October reading wrap up

Seriously, you guys. When the hell did I get so bad at blogging? I've been meaning to write a couple of reviews for Classics Club for like A MONTH and I still haven't done it. At least it's vaguely near the start of the month so this one is timely??

Sigh.

Anyway, let's wrap up my reading month, shall we?

Books read: 35. I honestly don't know how else I have time to do anything else.
New vs rereads: 24 vs 11. Pathetic.
Most read genre: Once again, contemporary. Though crime and historical fiction were both only one book behind!
Favourite book: If rereads count, then it's Fangirl. Always and forever. But of the new books I read this month, Ink and Bone by Rachael Caine was definitely the stand out.
Least favourite book: No contest at all. Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. I only reread it because we were recapping it for Snark Squad.
Favourite cover: The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness. Glorious.

Diverse Books Project: It's plodding merrily along. I'm up to the last few weeks now, and it's getting a little tricky to find books that are easy to access but that aren't set in the US. But I shall persevere!










In October, I ended up reading 3 graphic novels, 3 non-fiction books and 29 novels. There are links to all of my Goodreads reviews below.
