I felt so good about this month, until I looked at it really and found that most everything was an audiobook that I got from the Library.
Thanks to my mom I found out that my local Library actually loans out audiobooks that you can download onto your phone and can listen to. Since discovering this I found that I don’t listen to the radio as much anymore, and my reading has been really good this month! I’m hoping that December is fewer audio books and luckily I’m no longer going to have NaNoWriMo to do so that’s helpful.
So what did I read this month?
Stalking Jack The Ripper by XXX
This book follows Audry Rose as she attempts to track down Jack The Ripper, who is tormenting London with a string of murders. Aurdy Rose is also facing societal complications through wanting to learn more about the sciences and human life through her internship with her uncle. She helps him dissect, explore, and understand the corpses of those who have been murdered and report their findings back to scottland yard in order to help with any ongoing investigations. Along with this the passing of her mother has made her family life more difficult. This book was a great book that really has gotten me into that world and timeline and has gotten me really excited. I have given this book 4/5 stars and can’t wait to read the next one.
The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid
The Diabolic follows a humanoid diabolic named Nemisis as she travels to the king’s council in place of the girl she is set to protect in order to save her. After a horrific event Nemisis finds herself in a new place and finding that she’s more human than she thinks and being strong isn’t necessarily just a physical thing. I gave this book 4/5 stars because sometimes I would get lost about what was going on as it was a sci-fi novel. It wasn’t that I didn’t understand what was happening but it took me a little bit to catch up when I did get confused. Overall I loved the stories and characters and a review will be up in the near future.
Heartless by Marissa Meyer
This amazing villain origin story had be in love with the Red Queen and rooting for her throughout the entire book. We follow the Red Queen from Alice in Wonderland before she was the queen, and it makes you feel so much sympathy for her and brings up the idea of everyone having a story. This book got a 4/5 stars from me and will have a more in depth review in the near future.
Sythe by Neal xxxx
I finally got this book done and I honestly don’t know why it took me two months to read because I absolutely love it and hated putting it down. I gave this book 4/5 because not only did I dive into a world that I found really intriguing it brought up a lot of deep questions that got me thinking. The only reason it didn’t get a 5/5 was because of the multitude of technical errors that were in my copy. It took me out of the story very quickly and drove me nuts. Like many of these books there will be a review up soon.
