Books Read in October

October turned out to be a really busy month, which somehow didn’t stop me from reading a ton, but hurt me in the writing posts and reviews department. Overall it feels pretty good reading eight books, so I’ll just take the win and promise you guys book reviews soon for the books read!

  1. You finished the whole Shatter Me series this month while the first book was a DNF for me. It’s been on my TBR for SO long and I finally picked it up this month. I listened to the audiobook so I’m not sure if I would have enjoyed it more reading it rather than listening. Didn’t have a problem with the narrator; she was good! But the story itself, or lack thereof, frustrated me. Are you sure this is about a dystopian, supernatural/magical society and not a angsty teen-romance (that was very forced)? The characters weren’t very appealing either. I felt that everything was TOO convenient – pretty girl (the chosen one, who is somehow still pretty and has a great figure despite being basically starved for almost a year) and two attractive problematic guys who may or may not actually care about the “greater good.” Also, the “I’ve loved you since I saw you” is just so cringe-y and unbelievable. Maybe I’ll try again if I come across a hard-copy in the library. Should I give this another try?

    1. The series definitely has its issues, but the second book got me. In the end its a more of a guilty pleasure than a series that I would whole heartedly recommend. What you said about the first book hits it on the nail, I think I continued because I had the second and third book, which give us more Warner, who seems to get more and more fleshed out as the books go, though I had to ignore the weird/messed up things he did in book one. This is one I’m working on a series review for, so definitely keep an eye out!
