Ali’s October 2019 Monthly Wrap-Up

Linking up with Monthly Wrap-Up Round Up at Feed Your Fiction Addiction.

Happy November everyone!! I just can’t believe the end of the year is here and the holiday season is upon us!!

I read 16 books in October and 10 of those were 5 or 4.5 star reads for me, so that’s a pretty good reading month as far as I’m concerned!
I also participated in TropeAThon 2 this month. I finished 5 out of the 8 tropes. Not bad for 1 week!

Quips & Quotes 10/27/19

I LOVE keeping track of quotes that speak to me. Some turn me to mush. Some are profound and make me think. Some are just funny or entertaining. I often include a quote or two in my reviews, but I thought it would be fun to start a weekly post sharing my favorites from the previous week. So, without further ado, here’s my first Quips & Quotes post!

But she has a problem, she can’t read maps and her sense of direction is almost as bad as her comedic timing is stellar. Therefore, when Sienna’s latest starring role takes her to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park she finds herself continually lost while trying to navigate the backroads of Green Valley, Tennessee.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a place to meet up and share what you have been, and are about to be reading over the week. It’s a great post to organise yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment and er… add to your groaning TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started on J Kaye’s blog and then was hosted by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at The Book Date. Jen Vincent, Teach Mentor Texts, and Kellee of Unleashing Readers decided to give It’s Monday! a kidlit focus. If you read and review books in children’s literature – picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels or anything in those genres – join them.
