October’s insights!

I don’t really have insights on my October reads.  I know once I’ve found an author or series I love, I tend to binge on them or alter my reading schedule in order to fit in any new releases coming out.

I saw Melina Marchetta and I had to have it.  I bought Crooked Kingdom the day it came out, and I was rewarded with two amazing reads.  TJ Klune released a book, and I devoured it passionately because I knew I would adore it.

I also realized, while I do like some horror novels, they’re very hit and miss for me.  I was so excited to read The Girl With All The Gifts and it turned out it wasn’t for me.  I think I may be more hesitant with my next horror selection and not hop right in.

Anyway, October was a very casual month for me.  I planned out my reads for the month, and I stuck to it without deviating much at all.  I’m hoping to get to a place where my book selection can be more spontaneous.

What I’ve got my eye on for November?


I’ve already got four books scheduled for review.  Scythe and Gemina are two books I’ve been waiting impatiently for, and now they’re in my hands and I’m eager to read them.  On Broken Wing is the final book in a trilogy, and while I’m not overly fond of the series I have to finish this book.  I need the conclusion.  Little Heaven is my first Nick Cutter read, and I admit to trepidation.  Remember what I said above, I’m not eager to read another horror novel.


These I may not read at all.  BUT, they’re on my radar.  I’ll be trying to fit these in as soon as I can.  I’ll probably also pick things at complete random depending on how they suit my mood so I might not even read these at all.

The best part is it’s my prerogative!  I love that.


About Birdie

Don’t look for her in any bar, club, crazy raging party, or anywhere there may be a large gathering of strangers. She’s more likely to be found tucked into the corner of the couch watching one of her favorite shows, or preferably under a comforter with her current novel.

  1. The hard part of blogging (for me) is the sometimes militant reading schedule. If you get a little bit behind, there really is no room to read for joy. And that’s not to say I won’t enjoy scheduled reads, I just love being able to cater my books to my moods. (Of which, sadly, there are many. LOL)

    I’m intrigued by the Mel Bossa rating. I read one book by her, and it made me very angry. It’s making me hard to want to give the author another go, but there are some MB blurbs I find really interesting.
