I loved Notorious by Minerva Spencer. I love bickering in a romance and this book made me laugh throughout.

I really enjoyed NPC’s by Drew Hayes this month. And I’m currently reading Killer Politics by Norman Brewer which is pretty trippy, but also so far extremely interesting!

Just finished J. P Delaney’s Playing Nice and loved it!

The best book I finished this month was probably Cress by Marissa Meyer!

I’m so glad you enjoyed it! You’ll definitely be experiencing a big book hangover :joy: Wasn’t the writing just so beautiful?? I have always been a fan of Schwab and this book is by far my favorite of hers now.

Sooooo beautiful! She’s such a spectacular storyteller. This is the first book I’ve read by her but I definitely will be reading more from her!

Dracula :vampire:‍♂ by Bram Stoker. A great classic leading to many books of the same horror, including the popular “The Walking Dead”.

A Solitude of Wolverines. That was a book that I could not put down.

A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson - so many twists I could not put it down therefore it’s an immersive quick read lol perfect amount of thriller/crime mystery. Very much anticipating the second book, but it’s due not until spring of next year.
