A Snarky Reading Recap – October 2019

My reading was a little better this month! It was a weird month – I left my job, spent two weeks at home with my parents, and then started a new job. But because of all the transition, I actually had quite a bit of down time to get reading in. At least, it felt like a lot of time, compared to September. So let’s get into it!

A reminder of the rating scale for these recaps:

Here we go!

A Snarky Reading Recap

Here’s the thing about this iteration – all books read except one already have a published review! So that makes this really easy!

By Any Means Necessary by Candice Montgomery

Oh. My. Goodness. This book was SO GOOD. I didn’t know anything about bees before this book, and the voice was so genuine and entrancing from the first page. Read my review here!

Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

I don’t want to reveal too much here, because the review is coming later this month. But this is what I’ll say – this was a reread for me, and I liked it a lot better the second time. And on audio!

The Widow of Rose House by Diana Biller

I ended up really liking this, even though it was super outside my normal genre preferences! Kind of niche-y though. Read the full review here.

Most Ardently by Susan Mesler-Evans

Woo wee, this book was excellent. It’s the first book that has actually made me want to read Pride and Prejudice, but for real this time. Read the full review here.

Full Disclosure by Camryn Garrett

I. I can’t even. I don’t have the right words. This was one of the best YA contemporaries I’ve ever read. Read the full review here!

Tangled Up in Christmas by Lisa Renee Jones

Meh. My first DNF in a while. You can read why here.

I was sort of all over the map in October, and I got some really good reads out of it! November (and the next several months in general) is probably going to slow down a bit again, but I’m looking forward to the reads I have scheduled!

Happy snarky reading!
