Chipotle Book Tag

If you would ask me what are my favorite things in life I would be able to answer that question in a heartbeat! Chipotle and books. So since I love these two items so much and talk about them consistently my mind had this amazing idea the other night. Let’s combine Chipotle and books and make a book tag about it. And ladies and gentlemen that is what I did!

Here are the questions to the tag. Feel free to add or subtract questions based on your Chipotle order. Don’t forget to hit the subscribe button since I’m so close to 1,400 subscribers and I will be doing a holiday giveaway soon!

Questions:

1. Rice: What book is the foundation of your reading?
2. Meat: A book that has a lot to offer?
3. Veggies: A book that is just there/alright.
4. Salsa: A book that has spiced up your life?
5. Cheese: A good wholesome book.
6. Lettuce: A light quick read.
7. Hot sauce: A book that is terrifyingly spooky and hot.
8. Chips and Salsa: A book that you could snack on forever.

 

October Wrap Up

Ah, the month of October was a refreshing spooky month filled with great reading. I ended up reading 4 books and the overall rating was ‚Öė stars. I‚Äôm also so glad that the Spook-A-Thon had happened this month which got me the drive to read Halloween vibed books.

I’m also sad that October is over. I was getting in this reading groove and it was fun and made reading seem not like a chore. Now that Halloween is over I’m hoping to get back into a schedule where I can make more time to read and also bullet journal my reading progress this month. I also have a few goals that I want to make a list of to try to complete by the end of the year.

Anyways, I hope you enjoy my October Wrap Up and I wish you the very best reading month in November.

3. Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

The main character is allergic to everything and I’m allergic to basically any animal that has fur so I think I could relate a lot to this book.

4. Missoula by Jon Krakauer

This book takes place not too far from where I live. Even though this book is about a serious topic, I’d still love to read it and get to know more about the situation that went on.
