My first read of October! I’ve read both The Cruel Prince and The Wicked King this year and this trilogy has officially become my favorite. The Lost Sisters gave us a little peek at Taryn’s view of everything that happened in TCP.

The Coldest Girl In Coldtown has got to be the weirdest story book I’ve ever read. I enjoyed it quite a lot but it was still really strange.

One of my favorite reads! I read Vicious the previous month and adored it. I got attached to Victor and Eli all over again in this one. I didnt love the new characters as much as the original one.




Daughter of Smoke and Bone was so much fun! I read Strange the Dreamer earlier this year and it became one of my absolute favorite reads. I had to give Laini Taylor’s other books a try too.

I keep rating every book in this series 5 stars but this one has got to be my favorite. I loved everything about this book.

The Steel Prince was a pretty fun read. Looking forward to the ones to come.




Okay, I’ve seen many readers not like this one but I cant help it. I think I’m biased for this series and nothing is going to change that. I actually enjoyed Empire of Storms despite the fact that it was a bit strange.

Finally caught up with this manga. It just keeps getting weirder and weirder.

I was sent an ARC of this book to review. I truthfully didnt enjoy this one so much. It was too slow for my liking and I was often confused. I did enjoy the last 100 pages or so though.




Another ARC that I was sent. I really enjoyed The Darkest Star! Really interesting plot going on here. Can’t wait for the next book!

The Mara Dyer trilogy is one of my favorites. I got so excited when I found out that Noah was going to be getting his own too. Despite there not being much going on it was still a pretty quick read and I enjoyed it overall.

It took me so long to get to the short novellas of the Shatter Me series. I loved Warner’s point of view so so much!




Truthfully I never really cared about Adam. It was still nice reading this though. Getting a glimpse at how Adam thought and felt throughout the Shatter Me events.

Now Michelle Hodkin is for sure one of my favorite authors ever. I was lucky enough to be sent an ARC of this by Simon and Schuster. I was really really excited to be able to read this. I finished it last night and although I read it in two days it wasnt my favorite. It was clear that so much was going on, and so much is still going to happen. I was just a tad bit confused sometimes. Still pretty excited for the last one!

  2. An amazing October for you indeed! Such a lovely month to read all of those fantastic books. And it brings me joy that you rated Laini’s book a high rating. I’ve been wanting to read them for some time now but I am convinced that I must when I can.

    I hope you’ll have an equally great month of reading for November as well. 😊
