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.

Anyway, I nice variety pack of ratings, no 4 stars boo but 3 out of the five highest rated were ARCs, pleasantly surprising. 8 were from my new series selections (Yeah for clearing up some book room!).

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?

August Read Roundup

I feel Fall creeping in and I sort of like it but I know it brings the frozen tundra of hell winter. Boooo! Anyway, my Kindle Freebies month wasn't too bad, there were some winners and average Joes but at least no outright run for your momma and have her hold you bad. Those selection books will be denoted with ***book cover***.   September is my Singles month, where I just grab two books out of my garage sale boxes that I think aren't part of a series (spoiler: they're usually part of series but Goodreads wasn't always around educating me). I'm also going to be participating in Halloween Bingo on BookLikes, so it should be a busy reading month :)

15 books read in all with 8 being Kindle Freebies. I've cleared 8 books off my Kindle, woo-hoo! I'm not going to check to see how many I have added in that time, lol. This was clearly the month of average reading with so many 2 star ratings and nothing about 3.5. Hoping for a spooky Halloween Bingo and at least some 4 star reads for myself and you all!

 

How many books did you all get to read this month and did you have a better reading month than I did?

August, errr, JULY Read Roundup

Summer is still here and I am still here for it! It has been a steady 80 degs and I actually have some color to my whitewalker skin (speaking of which, was anyone else like dude, Bran, No? Who says that?!). I greatly enjoyed my recommendations month and once again a hearty thank-you to Quirky OmegaShannon BurkeAnneLover of Romance; Belindaand Becca for their recs. Those selection books will be denoted with ***book cover***. I love how books I may not necessarily pick out for myself can appear on this list and expand my reading. August is Kindle Freebie month and I love how wild card these picks can be. I'm not always judicious about downloading freebies :)

13 books in all, not a bad month. I'm loving how varied my ratings were and there were only two books I didn't end up writing a review or post comments about! I'm counting this as one of my most successful themed months; variety and words, woo-hoo! Also, can't forget I got my first full 5 star read of the month, Hate to Want You by Alisha Rai. LOVED. Hoping August feels even half as great as this reading month did.

 

How many books did you all get to read this month and did you enjoy your reading month as much as I did?

June Reading Roundup

Summer has arrived and I am here for it! My reading took a bit of hit because of the glorious weather and I only checked off 12 books. June was my start a new series month, it wasn't the most successful for finding me a new series to obsess over but that's probably a good thing. Those selection books will be denoted with ***book cover***. July is my Recommended Month, books selected for this come from friends who send direct recommendations to me on Goodreads. Can't wait for more sun, fun, and reading. Enjoy your July, everyone!
