And suddenly it’s November. Seriously how did this happen? It feels like it as April two weeks ago!
Either way I read six books, one graphic novel and I DNF-ed a book this month. I actually didn’t I was going to get much read this month due to school and also it seemed to be pretty slow going at first so I’m pretty happy with how I did.
The first book I read this month was The Way I Used To Be by Amber Smith and I loved this book so much. I flew through this reading it in two sittings, if I hadn’t had started it so late at night I’m convinced I could have read it in one. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
A Study In Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro was highly anticipated for me. I’ve been wanting this book since it’s release who knows how many years ago and this month I finally read it and … was immensely disappointed. Me and this book just didn’t mesh well and I will forever be sad. ⭐⭐
I read Sinful Cinderella by Anita Valle in one sitting after randomly finding it on my Kindle and it was actually really entertaining. A really cool and pretty dark twist on such a classic that kept me entertained for an hour. ⭐⭐⭐
I also read The Long Ride Home by Tawni Waters in one night. It had me crying silently by myself at 3am. It follows a girl who’s mother recently died and who also may be pregnant with her best friends baby and she decides a road trip is in order to help her figure things out. I received this off Netgalley and it really blew me away.⭐⭐⭐⭐
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Vol. 1: The Crucible by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Robert Hack (Artist). I read each issue indivually ready to watch the Netflix show and I had a really good time with this and it was creepy enough to get me in the Halloween spirit.
I loved The Iron Trial by Holly Black & Cassandra Clare so much! It was totally random me picking this up but just a couple of chapters in and I was hooked. This very much has a Harry Potter feel to it and I cannot wait to continue on with this series.
The book I DNF-ed this month was Zombies Vs. Unicorns by Holly Black Justine Larbalestier (&OTHERS). This was up on Riveted.com and the title intrigued me however the insides where pretty weird. It was a compilation of stories including either zombies or unicorns and I just found them cheesy and pretty boring which lead me never to pick it up again after 20% until its free-ness had expired.
And the finally book I completed was City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab which was fab and a great way to finish my month.
So yeah, October was a good month for both quantity and quality. It felt so nice to pleasantly surprised by so many books instead of the usual sense of disappointment I’ve been experiencing lately.
Hopefully that continues on into my very busy November.
