I’ve finally had time to sit down and film my next 5 book reviews for November. Let’s dive into the details.
Age Category: 2 YA, 3 A
Arguably one of these YA titles will really appeal more to adults … but you’ll have to watch the video to see which one!
Author’s Gender: 3 M, 2 F
Hey, that’s actually pretty close to 50/50. Good for me!
Genres: 1 Horror, 2 Fantasy, 2 Science Fiction
Alright that same one that really appeals more to adults will also actually be an action book … but, again, I’ll direct you to the video to figure out which one.
Indie Authors: 3 Y, 2 N
Oooohhhhh a close to 50/50 split that actually favors indie authors. Awesome!
Total Pages Read: 1,828
Average Pages per Book: 365
That’s good, right? I think that’s good.
Ratings: 2, 3, 3, 3, 4
Maybe it’s me but I noticed recently that the number of 5 star books I’ve read have tapered off considerably. Reading is so subjective!
Book Notes That Didn’t Make the Video
- This was an ARC sent to me by the new publishing company! This title and A Map to the Stars, which I rated on the last set of reviews, were their inaugural titles. Both were released on Halloween 2020.
- Did you watch the movie Crashed? Remember how that seemed to be a punch of unrelated storylines until it all came together? That’s sort of what this reminded me of … but in a seriously dark horror story.
- Support indie authors and get your copy here.
- I borrowed this ebook from my library when it earned the shield for the oldest book on my TBR.
- There are other books in this series, but I can’t see myself bothering with them. Honestly, if you want a book that takes a similar idea … I’ll drop a better recommendation for you.
- See for yourself and get your copy here.
- This was an ebook which the author sent me in exchange for an honest review. I did also “purchase” it when it was free so you may notice my review on Amazon saying “verified purchase” … that’s why!
- That cover is GORGEOUS. Seriously.
- Support indie authors and get yourself a copy of this one here.
- I listened to this one as an audiobook which I borrowed from my amazing library. Have I talked enough about my library to make you go find out if you have a digital library service near you yet?
- Funny that I read this in the same month as If, Then which is also a book that handles the multiverse. If I compare those two titles to each other directly … they’re pretty similar. Yet oddly they are COMPLETELY different. Where If, Then choses a contemporary route where almost no one realizes what is going on this book chooses to take the scientific route where too many people figure it out. Choices, man.
- Anyway, get yourself a copy here.
Tree of Life
- I subscribed to the Indie Book Box before they went out of business. This paperback was one of the books in that box! Funny story, I actually also have the ebook. I bought it before receiving the paperback. I’m SO GLAD I finally read this one.
- The cover of this one is GORGEOUS. It also had one of those titles that you see in the story and get excited about. You know what I mean?
