October 2022 Reading Wrap-Up

Another month has come and gone and we’re over halfway through the next, but better late than never. Let’s see how my month went.

Some October highlights and lowlights ~

  • Went camping at Lake Claiborne State Park
  • Got to go hiking while camping!
  • Enjoyed some birding and added some new birds to my tracker
  • Finished the Death Note series (SPOILER: I enjoyed it more before L was taken out)
  • Discovered my mom was suffering from pulmonary embolisms
  • Watched a football game at Louisiana Tech
  • Did my first buddy read with Julie @ One Book More
  • Watched some movies: Hocus Pocus 2, Top Gun Maverick, Dracula Untold, and The School for Good and Evil
  • Enjoyed a new-to-me restaurant – Sundown Tavern in Ruston, LA

Books I Read




It was a slow reading month for me, but I was completely okay with that. I only read 15 books, but they were all at least 4 stars. I got to spend a lot of time outdoors, and it was finally cool enough to enjoy it.

Favorite Book of the Month

I had such a great time bingeing this series with Julie. I was completely addicted, and this was my favorite book in the trilogy.

  2. You are doing pretty good with the challenges. I totally understand not having more non-fiction read, though, I thought you were reading a few with your daughter for school (?), so you should be able to make that happen, no? I am not familiar with that 5-star books, but whoo hoo! I love high ratings.

    • Thanks! I’m reading one nonfiction with my daughter, but it’ll probably be the end of the school year before we finish it. The other book I’m reading with her is a historical fiction. I do have three other nonfiction books going at the moment, though. You never know. It could happen. I love the high ratings, too!!

    • Thanks! She has a hoard of doctors appointments. They think she has a blood disorder and will have to stay on blood thinners permanently. They’re currently testing to see if it’s a genetic disorder. She’s been struggling with being short of breath, but she’s still working hard and won’t slow down at work at all.
