I Read My Most Anticipated 2019 Release // October 2018 Wrap-Up

Another month. Another wrap up. I can’t believe the year is almost over, but it also feels like it’s been the longest year. I’ve already switched gears from Halloween to Christmas because it’s honestly the most wonderful time of year. But before I get too carried away thinking about Christmas, let’s get into my October wrap up.

WHAT I READ IN OCTOBER

This month I read a total of SIX books, which is a nice bounce back from last month’s reading slump. My average rating was 4.1. I enjoyed all of the books I read this month. However, my absolute favorite was none other than The Kingdom of Copper by S.A. Chakraborty. TKOC was my most anticipated 2019 release and it lived up to all my expectations. I don’t know how I’m going to survive the wait for the final book in this trilogy. Since TKOC doesn’t come out until January, I will post my review closer to the release date.
