Happy Halloween! With everyone getting into their spooky costumes and reads, it’s also time for our monthly wrap up!
The Language of Thorns: Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic by Leigh Bardugo
Leigh Bardugo does it again with her mystical short stories that are nothing short of amazing. She continues to provide us tales from the Grishaverse and this is the perfect dark read for Halloween!
Batman: Nightwalker by Marie Lu
I was never a fan of DC Comics but that’s turning around especially after reading Wonder Woman: Warbringer and Batman: Nightwalker! I was lucky enough to be chosen for a blog tour so I was able to read the two books within a short time span.
The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee
I am a huge fan of medieval England and this book fulfilled my craving. Its narrative and historical adventure make it hard to put down!
The Empress by S.J. Kincaid
Again, another ARC copy I was so glad to have received! Kincaid exceeded my expectations when it came to book 2 because I absolutely loved it. It was funny and adventurous and easily snuck its way to my favorites shelf!
They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera
HNGGGGG it was overhyped and not at all interesting. Definitely not for me.
Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills
Shakespeare meets video games, really, what more can you ask for? Mills interweaves these seemingly unrelated topics and makes us fall in love with her characters!
Jek/Hyde by Amy Ross
I had high expectations for this because I love Jekyll and Hyde yet it was a big let down because of the poor execution of the narrative.
Warcross by Marie Lu
I finally jumped in the bandwagon and read Warcross! I was not disappointed because I was able to finish this book in one sitting! Marie Lu continues to blow me away with her wonderful writing.
Roar by Cora Carmack
If I had to describe my perfect book, this would be it. Honestly, I don’t understand why Roar is not hyped up and talked about because Carmack fabricates a great story with exquisite world building. I’ve read this weeks ago and still cannot get myself out of the book slump Roar left me in.
Finishing 9 books in a month doesn’t sound too bad especially when you’re juggling academics and org activities as well! I’m gonna call this month a success for reading.
