October 2020 Wrap-Up!

I almost flat out forgot I needed to do one of these. I almost flat out forgot another month was ending, even though I specifically spent Halloween watching copious Halloween material. That’s just how this year is. I cannot be trusted with anything.

(Which is why my review request is gone for now, if you’ve noticed. I am a mess of a human being right now, you don’t want me touching your works.)

(Also my email got compromised, so I have to work around that. Sorry if you’ve contacted me in the past, say, five months! I did not get your email.)

Anyway. Wrap up. I read 17 books and 1 novella this month. Not bad!

Ruler of the Realm by Herbie Brennan // ★★★☆☆
Faerie Lord by Herbie Brennan // ★★★☆☆
The Hunting Party by Lucy Foley // ★★★☆☆

  19. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
  20. The Last Wife of Henry VIII by Carolly Erickson

Well, that was kind of a mediocre month, if the nearly straight 3-star ratings across the board was any indication. I can’t believe we only have two months left in the year.

I only have six books left to read for my 20 in 2020. One of them is Jane Eyre, though, so I kind of consider that two and a half books. That thing is THICC.

My 21 in 2021 should be coming out in December, though! It’ll be post-only, no video, because I haven’t had a haircut since February and have barely left the house and it shows. No one needs to see that! I’m excited to get to that, though. I love drawing the random titles out of my TBR jar (which is now a box, because I found a Frozen tissue box at the Dollar Tree and was smitten). Can’t wait to see what classics fate makes me read next year!

Thanks for reading!

  1. That is a solid list of 3* reads! And 17 is great for a month’s reads! Honestly, I can’t even believe it’s already November. And this hell year is almost over. And hopefully it will not continue into next year. Aye aye!
