I love this first week of October because it’s when all the Halloween TBRs and recommendations start showing up in blogs and I just love reading those. That’s how I found out about some of my favorite books of all time – I love a good creepy read.
The giveaway is now over and I’m happy to announce the winner!
I’ve DM-ed and emailed you about it, and I’m so glad you won – I’ve followed your blog for ages and have lots of fun with your posts, so I’m really content with the result! 🙂
September Wrap Up
September was a very productive month reading-wise, despite my tiny, tiny slump by the end of the month. Audiobooks made sure I stayed on track with my average of 2-3 books per week (also I read a lot of short books).

October Currently Reading
I’m still making my way through Girl of Fire! I am in a bit of a slump right now, so it’s taking me a while to finish it, but hopefully in a week or two I will.
As of now I’ve finished The Chain, but it will be part of the October Wrap Up, since I only finished it after September was over. This one too I buddy-read with my sister!
I’m still reading Mansfied Park, and I am probably going to still take a while, because I’m reading it on the Kindle and I am (still) trying to get more eARCs read, and I’m not very good at reading multiple e- books at the same time. So I will hopefully finish this by end of October, but no pressure at all.
I picked up A Spell of Winter and I’m about halfway through and loving it. It is gothic and slow-paced but at the same time it keeps me on my toes. Such a perfect read for the cold weather!
I got Trick Mirror on audio, and I’m enjoying it a lot so far – although some essays more than others. I look forward to reading more of it!
