I saw this tag the other day at Fernanda’s blog, and it was so interesting that I just wanted to do it myself! You can read her post here and if you haven’t yet, check out her blog as well!
First and foremost, I want to thank to Beth from over Books Nest for sending this book my way. Honestly if it wasn’t for winning the giveaway, I probably wouldn’t have picked it up this book for a good while. So thank you so much, Beth! Make sure to check her blog out!

I have to say I went into this book not knowing much about the story, only that it’s a scifi YA book, that has a big game in it that many people play and that is all. I wasn’t sure if I’d even like it so it was a pleasant surprise finding myself absolutely loving this book.
September is over already, this month has been so damn busy, so this wrap up is going to be rather slim but here we go, the books I got to read this month: 5 books, 1505 pages.

So far receiving a book in a FairyLoot box has never disappointed me, they were always at least 4 stars readings. I guess there is always that one first time, like now with this book. I didn’t dislike it but it did confuse me a handful of times, was really damn slow at times when I thought we were finally getting into it.
First and foremost: trigger warning for mentions of sexual abuse, violence, gore, animal abuse and killing, vulgar language

Sadly it took longer to finish than I expected, starting a new uni got my time totally screwed up, but finally I had time to finish it and finally I can bring you the review as well.
I have mixed feelings for this book. I really, really love the setting, I like that we get to follow an anti-hero, I like the whole plot and enjoy the story all together, but I have issues with the the language, with Jorg, with how the author isn’t seem to be able to portray women properly, except for two (Jorg’s mother and Miana). I’m torn between liking and loving this book and the series in general.
I’m well aware, I’m really late with this but sadly it arrived right after I left my parents place and mom wouldn’t send the box after me, so I had to wait two weeks to get to this wonderful box. But it’s finally here and now I won’t spoil anyone who got the August FairyLoot box! So without further do, let’s see what this box had in it! Be aware of the pictures!
I tried hard to make them pretty hahaha! Oh and also, mom already opened the box by the time I got home! Bad mom…
This post is not promoted by FairyLoot, I purchased it for my birthday, which is obviously in August, though I got it a little late.
I’ve been tagged to do this tag by my Hungarian friend, Arwen5 from over A penchant for fantasy blog. Anyone who knows Hungarian or are Hungarian can check her post out here. The tag was officially made by Lauren Ann over at Youtube, you can check the video here. The task is easy: you write down a couple of books and pick out three and choose which one you’d burn, which one you’d rewrite and which you’d reread.
Please don’t hate me for my choices, I don’t try to offense anyone with which book I’d burn in the choices.
The other day I was watching Regan from PeruseProject put up a video like this and then Hannah from A Clockwork Reader as well and I thought why not make a post myself. So this summer I read 23 books, which I am really pleased with. I have a July wrap up and an August wrap up up on my blog, not June because I hasn’t really started my blog before July, you see. The books I’ll list down will not be in any particular order, just how I felt like listing them. But without anything else let’s get started!
