I’m late! I know! But, as you know, I was on holiday last week so I have the best excuse ever, right? Yes, I do! I really, really needed the time away from everything – packing and life in general – to focus on myself and my boyfriend a bit so you could say I.. enjoyed every second. I also ate way too much but the food was so gooood. And we went swimming! And enjoyed bubble baths! And discovered some fun cities! Yay!
Anyway, time to wrap up October so let’s see how things went!
As always, covers link back to the Goodreads-page! And a new addition: the star-ratings link back to my reviews if I’ve posted them or added one on Goodreads!
Under the Eye of the Clock by Christopher Nolan ~ ★★★★★
The Sun and her Flowers by Rupi Kaur ~ ★★☆
Paranormalcy #1 by Kiersten White ~ ★★★☆
Supernaturally #2 by Kiersten White ~ ★★★
Shiver #1 by Maggie Stiefvater ~ ★★★★
Linger #2 by Maggie Stiefvater ~ ★★★
Forever #3 by Maggie Stiefvater ~ ★★★★
IT by Stephen King ~ ★★
It’s a bit funny how.. after Sequel September, I ended up starting two new series.. And haven’t finished either of them by the end of October too. That does not bode well for my next Sequel September, does it? Good thing I already finished one of the series by now and am on my way to finish the second one too, hah!
As for IT, I’m not even going to talk about that one anymore. Thinking about it and seeing the cover still gets me angry in 0.2 seconds so.. yeah. Ignore.
OTHER BOOKS ON MY OWNED TBR I READ
I succeeded at not picking up any of my 2018-bought books! I’m so proud of myself! Even though I mentioned some books I might pick up in October that weren’t pre-2018, I still managed to stick to my original plan!
ARC’S I READ
The Confectioner’s Guild by Claire Luana ~ ★★★
Empress of All Seasons by Emiko Jean ~ I STILL have to write my review – oops..
Odd One Out by Nic Stone ~ ★★
One New York Christmas by Mandy Baggot ~ Haven’t written my review for this one yet either..
Dinosaurs & Cherry Stems by Susan Jean Ricci ~ ★★☆
Five ARC’s once more! Not bad, not bad at all. The one bad thing is how I haven’t written two of my reviews yet while it’s been.. quite a while since I read Empress of All Seasons. I have to get on top of that one soon..
Total number of books read: 13!
Look at me, behaving like I’m.. not me! Especially since I already read two out of five books I got during October since I read ARC’s of both Girls of Paper and Fire and My Whole Truth. I really, really wanted a finished copy of both so I was thrilled when I found out one would be in a subscription box and the other.. well.. I simply pre-ordered myself a finished copy, hah.
I’m pretty proud of myself this month. We also did a whole lot of packing so.. Even though I didn’t read as much as I thought I would, I still nailed it, ha! Although.. Looking at the ratings I gave, it wasn’t a very good month quality-wise? I don’t know.. Hopefully November will be better.
How was your month? Did you read a lot of books?
