Books I read in October
Long books make for short lists
- •Six of Crows by Leigh BardugoSince she was on tour with Rainbow Rowell, I thought it would be only polite to read one of her books beforehand. I'm really glad to have discovered her! Six of Crows reminds me a little of Firefly with a group of lovable rogues from an alternate fantasy Amsterdam trying to pull off an impossible heist. Great dialogue, strong characters and lots of clever twists. Trying so hard not to buy the sequel. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
- •Why Not Me? by Mindy KalingThe ebook finally got a price drop after monitoring it regularly for well over a year. I loved her first book but this is so much better and really feels like getting a bunch of gossipy emails. Also I think we can all empathise with that tiny hope of impressing BJ with our writing. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
- •Still reading A Place of Greater Safety by Hilary MantelIt's so long, but I am in love with it. I can't decide whether or not to read a summary of the French Revolution and spoil/prepare myself because I know a lot of these people die violently but I can't remember who or when.
- •Also started reading Equator by Thurston Clarke at jury dutyI didn't want to bring my kindle so actually dug out a real book. His islands book was great and this seems similarly entertaining.
