Dani and Jessie's October Wrap Up

Sunday, November 1, 2015
October is over! Long live November! November is my (Jessie's) favorite month. It has my favorite holiday -- Thanksgiving. Also, back home, this is when the snow really starts to fall. It feels like winter to me. And oh yeah, it's also my birthday month.

"Be dangerous." #todaysread is #sixofcrows by #leighbardugo. I loved the first Grisha series but this new one might be even better. 😍 Kaz, Inej, and Jesper are already some of my favorite characters from 2015 • •#bookstagram #books #reader #bookish #instabook #igreads #igbooks #currentlyreading #tbrpile #pagesfordays #epicfantasy #bookworm #bibliophile #bookcovers #whatimreading #grishaverse

Ha ha September, suck on this: two more books and a thousand more pages. And one of those books was Pirate by Fabio. Which I finished and no one died, the greatest Halloween miracle since the Great Pumpkin.

Favorite Quote: 

“Jesper knocking his head against the hull and cast his eyes heavenward. "Fine. But if Pekka Rollins kills us all, I'm going to get Wylan's ghost to teach my ghost how to play the flute just so that I can annoy the hell out of your ghost."

Brekker's lips quirked. "I'll just hire Matthias' ghost to kick your ghost's ass."

"My ghost won't associate with your ghost," Matthias said primly, and then wondered if the sea air was rotting his brain.”
