I've cleared out some ARC's during ARCAugust, I've tried tackling my sequels during Sequel September.. Now it's time to simply focus on my own books, which means.. OWNtober is back, people! Pretty sure this is one of my favorite monthly challenges so far, simply because you get to read whatever you want, as long as you already own the book!
Autumn has arrived! And since I already put up my next seasonal goals, bucket list and TBR, it only makes sense to wrap up the previous one. Which is exactly what I'm going to do!
Although I'm used to writing longer reviews, this is definitely going to be a shorter one. For once, I really left writing it too late and.. apart from the bullet points I wrote down, I honestly don't remember all that much about this story? Which does say something, doesn't it?
The thing that intrigued me most about this novel, is the incorporation of music. I love a musical context in stories - although that doesn't always turn out so great, but still - and that's what made me pick this one up!
Seeing the cover of this book, I immediately knew I was going to love it. I just had to love it - there was no way I would have it disappoint me. So, what I'm basically saying is that this book had a whole lot to live up to without me having read the blurb at that point. I couldn't imagine a story with transgender rep being anything but amazing and I was right! Or, at least I was until I'd finished the book and decided to read some own-voice reviews...
It's time for a first-timer on my blog - A READ-ALONG! And not just any read-along. It by Stephen King is the monster I'll be tackling throughout October. Are you up for the challenge?
Keeping in mind it was my birthday last weekend and I didn't really expect to read an awful lot.. I can say my reading progress surprises even me! And my ARC haul.. same story! What happened?!
Remember way back when, when I said I want to focus on more things than reading and... then I came up with a whole Summer-related post? Well, I quite failed at it - which you'll find out once Summer is officially over - and want to do it again! Hopefully minus the failing this time?
