Monthly Wrap Up (October)

Another month gone by and more books read. I probably should have planned things a bit better and read some more horror for a change, but that’s an idea for next years post. So far I’ve kept to my review schedule, and hopefully I’ll be able to keep that up. Wish me luck with that anyway!

I had some long reviews this month, mostly because when I like something, I tend to want to go on and on about it. Hopefully some of my readers found them useful at least. Let me know what you guys think!

Prince of Thorns by Mark Lawrence
Series: The Broken Empire Trilogy
Published: August 2, 2011
Rating: 3.5/5

A compelling story with some clever twists and subversions, but too much focus is put on being dark and shocking for my taste. That said, anyone who likes Grimdark fantasy, or revenge stories in general, will probably enjoy this book!

The Strange Case of the Alchemist’s Daughter by Theodora Goss
Series: The Extraordinary Adventures of the Athena Club
Published: June 20, 2017
Rating: 4/5

A wonderful and imaginative retelling of some of literature’s most influential works with an added feminist twist. This is a must read for anyone who admires strong female leads, and enjoys a good twist or two on classic literature.

I’m pretty happy with what I went through this month. Like I said I’m still finding my voice and my style, so a bit more experimentation might be in order. Luckily school will be winding down for me at the end of the year. Hopefully that will translate into more posts, and more books!

My TBR list for November is below. More reviews and other thoughts to come every week (assuming I can keep it up).

Thank you so much for reading!
