I read a great amount of books this month and all of them I really enjoyed! Since NaNoWriMo is finally a go, I might not get as much reading done so I’m glad I read all these books before my numbers begin to decline…Anyways, here is my October 2016 Wrap Up!
Just Listen by Sarah Dessen – Just Listen follows a girl named Annabel who is believed to have “everything” but that is until the new year starts and she is alone with no friends, that is, until she meets Owen, a mysteriously quiet boy who helps Annabel in her dark times. I really enjoyed Just Listen by Sarah Dessen, it was really fast paced and easy and I flew through it. There were times were the main character was very frustrating but other than it was just a really fun contemporary read! 4/5 stars
Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen – This book follows Auden, an insomniac who is staying at her dad’s for the summer. Throughout this summer, Auden gets a job, makes some friends and meets a mysterious and damaged boy named Eli. I also liked this book but sometimes I felt like the characters were very plain and nothing really stuck out about them. Apart from that though, I flipped through this quickly and it definitely satisified my contemporary need! 4/5
The Book of Lost Things by John Conolly – I had to read this book for my English class and let me tell you, it was definitely one of the better books I’ve had to read for school. This books follows a young boy named David who after the death of his mother, turns to books for comfort. One day he finds himself in a land of twisted fairy tales and he goes on a journey to get out. It was a very dark novel but I actually enjoyed it quite a bit. 3/5 stars
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by JK Rowling – It was so amazing reading this book again because it is my favourite book in the Harry Potter series! It was so good and I cannot wait to continue on with Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (another favourite of mine). It is really fun following Harry as he tries to survive the Triwizard Tournament and I also just really enjoy reading about the tasks. 5/5 stars
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han – Oh my goodness, this book was so fantastic that I couldn’t put it down! I really love reading contemporaries and while all of them are pretty good, there are some that just make me feel super warm and fuzzy inside and this book definitely did that. This book follows Lara Jean, a quiet girl who writes letters to all the boy she has loved before. But when they one day get out and are sent to each boy, she quickly makes up a fake relationship with a boy at her school but it turns into something much more. I also cannot wait for the 3rd book which comes out April 4th of next year! 5/5 stars
P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han – This is the 2nd book in the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy and I am so happy to say that I loved it just as much as the first book! I really enjoy reading Jenny Han’s books because her writing style is very fun and easy and just flows really nicely. I love how she portrays the relationship in this novel because it is just a complete rollercoaster and it really hit me in the feels! 5/5 stars
Those are all the books I read this month and I am very satisfied with all the books I read and cannot wait to read some more this month! Don’t forget to comment below any books you read this month and what you have planned to read this month because I would love to know 🙂
