Is it really November already? I love the holidays, but I can’t believe there are only two months left for 2019! We’ve been enjoying the colors of fall and had an excellent Halloween despite the snow.
October was a very good month. I managed to post more than I have since June of last year! It started out with my very first wrap-up ever for September which included some birthday gifts I received.

- It Would be Night in Caracas by Karina Sainz Borgo
- Last Pen Standing by Vivian Conroy
- Raising Bookworms by Emma Walton Hamilton
- Gated by J.D Ventura

I actually completed my Goodreads challenge! I’ve read a good amount of childrens books this year, which has obviously helped. This number should go a bit higher with books planned for the next few months.
I decided to take up the 20 Books for Christmas Challenge. I chose 10 books for this year and managed to read one book for the 20booksforchristmas challenge in October.
- 20 Books for Christmas Challenge
- Christmas with a Cowboy (seen above)
I didn’t read anything for the Retelling Reading Challenge this month. There are so many other books lined up now for the rest of the year, but I’m hoping to get at least one or two more retellings in.
I did a health update which was much needed! I’m already ready to post another one now with new labs back again. It’s no wonder I’ve been feeling icky, but I’m hanging in there. Another update post should be up in November.
Fall always reminds me of Hansel and Gretel, so I brought back an older post of Neil Gaiman’s version and also shared a few other versions.
Thanks for checking out my October Wrap-up! How did you do this month? What are your plans for the rest of the year? Feel free to share your wrap-up links below!
