October Reading Roundup

Salt to the Sea - Ruta Sepetys Dad is Fat - Jim Gaffigan The Three Musketeers - Alexandre Dumas Loyalty (King, God and Country Book 1) - Jane Grenfell

Yes, that's really it. Those four.


I think I started about a dozen books this month. Alright, maybe it wasn't quite that bad, but pretty close. I have been distracted & trying to get writing done, so this was the worst month of reading in a long time. To make matters worse, I had audiobook holds all check out at the same time, so I missed out on some & got one half listened to before I had to return it and put it on hold again.


I know. First world problems.


Next month is NaNoWriMo, and I'm hoping to get a first draft of Queen of Martyrs complete, so don't expect my Reading Roundup for November to look much better. Maybe I shouldn't even post it! 


Anyway, the good news is that I hit my writing goal for the month and still got a few books read.


Best book of the month: Salt to the Sea, hands down.
