September Reads!

Elizabeth is Missing - Emma Healey.
I really enjoyed this, it was about a elderly lady who still lived independently, however her mind was starting to fail her. She confuses something of her present with her past and obsesses over it. But it's not actually about what she thinks it is, it's about something that involved someone of her past who went missing many years ago when she was still young. I read it quite fast but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Messenger of Fear - Michael Grant.
This was about the Messenger of Fear training his new apprentice Messenger of Fear. He teaches her that everybody has to pay for the terrible things they do to people. He shows her some examples of terrible things others have done to people and how he made them pay the price for what they have done. Whilst slowly learning how she became his new apprentice. I, again, thoroughly enjoyed this, I read it very quickly as it's YA and the fonts quite large but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

Me, Earl and the Dying Girl - Jesse Andrews.
As the title kinda gives away, I won't delve into too much as I don't want to give anything away. Just know that I really enjoyed this and definitely need to read it whether you read it before you see the film. Or after. I personally needed tot read it before I saw the film, but that's just me!

The Book Thief - Markus Zusak.
I really really enjoyed this. I've had it ages and only just got round to reading it. But so pleased that I finally did pick it up! 
This was based around Nazi Germany in WW2. Although being fiction to wasn't historical fact. However it was really good and felt real. Especially the little girl we follow who has already suffered such tragedies before ending up with her now papa and mama. It's follows her through her life with her mama and papa and Nazi Germany. It's a fantastic read and I won't say much else as I don't want to ruin it for anyone but I definitely recommend picking it up if you haven't already!
