I read 12 books in October and am slated to read 5 or 6 in November. A .
Lot of books were released in October! Whew.

Sharon said...

I have a ton of book reviews to accomplish for NetGalley. I hope to make headway on that goal in Novemeber. I read too many and then can't remember what the book was about. It's a bad habit. I have decided not to request anymore books until I have written at least 10 reviews.
You have great books on your list!
Sincerely,
Sharon Paavola

Wow! Great job on reading so many books in October. I agree - there were a ton of books that released last month.

@Sharon

I know exactly what you mean! It is so much tougher to review a book when I don't write it right away... Thanks for commenting and I hope your review writing goes well. :)

@Sarita

Awesome! I'll go stop by. Thanks!
