September Wrap up - Book Haul & What to Expect Next Month

Hi there!

It's the end of September already. This month went by so fast.
I've been so busy. Started working again, 5 days a week with the kids in my classroom.
Have been going to school myself, on Thursday evenings to get my Gymnastics Certificate. That way I'll be able to teach the kids in my classroom gymnastics by myself.
I've been running together with the principal, to train for a 15K this November.
I'm preparing to move tomorrow, since I bought a house.

AAAAANNDD.. I've been sick. For a week now... Yup, that sucks. But I refuse to stay in bed, since I'm not THAT sick, but it just takes so much energy.

Anyway, I'm happy that I'm getting better, because I need all my energy to move.
I have been reading, but not that much. It's hard with such a busy schedule.
So; Sorry to all the authors, who are eagerly waiting for a review. I'm reading through my list, slowly but surely!

Here's this month's wrap up, my haul and what to expect next month!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend. 💙

Pages: 221

My score:
After a government sanctioned hit goes spectacularly wrong, Mossad agent Thomas is blamed for the mission’s failure by his superiors, ousted before completing his very first job. Desperate to prove himself, Thomas accepts an offer from his former handler, Yakov, to assassinate Jacob Okonjo, the head of the African Union. It seems Jacob is allowing certain parties to control Africa’s lucrative diamond trade, and in doing so has made some powerful enemies. But like that Mossad hit-team caught on camera in Dubi a few years back, how is Thomas supposed to terminate such a prominent figure without being caught on CCTV? The answer: to work undercover as a room-service waiter at a top London hotel, where, in a few months’ time, Jacob Okonjo will be staying. It’s the perfect plan.

Review: A Clash of Kings (A Song of Ice and Fire #2)

Author: George R.R. Martin
Started reading: August 23rd 2017
Finished the book: September 11th 2017
Pages: 827
Genres: Fantasy
Published: May 28th 2002
Source: Bought the book
Goodreads score: 4.40
My score:
A Clash of Kings transports us into a magnificent, forgotten land of revelry and revenge, wizardry and wartime. It is a tale in which maidens cavort with madmen, brother plots against brother, and the dead rise to walk in the night. Here a princess masquerades as an orphan boy; a knight of the mind prepares a poison for a treacherous sorceress; and wild men descend from the Mountains of the Moon to ravage the countryside.

Against a backdrop of incest and fratricide, alchemy and murder, the price of glory may be measured in blood. And the spoils of victory may just go to the men and women possessed of the coldest steel...and the coldest hearts. For when rulers clash, all of the land feels the tremors.

Until now sixteen-year-old Selina hasn’t had any prospects for a boyfriend. She’s been shunned by her peers due to her clumsy social skills and her oh-so-public blunders, not to mention her inclination to think and speak in hashtags and stage cues. But then Marcum, a mysterious foreign exchange student, arrives by way of an interplanetary spaceship. Selina is entranced by his good looks and an awkward manner that rivals her own. Marcum is captivated by Selina’s power to lengthen time, something she didn’t even know she could do. This could be a match made in the heavens … if it weren’t for two factors that will keep them apart. And a galactic journey Selina can’t possibly survive.

Review: The Infinite League

Author: John Yeo Jr.
Started reading: August 23rd 2017
Finished the book: August 30th 2017
Pages: 288
Genres: Action, Fiction
Published: May 2nd 2017
Source: Got a digital copy from the author
Goodreads score: Not enough ratings
My score:
Emily Watts had always wanted to be a police officer, just like her father. For her, the police are the real heroes of the world. Not those people that fly above her head every day, flaunting their special abilities and gifts and making ordinary people feel so inconsequential.

When Emily is involved in the accidental death of Andromeda, one of the world’s greatest and most beloved heroines, she finds herself in serious trouble. Faced with the threat of a prison sentence that would forever separate her from her son and sister, the government gives her an opportunity to avoid incarceration. It would mean lying to the entire world---and becoming what she detests the most.
