Book Report: October 2016

Well, I finally had a month where I read more than 3 books again. Didn’t read as much as I would have liked, though, so I’m still slightly behind on my reading schedule. Not that far behind – and I know I’ll have a bit of time for reading around Christmas this year because I have a longer break than I’ve had before, so I’m not worried.

Anyhow, here’s the report for October. As always it’s inspired by C.R.M Nilsson – link in the sidebar!

  • Book of the Month: A wonderful end to this amazing series, albeit not as good as the book before.
  • Surprise of the Month: A Shakespeare retelling that felt incredibly real. So glad I got an ARC for this!
  • Worst of the Month: Too much insta-love. Ugh.
  • Disappointment of the Month: This was not what I expected from Khaled Hosseini. Too confusing.
