October Wrap Up

 I hope you all had a wonderful Halloween!  We took Julia trick-or-treating for the first time and she had a blast!  It was really fun to watch her experience the holiday now that she's old enough to now what's going on.  Now bring on Thanksgiving and Christmas!

October was a good reading month for me.  I participated in Dewey's Read-A-Thon this month so that helped a lot.  I hit my goal of reading 80 books this year and have decided to raise it to 100.  I finished October with 9 books read in the month and 84 books read for the year which is 2 more than I read in the whole year last year. If I can read 8 books per month for the rest of the year, I will hit 100.

I'm also going to try something new for November and December.  I'm going to try to just read books I own for the rest of the year.  I do have two books on hold at the library and two review books to read but otherwise I want to solely read books I own (whether ebook or physical).  I really need to purge my shelves so I'm hoping this will help.

Here are my October numbers:
-9 books read
   -1 non-fiction
   -2 historical fiction
   -2 review books
   - 3 library books
   -4 books I own
   -6 ebooks

Here are the books I read:

1.) The Secret Servant by Daniel Silva - 3 stars
2.) The Silent Girls by Eric Rickstad - 3 stars
3.) Raising Your Spirited Child by Mary Sheedy Kurcinka -5 stars
4.) A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle - 4 stars
5.) Medici's Daughter by Sophie Perinot - 3 stars
6.) The Three by Sarah Lotz - 3 stars
7.) Spirit of the Highway by Deborah Swift - 3stars
8.) The Good Girl by Mary Kubica - 3 stars
9.) Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling - 4 stars

I hope you all have a great week!
