October is here! It’s officially spooky season, the best time of the year.
And with spooky season comes a lot of new books. Seriously, this month is packed.
To make sense of all of this, I’ve made a list of my top ten releases of the month!
Note: These are in order of release date

Addie LaRue made a bargain: live forever, but be forgotten by everyone she meets. But 300 years after the bargain was made, she meets a man in a bookstore who knows her name. I’ve been dying to read more from V. E. Schwab, and this one sounds amazing!

If you’ve seen my Updates, Explanations, & Oversharing post, then you can probably guess that October wasn’t my best reading month. And you’d be write. You could probably also guess that November isn’t going so well for me. You’d be right again.
That said, despite some lows, I did read some good books in November, and I have hopes of getting to some more good books this month. So instead of focusing on what I couldn’t get to, or what goals I didn’t make, let’s focus on the things I did enjoy, and the things I’m hoping to enjoy in the future!

September was a rough month. The semester started, I picked up more work hours, and I was trying to make two new cosplays for NYCC. That said, I still reached my quota of 10 books! (Barely, but it counts).
Hopefully, things will calm down a little now that the convention is over and the semester is in full swing. Although I did just get cast in a play, so maybe more free time isn’t exactly a realistic goal?
Either way, I wanted to talk about some of my favorite books that helped me survive the insanity that was September, and some of the books I plan to get to this month.

15 books! I read 15 books in October and it was amazing. Now, 8 of them were rereads, but I’m counting them on my list because it’s been over a year since I’ve read any of them (for some, its been several years) and it wasn’t a quick reread. Each one took over a day to finish. I don’t usually count rereads because I read them in a couple of hours, but these I feel obligated to include.
Read on for more details. Don’t worry, I’ll keep the details brief since there are quite a few books to get through (also I’m tired).
I got to only 1 book from my September TBR, but I’m still really proud of all the reading I did (be sure to check out my wrap up by clicking here!).
I chose 4 books for October, and I have faith that I’ll get to at least half of them! (That may not sound too positive, but based on the last couple of months that would be a nice improvement).
