October Rewind & Review


So I’m participating in “Rewind & Review,” a blog hop hosted by Shae Has Left the Room. Basically, we’ll be glancing back at what happened on the blog during the month of October, and also take a look at what I’ve been reading.

Had more opportunity to read this month, but my reading has significantly slowed down due to my HW load and new school responsibilities. Again, looking forward to future TTTs (Top Ten Tuesdays), book reviews, and the completion of my Friday series.

By the way, I’d love feedback regarding the Friday series. I’m a huge fan of themed posts, or packaged posts, so share your thoughts and let me know if you’d like me to cover something in particular in a future series!

    I have to say, it’s kind of nice to see a manageable four books read in October. Most book bloggers I follow read SO MANY books per month, and that used to be me as well, but now life’s slowed me down a bit. It makes me feel a little better about it to see someone else who’s not reading 20+ books a month. 😉

    Also, YAY, Blue Lily, Lily Blue!

      Yes, I sometimes feel a little inferior when I see how many books other bloggers are able to read in one month. *Jaw drops to floor* I love to read, but my schoolwork takes priority and so if I’m super busy I’ll sometimes have to forego the beautiful stack of reading material I’ve built up. Sad but true. Counting down the days until Thanksgiving break!

        Same! What with writing, blogging, schoolwork, and life in general, I don’t read quite so much as I used to. It’s not a bad thing–I do a lot of different stuff I enjoy!–but it does mean I’m not flying through the new releases as fast as I might hope, haha. 😉 And time will only be tighter once I start college next semester, but ah well–that’s something else I’m super excited for, so I’ll make do. 😉 Of course, even my reduced reading is still more than a lot of people I know, so at least there’s that to console me!

          You’re right – reading less is not a bad thing! I always make sure I have time for it, and now I have a greater appreciation for books simply because reading is sort of like a treat. Rough day? I read to decompress. 😉
