October Wrap Up

Another month has come and gone! How does time fly this quickly?

This didn’t feel like the best reading month for me. It felt slow. I wonder if it’s because I read four books on my kindle, and some of them just seemed to go on forever. I just wanted to hold a book.

For the last couple of months I’ve managed to read ten books, but this month I’ve slipped down to nine. Hmmmm, I wonder why? Anyway on to the books

First up was ‘Sword of Kings’ by Bernard Cornwell. This was a great historical fiction in the long running sereies. I enjoyed it, and the time it was set in. Out now! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Second this month I read ‘Find Me’ by André Aciman. I was excited for this book. The writing was absolutely beautiful, but it was a bit of a let down. Out now. ⭐️⭐️⭐️.5

Third was ‘A View Across The Rooftops’ by Susan Kelman. This is a wonderful book. I enjoyed it immensely. I just got lost in the story. So beautiful. Out now. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Then I read ‘Across a Broken Shore’ by Amy Trueblood. This was a good book. Had some aspects that I really enjoyed. But I just needed more. A tad predictable. It needed more depth. Out November 5th. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Up next was ‘Coral’ by Sara Ella. This was a strange one, I spent most of the book not enjoying it. But then a twist happened, and it made it all made sense. I’m still unsure. Out November 12th. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Then I read ‘The Death of Baseball’ by Orlando Ortega-Medina. I don’t even know where to start with this one. I think it missed an opportunity. Great characters, but story lost me a little. I’m still unsure of this one. Out November 29th. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

I finally read ‘Red, White & Royal Blue’ by Casey McQuiston. It’s been on my TBR for so long. A sweet, fun read. With a hot love story, but again predictable. But still so glad I read it. Out now ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

After this I read ‘Moth to a Flame’ by Stig Dagerman. I throughly enjoyed this. It was like a look inside someone’s soul for a short while. Deals with grief beautifully. Intense in a wonderful way. Out now. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Then I read ‘American Dirt’ by Jeanine Cummings. I’ve never read a book so intense from the first page. A wonderful, important story. It deserves to be huge. Out January 21st 2020. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

So that’s it, my month all wrapped up. I hope I can get up to ten again next month. How did you get on this month?

Until the next review

  1. Great reading month. I really disliked Coral. I just felt the main character was only defined by her mental health. Glad you had better experience
