Hey guys, today I bring you my October book haul. I manage to get my hands on 4 books this month. So here they are:
1 | Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng
Adult Contemporary Fiction
I still have yet to read Everything I Never Told You, but this book still piqued my interest because the story takes place in Shaker Heights which is a suburb of Cleveland. And I live not to far from Cleveland. So I a always intrigued when a book takes place not too far away from where I live. Little Fires Everywhere follows two families, The Richardsons and the Warrens. The Mia Warren and her daughter Pearl have just moved into this suburb and are renting a house from the Richardsons. This suburb likes to have order and goes by the status quo, which Mia has a disregard for and a mysterious past. The main focus of the story seems to come once old family friends of the Richardsons attempt to adopt a Chinese-American baby.
2 | Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate
Now when I saw this book and read the summary, I was immediately piqued. This story is based on a true story. I mean who doesn’t love a story inspired by a real story? It just makes the emotions really kick in for me because I’ll sit here like “I can’t believe someone had to actually go through this.” Before We Were Yours focuses on the story of Georgia Tann. Tann was a director of a Memphis-based adoption organization that kidnapped and sold children to wealthy families all over the country.
3 | The Sun and Her Flowers by Rupi Kaur
Now this one I didn’t even bother to read what it entailed. All I saw was Rupi Kaur and I picked it up. I enjoyed her other book of poetry, Milk and Honey, so I just assumed that I will like this one as well. I will most likely end up reading this one very, very soon.
4 | The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware
Suspense Mystery Thriller
I have heard a lot about this one and finally decided to pick it up. This will be my first book be Ruth Ware and I’m a little excited. Okay who I am kidding? I’m very excited, especially once I actually sat down and read the summary. There is journalist, Lo, who writes for a travel magazine and is given the assignment of reading on a luxury cruise. How freaking awesome is that? (Is considering changing career paths. Lol just kidding, but no serious). But then things go terribly wrong when Lo witnesses a woman being thrown overboard one night. Like what in the world is going on here? But that’s not even the worse part. When Lo attempts to tell them that a woman was thrown overboard, no one believes her because everyone is accounted for. Like whoa. Hold on a minute. How in the world is everyone accounted for if she saw a woman being thrown off the ship into the water. SO yes I HAVE TO READ THIS ONE.
And we have come to the end. Did you guys get any new books in October? If so, what were they? Also have you read any of the books I got this month? If you have I would love to hear your thoughts.
Until next time….
