It is October already! Time flies by! Today I am giving you a wrap-up about the book I read in September and the books I am planning to read in October!
In September I read a total of four books, I got into a bit of a slump, which caused me to read less books that I wanted.
- Say Her Name – James Dawson
This book was the first one I read this month. It was also on my TBR, yay! I read it for Halloween. It was a book I had trouble reading the first time I tried it, but this time I got through it. I ended up really enjoying it, and the plot twist definitely had me there! I ended up giving it 3 out of 5 stars.
- The Siren Chronicles – Douglas J. Sloan [review copy]
This book I read for a blog tour! So there was some pressure reading this one, but I finished it way ahead of time. It was different than I expected it to be, but I did enjoyed it. My review is already live (click here) and I ended up giving it 3 out of 5 stars.
And here the reading slump kicked in. I had so much trouble with reading any book!
At that point I bought The Orphan Queen. I got it with a 50% discount, and I wanted it so badly! I immediately started that one, and it got me out of my slump!
- The Orphan Queen – Jodi Meadows
I loved this book so so much. I never expected to love it so much, but I did. And I feel so bad for not picking it up earlier. There just were some many twists, and I really need the sequel! I ended up giving it 5 out of 5 stars!
- Melody’s Key – Dallas Coryell [review copy]
And last, but not least, I read Melody’s Key. It is a YA romance, and I wasn’t sure wether I wanted to read it. I am not a big fan of romance, but was willing to give this one a go! And I am so happy I agreed! I highly enjoyed it and my review is already op (click here). I ended up giving it 4 out of 5 stars.
I was actually planning to read quite a few books this month, but so far I am stuck with reading Mr. Mercedes. It takes quite a long time, but I really want to finish a Stephen King book! So far I haven’t read any of his books. One time I started in 11.22.63 but at some point I just stopped? I still don’t know why. But so far I am really enjoying Mr. Mercedes, even it is going to be the only book I am going to finish this month!
But it wasn’t the only book I was planning on reading this month, these are all the books that are on my TBR:
- Flame in the Mist – Renee Adhieh (buddyread!)
- Where Creatures Hide – Parehuia Shepard [review copy]
- The Company of Wolves – Cory Barclay [review copy]
- Zarox – Kouis Smith [review copy]
So yeah, quite a few reading copies! I never thought I would get any review copies, so I love the ones I get! I know two copies aren’t very big (not larger than 200 pages) so I do hope I get to at least one this month!
What books are you planning on reading?
