October Highlights

Time is flying by. October is already over and now we are entering my favorite two months of the year! I LOVE November and December. Always have. My birthday and Thanksgiving are in November, so I love getting cake, pie, and turkey! And I love December. I love the decorating for Christmas (AFTER Thanksgiving). 
I didn't read as many books as I anticipated this month, but I am still happy with what I did read.

  1. Unbreakable (The Legion #1) by Kami Garcia
  2. Unmarked (The Legion #2) by Kami Garcia
  3. Amy and Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson
  4. My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories edited by Stephanie Perkins
  5. Crown of Glass (Throne of Glass #2) by Sarah J. Maas
  6. Blood of My Blood (Jasper Dent #3) by Barry Lyga
