October Wrap Up & November TBR

Hey you...! Let's cut to the chase. October was a bad month, and not only when it comes to reading. I managed to read one book (or more like, I didn't feel like reading more). I didn't even start a second one. That's not what I had intended in the end of September when I planned my TBR-pile for the upcoming month. ... Also, I'm a shitty blogger.

November will for sure get better! (Because I really want to read all the books! Right now!! The end of October killed my reading slump)

September Wrap Up & October TBR

This was not a good reading month at all. I only read two books, and one of them was a graphic novel. So I basically read one book (an arc). I'm so unhappy that I didn't manage to read more in September :(. I guess I can blame it on some kind of reading slump. From here on, it can only get better.

In October I really want to get back on track with my reading!

My Summer Book Haul

In August, I finally treated myself to a couple of new books... 

12 to be exact... (Plus 3 ARCs I received from authors and publishers.) Some of the books I bought myself I found at a marketplace in Spain. The others I order from my FAVE online bookstore, Book Depository (I love Book Depository with almost all my heart).

The books I have read are marked with a star *

From Spain

11.22.63 by Stephen King
I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore *
Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty *
Solitaire by Alice Oseman *
The Honeymoon by Tina Seskis

Book Depository

Saga Volume 1 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples *
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline *
One of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
Caraval by Stephanie Garber

The three ARCs I received:
No Saints in Kansas by Amy Brashear (a physical copy, which I'm currently reading)
Beastly Lights by Theresa Jane (an e-copy)
The Secrets of Islayne by Kari Lynn West (an e-copy)

Have you read any of these books? Did you like them? Which one should I pick up next?

Book Recommendations: Underhyped Books

Book recommendation time! ツ

This time I'll be recommending underhyped books I really like and enjoyed while reading them. Note: None of the books I'll mention did I read recently, so I hope my summaries are at least a little on point. I gave these books either a five or a four-star rating. I think all of them have less than 4 stars on Goodreads, but I'm not too sure (edit: 1 of 6 have over 4 stars). Five books are young adult, the sixth is middle grade. Hope you'll like it!
