October 2018 Monthly Wrap-up


Welcome to my October 2018 Wrap-up! A Monthly Wrap-up is exactly what it sounds like, a summary of the month. I’ll be recapping books I read, purchased/borrowed, posts of the month, a little bit of what’s going on outside the blog. I’m linking this post to the Monthly Wrap-up at Feed Your Fiction Addiction, hosted by Nicole.

I can’t believe that October has ended, and November is upon us. Happy Halloween to those that celebrate. The little ghosts and goblins (unicorns and superheroes) had a cold evening treat-or-treating here in Colorado, the temperature was in the lower 30’s… burr. I remember those day’s long ago when my children had to wear their costumes over winter coats. Thank goodness those days are over, it’s nice to see all the little ones dressed up.

I had a goal this month to read more books than purchased and if I include all the audiobooks, I reached that goal. Yay me! October was also a productive month for posting Bookish Thoughts. I made sure to spend a bit of time every morning working on posts, although, I don’t have any upcoming scheduled, surprisingly I’m okay with that.
