September Book Haul

Another new month ... another new book haul!  YAY!  On a side note, can you believe that the summer is over?!  I can't believe how quickly the summer months flew by, especially August, and I officially start my senior year of college this Tuesday!  AHH!

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Obviously, the movie came out recently, earlier in the summer, so I wanted to pick up the book to read.  Now I ordered this book online and there wasn't enough time to read the book before the movie left theaters, so I ended up watching the movie before reading the book, which I try to avoid.  However, I loved both of these!  I loved the book more that the movie (just because that's what I prefer), but I really did enjoy the movie too.  My only issue with the movie is I feel like those watching who didn't read the book, may not understand the underlying themes.  Overall, I really enjoyed reading the book, and a book and movie review will be up shortly!

Beauty Queens by Libba Bray

I have heard so many people talk about how great this book is and how perfect it is for the summertime!   So I decided to pick it up and give it a go!  I can't wait to read this book ... beauty queens stranded sounds like it could be a lot of fun and very interesting! (AND BONUS: it's one of the books that was pulled out of my book jar!)

Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers

The last book in this haul I don't know too much about aside from the fact that I really want to read this!  I kept putting it in my online shopping cart and kept picking it up at the bookstore, but I was nervous to get into another trilogy as I was kinda getting sick of them for a while.  However, this book sounds so interesting.  I believe it is about nuns who are trained to murder?  I could be wrong about that, but it does sound really good!

Have you read any of these books?  What did you think of them?  I think I got a pretty good variety of books in this haul ... a classic, a beachy read, and a young adult novel.
