What I Read in October

This post is a bit late because NaNoWriMo started and the US is absolute chaos right now and I just couldn’t find the motivation to get this out at the start of the month. Hopefully it isn’t too late when I finally post this.

October wasn’t an ordinary month for me reading-wise. I felt like I hadn’t read much when I checked on Goodreads. Then I remembered fanfiction. I read a long fanfiction this month. I wondered how long so I checked. The fanfic was just shy of 1,100,000 words and I read it all in October. Now I understand why I didn’t find the time to read more original fiction.

Books I finished reading in October:


Books I’m currently reading:


I don’t know why I will have the opportunity to finish reading The Priory of the Orange Tree. The wait list at my library is quite long and there’s only one copy of the ebook available. I read more than half the book so far but then my borrow period was up and I’m at the back of the line again. I am determined to finish it, but it will require patience.

What books did you read in October? Have you ever expending most of your reading time/energy on a very long fanfic?
