September Reading Wrap-up

Unfortunately, I did not read as much as I had hoped. I had a lot of competing priorities, work, continuing education units, meetings, doctors appointments, wedding things, and my Bridal shower. I was out of the house and barely came home to sleep most days. So while I am frustrated I did not read everything I am happy I did get some reading done.

Island of Aeolia– The Lost Scrolls: Earth by Michael Teitelbaum

Toph is my favorite spunky character. I am glad the writers did not hem her in by her disability but allowed her to have a strong personality while using her gifts to often see more than those who are not blind. She is a wonderful foil for Katara and learning more about the earth kingdom is wonderful! 

I look forward to following up with the Rise of Kyoshi. As I feel this manga will give the best look at the earth kingdom when she is not ruled by a tyrant 

Circe prompt 1 and the re-read prompt -Read The Lost Scrolls: Water by Michael Teitelbaum

Katara is fierce, brave, and determined. This book is about her home traditions, which unfortunately we do not see a lot of after the first few episodes in season 1. 

Thrinakia– Goosebumps The werewolf of Fever Swamp by R.L. Stein 

This book was not what I thought it would be, and the twist ending is lovely. I don’t want to spoil anything but if you love Goosebumps please pick up this book and enjoy! 

Phaecia– The Lost Scrolls: Fire by Tom Mason, Dan Danko

Prince Zuko is one of my favorite royals from the last airbender. Don’t judge me ya’all I have a thing for the angst ridden bad boys. (Which probably explains my love for the characters Dean Winchester, Severus Snape, and Sirius Black) Zuko and Iro are the most balanced of the fire nation characters shown in the series. Ozai and Azula are power hungry and insane. Zuko has trauma, and spends as much time finding himself on and off screen as Ang does in this series. 

Ithaca– The Lost Scrolls: Air- by Tom Mason, Dan Danko

I felt this book gave a different window into Ang’s character and all of his lost culture. It was informative but also sad for all that Ang lost because of war. 

Book Swaps 

Troy– FukuFuku: Kitten Tales 1 by Kanata Konami

This is a manga I found for free on my Kindle unlimited subscription. It is an adorable book about the adventures of FukuFuku the kitten. FukuFuku the stray kitten was adopted by an elderly woman in Japan. Her adventures are adorable and remind me of Simon the cat! 
Sirens– Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Lost Adventures by Bryan Konietzko and  Michael Dante DiMartino
The short stories really add to the depth of the Avatar world. Avatar the last Airbender is already very rich in themes and plot but the books really help to understand the character development and their motivations. I look forward to the next ATLA book I pick up!
