October Round-Up and Book of the Month!

October's Book of the Month is The Diviners by Libba Bray 

There was a lot of hype surrounding this book and I’m glad to say it lived up to it! Whilst this is a chunksta of a novel it didn’t feel long at all as I whizzed through it. This is a book that has everything glamour, loveable characters, intrigue and danger I couldn’t get enough and can’t wait for the next book in the series. For more info on the book and more of my thoughts my full review can be found here.



Books Read In October
74.) What’s Left Of Me by Kat Zhang (4*)
75.) The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater (3.5*)
76.) Ten by Gretchen McNeil (4*)
77.) The Diviners by Libba Bray (4.5*)
78.) The Unquiet by Jeannine Garsee (4*)
79.) The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin (4.5*)

Total Books Read = 6 
Thoughts: So I had more books than this on my TBR pile video but considering I didn’t get to read them all I still think I did rather well. In September I only read two books with being ill so this month was me testing the reading waters and getting back into the swing of things. Plus two of them were over 500 page long books so considering all of this I’m pretty chuffed with last months reading!

  6. Oh I love this post Jess! It looks like you had a great reading month! Most of your ratings were 4's and over! :) I agree The Diviners was an amazing book, I was initially worried about the 600 pages, but soon forgot about that! Looks like you have another fab month coming ahead! I can't wait to see what you think of Days of Blood and Starlight and Black City! Enjoy! :)
