October Recap + Flights of Fantasy Update

Life lately
I am so ready for November. New month, fresh new slate. The best moments of this month were undoubtedly my cousin's wedding (post coming soon!), apple picking with the fam and dinners I was able to squeeze in with friends. But otherwise, things have been pretty stressful. (Do I say that a lot? Ugh, I don't mean to.) So I'm looking forward to the outings I already have planned in November, lazy weekends, Thanksgiving and more!

Read but not reviewed
  • The Sun and Flowers by Rupi Kaur - 4 stars; Reading Kaur's debut collection last year was what got me into poetry again. I was excited for this follow up and it did not disappoint.
  •  I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith - 4 stars; it was a bit of a slow start for me but then I fell in love with the protagonist's charming and innocent perspective on the world around her. 
  • Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo - 4.5 stars; Leigh can do no wrong. I loved her take on Wonder Woman, Helen of Troy and how she incorporated other well-known myths.
  • Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater - 4 stars; I finally decided to read this book after some encouragement from Alexa and DJ and I liked it a lot more than I expected to! The beginning was touch-and-go but then I was hooked. (I was told to stop with this book though.)

Flights of Fantasy

I read 2 fantasy books, which include: Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao and Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo.
