Here we are at the end of October, 10 months though 2017 already, it’s crazy how fast this year is passing by! Here’s my bookish October update!
- La Belle Sauvage by Philip Pullman
- Noughts + Crosses by Malorie Blackman
- Knife Edge by Malorie Blackman
- Checkmate by Malorie Blackman
- Double Cross by Malorie Blackman
I was reasonably good this month with buying books, I HAD to get the special edition of La Belle Sauvage and I don’t regret it at all! I already had the first three books in the Noughts and Crosses series but when I saw a set of all four for £6 I grabbed them, I like the multi coloured covers and now I’ll have a full matching set. I did buy a few other books but they’re for Christmas presents so they totally don’t count…
- Now You See Me
- Rules of Rain
- Dying Breath
- The Wicked Cometh
- In a Cottage, In a Wood
- Need to Know
- Don’t Tell A Soul
- All The Wrong Chords
- Dying Day
- How Do You Like Me Now
I also received a copy of The Confession from Quercus and The Things We Learn When We’re Dead from the author Charlie Laidlaw.
I also received a copy of Into the Valley which I won in a Goodreads giveaway, and Editing Emma which I won in a giveaway as part of the SundayYA twitter chat.
This month I’ve posted the following reviews – Click on any of the titles

I’m also keeping track of all my reading challenges –
Goodreads Challenge: 68/50
The total number of books read is still going up, but not at quite the same pace as before!
British Books Challenge 2017: 42/12
I really need to vary my reading a little bit! Admittedly there are a huge number of extremely talented British authors but I probably should find some authors from outside Britain, Ireland and the US
2017 Cloak and Dagger Challenge: 38/15
Still reading plenty of crime! Another thing I should probably branch out from!
2017 New Release Challenge: 52/30
I love the fact I’ve already read enough new books to have read one a week for the year. It does mean I have a backlog of older books beginning to stack up
2017 New To Me Challenge: 51/12
Lots of new authors, and series have been read this year!
2017 Netgalley & Edelweiss Challenge: 46/25
And this is the reason I have so many new releases read, my ratio is still shockingly low though because I keep seeing other things and clicking request…
