September 2015 Monthly Reads: Series Catch-Up Edition

For the last few months, I have become swamped with all of the amazing series that I have started!  The amount of books on my TBR is becoming an issue that I want to fix. 

Collages4

So for this month’s monthly selection, I am choosing books from series that I have either started and never gotten the time to go back to (due to my busy reading schedule), series that I had to wait for the next installment to come out, or a series that I have bought but have never been able to pick up quite yet.  These series you are about to see are all books that I have been dying to continue into!  For those that I have started, they have been 4-5 star ratings, so they are all under my top recommended series list!

**You can find my review of the books that are highlighted

A strange collection of curious photographs.A horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive.

  • Percy Jackson is a good kid, but he can’t seem to focus on his schoolwork or control his temper. And lately, being away at boarding school is only getting worse—Percy could have sworn his pre-algebra teacher turned into a monster and tried to kill him. When Percy’s mom finds out, she knows it’s time that he knew the truth about where he came from, and that he go to the one place he’ll be safe. She sends Percy to Camp Half Blood, a summer camp for demigods (on Long Island), where he learns that the father he never knew is Poseidon, God of the Sea. Soon a mystery unfolds and together with his friends—one a satyr and the other the demigod daughter of Athena—Percy sets out on a quest across the United States to reach the gates of the Underworld (located in a recording studio in Hollywood) and prevent a catastrophic war between the gods.

  • Asylum is a thrilling and creepy photo-novel perfect for fans of the New York Times bestseller Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.For sixteen-year-old Dan Crawford, New Hampshire College Prep is more than a summer program—it’s a lifeline.

And not just any asylum—a last resort for the criminally insane.
