This month was a little all over the place for me. Lots of health stuff being dealt with, as best I could, and then other things coming up for processing. Review books have taken a bit of a back seat while I deal with stuff, and I am just trying to catch up a little now.

Stand outs for this month include: Turtles All the Way Down which just blew me away and I related to it so much - dealing with mental health issues can be so complex and frustrating at times; The Land of Neverendings was pretty amazing, giving some moments of laughter and others of a little weeping; and The Abundance of Less which picked my brain up, shook it, and made me look at things completely differently, whilst also reminding me of what is really important to me.

Whilst I read a little less this month, I'm still pretty happy with the overall spread of what I read - but a little more nonfiction and maybe some literary fiction in November wouldn't go astray.

Happy reading!
