October 2019 Wrap Up/ posted in: Reading
I read 20 books and 3 short stories in October.
The books I read were:
- 2 nonfiction
- Way too many Duke-centric romances. I tend to prefer my historicals to be Duke-free but it is what it is
- 3 audiobooks
- Set in the U.S., England (and Wales), and Eritrea
What were my favorites?
Warriors Don’t Cry is an absolute must-read for everyone!

I’m aiming for 21-30 books to be at the tapir level. 17/21 so far. Only 2 months left. I need to get a move on.
- Read a nonfiction book about the country – or
- Read fiction written by a native of the country or someone living for a long time in the country.
I was super excited to add Eritrea this month.
The book is amazing and you should read it but I kept getting excited every time she mentioned Eritrea because I knew I would get to add this. That’s a hard one to get!
