The Midnight Omen by Marti Melville ★★☆☆☆

 

I’m pretty excited with how it turned out. 10 Books and 1 Dropped!  It was a nice mix too.  If I had to pick one favorite it would be The Secret of Happy Ever After (I keep wanting to type happily). It was one book I was actually most reluctant to pick up but turned out to be amazing!  I’m probably going to try reading more of her books.

DNF

The MartianCinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1)

The Martian by Andy Weir
Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Just had a hard time getting into either book… I’m going to give them both another go when my head is in a different place.



Total Read:
18, though two were short stories and one was a graphic novel.
I did okay on my TBR list for the month, the problem was I got a few extra books from the library to try and had to finish the series or the world would end. This in turn kicked out other books I was going to read 🐱 bad kitty and as always reviews are coming I promise!


 

So how did everyone else do? Read any of our books? Got any recommendations? Tell us in the comments!
