I got around to reading eleven books this month. That's a little bit below my average but I had a really busy month so I am surprised I actually read more than a eight books. Anyway, these are the books I read in the month of October!
The Prince (The Selection, #0.5) - Kiera Cass
I have a love/hate relationship with this trilogy. The Selection was okay, The Elite was kind of awful, and The Prince was pretty much more of the same. I read the novella for the same reason I'll read The One: out of curiosity.
Origin (Lux #4) - Jennifer L. Armentrout
I stayed away from the Lux series because the covers put me off. I know, I know...don't just a book by its cover and all of that good stuff. Anyway, I pretty much read all of the books in this series that are currently out in a matter of days. I see it as my guilty pleasure because I really don't want people to know I enjoy them as much as I do. Haha. It isn't the best thing out there but the books are entertaining and fun. And yes, I'm looking forward to the last book in the series.
Definitely, Maybe in Love - Ophelia London
I did a review of this one HERE. Summary: I enjoyed it. A lot.
Another series that I kept putting in the "maybe someday" pile. I'm so ashamed of this because I love it! The world is amazing, I love the writing, the characters are great...I'm officially in love and I can't wait to get through all of the books.
Freakboy - Kristin Elizabeth Clark
I reviewed this one as well. You can read it HERE. I enjoyed this one the most out of all of the books I read this month.
Just One Year (Just One Day, #2) - Gayle Forman
So, based on my October TBR, you might already know that I was static to get my hands on this one. It didn't disappoint. The only downside to this is that I read them months apart so I didn't get the full experience. I caught little things here and there but I'll definitely reread them together at some point next year.
Allegiant (Divergent, #3) - Veronica Roth
Ah, this one happened. It was featured in my October TBR and...well, I have mixed feelings about it. I made a post about the ending but I didn't talk about anything else. Personally, I enjoyed the entire book. Did I think the writing was exceptional? Not really. Was I satisfy with the "answers" we got? Nope. But do I still love this trilogy? YES.
The Darkest Minds - Reread - Alexandra Bracken
I didn't want to reread this one. Not because I didn't like it the first time around but because I read it early this year and it wasn't going to count towards the 2013 Book Challenge. However, I kept reading everywhere that people were having a hard time remember details as they read Never Fade so I caved in and picked it up. I can honestly say that this book is WAY better the second time you read it. If you haven't read it, the beginning is a little slow BUT keep going! It gets so much better after the 50% mark.
In Time (The Darkest Mind, #1.5) - Alexandra Bracken
After rereading The Darkest Minds, I downloaded this novella because I heard that it is crucial to the story. It is definitely worth a read! In Time offers a different perspective on the whole issue with the children and it gives a little bit more of an insight on the color classifications.
If a Pirate I Must Be - Richard Sanders
Okay, so I had to read this for my Archaeology of Piracy class BUT it was awesome! I'm a little embarrassed that it took me twenty days to read it but fun reading > required reading. ALWAYS.
Overall, October was a good reading month! I only have ten books left to finish the 100 Book Challenge so I'm right on track. Did you read any of these books this month? Let me know!
