Hi everyone! October is over (seriously, how does time fly so fast?) and we’ve had another month of reading.


In addition to some school books, I’ve also read a few books of my own choosing. I usually read a bit more (and if you follow me on GoodReads, then you’ve seen that my current yearly challenge is at 192) but that’s because I’ve also read a lot of graphic novels this month too. I decided not to include them because this recap would be way too long but if you’re interested in more about comic books, please let me know in the comments and I’ll do a mini-reviews post!

Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds | 
A Line in the Dark by Malinda Lo| | Blog Tour 
Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao|  | Review 
Brooding YA Hero by Carrie DiRisio and illustrated by Linnea Gera | 
The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan | 

I started reading The Hidden Oracle because I’ve actually read most of Riordan’s books, except for his newest series. I decided to pick it up and I’ll probably finish reading all of the newer Riordan books in November! I need to still write my Long Way Down review but I loved it, same with A Line in the Dark  and Brooding YA Hero. I do have my review of Forest of a Thousand Lanterns up if you want to see my thoughts there as well as a guest post by Malinda Lo for the A Line in the Dark blog tour!


Logically I know that October is a month that happened but it feels like I just skipped it entirely because I honestly can’t remember a single thing about it. It’s just a giant haze of work and sleep. Between both of my jobs I’ve had exactly one day off the entire month so I didn’t get to do nearly as much reading as I’d hoped to.
