October Reads 2016

I managed to finish two books in October and I was SO CLOSE to finishing a third. Oh well! I’ll probably have three for next month then. One is a paperback and the other was a kindle freebie. I love getting free books on my kindle, even if they aren’t very good. I’ve made a sizable hit on my personal to-read library at home. Any books that I finish and I don’t love (or weren’t presents), I will consign for 2 dollars. It’s worth getting a little bit of money out of books that you’ve only read once and I have a small apartment. I need to downsize EVERYTHING. The good news is that I’m moving next year! I’ll def show what the apartment looks like empty. Once I complete a room the way I want it to look (styled and furnished and everything), I will show it on my blog. Good things coming next year!

Shopaholic Takes Manhattan (Shopaholic, #2)Shopaholic Takes Manhattan by Sophie Kinsella

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I feel so-so about this book. All of the character development from the last book was all gone. Honestly, it felt like the first book never happened. The ending was satisfying, but she was shopping again. Honestly, I’ll read the third book, but if the plot line is the same: gets in debt and miraculously gets out of debt in the end; I will not read another book. It’s like the same story told over and over again, just slightly different the second time around. I might try a different book from this author if they just keep rehashing the Shopaholic story. But honestly, her mom’s a bit of a shopaholic herself. 🙂

A Spy Like Me (Circle of Spies, #1)A Spy Like Me by Laura Pauling

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I really liked this book in the beginning, but it was almost too long to keep my attention. Add to the fact that the book was all over the place and just really confusing. You don’t know what’s real and what’s not. You don’t really have an idea of what’s going on at all and if you do, the plot totally changes and you are lost again. This book wouldn’t be so bad if you gave the reader just a little bit of information about where the book is leading you to. You think it’s one thing, but it’s another and another. It’s just too all over the place for me to really enjoy it. It was a break from my usual fantasy novels, but I won’t buy the next one in the series. It wasn’t a great start that would make me want to read another unfortunately.
