I am a few days late with this post because, well, I totally forgot about it. However, I am pleased to report that October was a fantastic reading month for me! I struggled a little in September, but was able to turn things around this past month. So pleased!
Take a look at what I read and hauled in the month of October.
Books I read
Angel Mage by Garth Nix (review)
Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson (review)
The Sharp Edge of a Snowflake by Sif Sigmarsdóttir
Blood of Assassins by RJ Barker
The Vanishing Stair by Maureen Johnson
One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus
Thornhill by Pam Smy
The ABC Murders by Agatha Christie
Binti by Nnedi Okorafor
The Five: The Untold Lives of the Women Killed by Jack the Ripper by Hallie Rubenhold
Murder in Mesopotamia by Agatha Christie
Day of the Triffids by John Wyndham
Northern Lights by Phillip Pullman
So I read 13 books in October, which is kind of amazing. Most of my reading success is due to audiobooks, which saved me. I also think that switching to some crime books rather than just reading fantasy helped as well! The top book of the month was definitely The Five, which is an amazing nonfiction book that you all should pick up!
Books I bought
War Girls by Tochi Onyebuchi
Binti: The Complete Trilogy by Nnedi Okorafor
A Song for a New Day by Sarah Pinsker
The Thing Itself by Adam Roberts
We Are the Dead by Mike Shackle
I bought all of these during Gollanczfest. I choose to blame Gollancz for my book shopping this month! Otherwise, I wouldn’t have bought a single book in October.
Realm of Ash by Tasha Suri
The Pursuit of William Abbey by Claire North
The Unspoken Name by A. K. Larkwood
Warrior of the Altaii by Robert Jordan
The Infinite Noise by Lauren Shippen
Gamechanger by L. X. Bennett
The Guinevere Deception by Kiersten White
The Sky Weaver by Kristen Ciccarelli
I was blessed by the book post gods this month and received some absolutely amazing books! A huge shout out to Tor Books, who sent the majority of these books including Warrior of the Altaii, one of my most anticipated reads for the year! The book I’m looking forward to most, however, is definitely Realm of Ash!
