It IS a Happy Halloween
Children's Literacy Round-Up: November 2

Books Read in October

This is a list of the books that I read in October, broken up into Middle Grade Books, Young Adult Books, and Adult Fiction. Sadly, I did not read any picture books in October. I'll have to remedy this in the coming month - I've been on a bit of a young adult fiction binge lately. I'm also a bit behind on reviews of these titles, and hope to make some progress on review this weekend.
