October 2018 Reading Wrap Up

In Her Bones - Kate Moretti Mr. Churchill's Secretary - Susan Elia MacNeal Radio Free Vermont: A Fable of Resistance - Bill McKibben Don't Call Me Princess: Essays on Girls, Women, Sex, and Life - Peggy Orenstein

Big thank you to Obsidian Blue and MR for another successful Halloween Bingo. I am all good on suspense/horror/creepy reading until next year. Also a thank you to Dewey Read-a-thon, for without that one weekend of nothing but reading I don't think I would have gotten my first bingo. I read for a total of four bingos (two columns, one row, one diagonal).

 

Not much in quantity, but good stuff quality wise. I found a new series to glom (Maggie Hope mysteries) and a new author to read more from (Kate Moretti). I'm feeling some strong effects of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), so the reading challenges and read-a-thons helped me get out of my inertia.
