In October I read a total of 13 books and 2,458 pages!
The Fade Out, Vol. 1-4 by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips: 2/5 stars. This felt so forced to me and like it was trying to rip off pretty much everything from Watchmen. Definitely will not be continuing on with the series.
Mara, Vol. 1-6 by Brian Wood and Ming Doyle (REVIEW): 4/5 stars. African American female lead + becoming a superhero in a dystopian world = awesomeness
Hello, Goodbye, and Everything In Between by Jennifer E. Smith (REVIEW): 4/5 stars. A cute romance novel about the night before leaving for college
The Memoirs of JonBenet by Kathy Acker by Michael Du Plessis: 1/5 stars. Required reading. ‘Nuff said.
All the Words Are Yours by Tyler Knott Gregson (REVIEW): 5/5 stars. I adore TKG’s work, and this was fantastic on so many different levels
Black Bull, Ancestors, and Me: My Life as a Lesbian Sangoma by Nkunzi Zandile Nkabinde: 2/5 stars. Not as terrible as other require readings I’ve had to do, but still just as bad.
Library Wars: Love & War, Vol. 14 by Kiiro Yumi: 5/5 stars. One word: FINALLY!
Salamandrine: 8 Gothics by Joyelle McSweeney: 1/5 stars. More required reading for class.
China Cowboy by Kim Gek Lin Short (A very short review on Goodreads here): 1/5 stars. I think this may go down as my most hated piece of
Madumo, A Man Bewitched by Adam Ashforth: 1/5 stars. These required readings texts are killing me
The Arson People by Katie Jean Shinkle: 3/5 stars. Not bad for a required reading text (I mean a female that burns people’s houses down? Awesome)
Alex + Ada, Vol. 3 by Jonathan Luna and Sarah Vaughn: 5/5 stars. Is the series over? I REALLY hope not because I want more! If this was the end, it was an awesome conclusion!
Fruits Basket, Vol. 22 by Natsuki Takaya: 5/5 stars. This was a quick reread for me, since I was getting back into the anime series and this is probably my all-time favorite one in the series.
In November I want to read:
A Court of Thrones and Roses by Sarah J. Maas (finish rereading)
Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas
A New Hope: The Princess, The Scoundrel, and the Farm Boy by Alexandra Bracken (finish reading)
Passenger by Alexandra Bracken (ARC read, join in my read-a-long here!)
Truly Madly Famously by Rebecca Serle
Not Enough by Mia Hoddell (ARC read)
