My main goal for October is to continue to read books on my TBR pile – a must!
I also plan to read more memoirs and read more in the Maas fantasy series and in the Nesbo Nordic noir series. So enjoyed the first books.
I need to catch up on 2 challenges so I will be reading more for “52 Books in 52 Weeks” and the Popsugar Goodreads Challenges.
I am also committing to reading all 100 best reads from the “Great American Read”. I have already read 37 of the books. My pick for best read: To Kill a Mockingbird. This will take me into 2019 for sure!
