October was a pretty busy and not so good month for me, I had quite a few nervous breakdowns this month which lead to a drop in my reading also I was super busy. I failed at Blogtober this year but I am gonna try again next time and I’m gonna smash it.
I read 2 novels and 4 manga this month, finished two seasons of Peaky Blinders, watched an anime and finally watched Love, Simon as well.
Grave Peril by Jim Butcher (Book 4 of the Dresden Files) – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
I read this in September but I forgot to include it in the September post so here it is. This was a pretty intense novel, Harry Dresden really grew as a character in this one, so many things happened and the end of the novel had me at the edge of my seat. I thoroughly enjoyed it
Summer Knight by Jim Butcher (Book 5 of The Dresden Files) – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
From the very start, I was hooked on to the action, the Fairy element was pretty intriguing and the way things unfolded in the book really changed my opinion on fairies but nevertheless I enjoyed it. Harry has to go through a lot in this one but he pulled through, the world of the Dresden Files was expanded immensely and the White Council was finally introduced, I was so happy to meet them. There wasn’t even a second of this book that I didn’t enjoy, pick up this series you won’t regret it
Vicious by V.E. Schwab (Villains #1) – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
This was my first V.E. Schwab book and it didn’t disappoint. I took a long time to finish this book, I savoured every second of it. It was intense with a unique writing style and world, although I’ll admit that I was a little bored in the start but after we jumped into the experiment part, I was hooked. I really enjoyed seeing how things turned out and the end was so damn satisfying, I literally yelled out a yes when the book ended, that’s how happy I was with the end. Vicious is left me with high expectations for Vengeful and I have a feeling I’m gonna love it as well.
Since I have read quite a few mangas this month I’m gonna talk about them in short
Last Game by Shinobu Amano – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
This was a reread for me and it as cute as it was when I read it the first time but whilst reading it I found myself zoning out. It is really good manga but not as great as I initially thought. Both the MC’s are super cute and their relationship is pretty entertaining, I enjoyed reading it.
Hibi Chouchu by Shuu Morishita – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
Another reread for me, I read this for the 3rd time and I loved it as much as I did the first time around. It is brilliant, not only does it follow a cute romance it also has great character development. The story I pretty generic, it’s the manga style and the characters who make it alive and amazing
Tsubaki-Chou Lonely Planet by Mika Yamamori – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
This is an ongoing manga series and it bloody brilliantly, I don’t really know how to explain why I love, I can just say that I do. The story is fun, the relationship is well created, the characters are hot and the style of drawing is marvellous, the expressions and emotions and feel of a certain scene is pen down so well that it feels unbelievable (how can someone be so good at drawing?) also Mika Yamamori is the mangaka of one of my all time favourite manga Hirunaka no Ryuusei.
Gakuen Babysitters by Hari Tokeino – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
I would give it a million stars if I could, this is the most freaking adorable manga ever. It follows a high schooler and his toddler brother who after losing their parents are adopted by the chairman of a prestigious school and in return the high school boy has to work in the daycare of the school. I would happily trade lives with him if it meant I get to spend everyday with 5 adorable toddlers and one cute little baby, this manga and even the anime made my ovaries explode with very freaking chapter, I don’t know why this isn’t famous yet, because it should be and I need a second season asap.
Peaky Blinders Season 2&3 – 8/10
Every season keeps on getting intense, with the kind of stuff Tommy gets himself and his family into is insane and the way he gets himself out is amazing. Every season keeps on getting intense and I love it but it’s an 18+ show so beware
Love, Simon – 9.5/10
I finally watched it this month and I freaking loved it, it was epic. There were a few things that annoyed me, like the changes the made but other than that whey the is freaking amazing, even though I knew what was going to happen I was still crying and jumping whilst watching it. I have watched it 3 times since and I don’t think I’m gonna stop anytime soon. Love, Simon is everything
Gakuen Babysitters – 10/10
I wanna say the same thing I said before so I won’t repeat myself, just watch the anime, just do it. It’s amazing
