October, well you have been one hell of a month even if I do say so myself. It has gone by so fast that Christmas is right around the corner. I suppose that happens when you get to the pointy end of the year though, everything seems to just accelerate before your very own eyes and then before you know it, it’s New Year’s Eve and you’ve already spoilt your resolutions. Well October has been great. It was my birthday, so I got a tonne of books to read out the end of this year and I can’t wait see how November pans out.
At the moment I am reading ‘The Loneliest Girl in the Universe’ by Lauren James.
I got this book as a birthday present from my mother and sister and I have to be honest with you all, I was a bit apprehensive when I realised it was a Lauren James book as I have one of her other ones and I couldn’t get into it enough to read it. But this book is completely different. I am about half way through and am loving it.

Kate Harker and August Flynn are the heirs to a divided city, a grisly metropolis where the violence has begun to create real and deadly monsters.
