October was a little bit of a terrible reading month for me as University seemed to take over everything that I did. I did manage to read a couple of books, but not as many as normal. I am hoping to pick reading back up as I have missed it, but I will keep you all updated throughout the month. But I do have four books that I managed to read, so here are my mini reviews for them!Carry On Reading
I haven’t been reading as much as I want to at the moment, but I hope this is just down to me settling back into University rather than a slump coming on. Fingers crossed I am going to be able to get some of my reading mojo back again. When it comes to reading plans for November I don’t really have that many as I am trying to let myself mood read rather than forcing myself to read something. But I do have a couple of books that I would love to fit in!
Without further ado, here are some of the books I am going to try and read in November!
A Dance with a Fae Prince by Elise Kova
Katria swore she’d never fall in love. She’s seen what “love” means through the cruelty of her family. So when she’s married off to the mysterious Lord Fenwood for a handsome price, all Katria wants is a better life than the one she’s leaving. Feelings are off the table.
But her new husband makes not falling in love difficult.
As their attraction begins to grow, so too do the oddities within her new life: strange rules, screams in the night, and attacks by fae that Katria never thought were real. When she witnesses a ritual not meant for human eyes, Katria finds herself spirited away to the land of Midscape.
Surviving the fae wilds as a human is hard enough. Katria must survive as a human who accidently pilfered the magic of ancient kings – magic a bloodthirsty king is ready to kill her for in order to keep his stolen throne – and her new husband is the rightful heir in hiding.
The power to save the fae is in her hands. But who will save her from a love she vowed never to feel?
The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood
As a third-year Ph.D. candidate, Olive Smith doesn’t believe in lasting romantic relationships–but her best friend does, and that’s what got her into this situation. Convincing Anh that Olive is dating and well on her way to a happily ever after was always going to take more than hand-wavy Jedi mind tricks: Scientists require proof. So, like any self-respecting biologist, Olive panics and kisses the first man she sees.
That man is none other than Adam Carlsen, a young hotshot professor–and well-known ass. Which is why Olive is positively floored when Stanford’s reigning lab tyrant agrees to keep her charade a secret and be her fake boyfriend. But when a big science conference goes haywire, putting Olive’s career on the Bunsen burner, Adam surprises her again with his unyielding support and even more unyielding…six-pack abs.
Suddenly their little experiment feels dangerously close to combustion. And Olive discovers that the only thing more complicated than a hypothesis on love is putting her own heart under the microscope.
The Iron King by Julie Kagawa
MY NAME IS MEGHAN CHASE.
In less than twenty-four hours, I’ll be sixteen. Countless stories, songs and poems have been written about this wonderful age, when a girl finds true love and the stars shine for her and the handsome prince carries her off into the sunset.
I DON’T THINK IT WILL BE THAT WAY FOR ME.
Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan Chase’s life, ever since her father disappeared when she was six. Ten years later, when her little brother also goes missing, Meghan learns the truth—she is the secret daughter of a mythical faery king and a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she’ll go to save someone she loves, to stop a mysterious evil no faery creature dare face…and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.
The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren
Olive is always unlucky: in her career, in love, in…well, everything. Her identical twin sister Ami, on the other hand, is probably the luckiest person in the world. Her meet-cute with her fiancé is something out of a romantic comedy (gag) and she’s managed to finance her entire wedding by winning a series of Internet contests (double gag). Worst of all, she’s forcing Olive to spend the day with her sworn enemy, Ethan, who just happens to be the best man.
Olive braces herself to get through 24 hours of wedding hell before she can return to her comfortable, unlucky life. But when the entire wedding party gets food poisoning from eating bad shellfish, the only people who aren’t affected are Olive and Ethan. And now there’s an all-expenses-paid honeymoon in Hawaii up for grabs.
Putting their mutual hatred aside for the sake of a free vacation, Olive and Ethan head for paradise, determined to avoid each other at all costs. But when Olive runs into her future boss, the little white lie she tells him is suddenly at risk to become a whole lot bigger. She and Ethan now have to pretend to be loving newlyweds, and her luck seems worse than ever. But the weird thing is that she doesn’t mind playing pretend. In fact, she feels kind of… lucky.
I didn’t mean for this TBR to end up as romance heavy as it is but honestly that is what I am in the mood for at the moment. What are you reading in November? Do you have any good romance recommendations? Let me know in the comments below!
September was a little bit of a strange reading month for me, as although I read quite a few books in the month I almost felt as if I was in a reading slump. Quite a few of the books took a while for me to get into them which I think contributed to this, as even though I was reading several pages the story wasn’t really moving.
Fingers crossed this feeling will go away as we head into October, as I have lots of spooky books planned. But first here is my wrap up of all the books that I read in September.Carry On Reading
I can’t believe that we are already in October, where has the year. September was quite a good reading month for me, so I am hoping to carry it into October. I am back to University in October so I have not been to ambitious with my TBR for October, but there are still a couple of spooky books that I want to get in.
So without further ado, here is my TBR for October!Carry On Reading
August was a little bit of a strange month for me as I had a mixed bag when it comes to the books that I read. I found a couple of new favourites as well as one that I would rather forget. This seems to be representative of my reading across the year, but I am hoping that it is going to get a little better in September.Carry On Reading
September’s TBR is a little bit chaotic as I am aiming to complete two readathons within the month, which is not something that I normally do. Fingers crossed that by having so many books to read I will actually get some really good reading done!Carry On Reading
I thought I would have a better reading month in July than I have, but I am still proud of the reading that I have managed to do. I only finished University in the middle of July, so fingers crossed my reading will now pick up as I have more free time. I enjoyed the majority of the books that I read in July but there was a couple of disappointing reads last month which did disappoint me.
But I do still have some thoughts on the books that I managed to read so here they are!Carry On Reading
I can’t believe that August is upon us already, I can’t even work out where most of the year has gone. I don’t have many plans for August but I do plan to get a lot of reading done as I have finally finished with University for the year, so have a month of free reading time. When it comes to books that I have to read for the month I don’t think there are any that need to specifically be read, but there are a couple below that I would love to get to!
Without further ado, here are all the books that I plan to read in August!Carry On Reading
June was a successful reading month for me, as I managed to get to some of the books that I have been putting off forever and read some of my new favourites. Fingers crossed I am going to be able to carry on this momentum for the rest of the year. Without further ado, here are my statistics and mini reviews for the books that I managed to read tin June.Carry On Reading
Hey, how is everyone doing? I can’t believe that we have made it to July already and are halfway through the year, where has the time gone. I had an amazing time reading in June and loved all of the books that I read. July has some amazing things happening for me and I can’t wait for July to be here. One of the things happening in July is that I am helping with the Myth-Take readathon, Path or Pantheon!!!!! I am team captain of the War Path and can’t wait for a retelling filled month.Carry On Reading
