Hello and Happy October, friends! We’re finally to my favorite time of the year, Halloween!
September was a difficult month reading-wise. I only read and finished three books, started some others, and set them aside because I just didn’t have the focus to read. Going back to work in the beginning of the month, and all of the responsibilities associated with that put a cramp in my reading style.
But I did read some awesome books this past month, so check out my September 2018 Wrap-Up.
Books I read last month
1.The Casquette Girls by Alys Arden
In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, a New Orleans teen discovers that her family has magic in their blood. Adele discovers that her ancestor was part of a coven of witches that trapped vampires in the attic of an old convent hundreds of years before. But Adele has accidentally set them free, and they’re coming after her to break the curse the coven placed upon them.
Keep an eye out for my review of The Casquette Girls coming next Monday!
2. The Cruel Prince by Holly Black
Jude and her twin sister Taryn were stolen from the mortal lands when they were young, after their mother’s former husband (and father to their sister) killed their parents and stole them away to the faerie lands. Having grown up with the faeries, Jude wants to be just like them, brutal and beautiful. She dreams of being a knight in the king’s court. But the youngest prince, Cardan has it out for Jude, and will stop at nothing to make sure she never achieves her goal.

3. The Spellbook of Katrina Van Tassel by Alyssa Palombo
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is a beloved tale, told countless times in film, television, and cartoon form. It’s always been told from the point of view of Ichabod Crane, a school teacher. Never before have we seen the story through the heroine, Katrina Van Tassel’s eyes. In the new release The Spellbook of Katrina Van Tassel
, author Alyssa Palombo has done just that.

These three books bring my total books read for 2018 to 42 so far. I only need to read 8 more to reach my goal (which shouldn’t be a problem).
