This month had its highs and lows reading-wise - but I have to say that Emily St. John Mandel's Station Eleven was outstanding. I tore through it while simultaneously needing to know what happens RIGHT THE HELL NOW, and never, ever wanting it to end. I think it's one of those rare books pretty much everyone will find something to like in, so I highly recommend that you scurry your buns down to your nearest book dealer and acquire yourself a copy. You can thank me (with more books, of course) later. The other books I finished were:

I also started: 

Loving Not That Kind of Girl and Not My Father's Son so far. Glory O'Brien is.... weird. Not sure where it's going or if I want to go there. Nightmares! is really engaging - it's for younger audiences so it's easy to get into and should be a quick read.

Here are the reviews I posted in October:

In other news, here's what you might have missed around the blog this month:

I've enjoyed October's reads - and so many great books came out that I've got plenty I'm looking forward to.Now it's your turn - which stellar books did you finish in the past month? Did you pick up any great ones you're excited to read? Share in the comments!


  1. I just won a copy of Station Eleven and can't wait to read it.
    I read another by her, The Singer's Gun, I HIGHLY recommend it too.
    Happy November reading!

    1. Oh, you are in for a treat! I just published my review of it today. I LOVED it - and I immediately ordered every single other book by her I could find! I'm rationing them out though, because when I truly love an author's work, I like knowing there's more of their work out there still to be enjoyed - which is the main reason I still haven't read Rainbow Rowell's Attachments!

  2. I haven't yet read a St. John book, and by all the positive reviews I know I am missing out. Must rectify the situation.

    1. I can't wait to hear what you think! I've got her other three books sitting on my shelf. I'm trying to contain myself and not devour them all at once, but I'm not gonna lie - it's really difficult!
