October Wrap-Up

I hope everyone had a nice October and the best Halloween they could! I can’t really believe this year is nearly over already but seen as there is nothing better to do at the moment, I think it’s time to get ready for Christmas!

I read some great books in October, and I managed to read quite a bit, which was great! I had some time off work and it was so nice to just sit around and read most of the days. My favourite read last month was The Wolf and the Water by Josie Jaffrey. I had a bit of a slow start with it but when it came to the end, I really wanted to there to be more. Luckily there is a sequel coming out which I’m very excited for.

October Books

The Hunting Party by Lucy Foley

The Hunting Party by Lucy Foley was on my tbr pile for ages! I finally got around to reading it last month and I loved it! It’s a great character-driven mystery that you need to read if you are a big fan of mystery & thrillers. Read my full review here.

The Wolf and the Water by Josie Jaffrey

I think this has to be my favourite book of the month and it’s even made it on the list of my favourite books in 2020! I quickly fell in love with Josie Jaffrey’s writing and I can’t wait to read more of her work soon! Read my review for The Wolf and the Water here.

Second Cousins Once Removed by Kenneth L. Toppell

Another blog tour! And I have plenty more in the coming months as well. This one however was not what I was expecting and was not one of my favourite reads this year. I enjoyed the mystery plot of the book but not so much the characters and the humour. If you like mystery & thrillers, maybe you will enjoy it more than I did! Read my full review here.

The Doll Factory by Elizabeth Macneal

I participated in my first buddy read last month for The Doll Factory with my new Book Club and as much as I liked it, I definitely enjoyed reading it more when I had a group to talk about it with weekly.

All I Want for Christmas by Joanna Bolouri

Thank you Quercus Books and Joanna Bolouri for the copy and for my space on the tour for All I Want for Christmas. This was a very funny, heart-warming read and it really got me in the mood for Christmas. If you love romance and Christmas, I highly recommend this book! Read my review here.

November TBR

The Beekeeper of Aleppo

I’ve heard nothing but good things about The Beekeeper of Aleppo and when I mentioned it to my best friend she wanted to read it as well. So, we’ve decided to read it together. I’m a couple of chapter in and already I can’t put it down. Let me know your thoughts on the book!

Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier

This is another buddy read for this month! It really helps discussing the book with others while I’m reading it. I find more time to read when there is day we have set to finish a certain part by. I’ve heard nothing but good things about Rebecca, and I’m always up for a good mystery/thriller!

I don’t have a lot of time this month so, I haven’t really planned what I am going to read in November. If you have any suggestions of some nice easy, enjoyable reads., please let me know!

Great wrap up! The Doll House sounds interesting. I might have to give it a try. Hope you have a good November!
