I thought I had one more day to put this together, and here I am scrambling to jumble something together on October 1st. I’m not a bad book blogger, I’m a bad calendar person (who can never remember how to spell it either). My new job and life has made my whole life a bit more stressful so bear with me while I find my brain. Which seems to be leaking out of my nose due to allergies.
I wanted to pick a slightly more obscure title for my favorite book. So I’m going with An Unkindness of Ghosts. The runner ups were The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue, Rebel Seoul, and Autonomous, but there’s so much hype for those books in comparison.
There’s so much diversity, but also nuance and it’s all sorts of heart wrenching. I want more hype about this and more people to read it. Also look at that cover, is it not gorgeous?
Some of my favorite quotes that I wrote: In terms of plot, this book has an inventive and twisty plot that continually shocks you. You always need to be on your toes, and the book, especially as it comes to a close, causes you to fly through the pages. An Unkindness of Ghosts is a must read on so many different levels and needs to be on your reading list for this year. You don’t even need to be a fan of science fiction, as this book is steeped in social issues of injustice that are absolutely worth reading.
So this month I have read a total of 214 out of my goal of 100. This month was a pretty slow reading month for me, 23 books. It felt much slower than it actually was on second look. But to be fair, 5 of those were shorter/novella length! Please don’t hate me. But some highlights were that I finished the Heidi Heilig series, finally read Not Your Sidekick and The Reader. My top books Rebel Seoul, An Unkindness of Ghosts, An Unkindness of Magicians, and Speak Easy Speak Love.
But all in all, this month was full of really great books, more so than other months. I started an internship this month so I’ve had less time to read than normal, but I also commute four hours a day, so there’s that. Because of that I’ve been reading more audiobooks. Currently I’m reading The Shadow Queen and I finished All Rights Reserved.
Currently I’m running an Instagram where you can win, US only, a copy of City of Bones by Casandra Clare. Just go to my Instagram and find the picture to enter!
