October Wrap Up

I was right, October was a more tiring month than September! But we’re edging closer towards Christmas a.k.a. my favourite time of year so it’s not all bad.


  • Northern Lights - Philip Pullman ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
  • Autumn - Ali Smith ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
  • The Subtle Knife - Philip Pullman ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
  • Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow - Yuval Noah Harari ⭐️⭐️⭐️
  • We Have Always Lived in the Castle - Shirley Jackson ⭐️⭐️⭐️

WHAT A READING MONTH. I may not have read as much as usual but look how many 5 star reads! Autumn, The Subtle Knife, and Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race are the stand out reads for me this month and if you get me talking about them, I won’t stop so I’m just going to say: read them.

Book Haul

I’m pretty pleased that I managed to keep it to a minimum this month - the audiobooks were either credits I hadn’t used or the £1.99 daily deal, and also have the advantage of not adding to my physical TBR. I’ve already listened to Death on The Nile so no addition to the TBR there either. I’m still hoping to improve on this next month!

Personal Update

  • Nothing interesting happened in October, I just worked a lot - hence the lack of blog posts!

Blog Posts

Let me know how your Octobers were and also please link any blog posts you think I should read because I have been so out of the loop because of work but I need a break!
Happy reading,
