October Wrap Up & November TBR

 Well that's that. October is over. Scary. Less than two months till Christmas. Ah! But onto books. October was a great reading month. I finished twenty-one books! I so thought that when I was finished with Allegiant I would be left with an everlasting hangover that the rest of the month would be lost. But apparently that was not a problem. Well it was. I'm still emotionally crippled. But I kind of just wanted to not think about what happened, so I kept myself occupied with other books. 
As far as ratings on the books. It was quite a mixed month there. There were a few five stars but also a lot of disappointments. Unfortunately that's just how it goes. So here's what I read this month(it seems I've yet to be home to take an actual picture of the books I read for the month end):

The Dream Thieves(The Raven Cycle #2) by Maggie Stiefvater
The Crown of Embers(Fire and Thorns #2) by Rae Carson
Ultraviolet(Ultraviolet #1) by R.J Anderson
The Bitter Kingdom(Fire and Thorns #3) by Rae Carson
The House of Hades(Heroes of Olympus #4) by Rick Riordan
Substitute Creature(Tales from Lovecraft Middle School #4) by Charles Gilman
Earth(The Book): A Visitor's Guide to the Human Race by Jon Stewart
Escaping Reality(The Secret Life of Amy Bensen #1) by Lisa Renee Jones
Frozen(Heart of Dread #1) by Melissa de la Cruz
Of Poseidon(The Syrena Legacy #1) by Anna Banks
Divergent(Divergent #1) by Veronica Roth
Insurgent(Divergent #2) by Veronica Roth
Free Four(Divergent #1.5) by Veronica Roth
Allegiant(Divergent #3) by Veronica Roth
Allegiant(Divergent #3) by Veronica Roth
The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate
The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black
The Iron Traitor(The Iron Fey:Call of the Forgotten #2) by Julie Kagawa
Bang(Visions #2) by Lisa McMann
Just Listen by Sarah Dessen
The Radleys by Matt Haig

Like I mentioned, there was a few a five stars this month. House of Hades, Iron Traitor, The One and Only Ivan (I'm not counting Divergent, Insurgent and Just listen because they are all re-reads). But there's no contest about my favourite of the month; Allegiant. I loved that book. Satisfying ending to one of my favourite trilogies. Non-spoiler review here.

I'm not really going to have to much of a November TBR. There's a few books for review I need to get to. Plus a few new releases I'm excited for. I also put off reading Never Fade by Alexandra Bracken because I didn't think I could handle it and Allegiant in the same month. So I'll definitely be getting around to it this month. But otherwise, I'll choose depending on my mood. TBR's are hard to stick to. At least for me.

How about you guys? I'm sure there's a lot of Allegiant readers out there. Any other favourites from the month?

Happy reading!



  1. Wow! That was a lot of books you read this month! :D
    My favourite this month definitely had to be The House of Hades. I was actually pretty disappointed with Allegiant.

    1. HoH was fantastic! It's going to be excruciating waiting a year....But on the plus side, no cliffy this time.
