And just like that, October is DONE! While I still have some ARCs that I had hoped to get to this month (particularly from my SDCC haul), I’m still somewhat amazed that I got through 6 books, given that I tackled both a 700 and a 600 page book this month. The month started out “okay” in terms of quality, some solid but not spectacular reads, but boy did I close October well! Going into November, it’s Sci-Fi Month! I’m really looking forward to using this blogathon to tackle some backlist reads. Although I hope to keep to my all sci-fi TBR, I might squeeze in one or two other things just to help finish out my review commitments. November is shaping up to be a doozy of a month, given how many things are releasing, so let’s buckle in and get some reading done!
This month, I finished reading THE EMPRESS by S.J. Kincaid, sequel to THE DIABOLIC. I have loved both of these books and cannot wait for the final book in the trilogy! The last book is dated for some time in 2020, so I’m officially caught up on this series for now. I’ve also read THE NAME OF ALL THINGS, second (and latest) book in the A CHORUS OF DRAGONS series. I had mixed feelings about THE RUIN OF KINGS, so I was not prepared for how much I absolutely loved this second book, though a streamlined narrative structure and better female characters certainly helped! I also decided to dive into the DARK GIFTS trilogy by Vic James, which has long been on my list, so I’m in the middle of listening to GILDED CAGE right now.
