I can’t believe we are already so far into October. I feel like the end of the year always goes by in a blur. So before we get too far into this month I thought I better hurry up and share what I read last month. I read 14 books and DNF’d one. Also, at the end of this post will be my monthly stats.
This was an enjoyable forbidden romance with a dark hero. I really liked the twists in this book and I loved watching Graham open up more and the journey his character goes through. Definitely a sweet romance that gave me all the feels.
Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen
Netgalley Review: The Doll Factory by Elizabeth Macneal
The Year We Fell Down by Sarina Bowen
This was not as good as I remember it being but it was still a fun trashy read. Heaven annoyed me a lot this book because she was naive and judgmental. Obviously terrible stuff happens to her that isn’t her fault but I just liked her a lot more on my previous reads of this book. Although the Lifetime movie of this book is easily way worse than the book.
I really liked the main character, Chloe and her friends but the romance is this book was majorly lacking. The smutty scenes in this book would sometimes happen out of nowhere and there was no build up in those scenes. When things started to get serious between Chloe and her main guy I was honestly shocked because there was no time spent on making the relationship believable or important.
I loved this! Look for my review next Tuesday.
I DNF’d this at 31%. I was so disappointed by this book. It is a young adult but it came across like a middle grade. Or at least it would have if we didn’t have the main characters obsessing over each other when they don’t even know each other. I was so annoyed the little bit I read of this.
This is the sequel to Heaven and I liked this one less than I did the first book in the series. Parts of this were good but for the most part it was blah. The pacing was all over the place and there was a reveal that happened at the end of the book that was pretty disturbing but yet it was normalized and basically pushed under the rug. I do want to continue on with the series just to see how everything ends up but I’m not as into it as I once was.
This is fantastic! I can’t believe that this is Atkinson’s debut novel because it was so well done. She writes such unique stories and I am on a mission to read everything she has written. If you love character driven stories than she is definitely an author you need to check out.
