So this is really late. I can’t believe how fast the time has gone and how far behind I am. I’m going to try and catch up on the weekend with some reviews. I have been working on a class and it for some reason only releases new work on Wednesdays and Fridays. That has been killing my weekends when I normally blog. You would think I would just take advantage of the first few days of the week. I’ve gotten a bit out of routine on the lessons too with just life going on, so I am working getting back into a schedule. I have a LOT of audiobooks to review and I need to get them done so they will show up on my challenge. October just killed me.

I spent a little this month. It was on a book that I think I already hauled as an ebook, but I had to have the physical for my shelf. So far, my balance has stayed pretty good and I’ve used up about half of it. However, I do think I should have left at least one convention in. I’m thinking of one out of town con for next year but have to convince some travel buddies. I will definitely be planning for it in next year’s budget.

Book haul for October:

The kindle versions of Bodyguard and Midnight Untamed are $2.99 as of this writing. You should grab them. I’m really enjoying the Shifters Unbound series. I’ve always loved the Midnight Breed series so Midnight Untamed is a given for me!

Did everyone have a great Halloween? I am so bad with holidays of any sort. I’ve become sort of a grinch. Thanksgiving is coming up and all the posts of thankfulness have been in my social media feeds. It has come up so fast that I haven’t even had time to think about it. I have started grabbing a few things for Christmas, but they seem to be all for me! Well, some of them at least. Every time a package comes I just tell my husband “it’s a Christmas gift” and then hide it in the closet. He doesn’t need to know that I open it and wear it the next day!

Are you getting ready for the holidays? What kinds of exciting things are you looking forward to?
