October Wrap-Up + TBR

I’m a sobbing mess when I’m writing this. I need about three tissues per paragraph I write and can’t read a single page without coughing or having to hold back my tears. It is horrible. Having a cold has never been more annoying.

What I read in October

  • Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo ★★★★ — Great start of the trilogy! I am eager to read more of the Grisha Trilogy.
  • A Mortal Song by Megan Crewe ★★★★ — Awesome story about Kami, ghosts and a girl who grew up thinking she was something, and then it turns out she wasn’t.
  • The Light Fantastic by Sarah Combs ★★★★ — Slightly scary and disturbing, will keep you at the edge of your seat the entire time.
  • Holding up the Universe by Jennifer Niven ★★★★★ — AHHH the cuteness!
  • The Last One by Alexandra Oliva ★★★ — Intriguing but a bit slow
  • Timekeeper by Tara Sim ★★★★ — Clock spirits, Victorian England and a gay main character!
  • The Reader by M.K. Harkins ★★☆ — Okay book with a lot of pet peeves.
  • Hold Back The Stars by Katie Khan ★★★★ — Lovely book about two people with 90 minutes of air left. Keep your eyes out for this release!
  • Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen ★★★☆ — Semi-spooky with great characters.
  • Someone Else’s Summer by Rachel Bateman ★★★☆ — Simply a great summer book.
  • Frenched by Melanie ★★ — Sex. There’s just nothing more to say. (Review up soon)
  • Zenn Diagram by Wendy Brant (I have not yet finished this book, but since there is one more day left in October I am determined to finish it tomorrow)

I have a total of 12 books of which 8 ARCs, this has been a crazy month. I first started reading ARCs and I love it! I also started reading a lot.

November’s TBR

Next month I will be starting with buddy reading, and I will finally read some of the books that are waiting for me on my shelves.

  • Infinity by Jus Accardo (ARC from Netgalley)
  • The Wrath & The Dawn by Renee Ahdier (Buddy read together with Megan and Jasmine)
  • Emma by Jane Austen (Buddy read together with Tanya and Debbie)
  • Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan (Buddy read together with Eve and Lucy)

I will probably also read some of the following books:

  • Graceling by Kristin Cashore
  • Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo
  • An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
  • The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski

I look forward to next month! What is your favourite book of the month? Have you read a lot?

  1. So many wonderful books on your list. I have only read The Last One from your October reads. However, like you I ended up reading so many ARCs. I think 9 out 11. I hope that you have a wonderful November and goodluck getting back to your shelved books. Happy reading and enjoy the new month.

    1. No I have not yet read it, I wanted to read the Grisha trilogy first. I haven’t gotten very far in the trilogy so it will probably take a while before I do read it.
