October Wrap Up & Instagram Giveaway Info!


I apologise for the lack of blog posts throughout October, I’ve really been struggling with my mental health and I didn’t manage to read as much as I hoped as I just couldn’t get into the reading mood and I still can’t at the moment πŸ™

Book Haul

Below is my book haul for October, I’ve gotten quite a lot of books this month (24)

One’s I bought myself were:

  • Impostor by Scott Westerfeld
  • Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor
  • New Moon by Stephanie Meyer (a beautiful collectors edition I didn’t even know these existed!)
  • Escaping From Houdini by Kerri Maniscaclo
  • Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo (collectors edition)
  • What If It’s Us by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera
  • Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J Maas
  • Dry by Neal Shusterman
  • #murdertrending by Gretchen McNeill

Publishers: There was a Hot Key Brunch back in September or beginning of October (I can’t remember) but I wasn’t able to go in the end so someone else went in my stead and the lovely Nikki (insta: @booksandlemonsquash) sent me two books signed and personalised and some goodies which I love so thank you!!!

  • Girl Squad – review book from Quirkbooks
  • Soul Binder by Sebastian De Castell (Hot Key Brunch)
  • To Kill A Kingdom by Alexandra ChristoΒ (Hot Key Brunch)
  • End of Days -I won this on instagram, I never actually entered but my name was commented as the tag a friend option πŸ˜‚

Trading: I did quite a bit of trading throughout October… mainly for Sarah J Maas hardbacks..

  • Crown of Midnight by Sarah J Maas
  • Tower of Dawn by Sarah J Maas
  • Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J Maas
  • Heir of Fire by Sarah J Maas
  • Queen of Shadows by Sarah J Maas
  • Empire of Storms by Sarah J Maas
  • What If It’s Us by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera – arc
  • Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare (the a b s o l u t e gorgeous Waterstones edition)
  • Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo (hardback, stained edges edition these are also gorgeous!)
  • Undead Girl Gang by Lily Anderson – trade

Books Read

I managed to read 9 books throughout October which is small for me compared to the rest of my months, three of the Sarah J Maas books were rereads, I’m trying to get refreshed for Kingdom of Ash

  1. The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstien by Kiersten White β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜† – I really enjoyed this one, was a little slow at times though!
  2. Princess in Practice by Connie Glynn β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… – sequel to Undercover Princess, I loved it, such a cute and quick read for me!
  3. What If It’s Us by Becky Albertalli and Adam SilveraΒ β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… – THIS BOOK WAS JUST PERFECT, I recommend you read it if you haven’t!
  4. Impostors by Scott WesterfeldΒ β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… – My first Scott Westerfeld book! I loved it, such an interesting story and I can’t wait to get my hands on book 2!
  5. Throne of Glass by Sarah J MaasΒ β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… – my reread, I loved it even more than the first time around!
  6. Crown of Midnight by Sarah J MaasΒ β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… – same for this one but a certain death still broke my heart the second time around πŸ™
  7. Escaping From Houdini by Kerri ManiscalcoΒ β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜† (4.5) – I liked this but I hated a certain aspect of it, less Thomas Cresswell, barely any Houdini in this despite it’s name, I hope the fourth one makes up for this one!
  8. Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J MaasΒ β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… – my first time reading Assassin’s Blade, was good and heartbreaking but I really enjoyed the stories
  9. Heir of Fire by Sarah J MaasΒ β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… – again, my reread, I loved it and Manon!
