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:

*! Phoebe & Her Unicorn, Vol 6

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.
Dragons of Nova (Loom Saga, #2)
I Felt Their Teeth in My Bones

Thank you so much, Theo! ❤ I’m sorry you’ve been in a slump. I hope you’re able to get out of it soon. ❤
what a moooooonth!!!! you queen. happy belated birthday i’m furious i missed it
Thank you my dear! ❤❤
What an awesome haul and Women In Sports sound amazing. I love reading sporty books so this one is definitely one I’m planning on picking up 😀
Oh, yes, then I HIGHLY recommend it for you! ❤ I hope you enjoy it if/when you pick it up!
Cant wait to see what you think of sleeping beauties! I’m a little bit in and I like it but man some of the characters suck (like they’re written really well but are sucky humans and I need them to be killed already). Awesome Haul and happy late Birthday <3
Thank you so much! And I will definitely be posting my thoughts on that one when I get to it (hopefully sooner rather than later!).
[…] Destiny, for having amazing hair – even though I always hated pink, I’m starting to hate it less lately, haha – and posts and taste in books! And also for having the most impossible TBR ever! Lu, for having amazingly fun and honest posts, for having pretty images which makes reading so much more fun. And because she keeps saying sorry for replying late even though she should know that I really don’t care! Last but not least, Mikaela! For having the best discussion posts ever. I love reading them and I lovelovelove commenting on them with way too much words. Like, literally, the longest comments ever! […]
Happy belated name day!
