Now that we are solidly into November, I figured it was time to do my October wrap up. October was a pretty decent reading month, though my lack of horror reads is truly disappointing! Still, there were quite a few books I read that had proper spooky vibes, so I’m not too mad about it. I also picked up and finished a duology that I has been on my radar for awhile and I loved it. And I read a new favorite that will most likely end up in my top ten books of the year, so bonus!
That being said, why don’t we dive into my wrap up.

Book: Shadow-Stained by Rachel Hobbs
Thoughts: I read this book for a The Write Reads blog tour. I enjoyed my time with it, though it didn’t blow my mind. It was a paranormal romance that did slow burn in the best way. I also loved Drayvex, the main male character who was a sarcastic legend. You can read my full review here.
Book: Lord Edgware Dies by Agatha Christie
Thoughts: Slowly catching up with an Agatha Christie readalong I’m participating in with some bookish friends! I do enjoy her Hercule Poirot stories, though I always have to remind myself of the time period they were written in. Especially when two separate racial slurs are dropped on one page. Still, this was an interesting mystery and I loved the twist.
Book: The Light at the Bottom of the World by London Shah
Thoughts: I read this book because I was on a blog tour for the sequel. It had also been on my TBR for a minute since watching a rave review about it. I think this is an underrated YA gem! I had such fun reading this exciting and beautiful book. And I enjoyed the sequel just as much!
