October Books:

 

Ozarium (Transitional Delusions #2), by Brick Marlin was the first book I read in October.

I have to admit I enjoyed the first book of the series much more. I had lots of trouble with the pacing and writing on this one.
However, it was a tremendously creative work of fiction and I believe other folks will enjoy it more than me.

I rated it 3/5 stars.

 

I then read Falling by Julie Cohen.

My first journey into the so-called ‘chick-lit’ was very positive. This book featured very real characters, and even though three generations were portrayed I could relate to all of them.
Falling was very thought-provoking and I thoroughly recommend it.

I rated it 4.5/5 stars.

 
 

Hidden (Dragonlands #1), by Megg Jensen had one of the most interesting premises I have read in a fantasy book in a long time.

However, it did not deliver at all. The narrative was chunky, the characters were unlikable and unrelatable, the novel was riddled with clichés and stilted dialogues…
The prose was easy to follow and there were a few interesting concepts. I really wish this would have been better executed. It could have been an awesome book.

I rated it 1.5/5 stars.

 
 

Love You To Death by Caroline Mitchell is the first book in a new crime investigation series.

I think fans of the genre will thoroughly enjoy it.
Personally, I found it a bit lacking, particularly in the character development development.
I still recommend it.

I rated it 3.25/5 stars.
