October wasn’t as successful of a reading month as I was hoping it would be, but I still checked some good books off my TBR. I’ve already posted reviews for THREE DARK CROWNS and THE WITCHFINDER’S SISTER, so here’s my October review wrap up for the other books I read this month.
ALL THE MISSING GIRLS by Megan Miranda
This thriller follows Nicolette Farrell as she returns to her small hometown where her best friend, Corinne, disappeared ten years ago. Nic comes back to care for her ailing father, but shortly after she arrives another young girl disappears. Nic decides to find out what happened to the girl and to Corinne all those years ago.
The reverse storytelling (from Day 15 to Day 1) made this book so unique and interesting. This format definitely made solving the mystery far more complex, which I appreciated as a reader since I try (and sometimes succeed) to figure out who did it. If you’re looking for a thriller that will keep you guessing, add this one to your TBR.
ON WRITING by Stephen King
I don’t read much nonfiction, but I absolutely loved this book. In the first half, Stephen King discusses his early life and how he became the writer he is. In the second, he discusses how to be a good writer and the reality of being an author. He gives a no-nonsense account of his highs and lows and practical writing tips. Getting a glimpse inside King’s mind was fascinating, and I learned so much. This book was a memoir and a writing master class all in one.
And that’s all for my October review wrap up! I hope y’all had a successful reading month, and here’s to more great reads coming up in November!
