  • Sacrifice by Vicky Walklate: I’m reading this to kick off the blog tours for the finalists of last year’s Book Bloggers’ Novel of the Year Award! I didn’t get to read this one as a panelist, so I was excited to sign up for the tour to get a chance to pick it up. So far, it’s definitely captured my interest! I’m liking the worldbuilding and the characters and I’m eager to read more.
  • Finlay Donovan is Killing It by Elle Cosimano: I picked this up on a whim because it became available on Scribd. And also because I’ve been hearing about this series everywhere. Having listened to the first few chapters, I can see why this is so popular! This is such a fun read for a book that is basically about murder. The narrator is also doing an incredible job which is making the experience that much more enjoyable.

  • Good Girl, Bad Blood by Holly Jackson: I’m finally continuing with the A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder series! So far, I’m enjoying the second book. I can tell it’s going to pull me in just as easily as the first book did. I had to set it aside to get some tour books read, but I’m eager to pick it back up! I’m only a few chapters in and things are already getting intense. I’m excited to see where this new story goes.
  • Slappy, Beware by R.L. Stine: I’ve finally picked up my first read off of my 12 friends, 12 recommendations TBR! I have all the books on that list in a TBR jar and this was the lucky one I drew out for January. I’m only a couple of chapters in, but the nostalgia is already hitting hard, haha. I was a big fan of R.L. Stine when I was a kid and this is bringing back memories! I don’t think I ever read any of the Slappy books (because evil puppets freak me out…) so it’ll be interesting to see how I like this one compared to the other Goosebumps books I’ve read.

  • Delilah Green Doesn’t Care by Ashley Herring Blake: I’m about a halfway through this romance and, y’all, I am hooked! Delilah is such an incredible character as is her love interest, Claire. The pining is fantastic, the little looks and gestures make me want to melt, and I’m so excited to see these two finally realize how much they are into each other. I’m also loving the background story that is developing right alongside the romance. There’s a lot going on and I’m here for every bit of it!
  • Heart of the Sun Warrior by Sue Lynn Tan: I started to listening to the audiobook of this because it popped up on Scribd and I’ve been eager to read it for a minute. It helps that it’s on my Netgalley shelf and I’m really trying to trim this down. It’s been a few months since I read Daughter of the Moon Goddess but I was instantly sucked back into the world. Sue Lynn Tan’s writing is just sublime and makes the entire reading experience like watching a movie. I’m a good way in and it’s getting intense. I’m excited to continue!

  • Daisy Darker by Alice Feeney: I’m reading this with a group of bookish friends. I think the general consensus is that we don’t trust anyone and are loving it! I absolutely loved how much this feels like And Then There Were None. The atmosphere is top-notch, the writing has sucked me in, and I’m finding it hard to stick to the book club reading schedule 😂 It helps that I have so many other books on the go, at the moment. Still, I can’t wait to continue!
  • The Hatmakers by Tamzin Merchant: I’m reading this cute middle grade with the Middle Grade Marvels group and I’m having a blast. This is such a fun and unique story, so far. I love the Hatmakers, Cordelia most of all. She’s feisty and smart and ambitious. I’m also loving the illustrations inside the book. I think this will continue to be a great read!

Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston

That’s right, y’all. I’m finally giving this much talked about romance a read. I literally just started it last night, so I can’t really say how I’m feeling just yet. So far, I’m liking Alex, so that’s good! I can’t get behind a romance when I don’t like one (or both) of the MCs. I’m looking forward to getting more into this!

Silver Under Nightfall by Rin Chupeco

I’m participating in Netgalley November with a bunch of bookish friends and this was one of the first ones I picked up. I was excited to pick this up because it sounded like a different take on a vampire story. I was prepared for paranormal hijinks. I was not prepared for a vampire-half vampire-vampire hunter throuple but I ain’t mad about it! This book is dark and steamy and thrilling in the best ways so far. I’m loving the rep, the action, and the ✨drama✨

The Once and Future Witches by Alix E. Harrow

I know I talked about this book recently but I am still reading it. Because I overcommitted to buddy reads this month. Because all the books sounded SO GOOD! So far, I haven’t been disappointed, and that definitely holds true for this book. I’m loving the sisterly dynamics, the look into the suffragist struggle, and, of course, all the witchy stuff. I’m also loving Alix E. Harrow’s writing, which is unsurprising as much as I loved her first book, The Ten Thousand Doors of January.

The Kiss Curse by Erin Sterling

After devouring The Ex Hex, I was eager to pick up the next book in Erin Sterling’s witchy romance series. I’m glad I did because I may have enjoyed this one even more than the first! I loved Gwyn and Wells so much. Their dynamic was *chef’s kiss* and I could read several books about their future shenanigans. I also enjoyed the underlying mystery in this book, though I definitely guessed its resolution. I just love a good, magical mystery, apparently.

The Kiss Curse by Erin Sterling

After completely devouring The Ex Hex, I couldn’t resist picking up the sequel when I came across it on Scribd! So far, this is just as fun and sexy as the first. I’m loving the rivals-to-lovers vibe and Gwen is a certified badass. This book makes me want to live in Graves Glen even more! Also, I have to say I’m really enjoying the narrator for this book.

The Paris Apartment by Lucy Foley

I started listening to this because I had finished an audiobook and I didn’t have another one downloaded. I’ve been wanting to read a Lucy Foley book for awhile, so this seemed like a sign. So far, I’m enjoying the mystery of it all. It’s dark and twisty, with plenty of secrets to keep me interested. Jess kind of makes me want to throttle her, but that’s neither here nor there 😂

The Ex Hex by Erin Sterling

Uuuugh, this book was so freakin’ CUTE! I was reading this as part of a buddy read, but after the first section, I just couldn’t get myself to stop. Which is fine since the feeling was very mutual in the buddy read group 😂 This was such a compulsively readable book. When I wasn’t reading it, I wanted to be, and now that it’s over, I want more! Thankfully, this is just the start to a romance series, which means I can dive right back into Graves Glen.

  • Babel or the Necessity of Violence: an Arcane History of the Oxford Translators’ Revolution by R.F. Kuang: October is the month of buddy reads and this one was at the top of my pile! I’ve had the book since it came out and it’s be difficult holding off. This is probably my number two most anticipated book of the year and now I finally get to read it! So far, I’m absolutely loving the style of the writing, which immediately puts me in mind of the world of academia. It’s probably the footnotes. I’m also loving how this is, so far, a love letter to language. Add on top of that compelling characters and an interesting alternate history and I’m in heaven.
  • The Ex Hex by Erin Sterling: Here we have yet another buddy read and, y’all… if I didn’t five thousand other books to read this month, I would be done with this one already. I’ve only listened to the first nine chapters, but I am absolutely entranced! The small town setting! The witchy goodness! The witchy badness! THE TENSION! I want to gobble this book up all in one sitting, but I’m trying to be patient because I will be useless for buddy read chats if I have to remember what may and may not be a spoiler 😂 Suffice it to say, I’m having a lot of fun with this spooky romance.
