It’s A Wrap – October 2017

16 Comments on It’s A Wrap – October 2017

I feel like I was able to accomplish so much this month. Yay me! I had a lot more free time and I was devouring books left and right. I read so many wonderful books this month and have written so many posts that I am happy with. All in all, this was a good month. I finished my TBR list!

Now next month will not be as interesting. If you have followed any of my posts then you know that I will be participating in NaNoWriMo (you can view everything about NaNo here). This month-long writing contest is going to take a lot of time, so that means I don’t know whether or not I will be able to read. I can always hope to get through a book or two, but nothing to the extent that I do in a normal month.

Before getting bogged down by the sad news that I just delivered, let’s get to what I have read in October!

First, to see my October TBR list

To catch-up on my reviews from September

(All books are linked to my reviews. Some reviews have not been posted, but will be soon!)

I Finished:

I Am More Than A Daydream – Jennae Cecelia

Quiet Refuge – Linda Tincu Peno

First Came Forever – Annie Woods

Live Fast, Die Young – Vanessa Barneveld

Through the Woods – Emily Carroll

Resist the Machine – C.D. Verhoff (Boho Book Club posts)

Project Pandora – Aden Polydoros

Illuminae – Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff – review coming soon!

Reviews Published From Previously Read Books:

The Last Man Trilogy – Tobias Wade

Current Read:

Undeniable – Liz Iavorschi-Braun

Rolling TBR:

I don’t want to forget about the great books that I put on my list. I put them on my list, but either didn’t get to them or they have yet to be published and that means I can’t wait to get them when they’re released. These books include:

Project Pandora – Aden Polydoros

Girl in the Snow – Danya Kukafka

Salt to the Sea – Ruta Sepetys

The Scent of Salt and Sand – Kristin Cast & P.C. Cast

Plank’s Law – Lesley Choyce

The Loneliest Girl in the Universe – Lauren James

Although I have no idea what is in store for me next month, I can always hope that I read one or two books off of my TBR list!

  1. I am so glad you read Illuminae – I’ll definitely have to be on the lookout for your review. xD And Salt to the Sea is so emotional and well-researched, so I hope you enjoy it too. Thanks for sharing and, as always, fabulous recap! <3

    1. Thank you! Illuminae was AMAZING! And Salt to the Sea is definitely going to be read very soon! I can’t wait! 😄

  2. Oh my gosh you must read The Loneliest Girl in the Universe! I read it in one day, so if you get a chance to read this month I recommend picking that one up.
    Good luck with NaNo! I’ll be slagging along with it too!

    1. I really hope to get to it soon! I wish you luck too! Its great having all of this NaNo support this year! ❤

  3. HEYYY!! I AM PARTICIPATING IN NANoWriMo TOO!! It is going to be sooo much FUN. 😁😁 I AM SOO HYOED ABOUT IT. What is the genre of your work? I’ll be working on a Fantasy story I started last year but had to abandon it. I wrote a few….uhhh….thoughts today. I aim to finish the first draft at least. That’ll give me something to work on, you know. 😅 BUT TELL ME ABOUT YOUR WIP?!?! 😁😁

    I have heard about First Came Forver. Supposed to be a good one? But…..I don’t know…I don’t really fancy Romance that much. 😅 By the way, is it Romance??! 😅😂

    1. Good luck with your project!! 😄 Im writing a young adult book but not 100% sure which specific genre it is yet. If you check out my NaNo Prep post ( I’m writing based on option 2! 😄
      First Came Forever is a Romance book but it’s really great! I’m not usually a Romance reader and this one really changed my opinion!
