Welcome to my October Wrap-Up, which is long overdue. I have started a new job, and that has taken up so much of my time that it has been difficult to find the time to post. In any case, in October I read seven books, and liked (almost) all of them. These are the books I read in chronological order.
- Scythe, by Neal Shusterman. I gave this book 5 stars, and I will write a review soon. This is a dystopian/utopian world in which people do not die anymore, and Scythes must glean humans in order to make population sustainable
- Maybe Not, by Colleen Hoover. Apparently, this author is nor really for me. Granted, I knew what I was getting myself into with this New Adult novella, but I still disliked it. I gave it 1/5 stars.
- Morrighan, by Mary E. Pearson. On the other hand, I did like this novella. I finished reading The Remnant Chronicles in September, and it was a good way to conclude the journey. 4/5 stars.
- The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle, by Stuart Turton. I gave this book 5/5 stars, and you can see my review here. This one was both a surprise and easily one of the best books I have read this year. 5/5 stars without a doubt.
- History is All You Left Me, by Adam Silvera. Unfortunately, I disliked this one as well. I thought it was overly dramatic, quite unrealistic, and an unhealthy portrayal of grievance. Review soon to come. 2/5 stars.
- Thunderhead, by Neal Shusterman. A great continuation to Scythe, Thunderhead was just as thought-provoking and well written. The cliffhanger concluding the book definitely makes me want to pick up the third, and I surely will when it will come out. 4/5 stars.
- Long Way Down, by Jason Reynolds. This one was great. Just great. I cannot say much because I don’t want to spoil anything, but it is definitely something everyone should read. 5/5 stars. You can find my review for it here.
These are all the books that I read in October, and now that it is mid-November I am reading other books that I am excited to talk about with you all in my next (soon to come) wrap-up. I cannot believe that 2018 is almost over, and it has been the strangest reading year for me. More to come on this in January.
Until next time,
