October was not the best month for me reading wise. The reading and reviewing slumps got me and I managed to finish only 6 books.
It wouldn’t be that bad if I didn’t have all the time in the world to actually read, but it is what it is now. I guess my brain just needed some time off from reading and to focus on other things.
Since then my reading slump has passed and I hope to read 10+ books in November.
This is the last month I’ll be focusing mostly on my Netgalley eARCs because in December I want to read all the books I didn’t get into this year, and of course, my festive novels.
You can expect the reviews for the books I’ve read in the next couple of weeks.
Here are the books I read in October:

If you follow my blog you probably know that I decided to participate in contemporary-a-thon, a readathon that took place last week.
There were 7 challenges and I was really ambitious, which you can read in my TBR post.
However, my reading was not going well last week, and I finished only 2 books, which is even worse then my Reading Rush wrap up was.
The main reason for my failure is the wrong choice of a book. I decided to read How to Make Friends with the Dark as my dark/hard hitting contemporary, and I just couldn’t bring myself to read it faster then I did, because it was so emotional.
If I was smarter, I would read multiple books at time, but I wasn’t, so I guess I learned my lesson for another time.
So in the end I read 757 pages and finished 4 challenges: Read a 2019 release, Read a dark/hard-hitting contemporary, Read a contemporary with an illustrated cover and Read a contemporary with plants on the cover.
These are two books that I have read: and .

Are you ready for the last month of the year? I surely am, and am so excited for the last few books I’ll be reading before the year is over, but firstly, let me show you what books I finished during November.
During November I have read 9 books, and I am pretty satisfied with that.
Now only 9 books keep me from reaching my goal of reading 80 books in 2018.
I mean, I have already reached my Goodreads goal (60 books), but now when I see that I’ve read 71 (in reality, it’s 72 bc one book isn’t listed on Goodreads) I couldn’t help and mentally I increased the number.
