October needed more books in it. There, I said it.
Truth is, I’ve been working so much and preparing for the release of Scorpio’s Grace that I haven’t had nearly enough time to read. Thankfully, that’ll all change this month with fewer hours at the daily grind and more reading and writing.
October’s been such a diverse reading month though and I really hope I can have more like it in the future. Graphic novels, old favourites and new books. This month I discovered the amazing Kat Ross, who is a fantastic storyteller. I’m ready to review a second book of hers The Thirteenth Gate this Wednesday and (spoiler alert) I love it!
Now the nights are getting longer I’ve got more urges to read darker urban fantasies and Kat Ross’ books are just the ticket. They’re just dark enough to enjoy on a cold evening in candlelight with incense lit and a hot cup of fruit tea. (Or maybe I’m just fantasising about how I want November to be). October was a great start to darker reads.
I loved this one; both story and illustrations. All the characters came to life on paper as opposed to the TV screen, where the story begins. It translated so well and I can’t wait to read the next one!
This is the book that made me fall in love with the books of Kat Ross. So much mystery and a touch of magic, plus can get pretty dark and gruesome at times. It was a perfect October read that’s for sure.
A Discovery of Witches
This one was a guilty re-read. Guilty because I should have been reading other things. But it’s one of my favourite books ever and it had been too long. I’m talking at least a year. Criminal, I know.
I’m going to set way more time aside for reading this month now I’ll be working less so I might even have the chance to read more books than usual. All work and no play has nothing to do with dullness, it can just drive you insane.
Have a great November and thanks for reading!
