It's been a busy few months, to say the least. So busy, in fact, that I've hardly had any time to read at all. It SUCKS. Since I only got the chance to read seven full books (and the last halves of two others) across both October and November I decided to just put them all in one wrap up now.
This post is a total mess, sorry! I just wanted to get everything wrapped up so I could move into December without worrying about it. Anyway, here are all the books I read over the past few months...
STARTED IN SEPTEMBER:
This book was really weird and fascinating and unique and creepy and I'm still not completely sure what I thought of it. I definitely couldn't put it down, though! FULL REVIEW. 3/5 STARS
FIRE WALKER - JOSEPHINE ANGELINI: This is the second book in Josphine Angelini's Dream Walker series, and I really enjoyed it. I think the magic system's really interesting, I like the characters, and even though it might not be the most brilliantly written series ever I'm really looking forwards to the next book! 4/5 STARS
DEWEY'S 24 HOUR READATHON:
In October I took part in Dewey's 24 hour readathon and I managed to read three books. Since I already talked about all of them in my wrap up I'm not going to go over it all again, but they were;
- You're never weird on the internet - Felicia Day (LOVED IT) 4.5/5 STARS
- Dynamite - Ranvinder Randhawa 2/5 STARS
- The fall of Icarus - Ovid 3/5 STARS
READ IN OCTOBER/NOVEMBER:
CARRY ON - RAINBOW ROWELL: THIS BOOK. I CAN'T EVEN. HOW IS RAINBOW ROWELL EVEN DOING THIS? If you can't tell, I loved it and Rainbow Rowell is Queen and I still haven't managed to gather my emotions. Just read it, especially if you love all of her books as much as I do. 4.85/5 STARS
MAGNUS CHASE AND THE SWORD OF SUMMER - RICK RIORDAN: Just like Rainbow Rowell, Rick Riordan is still yet to disappoint me. This book was hilarious and coming action packed and I need the next installment in the series IMMEDIATELY. Sure, it's a lot like Rick Riordan's other books, but since I love his writing so much that really didn't bother me. 4.5/5 STARS
THE REST OF US JUST LIVE HERE - PATRICK NESS: I loved this one too! It's a really unique and funny take on the young adult paranormal story, but there were also some much deeper themes and relationships which I thought made it really stand out. 4.25/5 STARS.
MONSTER - C.J. SKUSE: Boarding school! Female friendships! Murder! This book contained loads of things I loved, and overall it was a really intriguing and atmospheric read which I really enjoyed. 4.25/5 STARS.
I might not have read much in the past few months, but I have been lucky enough to read some of my favourite books of the year! Still, I'm hoping to read a lot more in December now that my life *should* be less insane.
Thanks for reading, and have a great December...
