October saw me getting a little bit back on track, reading 5 books this month, getting me closer to my usual 6. My reads were also a bit all over the place ratings-wise, ranging from a glorious 4.5 to a terrible 2.5. Thems the breaks! November is Sci-Fi Month, an event I always enjoy, and I think I’m going to leave my reads a little flexible! I’ve still got a few reviews I’m behind on, but I want to give some more attention to my backlist/mood reads, so we’ll see where the month takes me.
Great Series Read Project Update
Two sequels read this month, one I quite enjoyed, another not so much. I’ll definitely be keeping going with THE HEROES OF SPIRA series by Dorian Heart, likely sometime in the new year once all the dust (hopefully) settles from my backlog. The SERPENT & DOVE series by Shelby Mahurin, however, might be on the chopping block. After LOVING the first book, I was very disappointed with the sequel, so I may not continue on to the third and final book. We’ll see how my mood feels when the last book drops. November’s sequel read will be dedicated to RECORD OF A SPACEBORN FEW, book three in the WAYFARER’s series by Becky Chambers!
THE INVISIBLE LIFE OF ADDIE LARUE by Victoria Schwab – 4.5/5 Stars
BLACK SUN by Rebecca Roanhorse – 4/5 Stars
BLOOD & HONEY by Shelby Mahurin – 2.5/5 Stars
THE CROSSER’S MAZE by Dorian Hart – 3.5/5 Stars
AURORA RISING by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff 3.5/5 Stars
And that’s what I got to in October! Hope everyone had an appropriately spooky month!
