October wrap up

And that's the end of another month! October was a decent month in terms of reading, even though I'm in a bit of a reading funk the last week. I'm sure it'll all be good soon! It's getting colder outside so I'll be snuggling up with my blanket a lot, methinks :)

October was a decent reading month! I managed to read 9 books, even though I'm in a little bit of a reading funk right now. I have only read 200 pages in 8 days! Really need to pick up my reading again.. This doesn't feel right!

Having read 9 books this month makes my total of this year 116 books read. According to my Goodreads Reading Challenge widget, I'm 18 books ahead of schedule to read 120 books in 2011 (and to think I wasn't sure I would make it to 100 - I might have to up it again!) Some stats: I have read 116 books this year, which equals 40,664 pages read so far in 2011. That pagecount is rapidly going up! I was thinking of making my reading goal 50,000 pages instead of an X amount of books, but I'm not sure if I can read almost 10,000 pages in two months... So I might have to settle for less.

Here's this month's wrap up video :)

Read in October

Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen
The Madman's Daughter by Megan Shepherd
The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan
Lover Awakened by J.R. Ward
An Abundance of Katherines by John Green
The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
My Soul to Take by Rachel Vincent
Abandon by Meg Cabot

Started but not yet finished
Tankborn by Karen Sandler
Incarceron by Catherine Fisher
Dear Mr. Potter edited by Lily Zalon

This month's winner is without a doubt The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan. That man is a genius! Seriously, if you haven't read Percy Jackson or if you have, but you haven't started The Heroes of Olympus yet, I really recommend you do. I'm going all kinds of fangirly over this book but it's well deserved!! *stalks everyone*

But having said that, I have to add that it was a great month for reading. I only had one book that I was a bit 'meh' about (Abandon by Meg Cabot - but I will still read the sequel!) but other than that, I really liked the rest!

Anyhow, that's it for my wrap up this month! What did you read this month? What book was your favorite? Did you have any disappointing titles? If you have recommendations, please let me know in the comments! :)

  1. I'm glad you had a good reading month! I have Abandon too and saw your Goodreads comments about it. It's a shame it's not very good because Meg Cabot was one of my favourite childhood authors. I reallyyy hope you end up liking Tankborn too.

    My October:
    77. Room by Emma Donoghue
    78. About a Boy by Nick Hornby
    79. The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
    80. Dead Inside by Chronicle Books
    81. The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood
    82. The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson
    83. House Rules by Jodi Picoult
    84. These Things Hidden by Heather Gudenkauf
    85. Variant by Robinson Wells
    86. The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

    I liked every book this month! I'd say that my most favourite was House Rules, but I gave 4-5 stars to most of them.
