Whew! Here we are in October already - before we know it the holidays will be upon us! The weather has started cooling off lately and we've been seeing a lot more rain. I'm loving it! Fall weather is definitely my favorite. I've been looking forward to October for months now as this month brings the new seasons of The Walking Dead AND Stranger Things. I'm so pumped! I'm also really hoping to watch the upcoming movie, The Snowman, based off of Jo Nesbo's book that I read a few weeks back. So many good things all at once!
We survived our crazy (but awesome) sports filled weekend last weekend. I think we ended up watching two high school football games, one flag football game, and five softball games. It was non-stop and by Sunday I was truly exhausted - it was worth it though! Next weekend is going to be more of the same other than I'm not driving three hours away to watch my oldest play his freshman football game. We will stick with watching him play JV at home instead. Sports seasons are starting to wrap up. I'm not sure how much we will really slow down as my youngest has signed up to play basketball this year for the first time. My daughter will be practicing softball all winter long and I'm pretty sure my oldest will be training for football that entire time too. It never ends but I know that I will miss it when they get older. I've got two weeks worth of reading to catch you up on so let's move on to books. I've finished three books since my last reading update. Not too bad considering how much we have had going on. I read the following books:
Asylum by Jeannette De Beauvoir - I absolutely loved this book and am kicking myself for waiting so long to read it! It was based off of true events in Canada's history which made it all the more horrifying but it was such a compelling mystery. I'm going to try to write up a coherent review of it but this is one that I can't say enough good things about!
Death Among the Doilies by Mollie Cox Bryan - This was an enjoyable cozy mystery although it wasn't my favorite. I liked it enough to want to continue on with the series but I had a few issues with it. I'll be sharing my thoughts on this book soon as well.
Someone Else's Skin by Sarah Hilary - This was another great read!! My husband is two for two on picking great books for me to read.....I may make him always choose my next read if he keeps this up. LOL! I found this one to be such a page turner and completely unexpected. I cannot wait to continue on with this series!
I'm now reading the following books:
Beneath the Surface by Sibel Hodge is my current kindle read. I'm not very far into it yet but I'm already intrigued and enjoying it. Never Tell by Alafair Burke will be my next print read but I haven't yet begun reading (my husband picked it). I've enjoyed Burke's books before so I'm really looking forward to reading this review copy which has been languishing on my shelves.
New additions to my reader thanks to NetGalley include:
So many books! I really, really need to work on staying away from NetGalley more and focus on catching up on some of these amazing sounding books. I keep telling myself that but it hasn't worked yet. I really need to focus on writing up reviews today since I probably won't be able to next weekend. I also need to focus on my laundry piles as usual as I've been seriously slacking lately. I'm planning on participating in Blog Ahead this month although I haven't officially signed up for it yet. I feel like there were a couple of bookish/blog events this month that I wanted to participate in. Maybe I will write a sign up post for those today too if I can figure out what they were. LOL!
Tell me what you've been reading lately or better yet what blogging events are you participating in during October? I'd love to know!
Happy Sunday and Happy Reading!
