I read 10 books and 4 of those were rereads. Overall, it was a pretty solid reading month with my rereads being the standout books. I didn’t get to read any fanfiction this month, but I’ll definitely be rectifying that in November.
So, here are some stats!
Number of pages read:
Number of print books: 7
Number of e-books: 3
Favourite quote of the month:
“[…] sometimes the hardest decisions a person can make most likely lead to the best outcomes.” – It Starts with Us, Colleen Hoover
I haven’t reread HP: The Order of the Phoenix since 2019, but it honestly feels longer since I didn’t remember much. Also, after reading so much Marauders era fanfic, this book hits different as does chapter: The Only One He Ever Feared.
I read this way back in 2017 and I can’t believe I survived this 5 long years without answers. The Lost Metal releases in November and I AM SO HYPED!
Babel, or the Necessity of Violence is a deep dive into colonialism and language. The slower pace may be difficult for some as Kuang digs into the intricacies of language, however the characters’ stories will keep you reading. Four Stars
Love Me continues Shi’s recovery while also developing her relationships. The next book is going to be intense and I can’t wait! Four Stars
A Light in the Ember is an enjoyable sequel that focuses on Nyktos and Sera’s relationship and how it affects the future of this world. Four Stars
It Ends With Us is a hard book to love for several reasons. Read this book if you’re looking for something more. Read this book if you’re looking for a book to change you and make you think. Five Stars
It Starts with Us continues with the theme of breaking the cycle but gives readers more romance elements to sink their teeth into. Four Stars
Player is the perfect guilty pleasure read with a main character who knows what she wants and love interests who will keep you going back for more. Three Stars
Beyond the Wand was everything I was hoping it would be. It’s full of funny anecdotes, insights into Felton’s life before and after Harry Potter, and the realities of mental illness. Four Stars
Mistborn: Secret History hits different after reading all the Cosmere books. Definitely worth rereading if its been awhile. Five Stars
