The Wrap Up: October Edition


Welcome to my monthly wrap-up! I hope that you've had a great month.

Please leave a link to your blog (if you have one) in your comment or make sure your Disqus profile has your address so that I can visit you back! 

I try to link all book covers to Goodreads or to my review (if there is one) which is in turn linked to Goodreads.


Oh boy, oh boy. Goodbye October! What a month that was. I was just CRAZY BUSY in so many aspects of my life, so of course reading and other hobbies really didn't get much time.

Once again I need to do a massive blog catch up. I'm perpetually behind on reading and now with only two months left in the year it's looking less and less like I will make my goal of 80. But that's Okay! So long as I'm still reading, still blogging, still taking pictures that I'm happy with.

I got A LOT of books this month from both publishers and authors which I am thrilled about - they're all under my New Arrivals section. I'll be bookstagramming and reviewing some of them soon. 


What I read:

The Lady's Guide to Petticoats and PiracySpinning SilverTower of DawnKingdom of Ash
A pretty rough reading month but I still got to Kingdom of Ash for which I am grateful!

What I am currently reading:

 War of Storms
I'm currently reading War of Storms which is the third and final book in the Ryogan Chronicles which started with Island of Exiles. I'll be joining the blog tour being hosted by Chapter by Chapter and my review stop will be on the 8th (next Thursday). Signups may still be open if you're interested! 

Up Next:

Ash PrincessFrom the Earth to the Shadows

New Arrivals:

EvermoreThe Gilded WolvesSpinning SilverSeas of Crimson Silk War of StormsThe Sisters of the Winter WoodThe Stories Behind the Magic
Huge thanks to Emma Hamm, Pan Mac, Jonathan Ball, Harper Teen, Entangled Teen and St Martin's Press. I'm so excited about these!
