October was..... I don't know. I didn't get much reading done though, that's for sure.
I loved Muffins and Mourning Tea which I knew I would. It is book five in the Oxford Tearoom Mystery series that I love so much. This one was no different. It was awesome!
It took forever to finish this book and that's the main reason I didn't get much read in October. It was a good book, but it just could not hold my interest. When I'm really stressed out it takes a good book to keep me interested. I just had a lot going on... this book does fill the H book category though, so I'm getting close to finishing the whole alphabet.
Also I forgot to mention a book I read... I think in September.
This was a short story, so I don't know if I want it to count for my list, but if I can't find another X book, it may have to. I actually really liked this book and I normally hate short stories because they just aren't long enough for me to get invested in the characters. This one was really well written though and I enjoyed it.
Sorry for the short descriptions. It's hard to write about them when I wait so long to make the post. I need to do better about staying caught up but I'm so busy, it's hard.
So the points for October are M=3 and H=4, so 7 total. Also the X is 8 points. All I have left for the alphabet is D, which I'm in the middle of right now. Other than that it will be just keep on reading to accumulate points. I also might try to find a full length book for X. Any suggestions?
I'm thinking about not doing a challenge next year and spending my reading time on blogs instead, because I don't have time to do both... I may still do a monthly post on the books I read though because this has been the only way I've ever successfully kept track of what I've read. I've been trying to keep book lists since I was a kid and never did keep up with it. It's too bad because it would be awesome to know how many books I've read in my entire life. I know it's a LOT!! I read more when I was a kid than I do now lol.
