Today I have a review of an exciting October release for you. Beasts Made of Night is a Nigerian inspired fantasy following Taj, an aki who can kill sin-beasts and eat sins. This was such a unique read and I definitely recommend to fans of YA fantasy!

My first read of October was Because You Love To Hate Me, a book with 13 tales about villains. I thought it was the perfect book for October and Halloween. As with all short story anthologies, there were some stories I loved and some that I really did not. Overall though my ratings averaged out at 4.07 stars, so I can definitely say I liked this book.
