Can you believe October is over! I can’t with how fast the year is going by, I need a time out for at least a couple of hours. Anyway, the end of the month is here and so is my wrap up. I didn’t read many books like in September, but somehow I was busier in October and I really don’t know why since I’ve been doing the same as before.
Enough of me talking/writing nonsense like always, here are the books I read in October.
Six of Crows duology by Leigh Bardugo.
I was happy to be back in the world of the Grisha and I had a great and exciting time reading these books. However, they didn’t left me feeling as excited as I was with the Shadow and Bone trilogy. I’m still excited for the tv show, tho, and I can’t wait to watch it. I recommend this duology to anyone.
Rating for the series: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️☆
Meet Cute by Helena Hunting
This was a cute love story, not my favorite, but it kept me entertained. What I enjoyed the most was the fact that both principal characters were lawyers and I’m a lawyer, so I could relate a little bit with them in that aspect. This is also a great book for anyone that is looking for something light to read or to get into the romance genre.
The Pledge by Laura Ward & Christine Manzari
The only thing I can say is that this book is not for me. The story was not bad, but I didn’t connect with any character and there were moments where I felt so frustrated towards some of them. Even when I didn’t enjoy this book as much as I had hoped, I still recommend it to anyone that is interested. Not because I didn’t like it, it doesn’t mean you’re not going to like either.
Rating. ⭐️⭐️☆☆☆ (1.5 stars)
Bound by Honor by Cora Reilly
I wanted to read a mafia book for so long and I thought this book was going to satisfy me, but sadly it didn’t. I really didn’t like the female protagonist and the book was very short for my liking, so everything happened so fast and it felt forced to me. Again, I still recommend the book for those of you who want to start reading mafia books, just be aware that this is kind of dark and there are topics such as death and rape that are talked about very openly and without precaution, so read with caution if you think this book will trigger you in some way.
Rating: ⭐️⭐️☆☆☆ (1.5 stars)
That’s all. It was not a very big amount of books, but I’m still happy with how October went in terms of reading. Let’s see if I can read more in November… or maybe less. Tell me, have you read any of these books? How many books did you read in October?
Until the next post!
Happy reading 💙
