Wrap Up: October 2021

Hello readers! October is gone too fast, and now everywhere it’s already Christmas…

During October, I managed to read 11 books, with a DNF.

5 stars:

Only Amelia Fang and the Half Moon Holiday have reached 5 stars this month! I love this series so much!

4 stars:

I need my monster is a lovely illustrated children’s book perfect for Halloween, but also full of friendship and colors. Children will love it!

The fifth book in the Redmond and Haze series is Murder in the grave. I liked it much more than the previous two volumes, the mystery is really intriguing.

3 stars:

If you are a fan of true crime stories, you had to know the story of JonBenét, in JonBenét: inside the Ramsey murder investigation, you will find a lot of information, theories and suspects. It was interesting, but too long for my liking.

I didn’t realize that Buried beneath the boarding house was the story of Dorotea Puente until I began the book. It’s a macabre story, but very well written.

2 stars:

I was expecting more from Crane, also, the cover is great but it doesn’t remind me of the legend of Sleepy Hollow.

You can read my review of The Women of Blackmouth street here.

The pumpkin field has an amazing cover, but it’s a super short story, written in more than one language, definitely too short.

1 star + DNF:

Confessions is my DNF of the month.

You can read my negative review of The Spirit Engineer here.

What can I say about A House at the bottom of a lake? Two teenagers are searching for a place for their first time together. A House. Completely furnished. At the bottom of a lake. And do you think this is a good idea? Malerman already failed me with Bird box, this is the confirmation that he’s not an author I like.

And that was my reading month, full of horror/thriller and true crime books.

What about you? Have you read some great books this month? Tell me in the comments!
