Monthly Rewind: October 2019

Monthly Rewind: October 2019

B O O K S

During the month of October, I read 4 books. As we reach the end of the year, my reading time really limits because of university. (May feels like a lifetime away right now, but I know it’ll be here in a blink of an eye 😂) But I really enjoyed the books I read this month!

Don’t Date Rosa Santos

“Don’t Date Rosa Santos was delightful and moving. Its emphasis on family and community makes it such a touching read, and one of my most surprising reads of the year. It really was something special.” Read my review here!

Crier’s War

One of YA’s biggest releases this year, and I really enjoyed it! It was a fun exciting read about two girls, one human, one Made, falling in love in amidst of a human revolution. It’s advertised as an epic fantasy but it felt more low key.

Other Words for Home

A sweet novel in verse about a young Syrian girl who moves to the US. It’s one of those stories that I wished existed when I was younger.

Goddess of the Hunt

A poetry collection about Artemis, Greek Goddess of the Hunt. Told through the perspective of Artemis with contribution of other Goddesses.

A feature section to highlight my favourite posts from my fellow bloggers that were posted this month. 

That’s it for this month! Tell me what went on in YOUR life this month! What sort of things was important for you this month? New obsessions? New TV shows? Or book? Any new song recs (I’m always open to new music!)? Best books you read this month?

Monthly Rewind: May & June 2018

I missed out on doing a May rewind because I was very mentally exhausted from finishing my first year of university that I didn’t even do much blog wise but I feel like I’ve jumped back from that dull feeling and I feel like I’m doing much better now! So I’ve quickly tacked on my May reads and music just so its documented.
