October 2020 Reading Wrap-up! #BookBlog #BookReview #WrapUp

I haven’t done a monthly wrap-up since June! I fell into a weird reading slump practically all summer. I was reading a book here or there, but I was certainly off my normal pace by quite a bit. I finally feel like I got back into the swing of things in October and I am so excited to be reading again! I’m also ecstatic to report that 12 out of the 14 books I read this month were NetGalley ARCs so I am getting caught up on some of my backlog! I am still behind on posting some of my reviews, but hopefully I will catch up with those in the next week. 

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