Books in September

This is a look at the books that I am intending to read in September. I've already started on some of them. I'm very excited. It's fun. If I finish them all I'll read something else, but I haven't decided which yet.  

The Knife of Never Letting go by Patrick Ness
People keep saying how amazing this series is, and I think it’s about time I start reading them. I read another Patrick Ness book, and it was really good. And I think maybe I should read some more. This is the first book in the Chaos Walking series. It’s about Todd, who lives in Prentisstown, a town where everyone can hear everyone else’s thoughts. Todd and his dog Manchee suddenly stumble upon an area where there is complete silence. And suddenly everything changes. It sounds really interesting, people say it’s awesome. So I’ll read that.

Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
I think I got this cause it was a Kindle Deal. It sounds pretty interesting though. It’s about a girl named Aria who lives in a sort of sort of protected dome called Reverie. It’s set in the future sometime, and the people outside the dome are savages. Aria’s mother goes missing and she wants to find her, because of a crime and then a fire Aria is thrown out of Reverie. During the fire she meets an outsider named Perry. It sounds cool, it’s got a lot of different kinds of reviews. It’s exciting.

Animal Farm by George Orwell
I feel like this is a book you should read. George Orwell dude. It’s a book about farm animals who are sick of being under the control of humans so they revolt and make their own society, but then the pigs take control and argue that all animals are equal, but some are more equal than others. It sounds amazing. I like it. Also I like it when I read or watch something and then suddenly get the references, which is delightful.

Fire by Kristin Cashore
I read Graceling last month, it was pretty awesome. I was pleasantly surprised. This isn’t really a sequel, it’s more of a companion novel and it’s set before Graceling, as far as I can tell. It’s about a young woman named Fire who is the last human monster. In this world monsters are impossibly beautiful creatures who attack regular people. They can sense each other and they can sense Fire. Fire is basically monster food. She is adored for her beauty, and hated for her ability to control people. Fire’s father was advisor to the previous king of her homeland, the Dells, and the two of them made the country chaotic and evil. Fire is wary of her ability to control others and she dreads turning into her father, so she has hidden away in the forest. Then the king’s brother brings her to court to unravel a plot that might kill the king. Fire realizes she might be able to help and use her powers for good. I saw some quite hilarious reviews though, which is good. Anyway, I’m excited.

Hocus Pocus by Kurt Vonnegut
Read Slaughterhouse-Five recently, Vonnegut is delightful, I loved it. I need more. I went to the library, and found some. I’ve never actually heard about this book, which makes me feel kind of horrible to be honest, but I can’t know about everything. It is about a man named Eugene who is fired from his job as a college professor and starts working at a prison, teaching the inmates. Eventually there is a prison break and the escapees take over Eugene’s old college. It sounds sort of hilarious and interesting, so it’ll be fun. ALSO: I used the library for the first time in a very long time, it was awesome.
