As you can see, I ended up with A LOT of new books; 18 books have been added to my huge TBR pile which isn’t ideal. I’ve had a bit of a CFS relapse the last week as well which has limited my reading time so fingers crossed October is a more productive reading month.

    Good luck with catching up on your TBR! I could use a book-buying ban in my life. I have too many unread ones sitting around. Happy October!

    You had such a great reading month! 15 books! I’m a little bit jealous 😀
    I really need to start the Nevernight trilogy. Hopefully in October *fingers crossed*

    What did you think about Kingdom of Souls? I tried reading it this month… but dnf’d half way through.

      I actually enjoyed Kingdom of Souls but I can see it won’t be for a lot of people. I hope you enjoy the Nevernight trilogy though. Happy October! 🎃
