Month in Review: October 2015 // Where I Finished Uni For The Year (YAY) But Barely Read (BOO)

month in review done

HOW IS IT NOVEMBER ALREADY?????????? I AM NOT OKAY WITH THIS!

October was a pretty unchill month, and I suspect November will be the same way, I had my end of semester assignments all due one on top of the other, and now I have exams to study for. Because I’m a level 10 procrastinator (level 10 is the highest level you can reach) I’m actually not currently studying like the fiend I should be and instead binge watching That’s 70s Show. I turned it on one day as just something to have in the background and now I’ve pretty much been doing nothing else except watch it for the past 10ish days. 

ONTO THE BOOKS!

I barely read at all this month!!!!! It’s so upsetting!!! I only read 6 books this month! SIX!! I’m not impressed with myself AT ALL! But I gotta say, I may have only read six books this month but majority of these books were brilliant! So there’s that!

4.5 stars

The Gray Wolf Throne (Seven Realms #3) by Cinda Williams Chima – This series is getting so bloody good!! What these two characters have grown into is amazing! I can’t wait to read the last one! (REVIEW)

Cress (The Lunar Chronicles #3) by Marissa Meyer – THIS BOOK. THIS SERIES. Why did I wait so long to read this series?? I do. not. know! I love what this series has grown into and I am so excited for WINTER!!! YAY! (REVIEW)

The One Thing by Marci Lyn Curtis – You Need To Read This Right Now!!!!! OKAY??! Absolutely fantastic! (REVIEW)

4 stars

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell – I was so looking forward to this book and I wasn’t disappointed! This book has everything we love about a Rainbow book, but with a Harry Potter vibe! AS IF THAT DOESN’T SOUND AWESOME! (REVIEW)

Zeroes (Zeroes #1) by Scott Westerfeld, Margo Lanagan & Deborah Biancotti – Such a unique take on a superhero novel! I’m so excited to see where this series is going to go! (REVIEW)

2.5 stars

The Scorpion Rules (Prisoners of Peace #1) by Erin Bow – This wasn’t a bad book per say, it’s just that I had HUGE expectations for this book and it didn’t really deliver. The main character is completely forgettable and the plot feels really confused. The ending, however, really got me excited to see where this series is going. (REVIEW)


Goodreads Reading Challenge: 79/52 (152%) I’m thinking about making my goal for next year 100 books. Sounds massive to me, but since I read so much this year without really trying I think I’ll be able to do it no problem. (P.S. With the new Goodreads update, does anyone know how you now get to that page that has all your read books for the year and the star rating? It looks like a one-it’s-side bar graph? Because for the life of me I couldn’t find it! Thanks.)

Pages read: 2,863 this month | 28,835 this year 

October TBR: 4/10 – Let’s not talk about how much I sucked


What did you read this month? Did we read any of the same books?? Let me know below!

I'm an 20 year old uni student who majors in procrastinating. It's wonderful really - many a great read was read because of it.

  1. So glad you liked The Gray Wolf Throne! I see a lot of people hating on it because it’s slower than the others, but it offered such great insight into the characters. I can’t WAIT to dive into the last installment – as soon as I have time from college stuff. Speaking of college, congrats on finishing uni! 😀

  2. I read Zeroes this month and really liked it! I’m excited to continue on with the series. I’m a little stuck on whether to pick up Carry On or not. I honestly skipped all of the fanfic sections in Fangirl and am worried I’ll be annoyed by the HP parallels. What do you think as someone that’s read it?

  3. You have read some great books this month. I want to get to Seven Realms soon but due to my huge TBR list, I think it’s not going to happen soon. I haven’t read cress yet but I’m planning to read it after winter is released. I’m hearing great things about Zeroes may be I’ll get to it soon.
