October Reading Wrap Up

Time for the next monthly book summary, October was above an average month for my reading again (the art of readthons) so I’m very happy 

October

I read 16 books in October, and a few of those were chunky books so I’m more than happy. Plus I reached my Goodreads reading challenge 2 months early!

1) The Widow of Pale Harbour by Hester Fox ★★★★ I really enjoyed this book, and there were a couple of moments with me loudly exclaiming ‘I KNEW IT!’ – review here

2) Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare ★★★★★ Once again TEAM JEM, I will fight anyone who says Will is better

3) Angel Mage by Garth Nix ★★★★ It’s been years since I read a Garth Nix book and this one just reminded me how much of an amazing author he is – review here

4) Viper by Bex Hogan ★★★★★ I don’t know why it has taken me so long to read this but I’m glad I finally did because it is incredible, also I definately need more pirate books in my life

5) Queen Of Ruin by Tracy Banghart ★★★★★ This was an incredible sequel to Grace And Fury. Brilliantly written and I cried quite a bit at this

6) Gideon The Ninth by Tamsyn Muir ★★★★★ Oh I laughed so much at this book, it may have actually made my favourite books of the year list – review here

7) Undead Girl Gang by Lily Anderson ★★★★ This was the perfect witchy standalone for October, I loved the main character in this and thought the story was written so well – review here

8) The Babysitters Coven by Kate Williams ★★★.5 I really wanted to love this but I was a little disappointed, although not disappointed enough that I don’t want to read book two when it’s released next year – review here

9) A Court Of Frost And Starlight by Sarah J Maas ★★★★★ I can’t believe I’ve finally finished this series! I was really holding off on this one as I was in denial that it was the end and I would have no more new content to read about the Inner Circle, but I got sick of waiting and ended up caving in

10) Pet Sematary by Stephen King ★★★★ I’ve had this book on my shelf for years and never got round to reading it, and funny thing, I still haven’t read that book as I listened to the audiobook for this. It was so creepy and I was not disappointed.

11) The Coldest Girl In Coldtown by Holly Black ★★★★★ It has been a while since I read (and loved) a vamire book. Holly has a way of writing that is absolutely incredible

12) Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman ★★★★ It’s been years since I watched the film for this so I actually went into the book with a fresh view and really enjoyed it. Now I want to re-watch the movie so I can compare

13) Scratchman by Tom Baker ★★★★ I was going to get the physical book for this as the hardback looks amazing, but then I found out that Tom Baker is the one who narates the audiobook so I had to get that instead. The story itself is fantastic, and perfect for a Doctor Who fan, but it’s made even more perfect when you can hear it being told by the Fourth Doctor himself.

14) Charmcaster by Sebastein de Castell ★★★★★ I’m absolutely loving this series, and the narrator on the audiobook really brings the story to life even more. I just want to devour the whole series

15) More Than We Can Tell by Brigid Kemmerer ★★★★★ This book is just as incredible as Letters To The Lost, I love that we get more of Rev’s story in this one, even though it is heartbreaking. Literally I sobbed a lot at this 

16) Frankenstein by Mary Shelley ★★ So turns out this book is not for me, I don’t even know how I managed to get through the audiobook for this

I’m going to take a more chilled approach to November as I’ll be pretty busy, as well as a week long trip to Disneyland Paris, so it will likely go back down to my average, but we shall see
