Books Read = 18
18 again! Three months in a row, woo-hoo. I’ve been listening to a ton of audiobooks (8 out of 18 this month) and went on a bit of a fairytale binge following my re-read of A Court of Thorns and Roses. That series was just as good on audio — and even better the second time around.

Best of the Month: The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater ★★★★★
I had been holding off on reading this one for ages and after recently discovering my undying love for Steve West’s narration, I bought the audible version and oh man… I loved this so much.
Biggest Surprise: The Bloody Chamber and Other Stories by Angela Carter ★★★★
I’d been wanting to read something of Angela Carter’s for ages and I was on a massive fairytale kick so I started this one spontaneously. I need everything else of hers, immediately.
Biggest Disappointment: Beauty and the Beast: Lost in a Book by Jennifer Donnelly ★★
I had so much hope for this one! It sounded so cute! But it just didn’t work for me at all.
