October 2021 Reading Wrap Up

Hello Gemmies! October was another really great reading month for me. This time I set three goals for myself.

1. Take the pressure off myself from posting blog posts each day

2. Read a new to me author

3. Put together and decorate a TBR Cart

I think I did pretty well sticking to my goals. While I did not put together and decorate my TBR cart, but I did buy one, so I'm counting that one as half completed. LOL I read almost the same amount of books and manga this month. Most were new to me authors, and I found a few new favorite series. I especially loved the books that I read by Kathryn Moon, Dana, Isaly, Sophie Lark, Kristy Cunning, C.M. Nascosta, and Claire Kent. I also varied the genres up a bit but I'm still mostly in a paranormal / monster smut mood. Check out how I did below. I've split my reads up by Books and Manga.

So that's my reading wrap up for the month of October 2021. I really enjoyed just about every single one of these titles. The only disappointment was the Love Massage manga series, I probably will not continue on with that one. While the art was well done, the story was not and it was confusing and felt convoluted at times. My favorite book reads of the month are A Lady of Rooksgrave Manor, There Are No Saints, Stalked By The Kraken, Games We Play, The Mabon Feast, and the Dark Side series. What books and or manga have you read this month? Do you have any favorites to recommend? Let me know by leaving a comment below. Have a great day and happy reading!
