Reading Recap: October 2018

Wow, I’m running behind on my reading recaps.  Also wow, my reading has slowed down so much this fall!  With all the craziness on my plate, I’m less likely to be found reading and more likely to while away the evening hours screwing around on my phone and going to bed early.

This month, I unintentionally read only female writers.  I also read primarily YA.  Considering I haven’t been following new releases in the genre that closely this year, this took me by surprise.  Looking at the list, there’s a lot of fluff here.  But it was enjoyable fluff that distracted me from a hectic fall.  For that, I’m grateful.

These last fall days

In Minnesota, we’ve been blessed by an absolutely stunning Autumn. The brilliant colors have now faded, but I continue to enjoy the crunch of leaves beneath my feet as I walk to class each morning. Usually, the end of October marks the beginning of the downward spiral into the seemingly unending winter, but this year, the days continue to be perfect.

I took advantage of the sunshine the other day and spent some time on a park bench in the middle of campus with a book.  What a wonderful way to spend one of the last lovely days of the year.

What am I reading? Lady Audley’s Secret by Mary Elizabeth Braddon.

Who knows when I’ll next have the chance to bask in the sun?

This is Minnesota.  Winter is coming.
