October 2022 Wrap-Up!

October was a doozy! Hurricane Ian waltzed on in and skewed all of my plans, but it did mean I had a lot of reading time with the power outage that happened after.

I read 22 books and 10 novellas (or short stories), which really kicked up my reading goal.

(Now if only I could get myself to sit down and read the rest of my 22 in 2022 books…)

Oof… 22 in 2022 isn’t looking great considering I have 3 months left and pretty much no want to read what I told myself to read. I’m gonna have to think of something different for next year, because I’m going to be very busy for a portion of it and I just KNOW I won’t be able to sit myself down and read preplanned books.

Guess we’ll see what I can figure out.

Thanks for reading!

  1. Some of these take me back whoa! That are still on my long TBR. lol!

    Well, I would recommend trying to read ADSOM because it’s fabulous and TDM is not terrible. I haven’t read the others you have left except The Goldfinch and I highly recommend avoiding it…it’s slow and boring and long and blahhhhh. lol.

    1. GOLDFINCH WAS SO BORING. I’m doing TDM right now (it’s pretty good so far!) and ADSOM is hopefully next, but LORD. Wish I had known beforehand because I cannot believe how much of a drag Goldfinch ended up being… 😂
