October 2019 Reading Wrap-up!  #bookblog #amreading #bookreview

October wrap

What a great October! I went on my first vacation since 2011 and I think I needed that break more than I even realized! I didn’t read nearly as much as I anticipated while on vacation… and that is okay. The books were waiting for me when I got back.  🙂

Below you will find a summary of my October reading, upcoming books, and my stats so far this year.
