October has been a weird month. On the one hand, I read 28 books (lots of novellas in there, in case you wondering if I did anything else other than read)! On the other hand, the world is a dumpster fire. It was quite the busy month for ARCs, and while I read some Halloween-themed books, I didn’t get to as many as I’d wanted. Ah well, there’s always next year! The usual inundation of Christmas books has started and, wow, it does feel weird to be reading them this early!
For the Goodreads Challenge, I’ve read 216 out of 220 books for the year. That’s 33 books ahead of schedule. I think I’m gonna make it this year!
And hey, if you’re American? Go vote!

PLANNED FOR NOVEMBER
November’s a little bit of everything: contemporary, historical, scifi, fantasy, and paranormal. I’m pretty excited to read all of these books so hopefully it’ll be a stellar reading month!
That’s my month! What’s yours looking like?
