October Roundup

Thanks to Halloween Bingo, I upped my reading game and got a lot in. I'm also a bit exhausted, lol. Time to leave the horror show behind and move on to some holiday themed reads :) There's another game on BookLikes and I'm going to try and participate in it as much as I can. The 16 Tasks of the Festive Season and the Rules. October was also my Start a New Series month and while some series might keep me from reading further on, others have me searching for the rest in the series. (Those selection books will be denoted with ***book cover***) November is back to Random Generator Month where I let the good ole' RNG decide which book off my GRs tbr list gets picked. The thrill, the excitement, the anticipation! I lead an exciting life I tell you. Hope you all had great reading months and can't wait to hear about your winners and losers.

September Roundup

Woooeeee, what a busy September! I must have gotten the arc bug because I accepted a good amount that had me busting my butt to stay ahead of the game. Add those in with my themed month books, trying to catch up on new releases, and Halloween Bingo and I've been reading my tail feather off. I didn't get as many September Singles (Those selection books will be denoted with ***book cover***) read as I would have liked because of all this but alas, those book boxes go back into the closet and out come the October Start a New Series boxes. Can't wait to start a series that will take me years to complete or send me on a binge reading extravaganza!

21 books read this month with 6 being from my themed month pile. One of my 4 star picks, Truly by Mary Balogh, was a themed selection and a shining beacon of why I have themed months. It was a great book and one that would have gotten lost in the mix of the hundreds of other books on my tbr. I may read less new releases now but getting a book like Truly makes it all worth it. Oh, and reading this line "Go to hell, Joe Jordan," she whispered. "And don't expect me to do the dishes!"

 

What were your highs and lows of the month?
