October Wrap Up

month 10 16


News

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!
