This was a slow month on the blog!
I’m going through a serious reading slump and just can’t get interested in anything!
And I have a big bunch of unsolicited review books that sound awesome, as well as a bunch of review books I was excited to request at the time!
But hopefully that will pick up seeing as how I’m hosting a tour stop on 9th November.
Things will probably be a bit quiet in November too as I take on a personal project.
But stick around, we’re still in business!
Also, I managed to get a BINGO in the Booklikes Halloween Bingo Challenge! Unfortunately I submitted my review too late to enter for a prize, but I’m happy that I made at least one bingo!
