October Reading Challenge Recap


Time to recap October’s reading challenge: To play catch-up on bestsellers that you missed or ignored. And my word for this month is: FAIL!

I tried. I really tried. But between drafting a new book and having my kids off for fall break (on two different weeks!) it was one of those hectic months where I was scrambling to get everything done, let alone have any quiet reading time.

However, there’s one that I think we can count as a missed bestseller, and that’s Blake Crouch’s Pines. I’m looking forward to finishing this trilogy and then tracking down the TV show that was made from it! And the Erin Bartels book is one that I’ve been eagerly awaiting since it’s release. So I’m saying those kind of count. Hopefully November with its travel to The Art of Writing Conference/Christy Awards will be a better reading month. (I suppose there’s a chance I might read another book in the last four days of the month, but I’m calling that unlikely.)

My October reads were:

  • Pines by Blake Crouch
  • The Words Between Us, Erin Bartels

Did you read any bestsellers that passed you by the first time? What was the best book you read in October?
