Hello friends! October just passed recently, and I have been so freakin’ busy. So here’s my October Wrap Up!
I didn’t end up setting up a To Be Read list for October, just because I know that October is one of the busiest months I have yearly. However, since I accidentally ended up borrowing quite a few books from the library, I knew that I’d have to read those sometime. So why not make them my unofficially-official TBR and read a few of the books so I could feel like I actually read my TBR list this month.
Here’s what happened this month!
Books I Read and Reviewed this October:
- Going Down Hard (Doing Bad Things Book 1) by Jordan Marie — 4
- Nightblood (Frostblood Saga, #3) by Elly Blake — 3
No, I did not get to that massive pile of library books. I ended up returning 8 of the 13 books I had.
Books I DNF’d this month:
Ten by Gretchen McNeil. I’ve tried to read Ten before, and didn’t get around to it. And when I reborrowed Ten again I told myself that I would start reading it ASAP. When I got around to reading it I found that I didn’t like the character view point (or maybe it was the writing?) and skipped to the end of the book and spoiled it for myself. No regrets here.
Manga I Read:
- Waiting for Spring, Vol.01 by Anashin

02; I bought Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa today! I actually stayed up until midnight on the 1st so I could buy it as soon as it came out! I also went out and spoiled myself since it’s my birthday month. Now all I have to do is wait until Kingdom of Ash is published and in stores. Then I’ll have spoiled myself to the limit.
06; I’ve gone to Lush no more than 3 times in the last 4 days and let me tell you, it was such a bad idea lmao. I’m going to end up spending all of my money there.
25; Today was my birthday and even though I cried a little I had a lot of fun! I received a Totoro puzzle thingy that I started building tonight. I will take pictures when I am done!
28; Much of this month was preparing Christmas gifts. I had the bright idea to make a bunch of presents this year and frankly, I don’t have enough time to do it. Especially because the last 3 months of the year fly by so freaking quickly!
And because I’ve been so busy, I haven’t had time to read. As you can see, I’ve had the time to by ebooks off of Amaz*n but that’s about it! I actually read Nightblood and it took me a full day to complete it, holy smooookes.
So I don’t know if I’ll have time to do everything that I want to do reading and blogging wise during November and December.
31; HAPPY HALLOWEEN IF YA CELEBRATE IT!!! 🙂
Thank you for stopping by! How was your October?
