Monthly Wrap-Up | October 2018

Hello everyone!

Welcome to my October 2018 wrap-up. I hope everyone had a stellar reading month and a spooky halloween. This month I read ten books and one novella. Almost all the books I read were either four or five stars, so it’s safe to say I have a fantastic reading month!

As usual, I feature my top two books of the month from differing genres. However, this month my two favourite books are both from the same genre. #SorryNotSorry

 

Best Books of the Month 1

the black prism

 

The Black Prism is a phenomenal novel that I would recommend to anyone. It’s full of great characters, an exciting plot that will keep you on the edge of your seat, and a magic system that will dazzle your imagination.

 

 

 

 

 

wrath of empire

Wrath of Empire is the second novel in the Gods of Blood and Powder series. I read this 639-page book in three days. I was so obsessed with it that it put me in a book hangover. I’m desperate to find out what happens next and spend more time with these characters. Check out these two books if you’re looking for a fantasy series that will capture your attention and refuse to let it go.

 

 

 

everything else 1

 

Legion: The Many Lives of Stephen Leeds is another work of Sanderson’s you can point to to showcase his incredible writing ability. With characters that jump off the pages and plots to rival some of the best science fiction writers, Legion with leave you clamouring for more. 5 star

 

Kings of the Wyld is a rock and roll kind of fantasy novel that just didn’t work for me. I loved the characters, but not much else. 3 star

 

Shacking Up is another novel in a long line of novels Hunting can call upon to demonstrate her skill as a romance writer. 4star_Fotor

 

Bad Mommy is fantastic novel if you’re looking to get into the headspace of a sociopath and psychopath. Everything about this book is disturbing as Fisher takes her readers on a journey through the minds of people you hope you never meet. 5 star

 

The Good Luck Charm is a steamy sports romance if you’re willing to overlook a few problematic moments. 3 star

 

How I wish I read The Lost Sisters immediately after finishing The Cruel Prince. I had a bit of trouble remembering what happened in The Cruel Prince, so this novella, or apology letter, if you will, didn’t resonate as strongly as it could have for me. 4star_Fotor

 

Surviving Ice is a fun and steamy romance with an edgier plot. 4star_Fotor

 

Everything about From Here to You is just annoying. The characters, plot, and romance are all cringe and eye roll worthy. two star

 
I went into Red Sister expecting to love it unconditionally. I’ve read countless reviews from people with similar tastes as my own praising every aspect of Red Sister. So, when I got about halfway through and didn’t love it like everyone else I was surprised and confused. 4star_Fotor

 

Have you read any of these books? What did you think? What was your favourite book of October?

  1. I’m so curious about The Lost Sisters, k need to get ahold of it before The Wicked King comes out. Sounds like you had a pretty good month😊
