Happy November everyone! I hope October was a great - and spooky - month for you and that you're looking forward to the month ahead. October was pretty good for me, since it meant the end of my first year of uni (hooray!) and the start of my *cough* 5 month long holidays. I also read some really good books! And here they are!
1. Uprooted by Naomi Novik (4 stars)
2. Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella (DNF)
3. The Heir by Kiera Cass (3 stars, review)
4. Yes Please by Amy Poehler (4 stars)
5. Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater (5 stars)
6. Lips Touch: Three Times by Laini Taylor (4 stars, review)
7. Cry Blue Murder by Kim Kane and Marion Roberts (3 stars, review)
8. Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff (4.5 stars)
I mostly read Uprooted last month, but it took me a little while to get through. There was so much about it that I really, really loved, but the romance just didn't work for me. My favourite things about it were how much actually happened over the course of the novel and the writing style.
I decided to put down Finding Audrey because of a few reasons. I think it was aimed at an audience a bit younger than me which doesn't usually put me off, but somehow did this time; the mother was super irritating and it might have just been the wrong time for me to read it.
I loved reading Yes Please - it was my first autobiography/memoir and I wasn't expecting to enjoy it as much as I did. Obviously some chapters resonated with me better than others, though.
Blue Lily, Lily Blue is a new favourite of mine. It's the first Raven Cycle book that I have given five stars, but I feel that if I was to go back and reread the first two now they would be 5-star favourites too because I love and appreciate the characters so much more now.
As for Illuminae, I will have my review up sometime this week I hope.
1. Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff
2. Sweet Damage by Rebecca James
3. The Krakow Klub by Philip C. Elrod
4. The Accident Season by Moira Fowley-Doyle
5. Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas
6. Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas
I am currently reading the first three books I mentioned, and The Accident Season is ready for me at the library, I just have to go pick it up. I'm hopefully going to a Sarah J. Maas event this month (yay!) so obviously I have to finish all her books before then. Hopefully I will finish all these this month, but I may have to give up on Stormdancer because it's taking me too long and needs to go back to the library :(
What was your favourite book this month? Did you get up to anything exciting?
