October 2020 Wrap-Up

Happy Halloween! Things are a little bit different this year, but I hope that everyone has a wonderfully spooky day filled with lots of sugar regardless. My October has been a very packed one, and it feels like it lasted a minute and a year at once. I started the month really strong reading-wise, but then…I got a job! Finally! I started in the middle of the month, so I haven’t been reading as much since then. The books I did read at the beginning of the month were a bit of a mixed bag of tricks and treats, but overall I was quite lucky to have enjoyed them all for the most part. Here they are:

I finished Kingdom of the Wicked very early on in the month, and I was a little bit conflicted about it. There were parts that I enjoyed, and some that I was underwhelmed by, but overall I gave it three stars. I actually just posted my review of it this week.

I’d had The Bell Jar on my TBR for years, and finally read it over a weekend this month. I’m really glad I read it, and I gave it four stars.

The Five was my favourite book of the month. It tells the stories of the women killed by Jack the Ripper in a very respectful light, without focussing on speculation over who killed them, and I loved that.

A quick recap of some of my favourite October posts/ reviews written:

What did you read this October? Are there any blog posts that you’re particularly proud of from this month? Link them in the comments!

  1. Happy Halloween! 👻 Congrats on getting a job!
    I will have to add The Bell Jar to my TBR. The only writing I have read from her is The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath. Also, The Five sounds really, really good. I will have to add that one to my TBR too!
