Monthly Wrap-Up | October [2018]

Hello Everyone! Welcome back to my another wrap up post! I hope everyone had a great October  and having a great time trick or treating. Well this month, KOA has finally released and I’m still waiting for my copy to arrive. I had celebrated my birthday on Oct 10 and I had a good time stuffing myself with lots of cakes and books. Coming to the reading part, I have managed to read 10 books which I think is not bad. So, overall, it was a good month!

Book Of The Month

NOT EVEN BONES(MARKET OF MONSTERS#1) BY REBECCA SCHAEFFER

This book was a total savage! When the blurb said Dexter meets Savage Song, I knew I had to read this book and it was so good. It was actually a debut novel so I don’t know what to expect from the author, but damn the heavy dark stuff kind of took me by surprise. It was even more dark, gruesome and bloody than I thought it would be. Seriously, it was even more dark, twisted, and gory than Stalking Jack The Ripper and I loved it. It has a gripping story-line but the best aspect I loved about this book was the morally grey characters. I highly recommend this book if you can handle gory stuff like mutilation, cannibalism and bloody torture.

Not Even Bones BLURB: 
Dexter meets This Savage Song in this dark fantasy about a girl who sells magical body parts on the black market — until she’s betrayed.

Nita doesn’t murder supernatural beings and sell their body parts on the internet—her mother does that. Nita just dissects the bodies after they’ve been “acquired.” Then her mom brings home a living specimen, and Nita decides she wants out. But there’s a problem: Nita herself is supernatural being and a prime target for the black market if anyone ever found out. When Nita decides to help her mother’s latest victim escape, she ends up taking his place instead. Nita did a good deed, and it cost her everything. Now she needs to escape and make sure no one can ever sell her again. And to do that, there’s no line Nita won’t cross.


Thank you for reading and Let’s Chat! ❤

    Great stuff on here! The Duchess Deal had us laughing absurdly hard. Cats: A Spinster Bouquet… kills me every time.

      Thank you! Not Even Bones was a unique read! I hope you enjoy it if you decide to give it a shot. The Assassins guide to love and treason was a slow read but I hope you like it.

    First off Happy Belated Birthday!!! It’s been a long time since I visited you, I hope all is well. I been in a major blog/reading slump but looks like it’s coming to the end, finally. But other than that my October was pretty good, celebrated Hubs Birthday as well and ate lots of candy haha.
    I’m so glad that you enjoyed Not Even Bones by Rebecca Schaeffer! I haven’t seen a lot of people talk about it, but I also haven’t been on much. I saw this book at the bookstore and was so intrigued by it. I’m so glad you liked it so much, I’ll definitely.

    Hope you have a great weekend ahead. xoxo

      Thank you so much, Helena! ☺️ I’m glad you had a great October too! Not Even was a unique read! If you can handle gore, then you’ll definitely love the book and the characters.

      Thank you for the visit! Hope you have a wonderful November and Happy Reading! ❤️

    10 books is really good!!! I read super slow compared to most bloggers and I wish I could consistently read 10 a month. NOT EVEN BONES is totally one I meant to get to last month. UGHHHH, I hate when I don’t get time to read my most anticipated books. I almost got Catwoman from the library last time I was there!! I’m not a Sarah J. Maas person (I don’t really read Fantasy), but something about it appeals to me.

      I hope you enjoy Not Even Bones! It was surprisingly good and I didn’t expect to love it. Maas’s Catwoman is a bit different from her fantasy books so definitely give it a shot. I think you’ll like it if you’re looking for a fun read.
      Thanks for the visit and hope you have a wonderful November! ☺️

      It’s not the last book, it’s a novella and it was better than the second book. I’m currently reading the last book and so far, I’m loving it. LOL! 😁I hope you have a great November! ❤️
