The Monthly Recap: October 2018


Hey guys!

October is over and November is finally here! I will now commence the stuffing of my face because the holiday season is upon us. I was at Costco a few days ago and they’ve already busted out the Christmas decorations and yo gurl was not ready for it. It’s too soon for all of that! But I’m getting ahead of myself here so let’s talk about October. October was a bit of a stressful month for me and my insomnia is in full effect so I’ve been barely getting any sleep. I look like a zombie at this point. I’ve also barely had time to blog this month so I’m going to be playing catch up in the beginning of November. Hopefully November is a better month of me in general. Anyways, let’s get to this wrap-up.  

Let’s get started!

I read a total of 17 books this month! Overall I had a pretty good reading month. I read more hits than misses which is something that hasn’t happened in a while. I guess the book gods are finally taking pity on my bookworm soul, lol. My favorite reads were Combust, Next Year in Havana, Royally Yours and The Jerk Duet.

I'm Ari, a local NYC bibliophile and a forever daydreamer. You can usually find me with my nose buried in a book and my head up in the clouds. I am also a coffee addict and a chocolate connoisseur. I fell in love with the romance genre about three years ago and I haven't been able to stop reading about happily-ever-afters, which is ironic because I'm a bit of a cynical romantic in real life, haha. I hope you all enjoy my blog and fangirling with me about all the smutty reads!
