Halloween has come and gone and I can finally get to that jolly festive feeling. I LOVE this time of year. It’s terrifying to think that we’ve already reached the last 2 months of 2017, but there’s always a magic in the air around this time.
I had a good reading month in October. I binge read the Brooklyn Bruiser series by Sarina Bowen and loved it. Honestly, these sports contemporary novels are defining my reading life nowadays. I haven’t been drawn to a fantasy book in months, which sucks cause I have a lot of amazing fantasy books I need to read, but the pull to these sports contemporary novels is just too strong. What I love about Sarina Bowen’s books is that they have that perfect balance between the sports and the romance. You will be swept off your feet by the romances in this series, but there’s also a lot of heart and passion for hockey in them.

Be Jolly. It’s the greatest time of year and truthfully 2017 has not been the best of years. I am determined to make the most of these final two months. I want to be more proactive, on the blog and in life, and be daring. I’m terrible at overthinking and it’s honestly tiring, so I want to jump at any opportunity I can find.
I never set reading goals anymore, but if this sports contemporary kick is here to stay I want to read Until it Fades by K. A. Tucker and Bountiful by Sarina Bowen. I feel like I should try reading another one of my fantasy novels, but if I’m not in the mood I won’t force it.
When it comes to the post, I have the same goal, be more productive. I’ve got a few discussion post ideas but my brain is fried at the minute and can’t seem to find the words for what I want to say.
October was an average month for me.
