October Wrap up & November TBR

So, finally here it is, my October Wrap Up and November-TBR!

Last month I manage to read/listen to 8 books altogether but only because I have been sick in bed for a week straight.

October Wrap-up

2015-11-03 19.56.21

The first book I read was The Rose Society by Marie Lu. The Review can be find here.

Then picked up Scherbenseele (Glass bodies) – a German book. It’s by the Swedish author duo Erik Axel Sund. I rated it 4 Stars.

Next up I listened to the German version of Carrie (Stephen King). I expected more of it to be honest. It’s maybe because I knew the movie – the old original one from 1976 – for many, many years (basically since I was 10 when I saw it for the first time…) that made me not liking the book as much as I would have wanted to. It’s one of these rare expectations where the movie is better than the book. But there will probably come a full review. However, I have it 3 stars.

Then I finally finished The Banished of Muirwood  Jeff Wheeler. A review to it will come within this week. I rated it with 4,5 Stars. Continue reading “October Wrap up & November TBR”

My god, how can it be October already? To where did this month vanish? It’s horrible that time passes so quickly.

Well, over September was a pretty OK reading month. I read 5 books all together and that’s a good amount of books I’d say.

September TBR

I guess I have mentioned it before, but I usually don’t plan on what I will read every month. I pick a book up according to my mood and on what I feel like reading. Otherwise, this would put way too much pressure on me. But I have received rather a lot of books from Netgalley this week, so I had to make a September TBR.
