This is the first wrap up post I’ve done! I’m sure there’s going to be plenty more to come ❤
So this month I finished 7 books, all with reviews up on my blog.
Instead of rambling on, let’s just get straight into this!
Ink and Bone – rated 2//5
I wasn’t really too impressed by this book. There was a lot of hype for it, and all the reviews I had read were good…but I just couldn’t get into it.
I’m pretty sure fans of Rachel Caine will enjoy it, but for me, no.
Illuminae – rated 4.5//5
I’ve been trying to get into SciFi more, and when I saw how this book was formatted, I HAD to pick it up. I loved it!
Cress – rated 4.5//5
Another book that I loved! Since the release of Winter (the 4th book in this series) happened recently, I thought it was about time I read this.
Shadow and Bone -rated 4//5
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo has been catching my eye for a while now, but since everybody is saying that it’s better than the Grisha trilogy, I wanted to give the Grisha trilogy a go first.
Shatter Me – rated 4//5
I read this purely because Tahereh Mafi seems like such a nice person and I wanted to see her work. But I adore how she writes and describes things!
The Left Hand of God – DID NOT FINISH
I went into this thinking it was going to be a medieval fantasy type book. It sort of was…but just…no.
The book was based on this religious following that would be very strict with it’s ways. There was a huge amount of unnecessary violence, and it became disturbing very quickly. I just wasn’t enjoying it and was forcing myself to read, causing myself to go into a reading slump, so I decided (as much as I hate it) to put the book down and not finish it.
I believe I got to page 179 of 500.
Half Blood – rated 3.5//5
I’ve owned this book for over a year now, so it was about time I read it. It was a fun and easy read, and I’m sure I’ll continue with the series, as well as try out more of her books.
Five Seven Five – rated 4//5
I was sent this book in exchange for an honest review, and I’m so glad it was because I loved it!
As well as the books I read this month, I edited and extended 2 more reviews for the purpose of this blog:
The Knife of never Letting Go – read in August and rated 4//5
I read this book because most of my favourite booktubers adore it, and although I didn’t absolutely love it, I did enjoy it a lot.
The Queen of the Tearling – read in September and rated 4.5//5
I loved this one because it had a different take on fantasy, where there was a mix of politics within. I was afraid this would be boring, but it wasn’t at all!
There were plenty of other posts throughout November, so go and check them out if you haven’t already!

I’ve been meaning to read Shatter Me for awhile now. I got it from the library awhile ago and just never read it. PS I friend requested you on Goodreads. I’m Alahna Rebecca on there!
