In Review: October 2018

In Review

This month I did something I normally never do, I read with a theme for the entire month! I tried to stick with spooky, paranormal, and generally chilling books for October, because everyone else seems to enjoy doing it and I haven’t really ever tried. I definitely enjoyed the experience! I won’t say it made me like Autumn but Halloween is my favorite holiday and it felt nice to kind of bring it into the entire month for once. I don’t think I’ll be doing this sort of thing for December though, too much opportunity to teeth aching sweetness that I generally don’t care for. I will be trying out Sci-Fi Month in November, so look forward to some sci-fi goodness in the way of Top Tens and reviews. I will be looking to have themes play a role in next year’s reading as well.

    I like reading spookier stuff in October usually, although it just depends what I have on tap, since I’m a mood reader to a certain extent. Glad you enjoyed it though! And yay for SciFi Month!

  2. I did the same thing! I tried to read crime books and monster books. I did pretty well and had lots of fun. Good luck with sci-fi month. Have a great November!

  3. I think it’s great you were reading the Goosebumps books. 🎃
