Yes, this October “wrap-up” post is late. Really late. But the beginning of November has been a whirlwind. :)
Soooo, we’ll revisit October now!
I love October. I believe I’ve mentioned that though. ;)
I don’t know why that, when I go to write this post, I can’t think of any major highlights to report from the previous month….The zoo was one highlight…that was lots of fun. And my birthday of course…I’m an official adult now. :D I don’t really feel much different though. ;) How about I do what I do best, and talk books? I feel so much more comfortable talking about that. XD
This picture shows the books I acquired during the month of October. I didn’t actually think I’d have much to show as the month started out, but it’s a lovely stack!
I got “Arabian Nights” and a Norwegian-English handbook at our library book sale, my Mum and sister found me “She Walks in Beauty” at a thrift store, I found “Neela” and “Cecile” at a thrift store as well ~ I was really happy about finding “Neela” because it’s India, and I used to own this book and loved it. I received “Keep Holding On” by Melissa Tagg from my lovely family for my birthday, and I bought “The Hope of Shridula”, “On Distant Shores”, and “A Bride for Keeps” from CBD when they were having a super good sale that I couldn’t miss out on. “Missing” came from Ashley with whom I did a book swap (can’t wait to read it!), and “Shadow of the Storm” was a gift from Soleil! Thank you ladies very very much! And last but not least is “Far Afield” and that’s a review book from Blogging for Books. :)
As for what I read… “God’s Daughter” by Heather Day Gilbert, “One Enchanted Christmas” by Melissa Tagg, “Three Little Words” by Melissa Tagg, “Keep Holding On” by Melissa Tagg, “The Merchant and the Thief” by Ravi Zacharias (a kid’s book technically :D), and “The Sound of Diamonds” by Rachelle Rea Cobb.
Primarily Melissa Tagg books, it looks like, huh?! XD
In October, I consumed a great amount of tea, plenty of hot cocoa, and added another blanket to my bed for the coooold nights. I love it! :D I’m sure all of these things will continue throughout the rest of the Winter. ^.^
Sooooo….that’s about it. I acquired a new “obsession” in October, but I’m not going to go into that. ;)
Did you read some good books during October? Have any books you want to read before 2017? :)
