My Month in Books | October Stats

Happy November, bookworms! Before the new month gets underway, let’s take a look back at October.

Into the stats!

I definitely thought this month would be the month I finally start to slow down after the crazy August and September, but I still managed a lot of books. I had a slightly better reading month with a long string of 4 stars with an average of 3.9, but again I only had two standouts out of 20 so hopefully I’ll find more gems soon. Also, the state of my shelves is.. shameful. I did really poorly on the whole “OWNtober” thing and only read 4 books from my physical TBR. Hopefully Nonfiction November will help with that. I also read a majority 2017/2018 releases, which I hadn’t realized as it was happening (I typically think I read more backlist than that).

PS: I made the charts like I wanted to but now realize they aren’t very accessible to people with vision impairment. So that’s still a work in progress. I’ll figure out a different way to do it next time.
