Welcome to another Monthly Summary on Pages and Tea.
October has been a fairly slow-paced month of reading for me but what I did read I enjoyed. I mostly devoted my reading time to Readers Imbibing Peril, an event that concludes this month. As always I enjoyed participating and reading a spooky-ish book or two.
First up I continued with my Robert Hunter series read. The Executioner is the second book in the series, and the fourth I’ve read so far. These books don’t seem to disappoint, delivering excitement, danger, twists and peril, with an added air of the gruesome. The Executioner was no exception to this. I’m still a little surprised how much I’m enjoying the series as I’ve never really gone for books with this much gore before. Great stories and great characters keep you reading.
Next, a short story, and a new-to-me author in Alma Katsu as I read The Wehrwolf. This packed a lot into a small number of pages, and I would like to read more by this author as I enjoyed this taster, which had an interesting take on werewolves and how they’re made.
Finally, my season of spooky reading ended on a slightly lighter note as I finally picked up the first book in the Practical Magic series. I’ve meant to read these books for a very long time now, so I’m glad to have made a start. I did enjoy this one, and am looking forward to giving the next book a try as it’s the story of the aunts who made brief appearances in this story and it sounds really good.
Away from the books I posted an updated edition of the Finally Fall Book Tag. It’s one I’ve completed for a couple of years now and I like picking out new books to suit the theme.
