In October, I read a total of 6 books. I’m pretty satisfied with that number, considering that it was a super busy month for me at school and I added another book to my favorite reads of the year! I’m really excited to see what books I’ll get to in November and December because I want to catch up on some fall releases (I’m talking about you, Turtles All the Way Down and Wonder Woman: Warbringer) and finally start my Throne of Glass reread.
The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis | 4.75/5 Stars
They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera | 3.75/5 Stars
Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys | 2.75/5 Stars
I had to read Wide Sargasso Sea for my English class this semester and I’m actually going to be working with the novel for the rest of the semester. Wide Sargasso Sea is sort of a prequel to Jane Eyre, as it tells the backstory of Rochester and his first-wife, Antoinette. I’m not a fan of Jane Eyre and unfortunately, I didn’t enjoy this one too much either.
There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins | 4.5/5 Stars
Bonfire by Krysten Ritter (ARC) | 5/5 Stars
Bonfire was not only my favorite read of the month, but it’s one of my favorite books of the year! I didn’t know too much about Bonfire going in and I admit that I’ve really only seen Krysten Ritter in Confessions of a Shopaholic , but I absolutely loved her debut novel! I’ll have a spoiler-free review of Bonfire on the blog next week!
This Darkness Mine by Mindy McGinnis | 3.5/5 Stars
I managed to read another Mindy McGinnis book this month, and while The Female of the Species is dark, This Darkness Mine goes even further in this psychological thriller. I’ll have a full review up soon.
