October: My Reading Month

Please don’t make fun of me. I’ve barely had any time to read this month! Here’s my paltry little list 😭

What I’ve Read!

Ghost Story by Jim Butcher

Book #13 of The Dresden Files

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Continuing on with my September reading trend, I’m still on The Dresden Files. This one took me a bit longer than I’d like to admit to get through. What’s strange is that Ghost Story is probably my favorite of all of the stories Butcher has told. Unfortunately, my earlier (burgeoning) complaints about far, far too much action and exposition is starting to wear on me. If we lost about 27% of the book to a benevolent editor whose specialty was in hacking away redundancy, I think this might have been a five-star!

Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen

Book #1 of Waverley Family

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Guys, I’m sorry. I just… I had to take a bit of a break from Dresden. I allowed myself this gorgeous distraction from Sarah Addison Allen, and now I’m feeling infinitely more refreshed. I have never felt more enamored with a fictitious family than I was with the Waverleys. I loved them for their quirks and for the otherness they grew into. I loved them for their dysfunction and their nostalgia. There were some parts that were hard for me to emotionally come to grips with, but overall, this story was the heartrending distraction I had desperately needed from reading the same series for weeks.

What I Would Like To Read Next Month

The Firekeeper’s Daughter by Angeline Boulley
