Like most month’s this year, I feel like October came and went in a flash!
Between life, work and vacation, I didn’t get much reading in. (That’s also why this post is happening super later than normal!). It helped my numbers a lot that I read a lot more novellas or shorter novels than I usually do. But, that still didn’t stop me from completing my Goodreads Goal ahead of schedule! Once again, I underestimated my reading prowess for the yearbut given the last few months, it’s a good thing I got ahead of schedule earlier this year because I’m not sure I would have reached it otherwise.

Total for October 2018: 11 Books Read + 4 Novellas Read
DNF’d: 4 Books
Last October: 16 Books Read + 0 Novellas Read + 1 DNFs
Standout Read (★★★★★)
Biggest Let Down (★)
I was super excited to return to this world with a brand new set of leads but this story took a turn/approach I did not appreciate in the slightest. What a disappointment!

You can always get the full details on all my challenges on my dedicated page but here is a quick update:
5 Year 5 Book Challenge: Only Between Us | 17 of 25 Titles Read – Slightly Behind
Goodreads Challenge: 15 books added | 202/190 Books – COMPLETED!
52 Sequel Challenge: 5 Sequels | 43/52 Sequels – Slightly Behind
Tackling the TBR Challenge: 2 books added | 26/36 Books – Slightly Behind
I’ve seen this meme floating around and thought it was a great idea to help me tackle my TBR list and reach that less than 500 goal. The idea is to go through 5-10 books on your Goodreads TBR list chronologically and decide if they should stay or go. I usually do a big Goodreads Purge twice a year but I like the idea of doing a little bit at a time and have decided to do this on a monthly basis.
This month (7 new to me series + 3 previously started series):
Pass: 6 | Keep: 4
Did I give up on any too soon? Let me know in the comments below!
The main focus this month is to clean up my ARCs and get some reading challenge titles under my belt. Fingers crossed!
What were your biggest reading or personal accomplishments of the past month?
