October was a good month bookwise for me :) I got a little burned out on challenges and books the last few months, but with the start of Holiday Bingo I kicked back into reading gear. My main aim this  month was to finish some of the books I'd had on the go for a while, read some Netgalley books, and get started on Holiday Bingo.

 

I managed 14 books this month

Rain (Paper Gods #2)  - Amanda Sun- read not reviewed 4 stars

The Winner's Curse  - Marie Rutkoski read not reviewed - 3 stars
