October 2016 Wrap Up

 Phew!  I am so glad that October is over.  Halloween was fun but the rest of the month was just plain rough.  Work was crazy busy and I just kind of got into a reading rut.  The majority of the books I read were finished in the last week because I just didn't have it in me to read.  A lot of what I read this month was pure fluff and I don't see that changing for the rest of the year.  I think I'm going to actively try to read as many Christmasy romance novels as I can because I just don't have the brain capacity for anything too deep right now.

I am on track to meeting my new goal of 80 books for the year so I'm pretty happy about that.  I am not doing a great job of reading books I own but I did still manage to read two non-fiction books in October.  Even thought I've read fewer books total than last year, I've already surpassed the number of non-fiction books I last year.  I really wanted to try to focus more on non-fiction books this year and as of right now, almost 25% of my books this year have been non-fiction.  That's not too shabby.

I've been pretty terrible at keeping up with the blog over the past two months so I'm hoping to post more often.  I would like to shoot for at least once a week but hopefully more than that. 

Here's what I read in October:

1.) Hungry Heart by Jennifer Weiner
2.) A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas - 5 stars
3.) Crumpets and Cowpies by Shanna Hatfield - 4 stars
4.) Becoming Queen Victoria by Kate Williams - 3 stars
5.) Thimbles and Thistles by Shanna Hatfield - 4 stars
6.) Christmas in Mustang Creek by Linda Lael Miller - 3 stars
7.) Property of a Noblewoman by Danielle Steele - 3 stars

My stats for the month:

-7 books read
   -2 non-fiction
   -2 historical fiction
   -1 review book
   -3 library books

   -3 books I own
   -5 ebooks

I hope November is off to a great start for you!
