I don’t really know what happened in October other than I ended up reading some books that weren’t really working for me yet didn’t put down. I have also been reading Godsgrave forever, not because I don’t like it but it’s just a big hardback that I can only seem to read in small portions.

Thanks to Readathon, I read ten books last month, although you may have noticed I am so behind on reviewing them. I’m looking forward to activating my read-whatever-I-bloody-well-like policy for the rest of the year (although I will still try and meet my Goodreads target, I’m not sure about my other challenges).

This month is Non-Fiction November and I’ll be doing the weekly prompts for that, and I’ll try and squeeze in some non-fiction reading too. I plan on having a bit of a breather on the bookstagram challenge front although I have been doing the short GollanczFest one this week. I think it’s nice to have some time to recharge and just do whatever.

I also have a festive giveaway coming up and a fab Q&A with a book shop tour company, so stay tuned! Hopefully things will pick up with my reviewing once all the Ninja Book Swap stuff is out the way.
