After a pretty sparse blogging and reading month in September, I was determined to do better in October. And I did – for the first couple of weeks. The last couple both my reading and my blogging took a little bit of a hit. I think I burned myself out on it too quickly. However, I’m still overall pleased with how the month went. Also this month I published my 500th post!

Reviewing the Unreviewed: October 2015
Looking forward to November
Today is my birthday! I’m going to have some lunch at Bonefish Grill (Bang Bang Shrimp!) and then go to the kick-off event Write-In for NaNoWriMo, which I’m doing for the second year in a row. This means that my blog will be pretty sparse on the reviews – and really most everything else – in November. I’ll still be here, though, so don’t forget about me!

Many many happy returns of the day! 😀
*Hugs* *sends cookies* ❤
This is my first year in NaNoWriMo. I haven't thought about a story yet. :p
You’re welcome! 🙂
Oh and good luck with NaNo! Hopefully you can just start writing and an idea will come to you. I have a basic idea, but I’m not really sure where it goes yet. Guess I’ll find out! My username is Stephanie1 if you want to add me as a writing buddy 🙂
Yea sure, mine is Dimple. 🙂
I just added you as my buddy. 🙂
Awesome! I will add you back! Happy writing!
Happy Happy Birthday!!! I hope you enjoy your day!
Your numbers impress me every month.
Thank you!! I am pretty happy with my numbers for the month, though I feel like I could’ve gotten another couple books done if I could focus these past couple weeks haha.
Happy birthday! Great wrap up post! I’m hoping to read the second book in the Helen Grace series soon, I read and enjoyed Eeny Meany a while ago and would love to read the other books.
Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier 🙂
Happy birthday! So cool it being at the start of NaNo! Hope you’re having a really great day. 🙂 And that the writing’s going/gone well. 😀
Thanks! I haven’t started writing yet actually. There’s a write in at 4:00 this afternoon, do I’m saving it up. How is yours doing?
Made my word count for the day! 😊 I’m never sure of time zones. Sending good writing thoughts. ☺
Woo-hoo! Good job! It’s a late afternoon gathering. I felt kind of weird not writing anything yet, but I was busy anyways, so hopefully it goes well.
I didn’t write while about that time in my time zone, as I was busy too. And I have yet to write anything today, and it’s 20 past 5. hope it went well. 🙂
I got just over 3k words yesterday so I was happy with it. I still have a few hours left of work before I can start writing again today. Hopefully by then I’ll figure out where the story is going next.
Happy Birthday Sephanie! Today is my youngest son’s birthday. Good luck with your writing.
Thanks! We’re twinsies! Tell him happy birthday to me!
Happy birthday! It’s my uncle’s 55th!
Thank you! Happy Birthday to your uncle, as well!
Happy Birthday! And congrats on your 500th post.
Good on you, you read a lot this month.
Congrats on reaching your 500th post! That’s amazing, I am not even up to 100 yet and I’ve been blogging for almost 5 months now haha. I hope you had a fantastic birthday!
I am also a little gleeful to see you rate Confess by Colleen Hoover low, so I had so much trouble sticking to that book – bah!
Thanks! I’ve been blogging about 2 1/2 years so it’s a little less impressive haha. Always nice to see someone else who isn’t obsessed with CoHo. I just don’t quite get it.
Nice wrap up!! I just read this and realised I haven’t done my October wrapup yet! Kudos for doing all those reviews. Initially I had planned to do a review (not including those for book/blog tours) every monday but I really have to start planning and writing stuff like this down. I love doing the Tours and Blitzs and Cover Reveals but I feel like they are taking over which is not my vision for my blog so I am being very choosy for next year so that I have time and space for other posts.
Thanks! I am too much of a mood reader – and mood reviewer – to make myself schedule reviews for certain times. I have gotten better at writing reviews and then saving them for a time when I know the blog will be sparser instead of posting them right away like I used to. I agree the other stuff is fun to do, but when I have nothing but that I start to get bored with myself.
