Month in Review: October 2019

I actually got quite a bit read in October, though not as much Horror as I would have liked. I took a good chunk out of my Fall TBR too, which makes me happy because I’m going to get to mood read for most of November and December!

Books read: 9 for October, 86 for the year

DNF: 3

Pages read: 3,287 out of 28,587

Average rating: 3.78

Female Authors: 4 out of 39 for the year

Favorite Read(s):

I couldn’t pick just one so I went with two:

Tuesday Mooney Talks to Ghosts by Kate Racculia

The Fountains of Silence by Ruta Sepetys

Honorable mention to Kel Kade’s Fate of the Fallen, which I read way back in July but was technically the highest rated book for October.

Other Reads Completed:

Half Way Home by Hugh Howey

I Will Make You Pay by Teresa Driscoll

Sword of Kings by Bernard Cornwell

People of the Lake by Nick Scorza

Into the Crooked Place by Alexandra Christo

Airframe by Michael Crichton (RTC)

Alone by Christophe Chaboute (RTC)

ARCs Received:

A Beginning at the End by Mike Chen

The Better Liar by Tanen Jones

The Unwilling by Kelly Braffet

The Wall by John Lanchester

eGalleys Approved:

No, it’s not a joke, just a weird coincidence:

The Deep by Alma Katsu

The Deep by Rivers Solomon

Fortuna Sworn by KJ Sutton

Dead Astronauts by Jeff VanderMeer

Gamechanger by LX Beckett

Random Other Posts from October:

Discussion: The Dawn of the DNF

Top Ten Tuesday: Spooks, Psychics and other Supernatural Books on my TBR

Reviews still to come on a few of these and the DNFs.  How was your October?  Anything special planned for November?

  1. Wow, you had a great month. I can’t remember the last time I read 9 books! I love the two The Deeps, lol. I’ve read one, of course, and I have Alma’s as well. That is probably one of my most highly anticipated books next year😁 I’m hoping to read Gamechanger too!

    • I can’t wait either!! I’m a little disappointed with the goodreads rating where it’s at now, so when I initially read it and loved it, I thought: “Here is a book everyone can enjoy!” And now it seems not everyone is enjoying it as much as I did. But then most books with a 4+ rating I tend to enjoy less, so who knows. I guess I have different tastes.

      Anyway- I still hope you love it so I can have someone to discuss it with!

  2. Haha I’ve seen The Deep around and got confused thinking they were the same but just alternate covers! 🙈 glad to know they’re different now haha. I hope you enjoy them! Such a great month of reading Sarah 😄 Jen
