Monthly Inventory: October 2015

October 2015

I’m going to be blunt: school has been kicking my ass! It has steadily been decreasing my reading and blogging time–which totally sucks! Midterms are over so hopefully I’ll be able to get more done in November but finals are just around the corner…

October was also a tense month because the Toronto Blue Jays made the MLB play-offs for the first time in over 20 years! I live in Toronto so it was a lot of fun to see the support the Jays had in their home city. Unfortuately, they didn’t make it to the World Series but it was a hard fought battle. On the bright side, they really brought Canada together and heightened baseball fever here (usually hockey is our thing). Plus, they inspired some great book-spine poetry as the Toronto Public Library and the Kansas City Library had a friendly twitter feud. One of my highlights of that series for sure! Here’s my favourite:

*Note: If the review is available, click on the cover! However, due to the nature of my blog (ie I review whole series) it often takes me a few weeks to publish a full review (pending book availability) so look forward to seeing some of these reviews in the upcoming weeks/months if there is no link available!

Fair Game (The Rules, #1) Easy Love (Boudreaux, #1) Always Been You (Unforgettable You, #3) Heart and Soul (Lost and Found, #5) Losers Weepers (Lost and Found, #4) Tempt Me Like This (The Morrisons, #2)

I blame Kobo and their awesome 50% off promo for the end of the month…

  • I updated my Standalone & Series Review Directory
  • I am not taking any review requests for the month of November
    • This means I will not be accepting requests from Authors or Publishers who would like a review to be posted in November or December. I plan to reopen this in December if all goes well with school.
      • If you are a reader who has a series that they think I would like or want me to review, please feel free to contact me via the form on my Contact page. I might not get to it right away, but I will definitely add it to my TBR and I am always looking for great recommendations!

I went to see Ricky Martin on his One World Tour which was a lot of fun! His song La Mordidita has been in my head all month! I’ve also been listening to The Weeknd in preparation for his concert in November! AND, best of all, my favourite band ever Marianas Trench released their newest album (Astoria) so I’ve been enjoying all their new music 😉
