What did I read this month ? #4

Okay, let me tell you: October was not a good reading month for me. I think it was the first time I stopped reading so many books halfway through them because they were boring and did not have a point. I also noticed that I struggle a lot with YA books and it’s really not my thing. I’m definitely too old for teens characters that can be so frustrating and boring. But I still wanted to talk about the few books I did achieve. Spoiler alert: I did not fall in love with any of those books, sadly.

Because it was October, you’ll find some spooky books

And the trees crept in by Dawn Kurtagich
This was probably one of the strangest book I've read in my life. It follows two sisters who run away from their parents' and have a refuge in their aunt's old house. The atmosphere is really strange and dark and yet you feel that something is off, something is different and not normal. The way it is written is quite amazing as you know the whole time that there is something going on and yet you can't really put your finger on it. The strangeness of the books is written in a way that it's seen as normal, and it makes you question the sanity of the characters, but your own definition of normality and weirdness.
It was an interesting book to read and the start and ending were quite good, however I thought that it was too long for what it was. Of course, the long time they wait is supposed to make us impatient and wait as well but it becomes boring. That's one of the biggest problem I found with this book.

 
 


Crooked House by Agatha Christie
I have a mom that owns around forty book of this brilliant author, and it’s only my second book by her.  And this one was probably not the best of all. I saw it as an opportunity to read more of her work, but I was not crazy about this book in the end. The title gave me the spooky vibes I needed, but it stopped there. Nothing scary, nothing horror like, just a detective view on an old man death that has been murdered by someone inside his family. Of course, you wait ‘til the end to finally have the moment of truth and it was not a deception at all, but the story itself was not much fun to read. As for her writing, it’s simply so good. She seems so modern while given us the vibe of her time (which I love). And it has been quite interesting in that way, but that’s all.

The Witch of Willow Hall by Hester Fox
Probably the best book I’ve read in October even if I was not crazy about it. It was a mix between “Pride and Prejudice” and some horror (not so scary) book. I actually like that it was not scary, despite the fact of having ghosts and witchy bits in it. This book has depth in it, you have a true story with different relationships that are all quite interesting, frustrating, annoying and more. Any time there is a book with a bit of romance/historical stories/mystery: I love it. And I would recommend the book – which is perfect for a cozy day – to anyone wanting to read something interesting, but that won’t change their lives.

 


That’s all for October. If you want to know more about what I read, you can follow me on Goodreads. Anyway, what have you read in October that had spooky vibes? I’m hoping to have a bit more books to share with you next month.

I'm 24, I've got freckles (you get it now) and I'm a grumpy French, sometimes, who writes in English. I love books, cats, le barbu, pizzas and Dicaprio.
