Wrap Up | October 2019

Hello, bookish friends! ✨

Another month of 2019 down, another wrap up! I have to say October was a pretty great reading month for me since I was able to knock 14 books out of the park. I’m a little impressed with myself since I don’t think I’ve ever read that many books in a month before. It was a month filled with lots of creepy/paranormal reads to give me all the Halloween feels and I was living for it.

Let’s dive in!

What I read in October

The Bone Houses by Emily Lloyd-Jones – ★★★★
Heart of the Moors by Holly Black – ★★★
The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware – ★★★★
All the Things We Do in the Dark by Saundra Mitchell – ★★★★
The Beautiful by Renee Ahdieh – ★★★.5
Drop Dead Gorgeous by R.L. Stine – ★★★
Tunnel of Bones by Victoria Schwab – ★★★
Capturing the Devil by Kerri Maniscalco – ★
Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman – ★★
Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo – ★★★★
Scare City by Paul Jenkins, Fred Pham Chuong, Veronica R. Lopez – no rating
Reveal Me by Tahereh Mafi – ★★

Don’t feel like reading a review?
Here’s my thoughts on each book in one sentence!
  1. The Bone Houses – Zombies that will make you cry happy tears.
  2. Heart of the Moors – Holly Black + faeries + Maleficent = autobuy.
  3. The Turn of the Key – A whodunnit that surprisingly blew me away.
  4. All the Things We Do in the Dark – So powerful I’m probably still crying.
  5. The Beautiful – Vampires with a side of…not vampires?
  6. Drop Dead Gorgeous – WIG SNATCHED.
  7. Tunnel of Bones – Second book syndrome at it’s finest.
  8. Capturing the Devil – Hallelujah! It’s over.
  9. Practical Magic – A plotless book with magic and messages.
  10. Ninth House – Can’t wait to see y’all in hell 🙌🏻
  11. Scare City – The closest I’ll ever get to reliving watching Halloweentown for the first time.
  12. Reveal Me – More like Release Me from this mess, please.
  13. The Institute – Stephen King but make it not horror.
  14. The Babysitter’s Coven – 90’s nostalgia written for anyone but 90’s babies.

Favorite Read of the Month


I love Galaxy and Darlington.
Together or separate, I don’t care I just love them a lot.

Least Favorite Read of the Month


There is one word I have for this one and that is… YIKES.

We officially have two months left to crush those Goodreads goals. I have fourteen books left to go! How many books are you aiming to finish before the year ends?

Until next time,

    1. HAHAHA!! Now I’ve been slumping for half of November so I’m sure I’ll look back on October and wonder how the hell I managed that.

      I think you made the wise choice. I actually really liked book two but after that it went downhill FAST and consistently got worse 😭

  1. Yay, I love seeing all the good thoughts about Ninth House!! I can’t wait to get my grubby paws on it 💕✨ I see that you gave Reveal Me two stars, which makes me sad. I read Restore Me and didn’t like it, so I don’t think I’ll be continuing the series, choosing to remember the OG trilogy that I loved.


    1. YESSS, it’s soooo good! I can’t wait for you to read it!

      Honestly, if you don’t continue I don’t blame you. It’s just been an info dump of soooo many different things that at this point I have no idea how it can be wrapped up in one last book. The first three will always be the best 😍


  2. Ahhhh I just started the Shatter Me series does it really only get worse?

    So far it’s been eh as it is, I’ve been through the trilogy—but is it worth it to finish the series anyways? Or is it time I could spend on something else xD


    1. It came out in February this year! I actually saw it when I was scrolling through my library app looking for books that would be good to read in October and I figured why not give it a shot!
