In October, I read 5 books which include:
- Songs of Willow Frost by Jamie Frost
- Fables: The Deluxe Version – Book Three by Bill Willingham
- I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai
- Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
- Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs by Judi Barrett
I enjoyed reading all of them. Songs of Willow Frost by Jaime Frost is a book I actually got from the Dollar Tree for $1.00! I thought it wouldn’t be that good but I actually did like it.
I continued the Fables series with Book Three with a lot of action filled pages till the end. I read I Am Malala for my book club and surprisingly, it was very interesting and eye-opening. I think it is a book that should be on the must-read list in high school in America. I think everyone should read this book.
For Six of Crows, it was hard getting into it in the beginning because it started slow. I actually stop reading it for a bit and thought I’d try again. I forced myself to read the second chapter and I was hooked! I liked the characters and I liked the writing. I can’t wait to continue the story in book 2.
The last book I read in October was Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. I enjoyed the illustration and it was a fun read.
What book was your favorite read in October?
August is almost over and that means it’s time for my monthly reading wrap up. This month I finished reading:
1) Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
2) A Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster
3) Fearless #4 Twisted by Francine Pascal
4) Bright Shadows by Avi
5) Izzy, Willy-Nilly by Cynthia Voigt
6) Cinder by Marissa Meyer
7) The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon
I can’t believe I actually read 7 books! That’s really an all time record for me. My top four favorite books this month are
1) The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time – Everyone should read this book
2) A Phantom Tollbooth – Everyone should read this book, too
3) Wuthering Heights – weird and convuluted plot but entertaining nontheless
4) Cinder – predictable plot but good writing
Also, I DNF-ed A Wrinkle in Time because I just couldn’t get into it. The beginning was slow and it wasn’t hooking me. I’m thinking maybe I’ve fallen out with fantasy cause I DNF-ed The Lord of the Rings as well. But I don’t know. I got to read a lot of other amazing books anyway.
What were your favorite books in August?
