Hey! Taylor here. I thought I would do a quick wrap up of the books I read in the month of October. Overall, I would say it was a pretty successful month of books!
Books I was absolutely OBSESSED with
The Scorch Trials and The Death Cure by James Dashner. HUGE fan of this series. While they played with my emotions the whole time I was reading them, I still could just not put them down.
Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins. 10 stars! okay, that isn't a rating, but let me just go ahead and say I LOVED this book. Even more than Anna!
Looking for Alaska by John Green. Ahhh. I don't even know what it was about this book that got me so excited. I just loved it.
Books I loved
City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare. Wow. This series is so amazing! Totally action packed. Can't wait to continue reading the series!
Books I liked
All These Things I've Done by Gabrielle Zevin. I definitely enjoyed this book, however I just can't rank it with the other books i loved this month. It's classified as Dystopian, however it lacked in the action I often identify with Dystopian novels.
Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken. Now, i know that a ton of people obssesed over and loved this book. And, i truly did enjoy it. However, it just wasn't really the book for me. Sometimes i have trouble really getting into high fantasy and i think that may have been my problem. Definitely worth picking up though!
Books I would skip
Possession by Elana Johnson. Yes, while this book does have a very pretty cover, the story inside just didn't do it for me. I didn't hate it, but it was just a book that I couldn't wait to get through so I could get to other books in my pile. If you want to read it, I would definitely borrow, not buy.
So, there you have it! My favorite and not so favorite books of the month. Leave a comment letting me know what you read so I will know to pick it up for November!
