October Book Haul + Wrap Up | 2016

Hello, everyone! I sincerely hope your October was enjoyable! I had quite a busy month this October outside of reading. First there was Thanksgiving (Canada has Thanksgiving in October, not November), and then there was my birthday, and then Halloween!

The books I bought and/or downloaded this month were:

  • Fate (Fate, #1) by Elizabeth Reyes
  • Frost Like Night (Snow Like Ashes, #3) by Sara Raasch*
  • Lies My Girlfriend Told Me by Julie Anne Peters*
  • The Boy Most Likely To by Huntley Fitzpartick*
  • Wicked Hungry by Teddy Jacobs**
  • Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco*

So I acquired 6 books this month. That’s crazy! I only thought I’d get a few, like maybe, 3 or 4. Not 6! I think I’m most excited to read Lies My Girlfriend Told Me. I have read it before, but just having a physical copy of the book that I own is great.

I kinda sorta fell into a huuuge book slump this month, so I only got around to read 7-ish books. I can only blame myself, and anime. When I was in the reading slump, I watched so much anime; I’m not even kidding.

The books I read this month were:

  • Infinite (New Soul, #3) by Jodi Meadows
  • The Young Elites (The Young Elites, #1) by Marie Lu
  • Deviants (Dust Chronicles, #1) by Maureen McGowan
  • Burn (The Rephaim, #4) by Paula Weston
  • Firstlife (Everlife, #1) by Gena Showalter
  • Kiss of Frost (Mythos Academy, #2) by Jennifer Estep
  • Dark Frost (Mythos Academy, #3) by Jennifer Estep

The Young Elites has to have been my favourite read this month to be honest! All the other books were good and enjoyable, buuut I have to say that The Young Elites was the most interesting of them all.

The books I’ve reviewed this month are:

If there’s one book review that I think you should check out, it’d be… All of them. I enjoyed all the books that I’ve reviewed this month.

Miscellaneous posts include:

My most popular post this month is ‘Losing Interest in Books‘! Which isn’t really surprising, because of the title. I was surprised though since I never thought that that post would get that many views. So thank you to those who have read the post!

October seems to have been the month where I started 3 series and have worked my way through even more book series. Why aren’t there more stand alone novels out there?! Why haven’t they come my way? If you have any stand alone book recommendations, I’d love to check out any and all books that you recommend!

How was your October? Did you read anything interesting, read anything interesting?

I hope that I get around to finishing a book that I’m currently reading, but I probably won’t. It’s halloween, and it’s time to get spooky!!! And by spooky, I mean sit down and watch some ghost TV shows…

Thanks for reading!
Adele

    It was your birthday month! Yay! I’ve been starting (and finishing) a lot of series too! I’m grappling for standalones too. The most recent one I read was A Darkly Beating Heart, but all the other books I’ve read (or gonna read) are part of a series.
    Is there a specific genre of standalones you’re looking for?
    October was a such a good reading month for me. Lots of fiction and lots of manga! My nerdy self is so happy.

    Here’s to another bookish month!

      Yes! It was my birthday month! 😀 — To be honest, I’d love some fantasy stand alones, or some contemporary stand alones that aren’t very long. Like i’m trying to read a contemporary stand alone right now (I think it’s around 350 pages?) and it’s just….not holding my attention as much as I wanted it to.
      Yaaay, books!
