September Wrap Up

September has been a busy month for myself but a happy one too. I managed to get a fair bit of reading done which I'm pleased about and I'm still ahead of my GR challenge.

New Books
Diablo III: Book of Cain was a birthday gift from my lovely boyfriend, I actually got two copies of Nimona this month (hardcover as a birthday gift from my dad and paperback from a book swap on tumblr) oops, a long time follower on tumblr purchased Mad Max: Fury Road Inspired Artists and The Art of Satoshi Kon (and an ink pen) from my Amazon Wishlist for me - holy cow, and Sketching from the Imagination: Fantasy was a birthday present from my flatmate. So basically I'm super super thankful for all these lovely gifts.
Diablo III: Book of Cain Nimona Mad Max: Fury Road Inspired Artists Deluxe Edition
If you want to check out any of Satoshi Kon's work I highly recommend Perfect Blue, it is my all time favourite anime movie. It took me 5 years to be able to buy a copy because it was always out of stock or unavailable.

I won a signed copy of City in Embers thanks to Black Heart Reviews and they sent some bookmarks and stickets too, and Not After Everything is the book in Augusts box from Lovingly Bookish, it just took me until now to open mine as it was at my house.
City in Embers (Collector, #1) Not After Everything 
The books listed below are freebies that I've picked up throughout September and forgot to add  to my goodreads and posts because my kindle has no internet connection! I can't guarentee any of them are still free but worth checking them out if you're interested in any.
The Tale Of The Vampire Bride (Vampire Bride, #1) One Wilde Night (Immortal Vegas, #0.5) Untamed (Untamed #1) Forgotten
