Hi everyone, I hope you are all having an amazing day and are staying safe. So I had a whole load of grand plans for this October of reading lots of spooky books and watching horror movies however as usual things did not go to plan mostly because I have been spending so much of my free time working. But at least it gave me the wake up call to see that I definitely need to get a better work life balance.
I did however manage to read 6 books however 2 were really short and another I started in September.
Finding Baba Yaga: A Short Novel in Verse by Jane Yolen. This book didn’t really stand out to me other than the fact that I wasn’t expecting the modern aspect of it. I gave it 2 stars.
Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray. This is definitely my favourite book in The Diviners series so far and I kept it at its original rating of 4 stars.
House of Salt and Sorrows by Erin A. Graig. This was such an atmospheric book and while I didn’t quite live up to expectations I still really enjoyed it and gave it 3 stars.
Glassheart by Kathrine Orton. This was such a magical middle grade book and I gave it 3 stars.
To Drink with a Ghost by Amanda Lovelace. I love Amanda’s poetry and this was no exception, I gave it 3 stars.
The Once and Future Witches by Alix E. Harrow. This was definitely my favourite read of the year, so well written and I can’t believe I don’t read more witch books because I love them. I gave this 4.5 stars.
How did your October go?? What was your favourite read of the month?? Have you read any of the above, what did you think of them??
