I had a lot of books to review this month, but I honestly wasn’t feeling like reading a lot of them. I did a lot of for fun reading, and I regret very little about it. I’m not a big Halloween person, though I do enjoy the candy, so I don’t have any fun Halloween pictures to share with you. I did, however, write about some easy halloween costumes to do!

I’m also proud to announce that I’m doing NaNoWriMo, sort of. I know I’m way too busy to do 50,000 words of a novel and still do my job and blog, so I’m rebelling a little bit. My goal is 25,000 words of a novel, which I’ll tell you about on Thursday, and then 25,000 words of articles for work and blog posts. It should be interesting!
Are you doing NaNoWriMo this year? Be my writing buddy here! I can’t wait to see how this goes!

You read so many great books in October! Did you enjoy Binti and Girl with all the Gifts? I really need to get to Heilig’s book! Happy reading in November!??
TGFE was adorable and while there is a romance aspect, it was really good. I LOVED Binti. I’m putting a review out early next year right before the next book comes out. I’ve got Who Fears Death to read next! Girl with all the Gifts was good but strange. The ending was really unexpected for me.
A great reading month!
Are you going to review Furthermore? I’m very interested in your thoughts. I may end up buying it next year.
It really was a great reading month! It’s so nice to not worry about a review schedule and just read. I might do a mini-review of Furthermore in December. I wasn’t absolutely in love with it, but it was cute! And the cover was stunning!
