Quick Lit

October 2022

I’ve been reading so much, but I don’t always feel like writing a full review for everything. I was inspired by Modern Mrs. Darcy’s Quick Lit posts, as well as Hannah at So Obsessed With‘s monthly Quick Lit posts, and decided to do something similar as a way to briefly discuss the books I read in a month but don’t write full reviews for.

I read another 11 books in October, which is not as many as I had been hoping for, but I also ended up DNFing a couple of books last month as well.

I’ve reviewed five of my October reads here on the blog already:

Lovelight Farms, BK Borison;

I’m the Girl, Courtney Summers;

The Nineties, Chuck Klosterman;

Belladonna, Adalyn Grace; and

Love in the Time of Serial Killers, Alicia Thompson.

I DNFd two books last month: The Witch in the Well (Camilla Bruce) and Little Eve (Catriona Ward). My interest was always waning, I never really felt pulled into either story, and I didn’t get excited to pick them back up when I put them down.

Here are my thoughts on everything else I read in October:

Demon in the Wood, Leigh Bardugo and Dani Pendergast (owned) – 4⭐

The story was good, but the illustrations were fantastic. A beautiful graphic novel.

The Weight of Blood, TIffany D. Jackson (ARC) – 3⭐

I kept putting off reviewing this one because I didn’t love it and I wasn’t sure what more to say. I loved the premise and the horror element, but the podcast framing really didn’t work or add anything to the story for me.

The Kiss Curse, Erin Sterling (owned) – 4⭐

This is the second book in the series, and better than book one. I loved the romance and Gwen was a great protagonist. But the real star for me was Sir Purrcival!

Big Mushy Happy Lump, Sarah Andersen (library) – 4⭐

Cute and funny!

Herding Cats, Sarah Andersen (library) – 5⭐

Hilarious and relatable! My favourite of her books.

And Yet: Poems, Kate Baer (ARC) – 4⭐

I liked this collection a lot! I’ve got to go back and read her previous work.

    The Word Is Murder

    I wound up enjoying this book so much that I immediately bought the rest of the books in the series and read them all one right after the other!
