October 2016 Reviews


I'm going to be on a plane soon, so I figured I'd post this now. Also, I'm procrastinating on packing.


Anyway, this month went so much better than last month. I actually wrote stuff! I'm still not quite caught up - I have two audiobook reviews I need to write - but I'm a lot closer than I was. Granted, this vacation will put me way behind again. I plan on reading as much as possible.


I ended up reviewing 8 books, one of which was an audobook, 2 shows, and one movie.


My favorite covers:


Dragonbreath - Ursula Vernon 


He looks so happy about being attacked by that kraken.


KIZUMONOGATARI: Wound Tale - Cristina Vee,Eric Kimerer,Keith Silverstein,Vertical Music,NisiOisiN 


I really disliked this audiobook, but I love this cover's intense red.


Hospital Station - James White 


If that dinosaur's feet were on the ground, I don't know that I'd like this one as much. The "floating dinosaur" aspect was part of what made me want to read this sooner rather than later.
