October Wrap-up!

Yes, I’ve changed monthly favorites to wrap-ups because I actually read more than 0 books the past month and wanted to brag about my remarkable reading speed. It’s remarkable. All the other book bloggers who read 420 books in a month are shaking.

BOOKS

1) Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman

I read this the first day of October cause I felt vaguely guilty about not reading much last month. I loved this book but due to the fact that I have the memory of an amnesiac, senile goldfish, my idiot self forgot everything that happened in it. However great book 4/5 would recommend.

2) An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson

Again I did a goof and didn’t review it immediately, this is all I have in my notes- “This wasn’t the books fault but every time they mentioned Rook, which is a lot because he is an MC, I would think about the chess piece, because I’m a nerd (fun fact: I used to go to chess classes as a kid because the teacher had a dog who I would lovingly gaze at)” Make of that what you will. It had a lot of walking like A LOT, even Forrest Gump didn’t walk as much 3/5.

3) Scythe by Neal Shusterman 

I actually did review this, click here for a more than 100 word rant thenks, however if you are not inclined to do some clicking here’s a review in short: Much staby staby Such plot twisty twisty.

4) Ruined by Amy Tintera 

I reviewed this too, wow impressive it’s almost like I’m a book blogger or something. Mini-review: not enough staby staby

5) Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson 

I LOVED THIS BOOK. It made my teeny heart triple in size. I will *eventually* review this book so please hold for more details.

6) Recipe for Disaster by Miriam Morrison

I saw a TTT prompt for books below 1000 ratings on Goodreads and came to the realization that I truly am a basic beach ball who only reads somewhat mainstream YA books, so I picked this up, it has cooking and cuteness, now that my basic beef jerky-ness has been disproved by science, I’m going to continue with the regularly scheduled programming of YA EVERYDAY YAY!

(Please enjoy these somewhat neatly arranged book covers that certainly didn’t take me an hour to align)

BLOGGING

I have an unofficial posting schedule of Tuesday and Saturday (which usually becomes Wednesday and Sunday) but I missed the weekday post for two weeks because exams are the mental equivalent of stepping on a lego. But I did manage to post 7 posts:

P.S After doing 2 assignments and 2 reports over 1 weekend (horrible odds, do not recommend) and forming a very close relationship with the Justify option, I finally realized it’s also on Word press, which 1) who put it there and 2) do people actually use it?? Am I doing blogging all wrong?
