Inspired By: September Reads

The following four books were my favorite reads of September! One is about a daring heist, one about rescuing friends from evil, one takes you back to Hogwarts, and one follows the adventures of an arrogant god. And they're all glorious specimens of literature that you should read right away. 

Read my reviews for all four of these books RIGHT HERE!

Six of Crows
Six of Crows

Written by Leigh Bardugo; Ketterdam: a bustling hub of international trade where anything can be had for the right price—and no one knows that better than criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker. Kaz is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams. But he can't pull it off alone. 

Kaz is one seriously stylish thief. So if you too are going on a heist and want to look go then put on a long black coat, a red peplum top, black jeans, red gloves, and lace-up boots. Or if you'd prefer to be comfortable and hide in the shadows like Inej then slip on a gray hooded sweater, a purple tunic, black leggings, and black flats. 

Library of Souls
Library of Souls
Written by Ransom Riggs; Jacob discovers a powerful new ability and soon he’s diving through history to rescue his peculiar companions from a heavily guarded fortress. Jacob, Emma, and Addison will travelThey’ll travel from modern-day London to the labyrinthine alleys of Devil’s Acre, the most wretched slum in all of Victorian England. It’s a place where the fate of peculiar children everywhere will be decided once and for all. 

Go for a look based on the black and white vintage photograph cover: a ghostly lace dress, a black newsboy cap, a black blazer, and black booties. Or you can dress like Emma in the book when she wears a bright yellow dress in the worst loop of all, so put on a yellow dress, an orange circle scarf, a watch, and gray flats. 

Hogwarts: An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide
Hogwarts: An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide
Written by J.K. Rowling; Hogwarts An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide takes you on a journey to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. You’ll venture into the Hogwarts grounds, become better acquainted with its more permanent residents, learn more about lessons, and discover secrets of the castle. 

J.K. Rowling gives us another glimpse into everyone's favorite school: Hogwarts! Dress like one of the merpeople by wearing a green sweater dress, a sparkly blue necklace, mermaid earrings, and sparkly black flats. As a Hufflepuff, I particularly liked when she got to see inside the common room, so wear a black blazer, white collared shirt, yellow plaid skirt, and brown oxford flats. 

The Hidden Oracle (The Trials of Apollo #1)
The Hidden Oracle
Written by Rick Riordan; After angering his father Zeus, the god Apollo is cast down from Olympus. Weak and disorientated, he lands in New York City as a regular teenage boy. Now, without his godly powers, the four-thousand-year-old deity must learn to survive in the modern world until he can somehow find a way to regain Zeus's favor. And he can think of only one place to go: Camp Half-Blood.

Apollo is one of the snarkiest and funniest Greek gods ever, so he would definitely wear this "Hashtag Over It" shirt since he doesn't want to be a regular human. Add an olive jacket, jeans, and blue Converse sneakers. Or dress like his tough 12-year-old friend Meg by wearing a green tunic, ripped jeans, cat-eye glasses, and red Converse. 

Have you read any of these?

Outfit: Bibliophile (with Cocoa + JAM)

bibliophile (n) a lover of books; someone who finds joy and peace of mind while holding a quality book. 
This is the PERFECT lightweight comfy sweater for a book nerd like myself! I already spent this past weekend wearing it at home while curled up with a book. The temperatures were a little cooler this weekend, so it was a great time to break out this bookish sweater. It's also really soft, which makes me happy and which means I never want to take it off. 

So what's Cocoa + JAM? It's the magic that happens when three friends come together to make a shop full of witty and wonderful graphic tees, mugs, and tote bags. It's run by Julissa, Alexandra, and Marcia (hence the "jam" part). I've met Alexandra and Julissa at blog get-togethers and I also went to Alexandra's baby shower, so I would never pass up a chance to support them in their new endeavor. This shop is like an extension of them because they're just as cute and hilarious as their shirts!

So definitely check out their shirts and follow them on Instagram for style inspiration.

**I received this shirt for free. All opinions are my own.**
Shirt: Cocoa + JAM | Vest: via Poshmark | Jeans: American Eagle
Necklace: gift | Shoes: DSW | Bag: Target

Pocket Book Reviews {September 2016} + Giveaway!

The reason why I didn't read as many books this month as previous months? Doctor Who! I've been obsessively watching it over the past few weeks, which leaves little time for reading. I'm about to start season 9, which means I'm almost caught up. I'm not a huge fan of the 12th Doctor because he's kind of abrasive, but he's growing on me. Who's your favorite doctor? What did you read this month?

Library of Souls (Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children #3)
♥ (5 stars)

Written by Ransom Riggs; Jacob discovers a powerful new ability and soon he’s diving through history to rescue his peculiar companions from a heavily guarded fortress. Jacob, Emma, and Addison will travelThey’ll travel from modern-day London to the labyrinthine alleys of Devil’s Acre, the most wretched slum in all of Victorian England. It’s a place where the fate of peculiar children everywhere will be decided once and for all. 

The beginning gives no set-up and starts exactly where the second book left off. This whole book is a whirlwind of adventure, emotion, friendship, betrayal, and family. I knew Jacob and Emma would do anything to get into the wight's fortress to save their friends, but it's how they got to that point and who helped them that made it exciting. Sharon is a fascinating man and I liked that you're not sure whether to trust him or not. Bentham is also a new and interesting character with gray morals, who set some intriguing things in motion. The whole part about the Library of Souls was incredible and super interesting and I wish there'd been more about it. And the ending! Such a sweet and wonderful end to a delightful series!

♥ (3 stars)
Written by Dan Brown; In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology Robert Langdon is drawn into a harrowing world centered on Dante’s Inferno. Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle as he races to find answers and decide whom to trust . . . before the world is irrevocably altered. 
The reason this book didn't excite me like the previous Robert Langdon books is that it lacks a storyline featuring a secret society. I think it's Dan Brown's use of these secret societies is what made his other books so memorable and interesting. That's where Inferno falls flat. While this book is thrilling, horrifying, and has a lot of Brown's well-known mix of science and faith, it's also confusing, too long, and at times annoying. I will say that the ending is terrifyingly genius. (Read my spoilery review here.)

Short Stories from Hogwarts of Heroism, Hardship, and Dangerous Hobbies
♥ (4 stars)

Written by J.K. Rowling; These stories of heroism, hardship and dangerous hobbies profile two of the Harry Potter stories’ most courageous and iconic characters: Minerva McGonagall and Remus Lupin. J.K. Rowling also gives us a peek behind the closed curtains of Sybill Trelawney’s life, and you’ll encounter the reckless, magical-beast-loving Silvanus Kettleburn along the way.

Absolutely delightful! I loved getting a peek into the history of some of my favorite characters, like McGonagall and Lupin. Lupin has always been one of my favorite characters and I always felt his was the most tragic, so it was both wonderful and heartbreaking to read about his life. I was kind of hoping to learn more about Professors Sprout and Flitwick since they're in all of the books, but we really don't know they're backgrounds, but I enjoyed reading these short stories immensely.

Short Stories from Hogwarts of Power, Politics, and Pesky Poltergeists
♥ (4 stars)

Written by J.K. Rowling; These stories of power, politics and pesky poltergeists give you a glimpse into the darker side of the wizarding world, revealing the ruthless roots of Professor Umbridge, the lowdown on the Ministers for Magic and the history of the wizarding prison Azkaban. You will also delve deeper into Horace Slughorn’s early years as Potions master at Hogwarts - and his acquaintance with one Tom Marvolo Riddle.

A fascinating read! Getting a glimpse into the backgrounds of some of the "bad" guys from Harry Potter made for some interesting reading. In this collection, we get to know more about the woman we all love to hate, Umbridge, find out more about Slughorn, and even get into on Polyjuice Potion. Great read! I know this collection was about people who worked at Hogwarts, but I wish we'd gotten some info on some of the Death Eaters who had been at Hogwarts in the 7th book.

Hogwarts: An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide
 (5 stars)

Written by J.K. Rowling; Hogwarts An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide takes you on a journey to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. You’ll venture into the Hogwarts grounds, become better acquainted with its more permanent residents, learn more about lessons, and discover secrets of the castle. 

This was wonderful! Hogwarts will always be my home, so it was wonderful journeying back to learn more about the secrets that lie within its walls from none other than J.K. Rowling herself! As a Hufflepuff, I was really pleased to see a section about the Hufflepuff Common Room, but I would've liked to get tidbits on all of the Houses, despite having visited them in the books. I really enjoyed reading this!

Six of Crows
♥ (4 stars)

Written by Leigh Bardugo; Ketterdam: a bustling hub of international trade where anything can be had for the right price—and no one knows that better than criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker. Kaz is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams. But he can't pull it off alone.

I'm going to be honest: it took me a long time to get through this book and that's never a good sign. While I instantly liked the characters (even if they are callous and cold thieves), it took a long time for the story to really get going and I just wanted to go to the action and the heart of the story ie. the heist. That's why I took a star away. 

However, now that I've finished the story, when I look back at it, the whole set up is genius. Everything is perfectly calculated and considered and Kaz is a serious mastermind! He picked everyone on his crew for a specific reason and they're all so fascinating and so real and I enjoyed being inside all of their heads. 

I love that Kaz is cold and keeps everyone at a distance. Inej is silent as the night and resourceful. Nina is caring and skillful and sad. Jesper is hilarious and talks too much. Wylan is a total fish out of water and highly intelligent. And Mathias is among strangers and enemies but he has a good heart. I can't wait to see more of these guys in the next book. 

One thing I really liked was the timed tolls at the beginning of the heist chapters. It made it seems like the action was happening in real-time, like I could set my watch by it. So while I did have issues with the pacing at the beginning, the last 30% of the book is a gem! And oh my gawd that ending! Completely took me by surprise!

The Hidden Oracle (The Trials of Apollo #1)
♥ (4 stars)

Written by Rick Riordan; After angering his father Zeus, the god Apollo is cast down from Olympus. Weak and disorientated, he lands in New York City as a regular teenage boy. Now, without his godly powers, the four-thousand-year-old deity must learn to survive in the modern world until he can somehow find a way to regain Zeus's favor. And he can think of only one place to go: Camp Half-Blood.

Apollo is my new favorite character from this world of Greek gods and half-bloods! He's an absolute delight! He's arrogant and needy and annoying, but he's also HILARIOUS (seriously, everything he said was so funny!) and kind and caring and selfless. And he just wants to be appreciated. 

Every Rick Riordan book has a well-known and well-loved formula. There's a prophecy, demigods are chosen, they go on a guest, and things are mostly solved but leave room for a bigger story. THIS BOOK discarded that formula and I loved it! There was no prophecy and there was no formal quest and for very good reasons, which made this even more of a delight. It's like Riordan used this book to laugh at himself because he's in on the joke and he wants to throw you for a very good, very entertaining loop. 

Also, Percy and Leo are briefly in this book, which makes me so happy! But the greatest thing about this book hands down is Apollo! I've never seen a Riordan character change so drastically in one book. Apollo's change is natural and believable and makes me love him more. Can't wait to read the next one in the series!

♥ (4 stars)

Written by Rob Cham; This wordless comic book follows the exploits of a backpack-toting adventurer in a quest to find a mysterious treasure. Framed in black, the illustrations offer delightful bursts of color and are sure to entertain readers of any age.

This was an absolute delight to read! Despite the fact that there were no words, I knew exactly what was happening. The little guy has a map and has to find five colorful gems and gets the help of another little guy from the forest. The art is stunning. The background is always black and it's such a striking contrast to the bright and colorful art. The characters are cute and everything is simplistic in a lovely way. I adored this!

Inspired By: Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children

I read Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children when it first came out and have loved it ever since. The story is wonderfully odd, there are creepy vintage photographs throughout the book, the peculiar children and their talents are strange but cool, and the wights are scary. It all makes for a very unusual and fun series. The fact that Tim Burton is directing the movie is PERFECT! I don't think anyone else could do it as well as he. Can you tell I'm excited for this movie?!

The book by Ransom Riggs and movie follow Jacob Portman, a 16-year-old boy from the U.S., who journeys to Wales with his father after the death of his grandfather. There, he discovers a crumbling building that was once Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children that his grandfather spoke of. The children and Miss Peregrine should be long dead, but Jacob has a feeling they're still very much alive. 

The movie is coming out on September 30 in the U.S.

Miss Peregrine -- Jacob

Jacob (Asa Butterfield) is trying to come to terms with the death of his grandfather and the nightmares that have come from seeing his death and possibly something else that was there that day, so his therapist suggests he take a trip to Wales to feel connected to his grandfather. He just wants to be normal, but he discovers that he's anything but.

Keep warm and dry but snuggling into a navy sweater, olive jacket, beige circle scarf, jeans, and brown lace-up boots. Or if you're journeying into a loop, throw on a striped top, distressed jeans, a marble watch, a striped backpack, and grey sneakers. You never know when you might have to do some running from some wights. 

Miss Peregrine -- Emma
Emma (Ella Purnell) is a young woman who has been under the care of Miss Peregrine for a very long time. She and Jacob's grandfather used to write letters to each other, so when she meets Jacob and discovers who he is she's surprised and a bit hurt. In the book, Emma could control fire, but in the movie she can control the weather and must be tethered or she'd float away. 

Reach for cool colors by wearing a printed white dress, a simple bow choker, a blue watch, and gray lace-up boots. Or instead reach for a light blue dress, a fire-y orange scarf, a black belt, and olive booties to mix up both iterations of her character. 

Miss Peregrine
Miss Peregrine -- Miss Peregrine
Miss Peregrine (Eva Green) is the strong headmistress in charge of all of the peculiar children and the loop in which they live. She cares for her charges a lot and will do anything to keep them safe. She's a ymbryne, which means she can turn into a bird at will and controls the loop. 

Miss Peregrine has a cool, dark style, so put on a long, black coat, a navy dress, bird-like earrings, and Victorian-style lace-up boots. Or for something a little more modern, throw on a leather moto jacket, a velvet and lace blue dress, and black heeled booties.

Will you be seeing the movie?

Outfit: A Study in Pink

This is a classic Sara-in-the-fall outfit; the olive jacket, the peplum top, the distressed jeans, the bright shoes, and the crossbody bag. This is a look that I wear year-round, but gravitate towards more during autumn. It has simple layering, fall colors, and it's easy to go from work to weekend. The only thing missing is a colorful scarf!

I borrowed this title from Sherlock Holmes' A Study in Scarlet because I love anything to do with Sherlock. I recommend Brittany Cavallaro's A Study in Charlotte to everyone I meet. It's a Sherlock retelling, which there needs to be more of. The second book isn't coming out until February AND the new season of Sherlock isn't airing until January! I can't wait that long!

Books For Bad Ass Lady Types

If you like reading books about bad ass ladies then this post is for you! If you'd read Lumberjanes than this blog post title might sound a bit familiar because I just couldn't resist. I love a good book with a kiss-ass, flawed heroine who's always herself, uses her smarts and skills to solve problems, doesn't need a boy or girl to save her, and pretty much makes me want to be her. 

These are all books that I've read and enjoyed and which feature one or more awesome girls. If you're not sure where to start, my favorites are Nimona, Cinder, A Study in Charlotte, Pride and Prejudice, Ms. Marvel, and Jane Steele. Have you read any of these books?

 Nimona by Noelle Stevenson (graphic novel, adventure, fantasy)
 Cinder by Marissa Meyer (young adult, fantasy, romance)
 The Winner's Curse by Marie Rutkoski (young adult romance, pseudo-historical)
 Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo (young adult, dark fantasy, adventure)
 A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro (young adult, Sherlock Holmes retelling, romance)
 Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen (classic romance, comedy)
 Ms. Marvel Vol. 1 by G. Willow Wilson and Adrian Alphona (graphic novel, superhero, adventure)
 This Savage Song by V.E. Schwab (young adult, dark urban fantasy)
 Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte (dark classic romance)
 Alive by Scott Sigler (young adult, sci-fi, thrilling adventure)
 The Archived by V.E. Schwab (young adult, dark fantasy)
 The Incredible Adventures of Cinnamon Girl by Melissa Keil (young adult, contemporary, romance)
 Jane Steele by Lyndsay Faye (Jane Eyre retelling, Gothic story, romance)
 Rat Queens Vol. 1 by Kurtis J. Wiebe and Roc Upchurch (graphic novel, fantasy adventure, comedy)

P.S. -- If you like Lumberjanes, you should check out the Lumberjanes x Gotham Academy crossover! It's delightful!

Outfit: Autumn Prints

I could have a whole wardrobe full of purple in all shades (maybe with a bit of black and blue and red thrown in) and be perfectly happy. I mean, that's pretty much what's in my closet anyway! 

Don't you just love a good buy-one-get-one-free deal? I know I do! I got bought this dress at Kmart and got this one for free. I don't shop at Kmart that often, but this was such a fantastic deal that I might have to go back more often.

Get Ready For Fall TV {2016}

TV shows are no longer watched on only traditional stations or televisions anymore (hello Netflix and iPads!), which is great for people who don't have a TV, but bad for people who like to keep up with everything, like me. But since I can't watch everything or I would I would never have time to read or sleep, I'm going to watch the few that interest me the most.

I'm most looking forward to The Crown, Designated Survivor, The Good Place, Falling Water, Luke Cage, Incorporated, Timeless, and Van Helsing. I don't know if I'll stick with all of these, but I'm always willing to give a show an episode or two to woo me. 


Bull stars Michael Weatherly as Dr. Jason Bull in a drama inspired by the early career of Dr. Phil McGraw, the founder of one of the most prolific trial consulting firms of all time. Brilliant, brash and charming, Dr. Bull is the ultimate puppet master as he combines psychology, human intuition and high tech data to learn what makes jurors, attorneys, witnesses and the accused tick. (Premieres September 20 on CBS)

Lawyer and former First Daughter Hayes Morrison (Hayley Atwell) is about to accept a job offered from her sexy nemesis, NY District Attorney Wayne Wallis, to avoid jail time for cocaine possession and avoid hurting her mother's Senate campaign.

Designated Survivor
Tom Kirkman (Keifer Sutherland), a lower-level cabinet member who is suddenly appointed President of the United States after a catastrophic attack on the US Capitol during the State of the Union. Kirkman will struggle to keep the country and his own family from falling apart, while navigating the highly-volatile political arena and while leading the search to find who is responsible for the attack. (Premieres September 21 on ABC)

Adaptation of the Norwegian crime thriller, it's a show that follows a horrific crime story through the unlucky and unlikely eyes of two innocent witnesses. It's a bone chilling thrill ride that not only exposes the details of a crime, but also the secrets of the witnesses who watched. (Premieres October 16 on USA Network)

A disgraced lawyer, now an ambulance chaser, gets a case that could bring him redemption or at least revenge on the firm which expelled him. Starring Billy Bob Thornton, Tania Raymonde, and Molly Parker. (Premieres October 14 on Amazon)

Good Behavior
Letty Raines is a thief and con artist who is always one bad decision from implosion. Fresh out of prison, she's attempting to stay afloat.

Starring Michelle Dockery and Juan Diego Botto. (Premieres November 15 on TNT)

Lethal Weapon
Combining action and drama with friendship and humor, this show reimagines the hit movie franchise, as it follows cop duo Riggs and Murtaugh, who work in modern-day Los Angeles. Grief-stricken ex-Navy SEAL-turned-detective Martin Riggs (Clayne Crawford) moves to California to start over at the LAPD. He’s paired up with Roger Murtaugh (Damon Wayans), who’s just coming back to the job after a near-fatal heart attack. Riggs’ penchant for diving headfirst into the line of fire immediately clashes with Murtaugh’s prudent, by-the-book technique. (Premieres on September 21 on FOX)

Notorious centers on the relationship between charismatic defense attorney Jake Gregorian (Daniel Sunjata) and powerhouse TV producer Julia George (Piper Perabo), as they attempt to control the media, the justice system and ultimately each other. When Jake's clients find themselves in the nation's spotlight, he uses the media to sway public opinion. Meanwhile, Julia, the executive producer of Louise Herrick Live, the number one TV news program in the country, capitalizes on Jake's clients' notoriety. Together, they make great TV and determine the nation's headlines. (Premieres September 22 on ABC)

The dramatic and inspirational story of a young pitcher who becomes the first woman to play Major League Baseball. A beautiful, tough and gifted athlete, Ginny Baker (Kylie Bunbury) is vaulted into instant fame when she’s called up by the San Diego Padres to make her Major League debut. Like any rookie, Ginny must prove herself to her teammates. Foremost among them is Mike Lawson (Mark-Paul Gosselaar), the team’s ruggedly handsome star catcher. (Premieres September 22 on FOX)

Pure Genius
A unique medical drama centered around a young Silicon Valley tech billionaire who builds the ultimate cutting-edge hospital that treats only the most rare and insurmountable medical mysteries—at no cost.

American Housewife
Katie Otto, a confident, unapologetic wife and mother of three, raises her flawed family in the wealthy town of Westport, Connecticut, filled with "perfect" mommies and their "perfect" offspring.

The Good Place
A smart, unique new comedy about what makes a good person.
