Blogtober Day 28 - What I Read in October

Hello everyone! I'm so so excited for this post, because well books. Today I'm going to be sharing what I read in October! This is not a very long list, sadly, because I've been trying to get into the gist of things with 4 honors classes, Blogtober, violin, soccer, etc etc etc. Of course, you don't want to hear me rambling about my problems, let's just get into the post.

City of Fallen Angels - Cassandra Clare

If you've been reading my bookish related posts this month, you'll know how obsessed I am with Cassandra Clare and anything TMI.

This book was fairly short, only like 300-400 pages (?) but I still enjoyed it. I would sadly have to say it was my least favorite of the series. Let's call it the Prisoner of Azkaban of The Mortal Instruments. AKA, I thought it was pretty boring and almost meaningless to the plot. The whole book was about Lilith, Lilith this, Lilith that. Sure the ending was pretty important, but other than that, eh.

The only great amazing thing about this book was that SIZZY SIZZY SIZZY. It begins in this book and this book is when I dedicated my entire life to shipping Sizzy.

City of Lost Souls - Cassandra Clare

Ah, what a surprise, the next book in the series. I really liked this book, it was on City of Ashes level for me (not quite as amazing as City of Glass but). I got extremely frustrated with Jace and Clary in this book. And I found myself saying "EW" several times out loud *cough cough* Sebastian ew get off Clary *cough*

Overall, I thought the plot was interesting. AND THE PLOT TWISTS. I feel like that's Cassie's specialty like woah yes. and more Sizzy ahahaha

City of Heavenly Fire - Cassandra Clare

I'm starting to tear up just writing this. OH DEAR WENTZ THIS BOOK. THE FEELS. THE SIZZY THE CLACE THE UGHU. I cried, I laughed, I screamed, this book gave me like 50,000 emotions. It came close to the Deathly Hallows for the most feel filled book of all time.

It was amazingly written and I loved it all. I just- don't even know how to describe how much I loved it, I just lOvEd it.

Scarlet - Marissa Meyer

Okay, now we're back off of Cassie onto something else. I did a mini review of this book before but I think I like it much better. It does get a bit faster, but I still would only give it like 3 maybe 3 1/2 stars.

I also felt like Meyer was kind of piling stuff in there, like a desperate student trying to meet all the requirements on an essay. I got confused, a lot, but that's probably because I'm actually a speed reader and skip over half of the page.

Overall, this book was pretty decent. I'm going to try to read Cress next month, I want to finish Cress and Fairest before Winter comes out :)

The Iron Trial - Holly Black and Cassandra Clare

And we're back to Cassandra. I enjoyed this book. It was pretty interesting. Although, I felt that it met a lot of the YA stereotypes. Typical kid, oh he's different!1!!1, he has 2 other friends: one of his gender, the other the opposite gender, so on and so forth.

I did like the concept of the 'elementals', I thought that was cool. I think some parts were a bit predicatable. Like the ending kind of blew me away (and I thought it was a bit too much) but I felt like Call was going to have something to do with the Enemy all along.

That was all that I read in October! I definitely reccomend all of these books, they're pretty great! Let me know down below if you're read any of these and how you liked them. I'd love to chat :D

Have a booktastic day!
