For the last few months, I have been diligently using my bullet journal. I've been tracking my books and fitness goals surprisingly well. Since I have reached and surpassed by initial goal of 150 books this year, I increased it to 200. I've also reached and surpassed that as well. Last year, I read a total of 280 books. I tried to make it to 300 but I got lazy towards the end of the year.
I read a total of 37 books in October.

As you can tell, I went through most of Lucy Lennox's books; re-read a few of my favourites (Melina Marchetta's books, The Hating Game by Sally Thorne, and Lover Awakened by JR Ward.), then read a couple of non fiction.
But my favourite read of the month is Samantha Power's memoir about her tenure in the Obama administration as a foreign policy advisor and a UN Ambassador. It was quite a delightful read. If you're ever interested in knowing the background as to why the Americans like to get involved in other countries' wars, this is a good insight.
So for November, my main focus is to finish a few books that I've started but have yet to finish. As well, a monster of a book that's been sitting on my shelves since probably early Summer:
