Kyraryker’s quotes

"She thought it over, but couldn’t see any immediate loopholes other than the threat of her inner slut emerging, and she could darned well control that little bitch."— Susan Elizabeth Phillips

October Roundup

Thanks to Halloween Bingo, I upped my reading game and got a lot in. I'm also a bit exhausted, lol. Time to leave the horror show behind and move on to some holiday themed reads :) There's another game on BookLikes and I'm going to try and participate in it as much as I can. The 16 Tasks of the Festive Season and the Rules. October was also my Start a New Series month and while some series might keep me from reading further on, others have me searching for the rest in the series. (Those selection books will be denoted with ***book cover***) November is back to Random Generator Month where I let the good ole' RNG decide which book off my GRs tbr list gets picked. The thrill, the excitement, the anticipation! I lead an exciting life I tell you. Hope you all had great reading months and can't wait to hear about your winners and losers.

20 books read, which kind of shocks me because last month I read 21 and I could have sworn I read more this month. Anyway, I nice variety pack of ratings, no 4 stars boo but 3 out of the five highest rated were ARCs, pleasantly surprising. 8 were from my new series selections (Yeah for clearing up some book room!). Can't wait to see what RNG has in store for me this month :)


What were your highs and lows from the month?
