October 2020 Wrap Up

I’m baaacccckkkk with the only post that you seem to get from me nowadays. It’s not that I don’t have reviews written. I do! I’m just terrible at actually typing them up into something that is coherent and then posting them. I need an assistant who’ll take my handwritten sticky note reviews and will put them together for me. That would be nice.

I did really well this month reading wise! So I’m extremely proud of myself. I read a total of 8 books and the majority of them have quickly become new favorites of mine.

Without further ado here are all the books I read in October!

Ninth House (Alex Stern #1)

Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo: ★★★★

This was such a fun read for October and I’m so glad I read it in the spooky month. I listened to the audiobook and while the beginning was a little slow, it picked up eventually and soon I was falling in love with the characters. I need the second book ASAP.

The Rage of Dragons (The Burning, #1)

The Rage of Dragons by Evan Winter: ★★★★

This book was so good and I don’t know why more people aren’t talking about it!!! It’s such an intense and amazing fantasy. The second book comes out soon and I can’t wait to dive into it.

The Bone Season (The Bone Season, #1)

The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon: ★★★

I really wanted to like this book and I did, just not as much as I had hoped to. I still want to continue with rest of the series and I’m hoping that as I continue reading I’ll like it more!

October 2019 Wrap Up

I didn’t read as much this month as I did last month but it was still a good reading month for me as I enjoyed most of the books that I read. I changed my reading goal to 50 and I’m currently at 43 books. I’m hoping that I can actually complete this new reading challenge but I’m not too confident.

Mooncakes

Mooncakes by Wendy Xu & Suzanne Walker: ★★★

I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley and I really enjoyed. I thought it was cute and the art was absolutely gorgeous. I want to pick up a finished copy so I can see it even better. You can find a full review here.

Yes No Maybe So

Yes No Maybe So by Becky Albertalli & Aisha Saeed: ★★★

I received an ARC of this from Edelweiss. It doesn’t come out until February but I was in a contemporary mood so I decided to give it a chance. It was okay. There were some parts I enjoyed and some parts I didn’t. A full review will be up next week.
