Highlights of the Month - October 2017

Hello Everyone,

It's been a bit of a busy month - I read seven books (I think I had a little bit of help along the way...which I will delve into a little further on)
One series that I was thrilled to get back into; was the diaries of Meghan McDonnell. This month I started and finished the forth book in the series, and it is just pure nostalgia for me. Another series that I happily got back into was the third book in the Eva Thorne series by Lorel Clayton.
Another book that I quite enjoyed this month, was Binge Until Tragedy by Ben D'Alessio. There's one book that I enjoyed simply because it had such a nice atmosphere and wonderful descriptions, and that book was 'Crawdad' by Lisa T. Cresswell. I would definitely love to read more books that have wonderful descriptions/atmospheres of places, so if you know of any, PLEASE put it in the comments down below, I would really appreciate it! 
Having said all that, you can obviously tell that I don't have a particular favourite this month; and that's simply because all these books that I mentioned above all have their awesome qualities that I couldn't just pick one!

Monthly Reading Goals:
I have made headway with August's monthly reading goal, and have only started October's (it's been a busy month, like I said), so here is NOVEMBER'S reading goals:
Read either:
A Religious Book
A Nonfiction Book
If I play this one right, I might kill two birds with one stone with this goal; but I still plan on trying to finish August and October's goals.

Last Word:
I am most likely going to have a slightly busy November, thankfully I've also taken some leave days from work as well, and I'm going to still be attempting to do NaNoWriMo as well. Let me know if you're going to be participating. 

Monthly Freebie:
This month's ebook freebie is going to be A Thorne in Time: An Eva Thorne prequel novella by Lorel Clayton. I've always enjoyed Lorel Clayton's books (as you can tell from the beginning of this post), so if you haven't read any of their books, give this one a try and dive into the world of Eva Thorne! Please be aware that I'm not sure how long this ebook is going to be free, so be sure to use this link as soon as possible. 

Hope you had a great month of reading,
Chat Soon,


  1. Great post. The one book that I feel has a wonderful decription of time and place and atmosphere is THE BAY OF NOON by Shirley Hazzard. It needs to be read slowly, to be savoured. This book will take you to the back streets of Naples just after WW2. I've read it so often I have it in ziplock to keep it from falling apart!

    1. Awesome; thank you so much for the recommendation! I'm definitely putting that one on my tbr list. ; )
