Recap: October to November

Nov 2, 2015

School totally kicked my ass in October. It took up a lot of reading time, and blogging time, so I didn't get much done. Hopefully I can get ahead and get more reading and blogging done in November!


Books Read
-Blackhearts by Nicole Castroman
-Joseph Andrews by Henry Fielding
-Ice Like Fire by Sara Raasch
-The Italian by Ann Radcliffe
-Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

-How to Outfox Your Friends When You Don't Have a Clue by Jess Keating: Such adorkableness.
-Wendy Darling: Stars by Colleen Oakes: FEELSY and intense.
-The Masked Truth by Kelley Armstrong: This is how thrillers are done.
-Ice Like Fire by Sara Raasch: Light and fun with a killer ending.

Favorite Book Read
Despite the insane unputdownable quality of Blackhearts (seriously though), I'm going with Illuminae because it blew a lot of things out of the park.

Book Haul

I couldn't not do this month's book haul in my Halloween costume. I had to! It is (was), after all, Halloween!

Weekly Posts
I asked the bookish genie for a few wishes and recommended some reads for Halloween (and compared them to movies).

I waited on a contemporary novel from an author whose Middle Grade debut I loved and a retelling of Alice in Wonderland.

Other Posts

I introduced a new feature! Please welcome For the Tote! This sporadic feature is all about things to fill in your tote, aka, whatever I'm currently obsessed with.


Reading Goals
I lowered my Goodreads goal from 100 to 80. Instead of being thirteen books behind, I'm now three books ahead. My goal is to stay ahead--and maybe still reach 100.

New Releases
Here are the three books I'm looking forward to most! (And that I don't already have copies of. Hence why The Anatomical Shape of a Heart and Da Vinci's Tiger aren't on here.)


November 10, 2015: Over 800 pages OH MY GOSH.

November 10, 2015: This sounds reminiscent of The Rules for Disappearing so WANT.

What are you looking forward to reading in November?


  1. I am so looking forward to Winter. It can arrive any time and I will gladly drop everything to read it. I am also hoping to get to Ice Like Fire this month as well as The Heart of Betrayal.
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. APK declare your Android Mobile. For Android something Mobdro Pc and also iPhone. Mobdro is a cost-free amusement app
