Reading Wrap-Up: October 2017

 

I’ve had a long, long month. It’s been dragging on for longer than it should. Since school has basically killed my entire reading time, I could read only a few books.

How did last month work for you? What did you love reading? Let’s talk in the comments section.

 

 

Genesis by Collin Piprell

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Collin certainly knows how to write a great science fiction. I liked reading the first instalment, but I thoroughly enjoyed the sequel. He turns this genre upside down, then magically transforms it into something you didn’t know you’d read. I can’t wait until the third book!

The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️½

I have never read such a beautiful book as this one. I cannot get over it. Leigh throws in new twists into our beloved fairytales, like Hansel and Gretel and the Nutcracker, then sprinkles in some Grishaverse into the mix. And the illustrator, Sara Kipin, just brings these beautifully told stories to life. If you’re a Grisha fan or a Six of Crows one, pick up this book. You’ll cherish it, for sure.

Haven by Mary Lindsey

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I wasn’t sure how I’d like Haven. Werewolves and witches? Same old, I guess. Wrong. Mary brings a twist to the long-drawn-out storyline, and I enjoyed every second of it. I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of political play, romance, and backstory that’s in the book, but I certainly loved reading it! I’d definitely recommend the book to any reader who’s looking for something new in fantasy.

The Great and the Small by A. T. Balsara

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Killer rats, plague rats, conflicted rats, and conflicted humans. What more can you ask for? Illustrations. This book offers much more than just a story. I’m glad I signed up for this tour. And I’m also thrilled to support another Canadian author. Here’s my review.
