  1. The first time in a long time I did not finish a book, like yourself I'm learning this is ok. Looks like September was a great month reading wise for you, here's hoping October is as productive.

    1. Yeah - I'm getting better about it too. You shouldn't torture yourself with something you aren't enjoying. It's so hard for me though - I want to know the end anyway lol

  2. I'm sorry you couldn't even finish TTSAO, since I remember you being in love with This Song Will Save Your Life - on the other hand, this one sounds like a minor variation of it in some respect, and the idea at its core (which is basically to stalk a blogger) is awkward, to say the least.

    1. The writing is totally different and it seemed like a mid-grade novel (even thought he character was older). I didn't' even make it to the blog stalking lol

  3. I love the Halloween theme Karen! And excellent job with all the LGBTQ picks, I need to be more like you!

    Is Please Remain Calm a novella? I haven't finished This is Not a Test yet. Maybe I'll do that this month.

    1. It is a novella - you need to read TINaT first though.

  5. Great genre shuffling there. I might have missed it, but did you like Avery Aster's?

    1. I didn't review it (except for a short thing on GR's

      I didn't really like the writing style but if you've read and enjoyed her other books I'm sure you would like this one.

  6. I'm curious what you thought about Craving's Creek. I really liked it - different in some ways than I thought, but it worked well. I have Rebound Remedy to read sometime soon!

    1. I actually bought it by accident. I thought it was a different m/m priest book that everyone was talking about. lol

      I liked it overall with a few minor quibbles.

      Rebound Remedy was cute. It's on Netgalley.

    1. I can read fast - 1 book per day but 24 is high for me. I average around 15 per month. I was on a roll in September lol But now I feel a little burned out.

      Please Remain Calm is INTENSE.
