What a month. October went by so incredibly slowly for me, and that really showed when I was making this wrap-up. Goodreads always guides me when it comes to seeing what books I read in what month and I was so surprised when I saw what books I had read in October. I could’ve sworn I read some of these ages ago. The beginning of the month feels like ages ago.
I’ve been so incredibly stressed this October. School was a lot, anxiety was a lot, etc. Oh, and speaking of anxiety; I got a new therapist this month! She’s nice and all but I’m not too happy about it since I was basically forced to go from meeting with a therapist once a week to once a month. I mean, it’s good news because that means I’m ‘stable’ but it’s also terrifying.
Anyway, let’s look at the books I read this month!
Dare Mighty Things by Heather Kaczynski (★★★★/5 stars)
Miles Morales by Jason Reynolds (★★★★/5 stars)
Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu (★★★★/5 stars)
Lumberjanes Vol. 7 (★★★★★/5 stars)
Ripped Pages by M. Hollis (★★★★/5 stars)
Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao (★★★★★/5 stars)
De Passievrucht by Karel Glastra van Loon (★★/5 stars)
Familieziek by Adriaan van Dis (★/5 stars)
Nimona by Noelle Stevenson (★★★★★/5 stars)
El Deafo by Cece Bell (★★★★★/5 stars)
When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon (★★★★/5 stars)
Beneath the Sugar Sky by Seanan McGuire (★★★★/5 stars)
Love & Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch (★★★/5 stars)
Dear Martin by Nic Stone (★★★★★/5 stars)
Not If I See You First by Eric Lindstrom (★★★/5 stars)
The Young Elites by Marie Lu (★★★/5 stars)
Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds (★★★★★/5 stars)
Chaotic Good by Whitney Gardner (★★★★/5 stars)
You’re Welcome, Universe by Whitney Gardner (★★★★/5 stars)
I’ve also read a bunch of comics today, namely, Giant Days vol. 2, Misfit City #1, Lumberjanes #29-#36 and Hi-Fi Fight Club #1-#3, and y’all, HI-FI FIGHT CLUB IS SO INCREDIBLY GOOD. The art is great, there’s a kickass girls-fighting-crime squad, the setting is amazing, plus IT’S QUEER. Please pick it up, it’s definitely one of the best things I’ve read in a while.
I’m currently listening to 2 audiobooks: Max Havelaar by Multatuli and If I Ever Get Out of Here by Eric Gansworth. Max Havelaar is probably one of the most famous Dutch works of literature and needless to say, I hate it. I’m reading it for school and I literally have no idea what’s going on. None. If I Ever Get Out of Here is a book I’m reading for National Native American Heritage Month and I can’t say a lot about it so far because I’ve only listened to 20 minutes of it. But I am liking it so far.
I’m kind of cheating by including Love Hate & Other Filters by Samira Ahmed because I haven’t *technically* started it yet, but I’m planning on doing so tonight. And since it’s still the 31st of October while I’m writing this, I thought I’d include it anyway.
As you can see, I had an incredibly good reading month. I hope I’ll be able to continue that in November!
Now, tell me, what was the best book you read in October?
5 gedachtes over “October Wrap-up | SO MANY BOOKS??”
