I've already mentioned how my October reading was severely hampered through both illness and injury. First I had the never ending bug that would not go away, and then I pulled a muscle in my neck which left me in agony. Have you ever pulled a muscle in your neck? You would not believe how painful this is!
Anyhow, here's my regular monthly round up. Starting off with...
Adele H. won a copy of VIII by H.M. Castor
Brooke won a copy of Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
Kira B. won a copy of Dark Inside by Jeyn Roberts
Winners of Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick
Jules, Edith, Debbie, Jessica and Georgina
Winners of The Taker by Alma Katsu
Elaine, Louise, Robin and Shauna
All winners have been notified and you should have your books soon. For books sent from The Book Depository please allow up to 28 days for delivery.
*Please Note: I am not responsible for books lost in the mail.
I have two competitions running at the moment! Enter to win a copy of The Long Weekend by Savita Kalhan and a Halloween Prize Pack!
Books I loved in October:
Book of the Month: This is a toughie as I read some great books in October, but I'm going for Angel Fire - the follow up to L.A. Weatherly's Angel. I cannot resist Alex (I have a huge book crush on this guy!)and the romantic scenes in this book just made me swoon like the romantic fool that I am! I'll be reviewing the book tomorrow!
I also loved: I have high praise for both Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor and Between by Jessica Warman. Either of these could also have been my book of the month, but Alex just won it for Angel Fire.
What I'm reading now: The Pledge by Kimberly Derting. Even though I'm not the biggest fan of YA dystopian I had to check this out as it's by Kimberly Derting and I always enjoy her books. I'm enjoying The Pledge so far, and will be reviewing soon!
Top picks for November:
Although there are a couple of buzzed about releases out this month - Crossed by Ally Condie, The Pledge by Kimberly Derting, Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi I'm not super excited for any of them. I really like the sound of The Sharp Time by Mary O' Connell, so that's one I will be checking out. November and December are generally slow months for book releases, but just wait until January when the release day madness begins again!
Coming up on the blog in November:
Along with the usual news and reviews I'll be taking part in the blog tour for Destined by Jessie Harrell and I'll have a competition to win a copy of the book too, so keep an eye out for that!
