October Wrap-Up

October was pretty busy for me. I had midterms, papers, and speeches, and I suspect that November will be even busier because we are in the second half of the semester now. This wasn't my best reading month, But I really enjoyed what I did read. Quality over quantity right?

My reread of The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
The Murders in the Rue Morgue by Edgar Allan Poe
The Sherlockian by Graham Moore
Dracula by Bram Stoker: Review and Brief History
Gris Grimly's Frankenstein

Favorite Book of the Month: I really loved rereading The Bell Jar, but Gris Grimly's Frankenstein was such a beautiful and poignant adaption of the original that it takes the top spot as my favorite book of the month.

  1. Sounds like you had a really fun month (aside from all those midterms and papers!)

    You've made me curious - I might have a search through some of the epigraphs in my own books, because there are some brilliant ones. There's some great ones through Derek Landy's Skulduggery Pleasant series. :D

    1. Oh really? My brother really likes those books, I might have to swipe them off his shelves in order to check them out!
      I'd love to see some of your picks for your favorite epigraphs!
      thanks for stopping by!
