I’m so sad that October is over, but one good thing about the end of every month is writing up the end-of-month posts like this one! I have so much fun tallying up my stats and showing off my new goodies. I swore my haul this month would be nothing compared to last month’s, and while I stuck to my rule of buying almost nothing in October, I learned that I have some very amazing friends (and a wonderful fiance!) who gifted me so many incredible books for my birthday. I am so, so blessed, and my heart is so full, and I love all of you too much for words.
Moving on from my sappy self, I’ll start with my wrap-up, as usual:
* = graphic novel
! = ARC/sent for review
! The Innocence Treatment
* The Walking Dead, Vol 2
There’s Someone Inside Your House
Mary: The Summoning
! The Ravenous
*! Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys: The Big Lie #1
* Dean Koontz’s Frankenstein, Vol 1
* Fables, Vol 3
Sleepy Hollow and Other Short Stories
Average rating for the month: 3.7/5
Percentage of September TBR completed: 56% (ouch)
Onward, to the hauls!

eBook Haul (Purchased):
My eBook haul was also waaay more extensive than I intended for it to be, but HarperTeen randomly auto-approved me for a metric crapload of titles on Edelweiss this month, and who was I to say no? Anyways, because there were so many, I’m going to be compiling a separate blog post for my October eARC haul, which will go up later this week.
