October was a pretty crazy month – not just because of blogging every day, but a load of other life stuff happened and reading took a bit of a back seat.
I did read a few things though:
I read D.O.G.S. by M. A. Bennett and loved it – as you probably guessed from my review!
The Girl Who Speaks Bear by Sophie Anderson was a gorgeous MG story that I also reviewed last month. It would make a perfect Christmas gift for anyone aged 8+ though. Lots of snow and adventures!
The last one I finished was The Company Of Eight by Harriet Whitehorn which is the first in a series and I was sent a copy to read before reviewing the second book later in November. Another great MG story with a fabulous female lead – Tori is reading it at the moment and loving it.
And that was it, just the three finished – but I’ve also started the audiobook of Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King and have been reading Stories For Boys Who Dare To Be Different 2 and Goodnight Stories For Rebel Girls with The Smalls.
My total for the year is now at 80 books – a little bit of me is tempted to try and hit 100 by the end of the year but that might be a bit much!
On to November – we are up to Care of Magical Creatures at Smut Club so my three books for that are:
* Book beginning with A: All Fall Down, Sally Nicholls
* Book with less than 300 pages: The Last Circus Tiger, Claire Baker
* Book with a bird on the cover: Lady Raven, Paul Anthony Shortt
As well as those, I’m finally reading Ben Aaronovitch’s Broken Homes and my Darkroom Tours review book The Conspiracy Of Magic, Harriet Whitehorn which is the sequel to The Company Of Eight.
I’m hoping November will be a less crazy month than October and I will get back on the ball with my reading. It has definitely been a good start at least – we all escaped to South Wales for a long weekend and it was the reset button we all needed.
