I can't believe October is already over! Time flies! This month has been a little bit of a slow month but I have been in a mystery kick so I read a couple disappearance books and bought three more to read next month. Let me know what books you've read this month!

Don't You Cry // Mary Kubica

If you love a good thriller this author is for you. Ever since Gone Girl came out October's bring the desire to read a good psychological thriller. Its a very defining month for me. I absolutely loved this one. It took me a bit to get into it but it keeps you intrigued the whole book and it satisfies the need for a good twist. I recommend!

 

The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett // Chelsea Sedoti

This was the big library read of the month for October here in Phoenix so I grabbed it on the Overdrive app. I was intrigued because I thought it was going to be a young adult thriller novel. I was slightly disappointed because it wasn't an on the edge of your seat read but it was interesting. It follows the main character, Hawthorne, who met Lizzie Lovett her freshman year of highschool. Now she is older and Lizzie goes missing and she develops an obsession with her life so she chooses to investigate. There are some immature aspects of this story that irritated me but I thought there was good character developed & relationships. Overall a quick read. I would give it 3/5. 

 

Pinterest Power // Jason Miles & Karen Lacey

I was looking for a Pinterest resource because I have been desiring to grow my blog's traffic. This was an excellent beginners introduction but needs to be updated. It came out in 2013 and a lot has changed since those days. It did have a few interesting points of views on how non-profit organizations can gain from using Pinterest. It also addresses the lingo of the site. Overall not a bad read but not necessary if you have already been using it. 

 

Turtles All the Way Down // John Green

I just finished this book last night and I loved it. It isn't my all-time favorite book by John Green but I would probably say it is my second favorite. I just really loved Paper Towns. Anyway I do believe that this book talked about a very very important topic that a lot of people don't understand, mental illness. The main character Ava Holmes struggles with anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder. This is something John Green deals with so His point of view is extremely accurate and I believe will begin opening people's eyes to the seriousness of this. The book also had a bit of a mystery to it, which I always love, and a romantic relationship. I highly recommend!
