The first part of the month I felt like I was making no progress in my reading but I have ended the month clearing off my nightstand of most books in progress so that is a great feeling – means I can start some new books. I typically have between 3-5 books in progress and try not to have many more than that.
So what did I finish in October? A Killing at Cotton Hill by Terry Shames, Witch by Barbara Michaels, Hallowed Bones by Carolyn Haines, The Wicked Girls by Alex Marwood, Killing and Dying by Adrian Tomine, and My Name is Leon by Kit De Waal. I will try to do some write up posts on the books but my favorites were The Wicked Girls and Witch.
Not bad right? And, best of all I completed the R.I.P. Challenge. I read four books, two short stories and even watched a scary movie. I think this is the best participation month I’ve had in all the years I’ve signed up. Thanks again to Carl V. for another wonderful year of scary reads!
We are now headed into the last two months of the year and there are so many exciting things to think about: German Literature Month, Nonfiction November, Holiday wishlists, book festivals, etc. It’s funny because I’ve already started seeing some best of lists and I’m like, wait there are still two good months to read some amazing books. So I’m definitely looking forward to finding some great reads.
How about you? What are you most looking forward to in November?
