Wow, was my October a terrible reading month for me. I read a total of 6 books. I think I usually average somewhere between 8-10 books a month. I think I got stuck binge watching a show early in the month and then before I knew it, I only had a couple weeks until October 31.
I was excited to participate in my first read-a-thons ever and I’m bummed that I didn’t finish many of the prompts. But I did read a few books that counted and were really good reads.
Thriller October Results
Thriller October was hosted by Read with Angie and had 6 prompts. Sadly, I was only able to complete two of them: Read a Thriller by a BIPOC Author and Read a Ghost Story or a Book About a Haunting.
My Sister was not quite what I was expecting, but I really enjoyed it. I’m still processing The Deep since it’s my most recent finish; it also was not quite what I was expecting though I still enjoyed it though not as much as I would have liked.
Spooktober was hosted by bookstagrammer spookyreadathon and there were two team books plus 6 prompts. Again, I only read two books and both satisfied the team books.
Mexican Gothic was also a read that ended up being not quite what I was expecting. I’m still processing this one too and trying to come up with the best words to describe it. I will say that Moreno-Garcia is very talented.
In addition to reading these three books for the read-a-thons, I also finished two books I was already in the middle of and started and finished another.
November 2020 TBR
I don’t have a lot of expectations for what I’ll be able to read for November. Since I wasn’t able to read a lot of the books I owned in October, those are still next on my list. Since that list is kind of on the long side, I’m just going to list the ones that I’m particularly excited to read.
Fangs by Sarah Andersen
The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware
