I enjoyed the month of October. It was relatively quiet, and I always enjoy giving away buckets of treats for Halloween. Our neighborhood is super popular, and it is always a big event with people setting up tables at the sidewalk to give away goodies to the kids going from house to house. I also went on a trip to visit my in-laws. We haven’t made that trip since before COVID started. So, it was nice to make it over there and see them and our nephew. I got approximately the same amount of reading done as in September, and I met one of my goals for the year, which is super exciting (Hint: It involves NetGalley). All in all, it has been a pretty great month. Now, let’s get down to the specifics.
I don’t read a ton of nonfiction, but I have made an effort this year to read more of it than last year, which was none. Pretty much anything is an improvement on that, including the three nonfiction books I’ve read since January. Needless to say, I did not know this event was going on this month. I found out about it from viewing posts at A Literary Escape and My World of Books, and this week’s prompt looked like fun.
This was a slower month all around. Thank goodness. I only got four new eARCs, a handful each of digital and physical purchases, and one library book. I’ve even already read several of them! So, my TBR didn’t explode too much last month, which is good because the past couple of months have seen it swell by staggering amounts. Now I just need to focus on getting them all read. lol. I’m definitely convinced that reading and collecting books are two very distinct hobbies…
Hello, everyone! Today I’m sharing my hopefuls for the month of November. I’ve got quite a few ARCs of books releasing this month, and I’m also going to try to catch up on some overdue ARCs from the last couple months that I didn’t get to read yet. I also plan to work on some of my larger 2022 goals by continuing a couple of series I want to finish before the end of the year. I can’t believe 2022 will already be over next month. This year has just flown by. I’m sure there will be some mood reading as well, and at some point I need to fit in my BBNYA finalists… The list goes on and on, but I’ll consider it a successful month if I can manage to make it through these 10 books:
Hello, everyone! Today I’m reviewing The Atlas Paradox by Olivie Blake. I loved the first book in this series so much and had very high expectations for this sequel. Did it live up to them? Read on to find out!
