Hello again! I hope you have all been enjoying October. It’s definitely gotten cooler here and my trees are pretty much bare now. I’ve been doing a lot of cleaning out and re-organizing of my TBR so that number sees a big change. I’ve also been incorporating some review of items other than books on the blog. I hope you’ve been enjoying it, or at least not hating it. So let’s see what the numbers look like.
TBR – I eliminated a total of 76 books from the list after revisiting them and deciding that I was no longer interested in reading them. In addition, I read or listened to 6 books this month, very, very sad performance here. Finally, I acquired 7 books during the month. All of that, brings the grand total to 192.
Goodreads Challenge – Not good, but not too bad. I am 4 books behind schedule currently.
NetGalley score – Somehow I have managed to keep this score at 86% despite my dismal reading performance.
John Connolly Challenge – Book 9 finished this month. Again I listened to the audiobook version.
Coming Up – In November, I plan to listen to Book 10 of the Charlie Parker series “The Burning Soul“. I will also be listening to “The Butterfly Garden” by Dot Hutchinson. This is my first book from this author and sounds like it could be really creepy. I am reading “Crux” by Jean Guerrero right now and after that plan to take up “The Dream Daughter” by Diane Chamberlain. I will soon be posting reviews of “Blue Murder” by Colin Watson, “The Sleeper” by Emily Barr, and an outlier “The Crochet Stitch Handbook” by Betty Barnden.
I think that’s about it for the month guys. I hope every one has a great November, enjoy your Thanksgiving if you celebrate it, and don’t forget to read!
