I can’t believe that October has come and gone. Every year I save a ridiculous amount of books to specifically read during this time. I’m shocked by how much I was able to accomplish! I should note that there are a handful of novellas within this count, as you can see from the count, which makes my total number sound crazy high!

October was definitely a month that added a bunch of new favorites to my shelves! I found myself obsessing over haunted houses and YA horror, so get ready to see that trend continuing in upcoming months!

November is off to a weird start and I just finished my first book last night, which is pretty strange for me. I’m hoping to feel less stressed and start reading more in the coming days, but an uptick in work isn’t letting that look promising!

Have you read any of these? I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Cheers to November reads! 🥂
