I’m skipping Mini-Review Monday because I honestly have had a crazy week and just haven’t had time for anything. I apologize for being absent with liking/commenting on blog post. Anyways!! I am so happy that October is over, can the rest of the year move along as well too? K, thanks.
I only read 2 books lol. I was busy watching Sons of Anarchy.
Don’t mind if I do Jax. (I’m going to get so much
crap for this lol)
On to the books I read in October:
- Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows #2) by Leigh Bardugo ★★★.75
Fantasy, Young Adult
I have not written a review for this book. I just felt really underwhelmed with all of it. That’s the best way to describe my feelings towards this one.
- Gemina (The Illuminae File #2) by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff ★★★★★
SciFi, Young Adult
I have a rave review for Gemina here
So this month I went to New York Comic Con with my brother and met up with my fave/book twin/book soulmate/friend Lilly @ Lair Of Books. We scored so many books!! Lol. I split the book haul into 2 parts. For Vol. 1 click here and for Vol. 2 click here
November TBR (to be read)
I never have a monthly TBR planned out because
A. I’m a mood reader
B. I’m a mood reader
C. I’m a mood reader
HOWEVER!!! This month I have some ARCs and highly anticipated releases that I am definitely going to get too. So let’s get to it =)
- Heartless by Marissa Meyer is a Young Adult Retelling where Marissa Meyer writes a prequel of Alice in Wonderland featuring Queen of Hearts as the main character. We get to meet a sweet girl by the name of Catherine and this is her story. I’m buddy reading this with Lilly since we snagged an ARC copy at Comic Con, if you want to read the full synopsis click here.
- The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid is a Young Adult SciFi novel about engineering beings rather humans, an empire, and rebellion. Which is what I got from the slightly confusing synopsis. I also snagged an ARC of this book at Comic Con and for some reason I thought it released later in November but nope. Ugh!! If you want to read the full synopsis click here.
- Replica by Lauren Oliver is another Young Adult SciFi book, yay to me that I’ve been reading more SciFi lately lol. This book is about clones Lyra and Gemma who do not live near one another at all and all of a sudden things go haywire for both Lyra and Gemma in which makes Gemma go to where Lyra is at. Both girls do not know one another, from what I gathered in the synopsis. If you want to read the full synopsis, click here.
- Midnight Hour (Shadow Falls: After Dark #4) by C.C. Hunter is a Young Adult Paranormal story. I will not be including a brief synopsis because I feel like it would spoil. However, if you like boarding schools, witches, vampires, fairies, werewolves, a mix of everything paranormal then read the first book Born at Midnight =)
And that is it my friends! I hope you all have a lovely November, let me know in the comments if you’ve read any of these books, your thoughts, etc etc..I love to chit chat, it keeps me sane lol. What do you plan on reading this month?
