Monthly Wrap Up

October 2020 Monthly Wrap Up

This month has been busy! I am currently co hosting a readalong for The Empire of Gold which I have loved. I especially love seeing everyone’s reactions when reading.

I also spent a lot of this month organising my Muslim Shelf Space bookish box which are still available to buy on my etsy if you are interested!

I also read some incredible books this month! So here is what I read this month:

Kingdom of the Wicked by Kerri Maniscalco – I loved this so much! I am completely hooked and I cannot wait for the sequel. My full review is here

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Recipe for Persuasion by Sonali Dev – While I did enjoy this I didn’t love it as much as Pride, Prejudice and Other Flavours.

Rating: 3 out of 5.

The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco – I really loved this book! It was so interesting and unique!

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Prime Deceptions by Valerie Valdes – The sequel was even better than the first book and we get more space cats! My full review is here

  1. Kingdom of the Wicked and Hunted by the Sky are my priority reads for the next couple of months. I liked Stalking Jack the Ripper series, mostly (the first book was my favourite). While I have some issues with the author’s pacing in her stories, I do adore her writing style. It can be pretty immersive. Hunted by the Sky just sounds so fierce and beautiful and magical. Hope you have a lovely November too!
