In October I read 7 physical books, 1 ebook, and 17 audiobooks(!!!!) for a total of 25 books! That is my highest monthly total ever, and I don’t see myself topping it this year. I can’t believe #SpookySeasonReading has come to an end, but I read so many incredible creepy and paranormal books!

2020 READING GOAL PROGRESS
At the beginning of the year, I shared my 2020 reading goals. When I post my wrap up at the end of each month, I also want to reflect on the progress I’m making toward reaching my goals.
Read 100 books: 159/100! Do you think I could make it to 200 this year??
Read diverse authors and genres: While I focused on spooky thrillers and paranormal fantasy this month, I tried to include some authors with diverse backgrounds
Buy fewer books: It was my birthday month so I treated myself a few times!
Finish more series: I finished the Sookie Stackhouse series that I started last year, finished the Anna Dressed in Blood duology, and I caught up on Small Spaces and Blood and Ash. I started two series that I need to finish.
Reread more: Crescent City
Read at least two classics: 2/2 (Haunting of Hill House)
Read one graphic novel each month: The Dark Knight Rises
Fall break definitely helped me read more this month than in previous months, plus the Sookie Stackhouse audiobooks were ridiculously bingeable! I can’t believe there are only two months left in 2020… it’s been a tough year, but there’s so much more I want to read this year!
How did your month go? What was the best book you read in October?
