Elizabeth Lavenza hasn’t had a proper meal in weeks. Her thin arms are covered with bruises from her “caregiver,” and she is on the verge of being thrown into the streets . . . until she is brought to the home of Victor Frankenstein, an unsmiling, solitary boy who has everything–except a friend.

Victor is her escape from misery. Elizabeth does everything she can to make herself indispensable–and it works. She is taken in by the Frankenstein family and rewarded with a warm bed, delicious food, and dresses of the finest silk. Soon she and Victor are inseparable.

But her new life comes at a price. As the years pass, Elizabeth’s survival depends on managing Victor’s dangerous temper and entertaining his every whim, no matter how depraved. Behind her blue eyes and sweet smile lies the calculating heart of a girl determined to stay alive no matter the cost . . . as the world she knows is consumed by darkness.

🌸 Hi babes! I hope you’re having a great day. Today I bring you my TBR of the month of October, where I tell you about the readings that I’ve planned for this month. As you know, the previous month, although I enjoyed the ones I read, it wasn’t my best reading month, so I’m excited for this month, because I want to read it ALL. I’m definitely in the mood to read a lot, in fact, ALREADY FINISH MY FIRST BOOK OF THE MONTH!, yes, I know, who am I, right ?. But still, I do not want to exaggerate with this because, you know, I can fail again and that would be humiliating lol. What I’ll be doing this month is simply read what I can, I will not pushing myself that much, but since I feel very eager to read and have had this successful start, I’ve prepared a great list of which I’m very excited, and I can’t wait to show you.

I have 8 books in my TBR for this month: I have a couple of ARCs, some New Releases, I’ll be Finishing a series, a Re-reading and a Short Novel. I’m super excited to tell you what I’ll be reading, but first I wanted to mention that some of the books that will be in this TBR are the same ones that have been in the previous one but I could’t read them, so I wanted to add them here. Now, without further ado, let’s START!🌸

🎃 Hi babes! I hope you’re having a great day. Today I bring you my TBR of the month of October, where I tell you about the readings that I’ve planned for this month. October, as we all know, is the the horror month and another thing that I like as much as watching horror movies is reading books with a spooky or mystery theme, so that’s exactly what I’ll be doing this month. I think I created a great list, which has me very excited, but in fact, I planned a totally different one at first, but then I changed my mind at the last moment and I think this list fits much better with the theme of this month.
I did such a good job with my reading in September, that I honestly feel excited about adding a little more books than usual to my list this month, I’ll not be pushing myself so hard, but I want to have several choices in case I can read them all, which is always the goal, but even if I can’t, it will be fine. I have 7 book in my TBR: some ARCs, New Releases, another re-reading, which I’m really enjoying doing and an exciting surprise!🎃

🌸I’ll be having vacations this month, I think for 2 weeks,they’ll start on the 16th, we plan this with my boyfriend during the year and I’ll be taking a break from the blog for that weeks. Don’t get me wrong, I love doing this and this blog is my baby, but every year I always need to have some time for myself, it helps me a lot to rest, for myself and for my mental health of course. But then I’ll return as always, I’ll be obviously reading during those days that I’m not here and when I return I’ll tell you everything about it 🌸 Continue reading “October TBR [2018]”
