*Platypire Read-A-Thon* October Results

So while I clearly got behind on my blogging again, October was a good month for me I think. I read books and even wrote and posted reviews for some of them! I've made some headway on getting caught up with my backlist reviews, although I still have a long ways to go. I *might* get fully caught up on writing reviews before the year is over though, if I continue at the rate I'm currently getting them written (I'm only posting one a day though because having some drafts handy for when I'm really busy with proofreading isn't a bad thing).

With that in mind, let's see how I did, shall we?

I managed to get 14 books reviewed, but only finished reading five books in October (although I had a few novella sized proofreads that I completed as well that are not listed here because I'm not currently sure how they are going to be published, but I believe it's as part of a few different anthologies). So while I didn't get much read in October, I did make some good progress on my blogging, so I still consider it a successful month overall. - Katie
