This month’s favorite things.
I seriously can’t believe this month is over. Times fly when you’re having fun heh (NOT. University’s in, fun’s out). Anyways, let’s talk about some more pleasant things, like my favorites of October, shall we?
A definite favorite of the month is All the Crooked Saints. It’s been my most anticipated release of the year, and it did not disappoint me. I think Maggie’s magical writing really shined through in this book, and I loved it, even though it had some issues. If you want to know more, you can read my review HERE.
Another favorite is Hunger by Roxane Gay and it’s absolutely stunning. I was blown away with how insightful and vulnerable it is and I can’t wait to write a review for it. I have most of the book highlighted because it’s amazing. So so good, highly recommend it.
Favorite TV Show
For the last couple of months, I’ve been obsessed with Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Incredible cast, incredible writing, incredible characters… And it’s so funny. And on top of all that manages to discuss important topics. Highly recommend it.
Stranger Things is here!!! I absolutely loved the second season. Sure, there were things that weren’t perfect, but I adore the characters and the writing and it’s just all around brilliant. Loved it. Also, Steve’s my fave.
I also started Mindhunter and it’s really good. I love Fincher’s cinematography and the way he does his movies (or tv shows) and the plot is really amazing and all the psychology stuff is also very great.
Pink’s Beautiful Trauma came out! I love Pink, she is one of my favorite artists, and while this album isn’t my favorite of hers, it’s still really good music. I just love listening to Pink’s voice again.
I’ve also been loving the new Hurts album, Desire, and it’s rare I like every song on an album, but I like every song on Desire.
Oh, and I’ve been really into The Vamps recently. If you want to listen to the songs I’ve been loving in October, you can find my October playlist HERE.
I have to give it to my discussion on negative reviews. It’s one of my most popular posts ever, plus I really enjoyed writing it and seeing all the feedback it got. So thank you for that. Also, this month’s reading list featuring my fave Nina Zenik, which got attention from Leigh Bardugo herself. Good times.

Each month I have a really random favorite to share. This month it’s American Football. I’ve been so into NFL, it’s ridiculous. I never thought I’d be that person, but I’ve been looking into teams, and players and it’s a really fascinating sport. I still haven’t decided which team is my team, but there’s still a long way to go in the season.
So those are all the things I’ve been loving for the past month! I’d love to hear your favorites of October! Favorite book, movie, show, you name it, I want to know!
