Being 3 days into my reading challenge I’ve already noticed a reading pattern. I’m doing the bare minimum. I’m getting my 30 mins in and I’m just being lazy and not challenging myself to read more. Today is Sunday, August 4th. Which means it’s the last day before the new work week starts. When August 1st hit I started a new book. That book is Mangus Chase and the Gods of Asgard: The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan. I’m hoping to finish this book by the end of the week. Since I have read a total of 83 pages so far, that means I need to read at least 68 pages each day this week in order to finish my goal. Will I achieve this weekly goal? Stay tuned to find out later this week!
I created a tag back in the good old summer of 2014 (HOLY MOLY that was 5 years ago… I can’t believe how fast time has gone). And I recently have been trying to do it every summer now. So this year I did it once again! Here’s The Summer Book Tag!
Questions for The Summer Book Tag:

Find a book cover with Yellow on it.

Summer weather is finally here and I’m so excited that winter is finally behind us! The other day I started thinking about summer reading challenges and my library’s summer reading challenge. Which lead me to the idea of this video! I plan on getting a lot of summer reading done this year so I made a TBR as well (I’m not the biggest TBR fan but we shall see how this goes). What are some of your summer reading goals or TBR? 🙂
Recently I went to my first ALA Midwinter conference! Going into this conference I had two ARC copies I wanted to get… and well I got a lot more than that!

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!
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.
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 ⅘ stars. I’m 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.
So for this week’s topic of Top Ten Tuesday, the topic is a Halloween related freebie. This could be anything from top ten scary books, bookish Halloween costumes, scary book covers, or whatever you can come up with. The topic I went with it is Top Halloween Reads.
