October Wrap-Up!

Hello everyone! I’m back from an unexpected and unplanned hiatus!  The first half of November has been so busy and school has been so overwhelming, when I have free time I haven’t felt like reading or blogging very much.  That being said, I’m ready to start blogging and reading more again despite my busy-ness! So, here I am wrapping up October halfway through November, lol.

Okay, so overall, October was a pretty nice reading month for me.

Altogether I read six books during the month of October.

– And the Trees Crept In by Dawn Kurtagich \\ ⭐⭐⭐⭐

– Sunrise Cabin by Stacey Donovan (ebook) \\ ⭐⭐⭐⭐

– Small Spaces by Katherine Arden \\ ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

– The Witch of Willow Hall by Hester Fox (ebook) \\ ⭐⭐⭐⭐

– The Grownup by Gillian Flynn (ebook) \\ ⭐⭐⭐

– Hocus Pocus & The All-New Sequel by A. W. Jantha \\ ⭐⭐⭐

STANDOUT BOOK OF THE MONTH

Omg y’all I loved this book SO much!!  Small Spaces was one of the best books I’ve read all year.  I just enjoyed this book so much! I want to read more Katherine Arden books now!

MISCELLANEOUS

I participated in Blogtober and Blogoween last month, so that meant I posted [nearly] every single day in October!

Some of the highlights of my month include:

Spookathon TBR | Wrap-Up

Sbooktober Readathon TBR | Wrap-Up

I got the opportunity to interview the author of Fallen Leaves, Tessa Emily Hall!

I also shared my autumnal bookshelf decorations!

October was also filled with some fun book tags including:

Some of my other favorite posts from this month include:

My Top 5 Favorite Non-Horror Halloween Movies

Bonded, Bewitched, Drowned, AKA Kiss, Marry Kill: Halloween Edition

And that wraps up my October! October was a really fun month for me!  While November has been busy, I’m still hopeful that it’ll be a great month and that the second half of it will have more reading and blogging. 🙂

Be sure to let me know how your October went and how your November is going so far!

• And The Trees Crept In is actually just the American version of The Creeper Man, which I think I remember seeing you’ve read it on Goodreads (I hope that’s doesn’t sound stalker-y aha)? Sorry to get your hopes up!

2. So is it an October or November wrap-up? 🙂 It say one month in the beginning, another one in the end :)). I’m going to read Miniaturist soon! Also, are those corn plants?
