It took me the first week or so of October to get my reading groove on. Even as a a mostly remote graduate student, October is the craziest month of the fall semester and things got busier in my work life as well. I decided to mostly return back to contemporary romance reads and that was the best decision I could’ve made because all I wanted to do was READ during whatever free time I had. I also found myself in a bit of a TV rut this month, which I actually didn’t mind too much because I was so happy to be reading. There are a few upcoming TV shows and movies I can’t wait to check out over the next few weeks.
I did enjoy Bookish and the Beast, but I can already tell it’s going to unfortunately be a not-so memorable read. I can’t tell if I read Bookish and the Beast at the wrong time or it just wasn’t the right book for me, but I just wasn’t too into it.
Those Who Prey by Jennifer Moffett (ARC) | 3.5/5
I do enjoy a good thriller or two in November and October, which led me to Jennifer Moffett’s upcoming Those Who Prey. This was another it was a nice read to decompress with after a long day of being on screens, but the story ended up being a little overwhelming.
Well Played (Well Met #2) by Jen DeLuca | 5/5
Well Played was the book that turned my October reading around because I LOVED this Well Met sequel so much.
Lock Every Door by Riley Sager | 4/5
I feel like I was one of the few in my book blogging circle that hadn’t read a Riley Sager book before, and in the spirit of thriller reading season for the fall, I picked up Lock Every Door and enjoyed it!Read More »
