What I Read Last Month: October 2015

What I Read October 2015

So, I kicked last month off with the last published novel in my favorite series, (it took me 10 days to start reading, though). After that, though, I kicked off a huge spree on another series, so bear with me! Then I didn’t read very much because I totally dragged my feet on a final book.

Contemporary

A Dangerous Place

a dangerous place

Verdict: Maisie has a lot going on in her life.

A lot happened between the book before A Dangerous Place and A Dangerous Place. Her life was completely altered, so she was getting it back together. It was interesting and full of new characters, so it wasn’t the same old, same old. But, part of me longed for a book about what happened in between or the same old, same old that I get whenever I pick up a Dobbs novel.

So, I sure read a ton of these novels last month! Really, a lot of them. I liked the first two that I read, but I was really caught up in the Maisie Dobbs series. Once I finished those, I had to pick up Her Royal Spyness again. The romance in them kept me reading and reading. I can’t wait for the next release!

Summer Secrets

Verdict: Average summer novel

Not much to say other than I learned a little bit about alcoholism and addiction. I listened to the novel read by the author. I wouldn’t recommend that you rush and put this at the top of your TBR list.

Career of Evil (Cormoran Strike #3)

career of evil

Verdict: A great 3rd novel in the series!

I enjoyed this novel a lot more than the second novel in the series. I loved the first one, but the second one bothered me. It was all sorts of weird. It takes a lot to weird me out. This one was released at a great time, right before Halloween!

So, I spent many, many weeks reading another novel, so I never got to more novels. Plus, pain had me watching more TV than normal. I meant to read some classics… oops!

  • Ooo, the Royal Spyness series looks really good! I’ll have to check them out.

  • i like to keep jane green’s books for when i need something a bit mindless. the royal spyness series is on my list, and so is the first robert galbraith book.

  • Anne @ I need some inspiration

    I have not read any of these. Should I read the Twelve Clues of Christmas for fun during Christmas time? Or should they not be read out of order?

    • You definitely need to read them in order. Reading the Christmas one would totally ruin the series up until that point. And, the author gives a quick intro at the beginning, but it’s not as fun if you haven’t been following the whole love saga, etc.
