October 2018 Wrap-Up!

Hooray! I am not late for this wrap-up!

october wrap up

What’s New?

October has been messy. I am still adjusting to my new life. Some days have been brilliant, others painful, but all in all, October was okay. Good days, bad days, I keep them all!

The highlight of this month will stay my second meeting with Ragnar Jónasson and his wonderful publisher!

Books I read this month

Very happy with my reading this month! Not because I finally read more, but because I got lucky and found amazing reads. Quality over quantity! Well, both are better :p

Books I reviewed

1 + 1 + 1: Lies Between Us by Ronnie Turner @Ronnie__Turner @HQDigitalUK @HQStories #BlogTour

Hidden in the Dark: In Her Shadow by Mark Edwards @mredwards

Sealed Lips: One Perfect Witness by Pat Young @py321_young @Bloodhoundbook

Tense Doesn’t Even Cover It: Trap by Lilja Sigurðardóttir @lilja1972 @OrendaBooks #RandomThingsTours @AnneCater

Killer Read on Every Level: Fatal Promise by Angela Marsons @WriteAngie @bookouture #KimStoneSeries

Ready for the Lie Detector: The Righteous Spy by Merle Nygate @MerleNygate @Verve_Books

Toxic Blood: Hush Hush by Mel Sherratt @writermels @avonbooksuk

Lazy Saturday Review: And So It Begins by Rachel Abbott @RachelAbbott @Wildfirebks @ThePigeonholeHQ

Pick and Choose: She Chose Me by Tracey Emerson @TraceyJEmerson @Legend_Press #SheChoseMe @CBrotherstone

Another win here with more reviews than usual! Although I still believe I need to take a step back from tours, they have been very helpful to make me write this month.

New Books (won, purchased, for review, whatever)

Again, I lost track of this part of the wrap-up… Oops!

Book of the Month Award

This month’s choice is one of the most difficult I’ve had to make. So many great books, lots of originality, fab characters, awesome plots… But there can only be one.

fatal promise

So why Fatal Promise? Because of Kim Stone, because of the writing, because it punched me in the gut, because it made me tear up, because I cursed, because I am in love with this series. And when your head can’t pick, you just follow your heart. So here’s to Angela Marsons making me a happy reader again!

Blogging time!

Starting this week if my WiFi comes back, or next week if I am THAT unlucky, I’ll be posting a very small sum-up of the week, along with Suntags if I find new ones…

  1. I’m glad to hear you’ve been good. You sound so positive (I am aware that sentence probably sounds dumb, but I don’t know how else to say it).
    And yes, quality over quantity, always, but if it’s both, then it’s goals (at least for a slow reader myself).


  2. Oh, poor you, I hate it when internet issues intervene! I had two periods of working daily at my local McDonalds for a werk or two while living in France until Numéricable finally sorted it out.


  3. My Sweechie, it sounds like you had a lovely reading month – you’re so right, quality over quantity for sure! 😀 I hope that November will treat you well, sending you tons of love ❤ ❤


  4. You beat me this time! xD Sounds like you had a wonderful month bookish wise… I still can’t believe I haven’t started the Kim Stone series yet (and with NINE books pending, it’s getting a little too intimidating to do so xD) And you got so many wonderful goodies as well in October! Here’s to November being a wonderful month. ❤ ❤ xx


    1. Haha, I win for once!!! I can’t believe I got to read so many fab books! It reminds me how lucky I am 🙂 I totally know what you mean about the Stone series! I have five books to read I think! October was good to me in many ways. Let’s hope November doesn’t let us down! ❤ xxxx

  5. That’s a lot of posts that I have missed and will catch up on reading. How annoying your Wi-Fi and kindle are down! 😣. Paperbacks are calling out to you. It’s fab you are on book 9 of Angela’s. I hope there will be more Kim love coming.
    Hope work is not too bad this weekend. 💖💛.

    1. I think my print books blackmailed all the technology in the house so they could have a better chance at being read before the end of the year, haha!
      I haven’t read all the books in the series, but I so want to! It’ll be fab to go back to previous novels and see the development. Angela Marsons does it perfectly.
      Lots of love! xxx
