I hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween. Did anyone dress up and what did you go as? I didn’t dress up and I didn’t do anything too exciting either. I just took my nieces and nephews out trick or treating but it was nice to go with them.
The sbooktober read-a-thon hosted by Jasmine at novel thoughts ended October 31 and I did manage to complete all the seven challenges but not seven books. I finished five books and I am proud of myself for that since I normally finish that amount in a month. I may have been able to finish more if I didn’t have to work and didn’t binge watch Stranger Things 2.
So, I will give you all the break down on what I read each day.

I only picked up one book during the day and spent most of the time vegging out on the couch watching, you guessed it, Stranger Things. lol originally I planned on picking up Fierce Kingdom by Gin Phillips and reading this in a day and also make a dent in Christine Falls. Oh well. I did almost finish it but was too tired.
