October 2015 - Book Wrap up

Image
This month i was pretty on top of my reviews, so this is basically a link party to all the reviews i wrote throughout the month, because i actually reviewed all the books i wanted to write a full review for. 
Or in other words, those few books that do not have a full review linked, they will be kept to those short reviews on here or those i posted on Goodreads. Either because I honestly don't feel like talking anymore about those books, or because i said everything i have to say about those book here and there is no need for a completely different post to say the exact same thing. 


But mostly it is a link up to the actual reviews other then for a handful of books that i did not review for reasons listed here.


Here we go, in a rather big wrap up for October:

Lets start with the facts: 

I read a total of 20 books this month. Which i personal find pretty good, because i wanted to read 24. I mean, 4 short of the goal? Pretty good. And i did start 2 other books that I have not yet finished.…

Book Review: Gone Girl

Image
So this book took me forever. 
But i did finish it. 

And now i get to ramble. And share my feelings. 
And let you all take part in my feelings. 

Sorry about all the GIFs in this post, but i had so many fantastic ones that just fit. Who knew that it is so much easier to find fitting GIFs for a bad review then for a rave? I certainly did not expect that. 

So lets just get into it!

Book Review: Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

Image
This was the first book I read during the Dewey's 24 Hour readathon.


I mostly put this book on my TBR for that readathon because i knew that i was going to get that book read without problems in one sitting if i wanted to do that. Simply because i enjoy it so much. And i get sucked into the story and just... you know be able to read this thing from start to finish and love it and be motivated to read more after finishing this. 

And while i never done a 24 hour readathon, i did do one readathon before and noticed how important it is to actually start with a book that makes you want to read and read and... you guys get my drift. So that is what i did. And since i never wrote a Harry Potter book reviews, and i am starting my how-ever-many re-read of this series now i thought i do that now. 

And review every book after reading it. Or a few weeks after re-reading it. You know, what ever... I am writing a review at some point for those books so that i finally have an actual real review fo…
