October seems to have blown by really fast! And yet I managed to have a GREAT reading month! Maybe having such a dismal reading month in September really helped turned things around for me. I read 11 books this past month, including one that I decided not to finish. Not only did I read 11 books, but I read well over 3,000 pages and I’m only three books away from completing my Goodreads goal of reading 100 books this year. And what might be even more amazing to me is that I finished every single book that I had on my October TBR! That has NEVER happened! I’m such a mood reader that it is hard for me to pick books for a whole month and then stick to those choices. But I guess I picked out a great stack this past month. Either that or I was just in a super Halloweeny mood the whole month!
One book that was a little bittersweet to read was Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor. It was absolutely amazing, everything I wanted and more in the finale of the Strange the Dreamer duology…. But that’s it, no more to the story so that made me pretty sad about finishing it. Definitely my favorite book of the month, and of 2018 so far! With the pushback on publication of the Nevernight trilogy finale, Muse of Nightmares was my most anticipated book of 2018. So, so happy that it lived up to my expectations.
