October Recap

I managed to get back into the swing of blogging a bit in October after my weird reading slump. Unfortunately, I spent the entire month unemployed and have been trying not to get depressed about that. I somehow feel more busy than I did when I was working. Lack of routine I guess. I better get a job next month though. Or else.

Books Reviewed in October:

The Scandalous Sisterhood of Prickwillow Place - 3.5 hearts
Gideon Smith and the Brass Dragon - 4 hearts
Centaur Rising - 3.5 hearts
Blue Mountain - 3 hearts
Who R U Really? - 3 hearts

Average Rating = 3.4 hearts - pretty ho-hum this month.
