October Books

I read 40 books this month with an average score of 3.69. 9 were graphic novels and 25 were YA. My most-read genres were fantasy, romance, and contemporary. Fantasy absolutely dominated my books this month. Over half of my books were fantasy.


My favorite books were Rachel Rising: The Shadow of Death - Terry Moore and Not Even Bones  - Rebecca SchaefferRachel Rising was a reread as I plan on finally finishing the series by first rereading the books I did read and then continuing all the way through. Not Even Bones was a dark story with a main character who loved performing dissections on the bodies her mother brought her. I don't think there was a truly good character in the book, and I loved every moment of it. I can't wait to read the sequel.


My least favorite book was The Third Wife - Lisa Jewell. I just didn't like the characters at all.
