Remember that time I wrote wrap-ups at the tail end of a month so that you could read them in, like, the beginning of the month they were designed to follow? Yeah, me neither. Just kidding, I do. I’ve just been in one hell of a reading slump this month, and nothing I touch is appealing. This is basically the worst, and the book blogger’s ultimate Achilles heel: nobody likes a slump, especially those of us who rely on the exact opposite of a slump to bring us blog content.
I read four books in October, which is double what I read in September, and makes up in advance for the craptastic November I am having.
Pages Read: 1,505, an average of 376 pages per book

Least Favorite: Jinxed
Most Favorite: The Astonishing Color of After
I read some pretty cerebral, thought-provoking stuff in October, and I’m pretty grateful for it. I truly enjoyed everything I cracked the cover of this past month, and even though all four of these books could not be more different – they range from the aftermath of a school shooting to robotic pet cats – they were each uniquely awesome in their own ways.
Straight-up, if I am being honest, if I finish Jodi Picoult’s A Spark of Light this month it will be a miracle. She is my favorite author and yet I am not even 200 pages into this book and I’ve been reading it for damn near two weeks.
What did you read in October? Point me to your post since it’s halfway through November and you probably wrote yours two weeks ago. Whoops.
