October 2014 EOM Wrap Up

October here at Somewhere Only We Know was a month-long event I labeled last year, "All Things Halloween." This month included reviews and features of books that all had some kind of ties to Halloween. Either to get me in the Halloween spirit or just paranormal, supernatural, mystery, thriller, etc.

I didn’t really READ Halloween-y books this month though. And as a matter of fact, October has been my slowest reading month this year. I’m not exactly in a slump. My attention has steadily been pulled away from reading this month. I did manage to read 6 books. *These qualify for the 2014 Series Enders Reading Challenge.

  1. It looks a pretty good month to me, I managed to read 6 books too but I DNF'd 3 :(

    Here's mine:

  2. Fantastic month for you! Happy November reading!

  3. I'm not complaining! DNFing 3 in one month? Wow...that's impressive! I have a hard time DNFing, but I'm trying to get better at putting them down if I'm not enjoying them. Thanks for stopping by and commenting Jane!

  4. Thanks Freda! Hope you have a happy November reading too!
