October Reading Challenge 2020

This post is sooo late, I know.

October is such a weird month for me this year; I’m trying to get back into the swing of the things I usually do since my meds allow me to think more clearly and more for myself. But with that I’m so overwhelmed with how much I’ve missed through out the last few years.

Healing is a journey, not a destination.

Something I try to remind myself whenever I feel myself “disappointed” with my lack of progress. But I’m starting to rebuild things, retry things and reapply for things. One being something that’s always been super important to me, my October Reading Challenge.

And tbh, writing this is a challenge all on it’s own with the baby trying to get on my lap then off my lap then on… CHILD I’M WRITING lol. My ORC has always been important to me because it’s the one month of the year I force myself to read all my “scarier” books. I’m such a wuss and anxiety/intrusive thoughts literally don’t make it any better but I LOVE reading scary/suspenseful books! I always have! I grew up reading Fear Street ONLY. And of alllll the books in that 90’s series, there was only one scary part I remember. It was one of the cheerleader series books; some cheerleaders sister was taking a shower and a ghost or whatever had turned her shower water too hot and killed her. As an adult now I have so many questions at how that was possible. But as a kid, I was freaked out lol.

I’ve found my favorite reads through this challenge over the years including Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan, Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins, and Some Quiet Place by Kelsey Sutton and a ton of books I thought would be scary but I completely enjoyed like Amber House or The Ghost House or Vines.

It’s Monday, what are you reading?

Okay it’s actually Tuesday but WORK WITH ME HERE!

It’s been YEARS since I’ve done one of these! I’m kind of excited to do one today!

WHAT I READ;

I really wasn’t expecting to finish this before I finished this blog post lol but here we are! I super enjoyed this read. It’s not like it was gripping or amazing but I just literally could not put it down!

CURRENTLY READING;

I really wanted to focus on getting through my Kindle Unlimited borrows but I also need to get through my Fall TBR also. So this week I’ll be trying to focus on:

  • Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa
  • The Bookwanderers by Anna James
  • The Time of Green Magic by Hilary McKay

I don’t really know how I’ll do considering my reading habits aren’t what they use to be lol. But I’m glad I’ve been finding time to read more lately… I also need to catch up with my GoodReads challenge since I’ve fallen 3 books behind. Eep.

What are you planning on reading this week?
