Hi everyone! I can’t believe it’s already time for another monthly wrap up; this year’s been flying by. It feels like only yesterday it was October! This month’s been super hectic for me; I’ve been studying for looming mocks as well as adding the finishing touches to my university application and spending time with loved ones. Despite this, I still managed to read three books this month, which I think is pretty good!
Siege And Storm by Leigh Bardugo
Thoughts: After reading Shadow And Bone, I was super excited to read this… And it didn’t disappoint! Although I didn’t enjoy it as much as the previous book (I felt the pacing wasn’t quite right) I still really liked it. I loved seeing more of the Grishaverse being unveiled and I think it’s safe to say the world building was just as great as the previous. I also really liked Nikolai, who was introduced in this book, and I couldn’t wait to see more of him in Ruin And Rising!
More Than Mistletoe by The Christmas Collective
Thoughts: The Christmas Collective were kind enough to send me a digital copy of this as well as a gift box, and I absolutely loved their anthology! It features twelve different Christmas stories, each with some romance and mostly with a happy ending. If you’re looking for a warming book to curl up with this winter this is the one – it’s perfect to dip in and out of as well as for getting you into the Christmas spirit!
Ruin And Rising by Leigh Bardugo
Thoughts: The finale of this series was absolutely amazing! I loved finding out more about the Darkling’s past as well as the incredibly dark turns this book took. Although in some ways I didn’t like the ending, in others it was absolutely perfect – I loved seeing things come full circle. Overall I really enjoyed this book and I’m so excited to read Six Of Crows and see another side to the Grishaverse!

I hope you enjoyed this post!
