I also DNFed a book this month, which I don’t do that often. But I think putting it down and (finally) pushing through Warcross will help push me into a reading streak. 🙂 How did your month go, book-wise?

Month in Review – November 2017

As I’ve mentioned in my previous posts, I got a dog this month. So it was a pretty slow reading month.

As per usual, I will be linking up to bookdate.blogspot.com.

Month in Review – October 2017

I think this month was a pretty decent reading month, especially since I did some more traveling. I also spent quite a bit of time on Goodreads, adding to my TBR, which just fires me up to read even more! (I’m not one of those people who keep their TBR very nice and neat… I have 2944 on my list at the moment! And I’m okay with that. :)) Anyways, here’s a summary of my bookish activities for the month. I’ll be linking up to bookdate.blogspot.com, who also inspired the format of this post.
