The month where I hit a terrible reading slump.
October was not such a great reading or blogging month for me. I read two incredible books at the beginning of the month but after that it was all down hill. I hit the dreaded reading slump. I started three or four books and didn’t finish any of them. Not because I didn’t like them but because I had zero motivation to read. So, I spent the majority of the month binge watching horror movies (because it’s October so why not). I’ve slowly started crawling out of my reading slump, however, and have stuck with my current read. I should have it finished and a review up within the next week or so.
Also, October brought with it my birthday. I can’t believe I’m 23 because I still feel like I’m 18, but it was exciting and fun. 😊
And, of course, today is Halloween. So, Happy Halloween everyone! Go eat tons of candy and have a great day.

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo [REVIEW]
P.S. I Like You by Kasie West [REVIEW]
I loved both books so much but I’m going to have to go with Six of Crows. That book was fantastic. The characters were so unique and I’m still in awe over the world building. Leigh Bardugo is such an incredible writer. I can’t wait to dive into Crooked Kingdom next month, which I am buddy reading with Jill @ Rant and Rave About Books, Lilly @ Lair of Books, and Megan @ bookslayerReads so be on the lookout for that. 😊
I had so much fun with my love triangles discussion. It really opened my eyes to the fact that there are decent ones out there, it’s just a matter of finding them.
As it was my birthday this month I went a bit crazy. I threw my buying ban out the window and bought whatever I wanted. However, I actually didn’t buy as many books as I had originally thought. I’ve done worse damage in the past. 😂

Who else is really excited for Thanksgiving!? Mainly the food, I’m really excited for the food. 😂
I can’t believe we’re in the last two months of 2016. I swear it feels like just yesterday it was New Years. Time has gone by so quickly this year!
I don’t really have a lot planned for November beyond the buddy read for Crooked Kingdom. I’m just getting out of a reading slump and I’m firmly sticking to my idea of not making a monthly TBR. However, I’m also hoping to get through the two review books I’ve had for a while as well. We’ll see.
November is also going to be an extremely busy month for me school wise. My Humanities class is overloaded with work each week and on top of starting the final paper it’s a lot to do while having to work. I’m hoping it doesn’t take too much away from being on here, but if I disappear for a few days at a time it means I’m drowning in school work.
I hope all of you had a fantastic October and have an even better November! 💕
