Booktober Reads and Reviews : Add a few to your holiday list!

Despite my hours spent in the car, having guests for half of the month decreased my audiobook time. I managed to make it through ten titles this month - a lot of fiction, including historical fiction, thrillers, and police procedurals.

I read a couple of books that were part of a series and one glorious work of nonfiction. In all, this month I read TWO five-star titles, and TWO 4.5s that just came up a tiny bit short of the five-star mark. If you are looking for some titles to add to your holiday wish list, look no further. This month I'll return to posting in order of stars because there were quite a few winners!
