October 2021 Wrap-up Post

I read 8 books this month! I am actually shocked by that number. I really thought that I had read only 4 books until I sat down and counted back. Here are my October reads:

Loud Black Girls by Yomi Adegoke and Elizabeth Uviebinene – 5*

Darkness Falls (Kate Marshall #3) by Robert Bryndza – 5*

Lost Angels (Nikki Hunt #3) by Stacy Green – 5*

The War Child by Renita D’ Silva – 5*

Good as Dead by Sue Walter – 4*

The Angel Creek Girls (Detective Kay Sharp by Leslie Wolfe – 4*

She Kills Me by Jennifer Wright – 3.5*

The Girl in the Stripped Dress by Ellie Midwood – 3.5*

November, 2021 TBR

I am still playing catch-up with my ARCs so I will be aiming to clear my backlog in November. Here are some of the new releases coming out in November that I also plan to read.

God of Mercy by Ozieke Nwoka

Carved in Ebony by Jasmine L. Holmes

A Little Bird by Wendy James

From my backlog, I hope to read the following titles:

Litani by Jess Lourey

Carefree Black Girls by Zeba Blay

The Last Time She Died (Blake and Bryon #1) by Zoe Sharp

Finding the Hero in Your Husband by Juli Slattery

Frozen Souls (Detective Ellie Reeves #4) by Rita Herron

First Girl to Die (Detective Morgan Brookes #4) by Helen Phifer

The Hidden Girl (Agent Tori Hunt #3) by Roger Stelljes

So, I have 10 books in my November TBR which is 2 more than I was able to read this month. If I manage to read all these, I will have made a huge dent on my TBR. Fingers crossed.

Have you read any of these titles? Are you up to date with your ARC reviews? Have you ever fallen behind this bad that you find yourself with ARCs that have already been published?

Have a lovely November.


  1. Good luck with your TBR for November! Looks like you’ve got some good-looking titles.

    I don’t do ARCs but I’m sure if I did, I would have books that were already long published before I got around to writing about them!

    1. hahaha you and I are sisters in that aspect. I always see you returning library books unread. I think that is my version of ARCs long published 😀

      Thanks Laila. Have a wonderful month.
