My October Reading Map

It time to update my Reading Map! This is like a road map of my reading journey. Each month I do a ‘check-up’ to help me see what I’ve accomplished towards my reading goals and to help me see what needs to be done next. Here is my September Reading Map!

I never seem to accomplish as much as I hope to. There are so many good books I want to read, I tend to over-schedule my reading. But I’m not too disappointed. I finished and reviewed 3 of the 7 books on my list, 1 is finished and the review will appear later this week, and I am in the middle of reading 2, so that leaves only one untouched! And I hope to get to it this month! Here are the details.

The Explanation For Everything by Lauren Grodstein (Library Thing Early Reviewer - review coming soon)
American Blonde by Jennifer Niven (Library Thing Early Reviewer - review coming soon)
A Matter of Mercy by Lynn Hugo (read and reviewed)
I Shall Be Near to You by Erin Lindsay McCabe (read and reviewed)

Unplanned Reading
Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult (ARC from friend - review coming soon)
The Silent Wife by by A.S.A. Harrison (read for book club - review coming soon)

Currently Reading
The Lost Tribe of Cony Island by Claire Prentice

Not read
The Girl Who Came Home by Hazel Gaynor
Sing in the Morning, Cry at Night by Barbara J. Taylor

My reading map for October appears below. I am starting with the books that are currently in progress, and adding the books with reviews due in October. And as usual, I am adding more books than I think I can finish this month. And since this is going to be another RED October, and I’m hoping I will be watching baseball deep into the month (GO CARDINALS!), there is a good chance I won’t finish anything that doesn’t have a review due this month. In that case, my November reading map is already planned out! These are not in any particular order.

September Reading Map

Certainty by Victor Bevine
The Moonlight Palace by Liz Rosenberg
Accidents of Marriage by Randy Susan Meyers
The Girl Who Came Home by Hazel Gaynor
The Lost Tribe of Cony Island by Claire Prentice
Lost and Found by Brooke Davis

Do you have a ‘map’. If so, share it below in the comments. Maybe I’ll see something I want to add to my list!

  1. I never have an official list of books I want to read in a month but I have an idea in my head and I rarely get through them all either. I've fallen really behind lately. I need to catch up, especially since October's books are mostly horror. I'll still read them if I don't get to them this month but it won't be the same.
