October Reading Wrap Up

October was a pretty good reading month for me! I did hit a reading slump about halfway through (which turned out to be due to the fact that my eyes had magically fixed themselves, and I no longer needed the glasses I was still using), but I still read a respectable number of books. I only read one book I didn’t like, and it wasn’t actually bad, it just wasn’t for me. In general, I really loved everything I read in October. I consider that a major win!

I did start reading The Shining by Stephen King, and am about a third of the way through the book. With everything else going on, I wasn’t able to finish, but I’m planning on reading a big chunk of it tonight, and will probably finish in the next couple of days.

While I didn’t exactly stick to my October TBR list, the majority of what I read this month was still Halloween-appropriate, and I actually really liked having sort of a reading theme. I am definitely ready to move on from the spooky books, though, at least for a bit, and am excited to get into some really excellent books in November!
