October 2020 Reads

This post contains affiliate links. Please read our Disclosure Policy for additional info.

Another month has flown by. My reading has continued to slow down, but I think part of the problem is that I haven’t been reading very good books. Most of my books this month were 3 star, “okay” reads. We are almost half-way through November and I am going to continue my tradition of reading some holiday books over the next month and a half! These will hopefully be light, quick, enjoyable reads! I’m sharing my October 2020 reads with Steph and Jana’s monthly Show Us Your Books linkup.

Darling Rose Gold by Stephanie Wrobel – (Mystery/Thriller – March 2020) – A twisted mother/daughter relationship resulting in a dark and disturbing read. I honestly couldn’t decide who was crazier!


Get a Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert – (Contemporary Romance – November 2019) A cute romance book about a chronically ill nerd and a red-headed apartment super/artist. I found the couple to be so awkwardly cute. A fun, light read.

42731451. sy475

Whisper Network by Chandler Baker – (Contemporary/Mystery -July 2019) A group of women working in corporate America take a stand when one of their male colleagues will likely become the next CEO. This book is a mixture of the #metoo movement and a mystery. However, I found it to be a very slow read.

You Are Not Alone by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkaner – (Mystery/Thriller – March 2020) A lonely girl witnesses a suicide. Then she meets sisters who befriend her and help her turn her life around. But is it too good to be true?

4 Stars


Feels Like Falling by Kristy Woodson Harvey – (Contemporary Romance – April 2020) – Two strangers end up helping each other out and forming a deep friendship. With likable characters, this was a fun, light read.

Goodnight Beautiful by Aimee Molloy – (Thriller/Mystery – October 2020) A newlywed couple move from the city to upstate NY. The The husband, a therapist sees his patients in the perfect office, in the basement of the house. He doesn’t know that a vent in the ceiling allows everything that is said to be heard in the house. Then one stormy night, he ends up disappearing. This thriller had lots of twists that made for an enjoyable read.


One To Watch by Kate Stayman-London – (Contemporary Romance – July 2020) A plus-sized fashion blogger becomes the next star of a Bachelorette-esque show. Are the guys there for the “right reason” and can she find love? As a fan of the Bachelor/Bachelorette series, I found this to be a fun read.

  1. I have never seen an episode of The Bachelor/Bachelorette, and I also thought One to Watch was a very fun read – I think it says something about the book that fans and non-watchers alike of the series all really enjoy reading it! And I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed the new Aimee Molloy book – I really liked her previous one, and I just got my library hold on this one, so it’s up next!

  2. I read Goodnight Beautiful this month too. It was definitely different. I thought it was going a lot of different ways but not the way it went.

  3. Feels like falling was such a fun and light read; I found it so heartwarming that their friendship bloomed from a desire to truly help one another.

  4. You had an author stop by and read your review- that’s amazing!
    Light and fun are where I’m at right now, so I’ll be moving Get A Life closer to the top of my TBR!

  5. Yeah, mediocre reads can really put a dent in my reading mojo too, especially lately since it’s pretty nonexistent! I have Get a Life, Chloe Brown but haven’t read it. I did read Darling Rose and overall enjoyed it. And honestly, they both are crazy and messed up. Good Night Beautiful sounds intriguing, adding it to my TBR!

  6. I picked up One to Watch for the same reason and it wasn’t bad. Its hard to read about it in a book rather than watch it on tv, ha!

  7. I’ve heard good things about One to Watch. I don’t watch the Bachelor/ette so it’ll be all fresh to me!

  8. I’m halfway through reading Get A Life, Chloe Brown right now. It feels good to read a light-hearted romance.

  9. I can’t decide if I want to read Rose Gold or not. Too much crazy can get annoying. 😉 Thanks for sharing and enjoy your month. Hope your holiday reads are fun!
