Non-bookish Post #10: New, new, new!

Wow, how is it already November? I felt like these last few weeks have gone by so so so quickly–almost like I don’t have a moment to stop and breathe.

Hooray! I rated these book 4+ stars on Goodreads if that helps you at all about whether you should read the below books… 😀

(I ended up splitting this into two posts because man, I rated a fair amount of books at 4 or more stars. Haha.)
