October Wrap Up – 2021 Edition

Wow, what a month! I had my birthday, a trip to Chicago, and I put in my notice at my job! I start a new job mid-November and I’m so ready for the change and a new challenge. I did plenty of reading, but not as much of my TBR as I planned! Turns out a month of spooky reads is to much for me, and I need to break them up with some romance. Will have to remember that for next year as I make that TBR!

I finished with 27 books in October, which is a pretty average number for me. I also have reached over 200 books for the year, and am on pace for the best reading year I’ve ever had even beating last year’s record numbers. The pandemic really does help my reading, and I’ve been reading audiobooks more which also increases my numbers.

So, see below for the books I read in October! Check back tomorrow for my November TBR, which I’ve decided to do differently than the last few months (again).
