First of all a big round of applause for Kelly @ From Belgium With Book Love and Danielle @ The Reading Closet for creating Orentober month and giving us a whole month to share our love for both a fantastic publisher and a fantastic collection of books! Make sure to visit the posts of both lovely ladies to get a proper idea what #Orentober is all about, and don’t be afraid to join the fun and celebrate all things Orenda Books related during October! #TeamOrenda
I know I’m still kind of new when it comes to Orenda Books, but better late than never right? And what I can also say is that each and every one of the twelve titles (yes, I have counted them) I have had the pleasure to read so far was absolutely brilliant. Two elusive 5 star ratings (I only hand out a couple a year for absolute favorites, think of them as an A++), nine 4,5 star ratings (which is basically a 5 star rating for anyone else) and one solid 4 star rating… Talk about a 100% success rate! ❤ If you are curious about which titles I already read and what I thought of them, you can find a full list and links to my reviews below in the order I read them.
Deep Blue Trouble – by Steph Broadribb // Exquisite – by Sarah Stovell // The Courier – by Kjell Ola Dahl // Breakers – by Dough Johnstone // Call Me Star Girl – by Louise Beech // Six Stories – by Matt Wesolowski // Wolves At The Door – by Gunnar Staalesen // The Closer I Get – by Paul Burston // Block 46 – by Johana Gustawsson // Keeper – by Johana Gustawsson // Blood Song – by Johana Gustawsson // Snare – by Lilja Sigurdardottir
So many fantastic titles! And I’m convinced Orentober will give me even more new favorites. ❤ Soooo… The big question is: what do I have planned for Orentober month? First of all, I’m part of the blog tour for both Cage (my stop October 4th) and Little Siberia (my stop October 12th). I will also publish my review for Trap the day before my blog tour stop, as I’m binge reading this series at the moment. (The review for the first book Snare will be up in a few days and I might have already finished reading Trap by the time this post goes live as well…) I will also most likely join a #WesolowskiWednesday edition with Hydra and maybe even Changeling if I have the time. And of course I’m picking up my next Louise Beech read as well: The Lion Tamer Who Lost. And what about a dose of bounty hunter with the Lori Anderson series? I read the second book last year, and I’ve been wanting to (re)read the whole series from the start ever since. Likewise, a couple of other Orenda titles are waiting impatiently to be read as well… Below a picture of my personal Orenda TBR collection!
Are you joining #Orentober next month? What are your favorite Orenda titles? Which Orenda title on my TBR do you think I should read first?
(Impossible question, I know. xD)
