Reading Recap // October 2017

oct recap

Hey friends! October was a pretty good month for me, but it was REALLY busy.  Luckily, I was still able to do some reading, although not as much as I usually do.

books read

(titles link to Goodreads)

  1. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story // Alexander Freed // ★★★☆☆ // Sci-fi, movie adaptation // Pretty good—I liked being able to see inside the characters’ heads, something you don’t get when watching the movie
  2. Illuminae // Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff // ★★★★☆ // Young adult, sci-fi // Really liked this one!
  3. Quiet Girl in a Noisy World // Debbie Tung // ★★★★.5 // Graphic novel // Soooo relatable. I loved it! I’ll link my review here once I’ve posted it.

I didn’t buy any books in October—that makes two consecutive months without buying books! (Not that buying books is bad, but I really should read the books I already have before buying new ones.) However, I did get a new book from a Little Free Library in my neighborhood—Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. It’s been on my tbr for a while, and it was a lucky coincidence when I found a copy. And as an added bonus, it’s in almost perfect condition!

Some November releases I’m super excited for:

  • Renegades // Marissa Meyer // OMG I CAN’T WAIT!
  • Nightfall // Shannon Messenger // This is one of my favorite series. I’ve been waiting a year for this!
  • Kids Like Us // Hilary Reyl // I’ve heard super great things about this one, including that it has really good autism rep.

  1. Black Dove, White Raven // Elizabeth Wein
  2. Skavenger’s Hunt (arc) // Mike Rich // A bit stressed because I have to have this finished in two weeks because it’s an arc but IT’S OKAY ANNIE IT’S NOT THE END OF THE WORLD
  3. Rules of Rain (arc) // Leah Scheier // Kinda nervous to read this one because I read a semi-negative review by one of my favorite bloggers…I wish I’d read that before requesting. ;( I’ll try and read it with an open mind though.
  4. Love, Hate and Other Filters (arc) // Samira Ahmed // Super excited that I got this one! I wished for it on Netgalley and I was randomly selected to read it.
  5. The Way the Light Bends (arc) // Cordelia Jensen // I loved the author’s previous book, and  can’t wait to read this one!

As you can see, most of my tbr items for November are arcs (advanced reader’s copies). I would love to finish all of these! We’ll see, though…I’m still going to have lots of homework.
