Ali’s October 2019 Monthly Wrap-Up

Linking up with Monthly Wrap-Up Round Up at Feed Your Fiction Addiction.

Happy November everyone!! I just can’t believe the end of the year is here and the holiday season is upon us!!

I read 16 books in October and 10 of those were 5 or 4.5 star reads for me, so that’s a pretty good reading month as far as I’m concerned!
I also participated in TropeAThon 2 this month. I finished 5 out of the 8 tropes. Not bad for 1 week!

The Burning Shadow~ Review

Ali here ~

Title: The Burning Shadow
Series: Origin #2
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Release Date: Oct 8, 2019
Genres: PNR
Blurb:When Evelyn Dasher crossed paths with Luc, she was thrown headfirst into the world of the Lux—only to discover that she was already far more involved in their world than she ever suspected.

Because the Luxen aren’t the only ones with a hidden past. There’s a gap in Evie’s memory, lost months of her life and a lingering sense that something happened, something she can’t remember and nobody is willing to tell her. She needs to find out the truth about who she is—and who she was. But every answer she finds only brings up more questions.

Her search for the truth brings her ever closer to Luc, the Origin at the center of it all. He’s powerful, arrogant, inhumanly beautiful, extremely dangerous…and possibly in love with her. But even as Evie falls for him, she can’t help but wonder if his attraction is to her, or to the memory of a girl who no longer exists.
