Hello there, reader! I know I haven’t been updating the blog lately. Well, to tell you the truth, I’m kind of running out of ideas to post and it seems like a crime if I post for the sake of just having something to post, you know what I mean? When I write my blogpost entries, I write them with glee, fondness, and excitement. So whenever I don’t feel like it, I don’t force myself to write. I always remind myself that I don’t maintain this blog for clout, but just for sharing what I love to the world.

Anyway, it’s November first and so here I am again, writing my monthly wrap-up. I haven’t read as much in October because I’ve been busy with a lot of things. My schedule has been jampacked this month and I’m sure that’s how it’s going to be for the rest of the year being it’s the last two months of 2022. It’s crazy fast, I know!

So in October, I’ve read two novels which are both solid reads! I’m really happy that even though I’ve only read two books, both of them are quality reads and have satisfied my thriller cravings.

My first read was Clown in a Cornfield which was quite a roller-coaster! The first two to three chapters were kind of slow for me and sometimes read as a contemporary novel, but I had to remind myself that it’s a YA thriller and I’m no longer part of the intended audience, so that’s that. But as soon as the killer clown appeared and the killings started, I just couldn’t put the book down. I’ve reviewed it here, if you want to check that out.

My second and last read is The Troop which I have been eyeing for quite a long time now and I’m glad that I finally acquired a copy in September and was able to get to it in October. The Troop is another slow burn thriller novel that I really enjoyed. I mentioned in one of my posts that I’m not really a fan of slow burns when it comes to thrillers, but I really enjoyed this one. I must admit that there were times where I struggled to get to the chapters because it’s a bit slow, but I’m so happy that I pushed through because it’s the perfect horror read (trigger warning: body horror). The audiobook also helped me read it more faster, so if you’re interested in this book, you might want to check that out.

So there you have it! All the books I read in October. It’s not much, but as I’ve said, I’m happy that I’ve read two awesome books.

How many books have you read? Any new favorites?
