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!
I have to admit - I'm seriously late with this review and reading this story. I had some issues with the format - couldn't get the ARC on my Kindle, then it wouldn't open on my computer anymore and.. well.. Let's just say I was so intrigued by the synopsis that I ended up buying a finished copy instead! I couldn't say no to something that sounded like a Cinderella-retelling, but contemporary and with LGBTQIA+ characters. I just couldn't. Was it worth it? Wasn't it? Only one way to find out, folks!
It's been quite a while since I last did one of those and.. well.. even though I don't necessarily do them anymore - the questions kept repeating itself and it simply wasn't any fun writing the posts? - I did feel like answering Liza's questions!
I've mentioned her a couple of times on my blog, and it's time for another one. Chelscey Clayton, author of The Monster of Selkirk-series, is one of the first authors I had a closer connection with. Her book was the first one I won since starting my blog and it claimed a special piece of my heart. Safe to say that when Chelscey recommended Angelfall to me, I had to buy myself a copy! And two months ago now I actually read it as well! The only thing we can do, right now, is hope it's better than the disappointment of Out of the Blue..
It's been an AMAZING reading week - even if I do say so myself. I kicked a ton of books off my TBR - and current reads for that matter, yay me! - and am feeling so motivated to read more, more, more! I cleaned pretty much the entire Sunday as well, which makes for a calm mind now too. Can't help but feel having a clean home helps me staying sane. Especially with my hectic life right now.
I know, I know. Those of you who check the future TTT-prompts might go all "What are you doing?! This is one for next month!" and I realize that. I do. I'm doing this on purpose because I'm planning something different for October, but didn't want to pass on this particular prompt!
I got this eARC through the publisher and was so keen to jump right in. You all know thrillers aren't my usual kind of book to pick up, but.. sometimes I just can't help myself, ha. I guess you could say it's one of those guilty pleasures, in a way? But was it truly a pleasure this time around?
