October Wrap-Up!

October Wrap-Up

October was a fun month! Now that I have graduated and life has returned to semi-normal, I finally got the chance to enjoy my favorite season again. I have been so busy these last few years dealing with mid-terms and research papers in October that I haven’t had time to really enjoy the fall season or even decorate for Halloween. But that all changed this year! I decorated my front yard and my front porch, complete with garlands of fall leaves and orange lights. I also had the opportunity to dive into some spooky and magical reads. Below, I’ve highlighted all the books I read in October. Click on the titles to be taken to the full reviews.

I feel that lesson resonates through these pages and drives home a great point about not judging circumstances or people by the way they initially appear.

The weather was not the only thing that seemed to be all over the place. I had an interesting run of reads in September that ranged from wonderful to disappointing. In this blog, I will recap my September reads, highlight my title of the month, and share what is upcoming in October.
