Aaaaand the next month is over - can't believe how fast time passes. Only two more months and this year is over. Let's see how many books I've read in October...




Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood: Great ideas, thought-provoking, unfortunately I couldn't get used to the narrative style and thought that the story was quite slow. 3 stars (only because of the intersting world and ideas)


Blood Rites by Jim Butcher: Fun read, really good part of the Dresden Files. Escpecially since you get to know more about Dresden's and Murphy's life. 4 stars!


Assassin's Apprentice by Robin Hobb: First part of the Farseer trilogy. Loved the writing style and the main character and everything else too :) But everything stands and falls with the protagonist Fitz, because you read A LOT about his everyday life and him growing up. 4,5 stars!


Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J. K. Rowling: Finally continuing the Harry Potter series which I started a few years ago. Really enjoyed reading it, after I've seen the movies. Sure, it's a book for kids, but I liked it :) 4 stars


Glutsand by Kai Meyer: Wanted to finish the trilogy but the book was nothing special. There were some really slow parts and since the big mystery was revealed in the second book, the story wasn't really captivating. I gave this book 3 stars, but now when I think about it, 2,5 would be better.


Allegiant by Veronica Roth: What is it with the last books of trilogies? Like Glutsand I didn't enjoy reading the last book of the Divergent trilogy. But it has nothing at all to do with the chosen ending, I just didn't care for the characters anymore, I thought that the characters behaved completely different than in the previous parts and the story was really slow. Well, but now I know the ending - that's something :) 2,5 stars.
