Happy November! If you celebrate, I hope you had a fun Halloween. I went back to my childhood roots and was Kit Kitteridge for Halloween this year. I was in love with the American Girl books, I read all of them, and Kit was one of my favorites.
I would say that October was a good reading month for me! I read 12 books, which is average for me. I will say that 4 of those were for school, so I definitely read less for fun this month. But more important than the actual number of books I read that made it a good month is that I really enjoyed the majority of the books I read. Half of them were four or five star reads. I also read a lot of queer books this month, which I really enjoyed.
Books I read in October
- The Fixed Stars by Molly Wizenburg – 4/5 stars ★★★★
- 84, Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff – 4/5 stars ★★★★

My Posts This Month + Upcoming Posts
I was really consistent about blogging this month, which I’m quite proud of. In case you missed it, I wrote a review of Fat Chance, Charlie Vega, and I posted two recommendation posts! One of these was books recs for spooky season, and the other was six different audiobook recommendations.
This month, I am hoping to post a double review of two books I read this month, The Fixed Stars and Greedy. And to go along with my audiobook recommendations, I plan to post about where you can listen to audiobooks without using Audible.
How was your reading month this October? Let me know in the comments! Thanks for reading, I hope to see you again soon!
