October Wrap-Up

I have been MIA for a few weeks. I was super busy with work stuff (my job hosts several big events during the first week of November) and when I got back from my work trip, I had the flu for a week. So I’m just getting around to posting my October Wrap-Up now, in the middle of November. Whoops.

As a whole, October wasn’t my strongest reading month. I read only 4 books (none of which were from my TBR list), but I was so busy that I’m more than happy to have read any books at all.

Screen Shot 2015-11-15 at 2.34.14 PM Title: Ruin and Rising
Author: Leigh Bardugo
Date finished: October 10, 2015
My rating: ☆☆☆☆ (Four stars)
Notes: I loved this series already, but this was such an absurdly great ending. There was this feeling of loss, but just the perfect amount, if that makes any sense.

Title: Six of Crows
Author: Leigh Bardugo
Date finished: October 11, 2015
My rating: ☆☆☆☆ (Four stars)
Notes: I expected to love it. I did love it. I need to read more heist books. And Leigh Bardugo needs to write more books.

Title: Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe
Author: Benjamin Alire Sáenz
Date finished: October 13, 2015
My rating: ☆☆☆½ (Three and a half stars)
Notes: It was good, with some decent bits about being Hispanic and American. I couldn’t shake the feeling that I was missing out by not reading this by audiobook, where I could have had my idol Lin-Manuel Miranda reading it to me.

Title: Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda
Author: Becky Albertalli
Date finished: October 18, 2015
My rating: ☆☆☆☆ (Four stars)
Notes: So cute so cute! I thought this book was absolutely adorable.
