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!
