October Wrap-Up!

monthly wrapup

Hello! October is over, and November is halfway over (which is freaking me out since it feels like it just started yesterday), so it is definitely time to share with you all what I was up to last month!

In October, I read 5 books!

I only bought one book last month, which, if you remember September’s haul, is definitely a good thing!  I found The Treatment at Books-a-Million for $4, and I could not refuse it! I really loved The Program when I read it last year, so I’m really looking forward to reading book 2.

MISCELLANEOUS

A lot of fun things happened on the blog in October!

I participated in both the Halloween Read-a-Thon, as well as Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon!

I participated in a few Top Ten Tuesdays, as well as some super fun Halloween tags!

Top Ten Books with Fall/Autumn Covers | Top Ten Foodie Books | Top Ten October/Halloween Books

Hocus Pocus Book Tag | Trick or Treat Around the Block

I also shared my thoughts on the movie The Haunting, based off the book The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson, on Movie Monday.


That wraps up October!  I feel like, after a few slow months, October was a really good blogging month.  I’m looking forward to continuing this in November.  The second half of the month, I have some exciting things coming up.  I’m going to be participating in a blog tour, as well as my Countdown to Christmas series, which returns on 11/19! So, get excited! lol

Thanks so much for reading, and be sure to let me know how October went for you!
