What I Read In October:
Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas – YA PARANORMAL – 5 STARS
I loved Cemetery Boys, it was the perfect read for October. It has such an autumnal feeling as it features ghosts and I really liked the characters. I liked how Yadriel and Julian interacted with each other and I thought their romance was well developed. This book also had some great themes and I would highly recommend reading it.
Not Here To Be Liked by Michelle Quach – YA CONTEMPORARY – 4 STARS (I was sent a free copy of this book by the publisher after winning a giveaway)
I really liked this book and liked how it discusses feminism. I liked how Eliza realises different things about herself and others throughout the book and I enjoyed reading about her friendship with Len.
Crave (Crave #1) by Tracy Wolff – YA PARANORMAL – 4 STARS
I’ve heard a lot of hype surrounding this book series and a lot of people’s views on it seem to be mixed. This book is about a school full of different paranormal creatures and the main character who is thrown into the world without any clue of what’s going on. I did really enjoy this book and thought the writing had an addictive quality to it. It didn’t feel as long as it was and I’m interested to see what happens next in the story.
The Once and Future Witches by Alix E. Harrow – YA HISTORICAL FANTASY – 4 STARS
I liked this book and the talk of women’s rights and how it mixes that with witches. It was a really interesting read and I enjoyed reading about the sister relationships in it. It was a bit slow at times but I enjoyed it none the less.
Merry Kissmas To You by Jenni Jennings – YA CONTEMPORARY – 4 STARS – (I was sent a free copy of this book by the publisher for review)
I really liked Merry Kissmas To You and thought it was a great festive filled story. The characters all felt very real and I liked how this book has multiple povs because it gave each character more depth as you read from their pov. This is a great book to get you in the Christmas spirit.
Mina and the Undead by Amy McCaw – YA PARANORMAL – 3 STARS
This book is about vampires, which I love, is set in the 90s and talks about horror movies and I really wanted to love it but I didn’t. I thought it was an okay book but I didn’t feel an attachment to any of the characters and I found their reaction to things a bit unbelievable. I also thought the romance was very quick but the book does have a nice spooky feeling to it which I liked.
The Ex Hex (Ex Hex #1) by Erin Sterling – ADULT PARANORMAL – 3 STARS
This was a fun witchy book and I liked the setting and atmosphere of it but I thought the romance was just okay. I also thought the story and romance were predictable but still it was a fun quick read.
