Monthly Wrap-Up || October 2018

October was one of those months were I read more books than I thought possible. 15 books total! Looking back it was a mish mash of genres as usual with a streak of chick-lit at the end. Average rating was 3.9 stars with a total of 5199 pages.

On a personal note I started an additional part time job to my full time job so reviews will be a bit later than my usual posting, so looking out for reviews on these this month! I’ll make sure to link them at the end in the November post for anything posted from the October reads. Ps. that second job is at a bookstore so if anyone in the Kitchener-Waterloo area is in need of some reads come visit me! We shall find you what you need at Indigo ūüôā

¬†My top top mentions have to be…
The Cold Is In Her Bones || a medusa inspired story, finally
Girl, Wash Your Face || self-help book that will resonate with women of any age
Slayer || for all the Buffy The Vampire Slayer fans
Rebecca || the classic I never knew I needed in my life
Muse of Nightmares || Laini Taylor breathes life into words
Broken Things || a mystery/thriller perfect for October/November
One Day In December || really cute chick-lit for the winter holidays

  3. 15 books?! That’s amazing! I am so glad you loved Rebecca. A long while back I listened to the audiobook and loved it — but then I realized during that it was the abridged version, so I have to go back and listen to the full thing one of these days. It’s so dramatic!

    1. She really wrote beyond her time. It’s so good!
