to steer clear of. At the same time, there’s something compelling about his strict teaching methods and his refusal to accept less than the best from his future juniors in the legal profession.

Han Joon Hwi, a first-year law student, is at the top of his class. He’s a natural leader whose good looks and easy charm make him the perfect man – on paper. However, there’s an unexpected side to him that remains well-hidden.

Kang Sol (A) is another first-year law student who overcame childhood poverty and hardships by gaining special admission to the school. She walks a path of thorns due to her constant sense of deprivation and shame amidst the wealth and talent that surrounds her. Eventually, her passion will enlighten her on what it truly takes to be a good lawyer.

Kim Eun Sook is a civil law professor who was once the head of the law school’s free legal clinic. Her natural air of authority and freewheeling personality earned her the reputation for being a master in court. Known for being a highly relatable professor, she is the sole colleague Yang Jong Hoon dares to confide in.
