October Wrap-Up


I've never done a wrap-up post before, but I figured I'd give it a go because, hey, I like new things, and I like wrap-up posts. It's Halloween. Whatever. Eat some candy.

You can find the WEIRDEST things on the internet.

The best books I reviewed this month:

Premeditated by Josin M. McQuein
Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard
Ten by Gretchen McNeil

Most popular posts this month:

The Sorting Hat: YA Heroines Edition
Do Authors Owe Readers Anything?
Baking the Books: Harry Potter Pumpkin Pasties
Top Ten Best/Worst Series Enders 
Gender-Bending and Why It's Awesome 
How to Survive the Apocalypse (As Taught by YA Fiction) 

I did my first ever vlog review:



Things that happened this month: 

I got invited to have lunch with a big time author when their tour stops in Southern California! More deets when I can give them

Christina from A Reader of Fictions came to visit me! And oh, what larks were had!

I got addicted to Kdrama (COFFEE PRINCE!!!) and manga (HANA-KIMI!!!) In other words, GENDER-BENDING. And hot asian boys. And shippy feels. NNNNGH!

I baked all the pumpkin flavored things I could: pumpkin pasties, pumpkin snickerdoodles, JUST PUMPKIN.

I bawled my little face off while reading a book. It's been a while since I wept that openly due to fiction. I LOVE that feeling.

Here's the giveaway that's still going on:

 

Win Champion poster and tattoos and see the kick-ass trailer!

Here is the song I am currently obsessed (and I do mean OBSESSED) with:



Here's a preview at some of the books I plan to read next month!
