OCTUBER WRAP UP

Books I've finished in October
  1. 1.
    The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket
    Read from Scribd# It was alright. Things were a bit too obvious, but I guess for middle grade readers it would be interesting. I do like the idea of these stories and might read more in the future. Maybe. 3 stars.
  2. 2.
    Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone
    Netgalley ARC# I loved this book - I love words and this book is a great demonstration of how important they are. I really loved the way the author handled mental illness, the writing style and the characters. 4.5 stars.
  3. 3.
    Chew volume 1 by John Layman
    graphic novel# Really excited about this first volume - everything I always want in a graphic novel. 5 stars
  4. 4.
    Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan
    audiobook# The audiobook narration of this is one of the best ever. It took me a while to get into the story and I'm still not sure I like either Will Grayson - but I love Tiny Cooper and his musical and want to read the spin off.
  5. 5.
    Five Little Pigs by Agatha Christie
    purchased paperback# Just a classic Poirot book. Couldn't guess the ending as usual... 4 stars
  6. 6.
    The Young Elites by Marie Lu
    purchased hardback# This book was as dark as I wanted it to be. I love Adelina and I loved the epilogue - which introduces a new character that I loved more than all the sad characters. Usually in YA books things will go bad for the main character, but work out in the end in some way. In this book, if you're thinking something is bound to go wrong - it will! If you've always wanted a story from the villain's perspective like I did - go read this. 4.5 stars
  7. 7.
    The Assassin's Blade by Sarah J Maas
    read from scribd# I actually liked this novellas more than the first two books. What even. Definitely in this series bandwagon now though. Give me more Celaena!! 4.5 stars.
  8. 8.
    Doll Bones by Holly Black
    read from scribd# really liked it! it was a creepy middle grade adventure. Simple and fun. 4 stars.
  9. 9.
    Chew vol 2 by John Layman
    graphic novel# This series rocks! 5 stars.
  10. 10.
    Love, Lattes and Mutants by Sandra Cox
    read from scribd# Not totally unreadable, but meh. The mutant plot was kind of cool but it took way too long to start. Also much insta love and love triangles. 2 stars
  11. 11.
    Dark Places by Gillian Flynn
    audiobook# The narration was a bit slow, but this was a great book and a very haunting mystery. 4 stars.
  12. 12.
    Copperhead by Jay Faerber
    graphic novel# nothing special. 3 stars
  13. 13.
    Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld
    kindle ebook# I was really bored with this at first. Eventually it got more interesting, but I just don't really like war related stories. Also the plot in this was all over the place and very dependent on having a second book in the series. The worldbuilding is really great but I don't think I will continue on with the series. 3 stars.
  14. 14.
    I've got your number by Sophie Kinsella
    audiobook# Really fun and rom com type of story. 4 stars
  15. 15.
    Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
    purchased hardcover# I don't even know what to do with my life after this book. Probably my favorite of the year. Love Baz. Love Simon and Baz. I need more gay wizards in my life. 5 glorious stars.
  16. 16.
    Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman
    Amazing. My favorite Neil Gaiman that I've read so far. I love the weird, slightly creepy way of his stories. 5 stars
