Welcome to my slightly late October TBR! I know we’re already a week into October, but I wanted to stay consistent with TBR posts because I have an idea forming for something to do next year. I’ve been feeling a little slumpy because I haven’t finished hardly any of the books I’ve been picking up, so this will be a little bit of a shorter TBR this month!
I don’t want to box myself in to any two specific books, but I just recently hauled quite a few books that would fit, and I did a post about good spooky books so I’m planning on reading at least two of those that I haven’t read yet! Right now I’m leaning towards Anna Dressed in Blood and Teeth in the Mist, but that could always change!
I started this one in September but I haven’t finished it yet, and I don’t want to add it to my ever growing pile of I-was-really-enjoying-this-book-but-for-some-reason-I-never-finished-it. It’s giving me some major Assassins Creed: Origins vibes, but that could also be because I’ve been OBSESSED with that installment into the Assassins Creed franchise lately. It just feels like a lot of Ancient Egypt and Ancient Rome, with some Ancient Greek thrown in too!
I was so kindly sent a finished copy of this book from the publisher, and I immediately started reading it when I got it a few days ago! Right now I’m only about 60 or so pages in and while I’m a little confused about the angels, I’m starting to understand the magic more and I’m so curious about what Liliath’s plan is! I’ve seen quite a few reviews that mention this is inspired by The Three Musketeers, which even 60 pages in I can already see the resemblance even though I haven’t read the original story!
I have a copy of this book in mass market paperback because all the other editions were quite expensive everywhere I was looking, and while I don’t mind reading mass market paperbacks, I have found that since I started blogging and especially bookstagramming, I’ve been getting more paperbacks and hardcovers because it’s easier to pair them for photos, so I have more of them to read than I do of the mass market versions. Then one day I was browsing BookOutlet (this is totally not sponsored, but BookOutlet should totally sponsor me! *wink wink*) and I found the entire trilogy in hardcover for $6 a piece and I knew that I needed to buy them, and now that they’ve arrived I want to read them so badly!
Firstly, you have no idea how many times I’ve gone to write Jay and Amie’s names and have flipped their last names. It’s truly a tragedy. Secondly, I have been in a bit of a book hangover from this series and the only way to fix it will be to finally finish the series. I know I’m going to be so sad once this series is over, but my need to know what happens outweighs my sadness!
