“October, Romeo and Juliet on Halloween.”
the theme for october is: BEST PARANORMAL NOVEL
now here is the thing. as it turns out, i do not read many paranormal books. like none at all, haha. which is also new to me. but i went through a lot of lists and there were books, that i have never heard of. since i was never a huge fantasty reader and just started this year with this genre, i am not surprised, that i haven’t gotten to many paranormal novels. BUT, yes, i found a fantasy book, that was also shelved as paranormal. win win, because i have read this novel and i loved it so much. i am talking about “this savage song” by v.e. schwab. but i am not going to pick that one, because there is one, that i loved even more. and that’s this one, which is my pick for the month:
“our dark duet” by v.e. schwab
after reading “this savage song” i preordered “our dark duet” immediately. i loved the first book, but i had some minor issues with it. but i was looking forward to the sequel of this duology. so, when “our dark duet” came, i sat down and read it in one sitting. yes, i read this book straight with no breaks. i loved it. i loved everything about it.
the plot went into a direction, that i didn’t expect and there was so much action, that i couldn’t put down the book. then there were the characters, that i started to love in “this savage song”. there were twists and turns, there were revelations, there were feelings and all in all i just loved this book so much. the end hit me right in the heart and i didn’t know what to do with myself after reading this book, but it was a perfect conclusion to the duology.
i am so glad, that i could pick this book for this month, because it is one of my favorite duologies, so yeah, that’s why i pick this. 🙂
that’s it guys. unfortunately i don’t have many other books to talk about, because well, it seems i don’t read many paranormal books. let me know, if you read paranormal novels and what your favorites are! 🙂
