October 2021 Bookish Recap

November 01, 2021

Hey everyone and welcome to another recap of whatever the heck I'm reading! October is done and my family and I experienced the weirdest Halloween yet. No trick-or-treating, no costumes, plenty of treats :)

Once again, I spent the month reading whatever I wanted. Whether it was ARCs I couldn't help but request or accept, books I bought, borrowed or received, I had a blast reading. It was such a great month for me. While I didn't read many books, what I did get through, I loved!

So here's what October looked like for me book-wise:

Total Books read: 9

Total Pages read: 3281

DNFs: 0

From my TBR: 2

Avg rating: 3.89 stars

All the Books

My favorite book of the month was...

However, the other books I read were also awesome, which were...
Chalk Dirty to Me by Lani Lynn Vale
Scarred by Ari Reavis
Marked for Seduction by S.J. Rowe
A Shadow in the Reaping by Brynne Weaver
To Kiss a Demon by Stephanie Rowe
Darkness Awakened by Stephanie Rowe
A Hunger Like No Other by Kresley Cole
Dream Keeper by Kristen Ashley

Book Haul

I think this was the first time I didn't break the bank buying books in a month!

One book! I'm so proud of myself!!

Added to my tbr

And here's where things get interesting. I added a total of ZERO books to my tbr. What?!

What are you looking forward to for November? I hope it's as incredible as we deserve it to be!

Talk soon,

  1. One book! That's impressive! I like your weird Halloween. Ours was similar, but with a costume.

    1. Right?! I'm still patting myself on the back for that :D
      I'm crossing my fingers for a 'normal' Halloween next year! 🌸

  2. Its always the best to have more quality reading over quantity reading. Although I do get envious of those that get both haha

    Halloween was dull this year for me as well too. I do love seeing that you enjoyed that KA so much.

    1. Yeah, I can admit I'm jealous of the old me. When I could read up to 40-50 books a month. Times have changed, my friend. I'm just happy that the books I do get to read have been amazing for the most part.

      Sucks about Halloween, but fingers crossed it's way better next year!! 🌸


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment because I absolutely love getting and giving them!
