SUMMARY: october

After I hit the reading rut that was September, I’m happy to say that I bounced back and read more than <10 books! October had so many great releases, and I’m starting to make a dent in all my 2020 ARC’s. This month, I read 18 books, which means only 25 more books to beat my reading challenge last year.

Also, read on to find out more about my time at Texas Teen Book Festival! I had so much fun there; book festivals are always the best.

HIGHLIGHTS OF OCTOBER:

I got to attend Texas Teen Book Festival earlier this month! It was super fun meeting the authors of some of my favorite books and being around other bookish people. I’m looking forward to the next one (and hopefully NTTBF in March)!

I was lucky enough to get ARCs for The Shadows between Us by Tricia Levenseller and Time of Our Lives by Emily Wibberley and Austin Siegemund-Broka! Tricia was there as well, so I got that ARC signed, and I also met and got books signed by Kat Cho, Katy Rose Pool, and Mary H.K. Choi. I also spoke with Sandhya Menon for a little, which was great because I’m on her street team!

You can read my reviews for Wicked Fox by Kat Cho, There Will Come a Darkness by Katy Rose Pool, and Permanent Record by Mary H.K. Choi now, as well as an interview I did with Katy Rose Pool.
