Sorry that I haven’t kept up with my Halloween week special. I’ve been trying super hard to prepare for NaNoWriMo, which starts tomorrow. So, since it’s the end of October, I decided I would do a big post about the books I got/read in October and the books I want to read in November. Also, there will not be a Currently Reading post up because i’m stil reading City of Bones by Cassandra Clare.
During the month of October, I acquired nine books which is more than I’ve ever got in a month. The reason behind this is the fact that my birthday was in the middle of the month. But, at the beginning of the month, I bought myself Lux: Opposition by Jennifer L. Armentrout. This book is a bind up of the final book in the Lux series and the prequel novella, Shadows. For my birthday, I acquired the other eight books I got this month. My parents bought me Outlander by Diana Gabaldon and The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater. I’ve wanted to read both of these books for a long time and am so excited to finally do so. My grandparents bought me the other six books. I self-consciously freaked out when I saw them. As some of you may already know from one of my previous posts, the books I’m talking about are all of the Mortal Instruments novels.
I finished three books as of now. The first being Lux: Opposition. The second being Lux: Shadows and the third being Wuthering Heights. Starting off with the Lux series, all I can say is that they never let me down.And, let me just say, How beautiful is Daemon on that cover. Pepe Toth was definitely the perfect cover model for this series. For those who don’t know what happens in Shadows, it’s basically the events of Dawson and Bethany. Right before my birthday, I didn’t have anything to read so, I went to my school library and picked up their copy of Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. I was hoping that they had Pride and Prejudice but the only one I found was this one. This book didn’t let me down at all. I loved reading about how much Heathcliff loved Catherine but never showed it.
During November, I’m hoping I’ll be able to finish City of Bones and read all the way until City of Fallen Angels. It’s quite a large TBR for the way this month is turning out so far. Since NaNoWriMo is going on all month, I won’t have much reading time.
