Oh dear, I was definitely too eager with my reading pile last months. I planned to read sooo much and did actually only read 1 book and listened to 2 audiobooks. Ups.
I’m about halfway through Illuminae and I really like the book but I guess I just been to distracted (by netflix) and got into a reading slump…
The book I read was Still by Zoran Drvenkar and I listened to The Ciphers of Muirwood and The Void of Muirwood both by Jeff Wheeler.
Anyway, I won’t be doing a TBR for December and just see what will happen.
As for the books I got: I bought 4 books and got 2 for review.
Carry On – Rainbow Rowell
Legacy of Kings – Eleanor Herman
Illuminae – Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
Harry Potter & The Philosopher’s Stone – J.K. Rowling
The Three Graces – Michele Wolfe
Under The Dusty Moon – Suzanne Sutherland

Duuuh! I’m such a dummie! It’s October. O-C-T-O-B-E-R!
That means Halloween! I totally missed that when I posted by October TBR. So of course I will be reading some scary/creepy books the next 1,5 months. In Mid-November I will probably move one to some more chrismassy books.
So here’s my edited version:
Stephen King – Carrie
Maggie Stiefvater – The Raven Boys
Michelle Knudsen – The Evil Librarian
Bram Stoker – Dracula (Simon & Schuster 2014)
– or –
Mary Shelly – Frankenstein (Simon & Schuster 2014)

Marie-Laure lives with her father in Paris near the Museum of Natural History, where he works as the master of its thousands of locks. When she is six, Marie-Laure goes blind and her father builds a perfect miniature of their neighborhood so she can memorize it by touch and navigate her way home. When she is twelve, the Nazis occupy Paris and father and daughter flee to the walled citadel of Saint-Malo, where Marie-Laure’s reclusive great-uncle lives in a tall house by the sea. With them they carry what might be the museum’s most valuable and dangerous jewel.
In a mining town in Germany, the orphan Werner grows up with his younger sister, enchanted by a crude radio they find. Werner becomes an expert at building and fixing these crucial new instruments, a talent that wins him a place at a brutal academy for Hitler Youth, then a special assignment to track the resistance. More and more aware of the human cost of his intelligence, Werner travels through the heart of the war and, finally, into Saint-Malo, where his story and Marie-Laure’s converge.
