Hello and welcome to my blog!
I pulled a 10pm till 2am shift last night and let me tell you those are the weirdest hours I’ve ever worked and it’s left me feeling all disorientated with time and space. Although I should be studying for my final round of exams I just can’t get in the concentration studying mood and so I thought I’d talk about My favourite Autumn reads before jumping into Spanish literature.
I’ve done a couple of these seasonal wrap ups at this point and normally I do a list of my top 5 but sadly there’s just not five books that are all on the same level of greatness. I am happy with the three books I’ve chosen to talk about though.
Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
This book was short but impactful. It had me feeling so many different emotions. I just wanted to reach into the book and give Melinda, the main character, a giant hug. This book was written around 20 years ago, I think, and it’s absolutely heartbreaking that this easily could have been set in today’s times.
Trigger Warnings for this book include: rape, sexual assault, depression.
These Witches Don’t Burn by Isabel Sterling
These Witches Don’t Burn was such a fun book! I read this around Halloween and had a great time reading it. This follows Hannah, she’s an elemental witch who’s dealing with her ex-girlfriend, a new crush and the possibility of a blood witch in town who wants to kill her entire coven. Going into this I didn’t realise it was part of a series, I think it’s going to be a duology, but I am so hyped for book 2!
The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw
Another book I read around Halloween time and really enjoyed. I’ve talked about this book a few times before but I loved the atmosphere of this book and the plot. I did guess a major plot point but I was so happy when my prediction came true. Overall I really liked this book and I’m dying tor read Shea Arnshaw’s recent release.
So those are my top 3 books of the past three months. I’m hoping when it comes to the winter version of this book I’ll have a full top five list again. Thanks for reading.
