October 2015 Wrap-Up


Despite what I said last month, I actually have read a couple of books this month. This is due to me finally listening to my friends and signing up for NetGalley to get free eArcs for review. So, all books I’ve read this month are eBooks! I still prefer actual physical copies, but I have to admit that it helped a lot with my book buying addiction. One month without buying anything – wohooo! Now, let’s take a look at what I read this October:

  • Rikki by Abigail Strom
    A cute story about rivals falling in love with each other. If it weren’t for a certain creepy thing one of the MC’s does, it would have been truly great.
  • How Many Letters Are In Goodbye? by Yvonne Cassidy
    The review for this book is scheduled for February to be relatively close to it’s release in March. I unfortunately couldn’t connect with the MC very much, which made it difficult to like the book.
  • Abby and the Cute One by Erin Butler
    The perfect book for fans of boy bands, insta-love and general cuteness.
  • Did I Mention I Love You? by Estelle Maskame
    I liked this one so much, mostly because there were so many references to places I like or have actually been to. I know, I am an easy target.

In other news!

There were a couple of milestones that I didn’t actually blog about, but only mentioned on Twitter. We surpassed not only the 250-follower-mark but also achieved more than 4,000 comments. Every time we get to another one of those blogging-milestones, I am just in awe with you all. I never thought that people would actually like to read what I have to say so much, but I am so happy that you do. So, I am using this as a platform to once more say: THANK YOU!

I also wrote a lot about NaNoWriMo and participating and got some great feedback from you all. I am glad you like my idea and I’m really excited about writing. The kick-off was last midnight, but I haven’t gotten very far. However, I do plan on sharing the experience and maybe even bits and snippets of the story right here. If you are interested, I would also love to have some of you as Beta-readers when or if I finish the story and get around to editing it.

Now, how was your month? Did you read some interesting books? Did you prepare for NaNoWriMo as well? Tell me all about it!

  1. I recently finished A Clash of Kings, and I just started Career of Evil by Robert Gailbrath. I’m not doing NaNoWriMo this year, but maybe I’ll do it next year. And by the way, did you see the latest Doctor Who episode? I only just managed to watch it.

      • Oh good, I was afraid we’d miss our weekly ten comments or more conversation on the latest in the Whoniverse.
        Yeah, I enjoyed Clash of Kings. I’ll probably read the third book after Career of Evil. I like to take time away from volumes in big series like GoT. Otherwise I start having confused dreams about the books and they just get weird.


      • Hahaha no worries! Discussing Who should be possible in a couple of minutes.
        I liked the 3rd book best in the series. I actually like it when a story starts to morph my brain a little, but I also get how that can get weird.


  2. Congratulations on all of your recent milestones! They are absolutely well-earned; here’s to many more to come!

    I have a handful of books from NetGalley, but I’ve only read one of the five so far; it’s been crazy trying to get caught up with all of the other ones I’ve been getting from Goodreads! However, the ones you got look good and that cover for DIMILY is absolutely to die for. It’s that dang gradient effect, ahaha.

    Let me know when you’re open for beta readers for your story; I’d love to help you out, Kat!

    • Thank you! That’s so nice of you to say!!
      I was instantly drawn to the DIMILY cover myself! I liked the book, so I’ll definitely try to read the others as well. I think they’ve all been released in the UK already (with different covers), but they are behind with the publishing in the US.
      I’ll definitely let you know! It will probably still take a while, but I’ll make sure to make a post for it to let everyone know 😀
