October ’17 Wrap Up

Wrap Up

I have only managed to read seven books this month (I know seven is still a very good amount but I am usually up around ten to twelve books so seven is a bit slack for me) and, while I haven’t yet reviewed all of them, I will have to motivate myself to get writing.

  2. Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo
  3. Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff
  4. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
  5. Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
  6. Flame in the Mist by Renée Ahdieh
  7. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

  1. Waaa seems like October was a Leigh Bardugo month for your reading. I also finished The Grisha Trilogy this month. I really really like them, but I love Six of Crows duology more. 😍 I hope Red Queen didn’t disappoint you like it did with me. ☹️ Well, I was more like disappointed with the series as it developed. Book one was pretty good.

    1. I liked Six of Crows waaaayyy more than the Grisha Trilogy. I am still upset about the Darkling 😩😩 I thought Red Queen was alright but it definitely wasn’t the best fantasy book I’ve ever read. I’m halfway through Glass Sword and I’m dragging my feet getting through it (Usually it doesn’t take me this long to read something).

      1. Yass, that duology is unbeatable. ❤️ Me too. I was heartbroken when I found out about him. I couldn’t bring myself to completely hate him. 😂 And I’m in love with Nikolai. 😍 I hope you pull through Glass Sword and find the series worth your time. 🎃

  2. Definitely recommending Warcross!
    Moxie is on my TBR as well; so looking forward to reading that one.

    I’m currently reading Because You Love To Hate Me. I’m starting to think that anthologies are quite dangerous. One story I don’t like is bound to ruin the story coming after that? I don’t know; I’ve been having my doubts about it ever since I started reading and I’m only four stories in, haha.
