Month In Review

As opposed to last month, October seems to have flown by for me. I think it’s mainly due to all the projects I have going on at work which is why my blogging has been a bit hit or miss this month. However, my reading was better this month.

I finished four books:  The Turn of the Screw by Henry James, Anxious People by Fredrik Backman, Flowers Over the Inferno by Ilaria Tutti and The Boy in the Field by Margot Livesey. These were all oh so good. I’ve once again fallen behind on my reviews but I will write more about them one of these days but do recommend them.

Now, with that said, my least favorite was Anxious People. I hate to admit that because I know Backman’s books are so well-received around the book blog community and I think this is a case of having very high expectations and the book was good but it didn’t wow me. This is my first book by this author so I don’t have anything else to compare it to but I would love to read another and see how we get on.

I wanted to read more spooky books for the R.I.P. XV reading challenge but I only finished two and that’s ok. Both were excellent so I am happy I read them. We are probably going to watch a scary movie tomorrow night so looking forward to that. And, am I the only one who hadn’t listened to Lore? I finally started listening to it and have enjoyed it so I will probably tune in for some scary stories tonight while I craft.

Now on to November and there are are a couple of reading events I want to participate in and the Texas Book Festival kicks off tomorrow. Yay. I already have registered for several readings next weekend. So more on all of that soon. In the meantime, have a Happy Halloween! We  have some treats ready for our movie watching on Saturday.

I hope you had a great reading month and would love to hear if you discovered any new authors. What are you looking forward to in November?
