October Month In Review

Okay, this is freaky. Does anyone else feel like it was only June yesterday? Two more months in 2015!

October has been fairly good to me! Had my first blog tour, busy month in general…

Find out more about October below!

Books

For the month of October, I have read 3 books and I have written 2 reviews. Unfortunately, I did not get much reading done, which is terrible! Better luck next month!

BLOG

Once again, this month has proved to be busy. It was blog-ahead month, so I was busy preparing my blog for the holidays. For blog-ahead month, I was able to prepare and schedule 40 posts that will be published on or after November 1st. I surpassed my goal!

Before I get to my stats… I would just like to say thank you to all of my readers! I surpassed 500 views this month. First month ever, since I have been blogging. My highest day hit 58 views in one day. Amazing! I love you guys!

I keep inching my way towards 100 followers. I will make it soon! Here’s a look at my stats for October:

LIFE

Halloween! My cute kiddo went as a fireman. He had so much fun collecting tons of candy. His new thing to say is “Trick or Treat!” Hahaha. Sooo cute!

Anyway, not too much happened here. I finished another class last week and dove straight into a grammar class. Oooh, I love this stuff; wanting to become an editor has a hand in that. 😉 We do go on another road trip, up to visit my parents in South Dakota. That was a blast! Check out my Road-Trip Edition of the Bookish weekly meme.

I did go on my first ever book buying ban. Man, let me tell you. This sucks! But I am using the time to crack down on my NetGalley ARCs. I feel so behind! I had 5 books with publish dates in October. I only read 2, but reviewed 1 of them, plus one review from a book I read last month. November, I have a couple more as well. They’re piling up! One thing that helps, is that I am taking my father-in-law to doctor appointments, so I read in the hospital. Sometimes, it is just a couple pages. Other times, it’s a couple chapters. At least I’m making progress. 😀


Well, everyone, that is about it. I knew October would be a little bit better! Cross your fingers and wish me luck for November! Feel free to link your month in review posts in the comments below (if you want!). I’d love to see how you guys are doing as well.
