October 2018 TBR!

Hey guys! I can’t believe it’s October already! I’m so excited for Halloween and also because we are that little bit closer to Christmas! But I am really excited for Halloween because I love it so much. I’ve tried to pick what I hope are some creepy books to get me in the mood for this spooky month! Here’s what I’d like to read:

Strange Ink by Gary Kemble: As soon as I saw this book I just knew I had to read it. It looks and sounds amazing, and it has black sprayed edges! It just screams horror at me and I really hope it doesn’t disappoint! It looks like a book that is going to be really creepy and shocking… I’m so excited I can finally start reading it!

Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco: I have been saving this book especially for October because it just screams Halloween! Everyone has been telling me to read this so I have really high hopes for it! I think it also includes photographs and I really liked that when I was reading Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children.

September 2018 Wrap Up!

Hey guys! Today I am bringing you my September wrap up! I read seven books this month which is a decent amount but I am a bit disappointed with myself as I wanted to read more. I went on holiday for two weeks and read 5 books which I think is OK but I wanted to read six, oh well! Here’s what I read this month:

The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater: I finally read The Raven Cycle! I really liked it and it lived up to the hype but I wouldn’t say it’s a series I’m obsessed with. There was lots of surprises along the way and I loved the characters, especially Gansey. But there was some things I couldn’t wrap my head around because it felt like they literally came out of nowhere. Aside from that, I think this is the best series Maggie’s written and I’m looking forward to this trilogy she’s writing for Ronan. He was definitely the most interesting character and it feels right that he’s getting his own series.
