What I’ve been up to this month

I have been in an absolutely HORRIBLE reading slump!! I picked up probably 9 or 10 books that I couldn’t get into (which I talk about in this post). I blame Muse of Nightmares, which blew me away! I can’t seem to kick it. I’ve been wanting to re-read both Harry Potter and my fave Adult series, The Wayfarer Redemption, so after Horror October is over if I’m still in a slump I will probably try picking those up!
