If you want a kick in the feels, have a heart for cats and feel like reading about a cat owner's unique journey of finding his beloved master a new servant.. This is one for you!
Better late than never so.. Here's my October / #OWNtober wrap up! I read a decent amount of books, although some of them were quite disappointing, and ended up getting only sub box books and pre-orders, yay!
At the start of the year, I read Dear Martin by Nic Stone and rated it 4,5 cupcakes so you can say I was quite excited to hear about her new novel. Not to mention there'd be queer characters. I was sold, needed it, requested it and.. by some amazing miracle actually got my hands on an eARC?! And then I finished it and it all came crashing down.
September was a hard month to get through. Deadlines at work, a whole lot of stuff happening in my personal life.. Yet somehow.. I still managed to make this one of my best reading months this year! Not only looking at numbers, but most definitely looking at my own Sequel September-challenge. I read a ton of sequels and I'm so proud of myself!
When I first heard of this book, I was intrigued immediately. It sounded like something I would pick up but.. on the other hand, it also sounded like something I wouldn't pick up - if you get what I mean. The LGBTQIA+ part of this novel immediately spoke to me, but I wasn't really sure about the homophobic impression I got from the blurb. I'm glad I ended up requesting this ARC anyway because.. I don't regret reading The Lion Tamer Who Lost one bit!
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?
You all know by now how hectic my life has been lately. If you've missed it - where have you been?! - you can just check out this post? I guess? Anyway! August was all about getting my N.E.W.T.'s and reading some ARC's, so that's exactly what I did reading-wise.
