October: It’s a Wrap

Ahoy there mateys! It is I back to fight and read another day with a summary of October’s (less than stellar) reading performance. Now,m straight up I am going to say that I haven’t read that much. I am happy with what I read, but Florida is a big holiday both packing and preparing before, and then when you’re there. I bought some books with me to read and they haven’t been touched once they were removed from my bag, so the list is a lot shorter than it should be and is only as long as it is due to Charms Extra Credit Readathon being held this month. I have cracked another couple off the Book Riot Read harder challenge list this month too which has been nice as they’re getting harder now we’re through to the end of the year.

I’m actually in a bit of a book reading slump. You’ll see I’ve read a few things this month so you’re probably thinking that a slump isn’t the right thing to call it, but what I actually mean is reading physical books. You see all the reads this month are either graphic novels/comics, or audiobooks. I don’t know why it is but they’re the only thing appealing to me at the moment. I am really struggling to pick up an actual book and read it. Hopefully that will chance, and soon.

In October, I read 6 books, which is 1411 pages, and all of which are new reads to me.

I read fiction books, a mix of YA, Fantasy, Comics/Graphic Novels and Historical Fiction

By Format, I read 3 Audiobooks and 3 Comic/Graphic Novel.

The average rating was 4.8/5 Stars for all of the books that I read in October.

I’ve read some great books this month, but the ‘Book of the Month’ for October is…

The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy by Mackenzi Lee

I have to say that this month had been a mixed bag for reading. I’ve not actually physically read a book all month which has been weird. I’ve not been in the mood to pick something up and read it, so I’ve tackled some comics/graphic novels and listened to some great audiobooks. In terms of ratings, I loved this month. It scored super highly and I really enjoyed what I actually read, I just didn’t read too much. To be honest, the latter half of the month has been a write off between work, packing, and being on holiday, so I am going to use that as an excuse! (As far as they go, Disney is a pretty good one, don’t you think?

I’m ready for a book filled November, are you? 

How has your October gone? What did you read?

Have you read any of these books? What did you think?
