September 2015 - TBR

So after many many months, I have decided to release my TBR for this month. Hopefully I will be able to stick to it this time, I should have a far amount of free time this month because I'll be in rehearsals most of the time so finally I'll get a large amount of reading done as well as blogging. Anyway time to get back on topic.
I've selected five books to read for this month, I might read them all or I might read some others. Who knows but I am definitely going to try to read them all. A tiny note here is that I won't be reading them in this order, this is simply the order in which I thought 'oh let's read this this month'. So here they are:

1. A Cuckoo's Calling, by Robert Galbraith.
Cormoran Strike, a private investigator, is asked to look into the case of a young model who supposedly committed suicide. Everyone believes the story that this troubled young woman leapt from her balcony, everyone except her brother.

This case is a financial life line for this for this war veteran. But as he delves deeper into the model's world, things begin to get darker than he could ever imagine - and the closer he gets to the truth, the closer he is pushed towards danger.

2. Half Bad, by Sally Green. 
Nathan Bryn is a disgrace to all of his kind and has be locked in a cage since birth. Well, that's what happens when you are the son of a white witch and a black witch. White witches are good whilst black witches are evil. So what sort of person would sixteen year old Nathan be? Other than an abomination.

Nathan's only hope for survival is to track down his father, Marcus the most terrifying and violent witch there ever was, so that he can come into his magical powers.
But how can he find his father when he can trust no one, not his family, not even the girl he loves?

3. The Camelot Code, by Sam Christer.
On a starlit summer night in the Welsh mountains, an old man suddenly awakens as an ancient prophecy begins to unfold. Whilst in America, an antiques dealer lies dying from a fatal stab wound.

From that shop, a priceless Celtic artifact is stolen and it is up to Mitzi Fallon (the lead investigator for the FBI's Historical, Religious and Unsolved Crimes Department) to solve the mystery embedded in the head of the modern US Government. All of which revolves around one question; what if King Arthur was so much more than a myth?

4. All The Wrong Questions: Who Could That Be At This Hour?, by Lemony Snicket. 
In a fading town, far from anyone he knew or trusted, a young Lemony Snicket began his appprenticeship in an organisation nobody knows about. And like the curious person he is, he started to ask questions that he shouldn't have.

Now he is finally ready to tell everyone his story.

5. Skulduggery Pleasant, by Derek Landy.
Stephanie Edgley's uncle, Gordan, was an acclaimed horror writer and was just about to release his latest novel when he suddenly died, which was a shock for everyone (especially him). Gordan, being the strange man that he was, left his royalties and estate to Stephanie and who would believe that this one action would alter the girl's life completely.

It turns out that the things that Gordan had been writing about were not entirely fiction and he has thrown his niece right into it, when a dangerous man appears at what is now Stephanie's estate looking for a key. And her hero turns out to be a wise cracking detective called Skulduggery Pleasant who just so happens to be dead.

Turns out that a dead guy and a twelve year old make a pretty could team who hold the fate of the world in their hands. So no pressure then.

So there we have it, my five TBR books for the month. Four of them are new reads whilst one is an umpteenth reread. I wonder if anyone can figure out which is which?
