October Wrap Up

October Wrap Up 2017

Hi everyone and Happy Halloween! Here we are at the end of another month and for some reason, this month seemed like it went by both fast and slow. How is that even possible? Anyway, October was an amazing reading month for me! I ended up finishing 11 books and a total of 3,596 pages (which includes the pages I read of the book I put on hold). I can’t believe I was able to read that many books this month!! It’s the most I’ve read all year! I’m so proud of myself. It also helps that 9 out of the 11 books I read were contemporary which are always quick reads for me.

Book I Put On Hold in October


  • Invictus by Ryan Graudin – Put on hold at 135 pages

I decided to put this book on hold because (as you can see) I was really in the mood for contemporary books this month. I definitely want to pick Invictus back up once I’m in the mood for it!
