Month in Review: October 2018

Posted November 4, 2018 by Lory in blog housekeeping / 18 Comments

 

Okay, I’m still not getting a ton of reading done, but I did manage some book reviews. I even polished off some from the TBR stack, which feels really good. Unfortunately, I keep buying more at double the rate of completion … but I shall keep working on it.

What have you completed, or acquired, this month?

  • The Apocalypse of St. John by Emil Bock
  • Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett

 

Other Features and Events

  • I asked, Is it time for a change? — I’m thinking of starting a new blog in the new year. Your response was encouraging…
  • I noted that Witch Week has begun, hosted this year by two other lovely blogs. I’m so glad my brainchild will continue to exist, and also glad that at this super busy time of year I didn’t have to put it all together. Whew.

  1. I still need to read Good Omens. I got halfway but at the time my mind wasn’t in it and I put it down. I really need to pick it back up and just restart.

  2. My reading has slowed down too! Not sure why but life just is getting in the way more and more. I also am thinking to make a big blog change over in the new year to something focused on more than books! Good luck with that, its hard, the idea of starting over… ❤️

  3. Audiobooks helped me increase my book consumption because they fit in times when I cant read easily like long car trips or when cooking/knitting/sewing/quilting. And the narrator performance can make them even better than reading sometimes.

    I read many of Ursula LeGuin’s books about 30 years ago and really enjoyed them.

    Anne – Books of My Heart

    • I have to admit, my concentration for audiobooks is so bad! I like the idea, but my attention drifts. I like them best when the author is also the narrator.

    My TBR is huge too, but on the positive side, I never have nothing to read. I’ve been accepting more books for ARC review too, so I try to read one of the them in between my own pile. Favorite book of October was The City of Ghosts and it was my first V.E. Schwab book too.

    • It’s so silly when I have these piles of books around but resist actually reading them. I’m trying to get into some of the ones I’ve been resisting.
