What I Read in October!
This year has gone way too quickly. I cannot believe we only have a couple of months of 2022 left. I read a total of 10 books throughout October. I wanted to read a lot of comfort YA this month mixed in with a few other things. So, I am back with another what I’ve read this month post which is a bunch of mini reviews for the book I read in October. Here they are!
Halloween Book Tag!
In a few days, it will be Halloween! I love Halloween and all that comes with it. Decorating the house, pumpkins, sweets, all of it! Last year, I did the Halloween book tag and I wanted to give it another go this year. This tag is from Blogger Books and was a lot of fun to do. Here is the Halloween Book Tag!
