October Mini-reviews

October isn't over yet, but I thought it best to do the mini-reviews now since November will be filled with WriMo madness! I wish I had read a few more books this month since I don't see myself doing a lot of reading in November. But to be fair, I did Beta Read two novels. That counts, right?

Anyway, here's what I read this month

Feedback by Robison Wells. I went to the launch Party for this book and it was awesome! I don't know if any of you have read Variant, but that book had a major cliffhanger so I couldn't wait to get my hands on this one. It didn't disappoint. The tension was high throughout the entire thing and the end, even though it closed up a little, left me wanting more. I highly recommend it!
Proof I was there, with Shelly Brown, and Marion Jensen.

Nightingale by David Farland. I'm going to be doing a special review for this in a few days, but I will say this - Awesome!

Legion by Brandon Sanderson. Okay so this was a Novella, but still worth talking about. It was so good that when it was over, I was crying. Half becasue the ending was powerful and half because I really did not want it to end. The Mistborn novels are long! How did Sanderson get away with a Novella? I need more, Sanderson, you hear me? I'm going to come knocking on your door!! (okay so I'm a little crazy, but really, it was that good.)

The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson. I couldn't just stop with Mistborn. Too many questions were left unanswered. Although I know there's another book, I hadn't expected to be left with even MORE question. You'd think 600 large pages with small print would quell some of the curiousness. Here's the brilliant thing about Sanderson, he has a way of making you think you know what exactly is going on. But the truth blindsides you every time. Masterful writing. Some of the best twists I have ever read. I could guess J. K. Rowling's pattern after a couple of books, but I have a harder time picking his out. Some of them I can guess, but others really give me goosebumps. If you haven't read this series yet, get on it!
