September TBR!

Hey there folks! I have a lot on my plate this month. There are a lot of "scheduled reading", but I'm going to try to read books I want to read as well, so that I don't feel like I'm in school. Have you guys read any of these books? If so, how did you like them?

The first book is obviously The Martian by Andy Weir. I'm only about halfway through. It's about Watney, an astronaut stranded on mars for years. Years. He finds ways to survive because he is an engineer and a botanist. But the fun part; he's a sarcastic asshole. His personality gives this book it's distinct flavor. Without Watney, this would be another scifi about living on mars all by yourself. This is probably one of my favorites for the year, just for Watney. I'm in love with this book and can't put it down. I will definitely be doing a review on this one soon.

Next I'm reading The Wraith of Carter's Mill by c Evenfall. This is a supernatural book, about a family curse that's been passed down generations. I'm not exactly sure of this is the entire series, or the last of the series, but it's about Julia, who torments her possesed sister Susie. Then after Julia dies, her daughter Libby and granddaughter Shyanne discover their powers to see the spirits around them, and be transported into visions of the past. It all revolves around this little black shadow man which is the curse. It's a very interesting read, not bad at all. I'll be doing a blog our for this book on the 6th. Yes, Sunday!

Another blog tour coming up is for Splintered Souls by Erica Lucke Dean. This is a story about a girl who gives up her dreams of going to a huge university, so she and her mother and little brother can move to a family home in Main. Her father has just died of a heart attack, and knows that her mother can't cope with her leaving too. So she stays with them in her grandmother's house, where something is amiss. It is another generational book, but I think this one is more of a butterfly affect thing instead of a curse. I've not gotten far into it, but I will be reading it.

This is a book about a handicapped boy with healing powers. He's called a spinner, and his grandmother is using him to heal the children she beats. There are people out there who want him for his powers, and he has to find a way to live safely. I don't know much more about this book, there are good reviews on it though.

I have recently discovered that my favorite type of books are in a journal or letter format. So I've decided to take this book off my bookshelf and read it. It's a memoir I think? About a colored woman in an interesting predicament and how her race affects things in her life. I'm excited to read this one as soon as I finish The Martian. It has a lot of good reviews so it seems promising!
