A belated happy Halloween, dear readers! (Sadly, the word belated seems to be quite ubiquitous in my posts these days.) With not a trick-or-treater in sight, I spent a quiet evening at home with the fam watching movies and eating unhealthy snack food. I wish I could say, “watching scary movies,” as that was the plan, but it was not to be. I remember Poltergeist as being positively hair-raising, and Scream as being, well, more scream-inducing. Neither really held up with time, though, so instead we had a good laugh and enjoyed some good company. What more can one ask?
At any rate, October has come and gone, so here’s my little monthly reading recap:
- The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion – 304 pages
- 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami – 944 pages
- The Humans by Matt Haig – 279 pages
- The House at the End of Hope Street by Menna van Praag – 293 pages
- Million Little Mistakes by Heather McElhatton – probably around 100, give or take
- As Chimney Sweepers Come to Dust by Alan Bradley – 358
- Undermajordomo Minor by Patrick DeWitt – 336 pages
So that brings my October total of finished books to seven, with a page count of 2,614. Not bad, I think, as it also doesn’t count any partially-finished books languishing on my nightstand. Hopefully November will meet with equal success!
How was your list for October? If you came across any fantastic books, let me know in the comments below. I’m always on the lookout for the next great read!
Until then, happy reading!
