Hello everybody! Today, I’m doing another post in the spelling is fun series, and this time it’s October’s turn. I’m quite sad to be running out of months, so keep any eye out for me crowsourcing next year’s words soon… Onto the post!
O is for… Orla and the Wild Hunt– this is a beautiful middle grade about Irish mythology and grief and family, and it’s one of the best things I’ve read this year; I especially loved the pooka. Also, the David Dean cover is BEAUTIFUL, so it’s just as gorgeous to look at as it is to read
C is for… Clementine Florentine– this is such a fun, adorable middle grade contemporary comedy that celebrates the power of poetry. I actually credit it with being the thing that made me start reading more, alongside my adoration of Ella Risbridger. Now I’m never DONE sharing Instagram poetry to my story, tbh…
T is for… Twice Hexed– this is the sequel to one of my favourite YA books ever, and if anything, I think it might even have been slightly better than the original Hexed. They’re hilarious and feminist and full of magic; I need a third one, like, yesterday.
O is for… Once Upon a Fever– I really liked the Ash House by the author, which was a very odd little book, and this one is also quite odd, but the world is brilliantly imagined and brought to life. I love the spooky, dystopian vibes it had going on too!
B is for… Beyond the Mountains– another spectacular sequel! This absolutely blew my mind last year- it was such an incredibly vivid and well told story with amazing twists and turns, and I’m so excited the 3rd book has just come out.
E is for… the Ex Hex– this was a very recent read for me- I read it while on an overnight trip! It’s such a cute, fun, sexy witch romance book, and I have discovered this year that witchy romance books REALLY do it for me, on account of the fact I’ve read two and given both 5 glowing stars.
R is for… Radha and Jai’s Recipe for Romance– this is a YA romance I read last year, and I really liked it. I definitely have to get to the other books by the author someday- she has another YA from like 2019 and also a new adult one everyone is raving about.
Thank you so much for reading! Have you read any of the books I’ve mentioned, or are you planning to? Which books would you have chosen? I’d love to chat in the comments!
