October Reading Wrap Up

October 2019 Reading Wrap UpOctober finally brought fall weather in my neighborhood and I was so ready for the colorful leaves and the chance to start cozying up in layers again. I’ve also started to find a new routine, which has helped me figure out pockets of time that work best for reading.

My October reading was pretty on track with what I expected. I stayed pretty close to my TBR, only pushing back one book to make room for The Dry when my brain started demanding I listen to a new audiobook. Most of the books were good, with all of them rating at least a three, but the standout for me was Stories of Your Life and Others, which I’ve been eagerly anticipating since seeing Arrival.
