October was not my month when it came to reading. I literally only got through two books. I spent the rest of the month insanely busy with work, school, and life - for reading, I started reading Stephen King's It, and it took me a while to get through it, so that's crawled into November. The two books I read in October were nothing special, and I may not even remember them a year from now. Unfortunate - but hopefully I'll be able to catch up and finish out my Popsugar Reading Challenge prompts in November and December. *fingers crossed*

Mikey and Me: Life with my Exceptional Sister by Teresa Sullivan*: This is a pretty heartbreaking memoir about how having a family member with a disability can effect the lives of every involved. Teresa's sister, Mikey, lived with several different disabilities in a time when those types of issues weren't fully understood. This memoir talks about the difficulties of balancing personal well-being and the well-being of those you love. (full review here) 3/5


Played! by Michael A. Kahn: Chosen as my book to fulfill the prompt "a book you bought on a trip," I was entertained by, if not fully entranced in, this crime thriller. Played! is the story of two brothers leading very different lives, until a crazy turn of events forces them to work together. Even though this was a bit juvenile for what expected, I have a good time reading this silly book. (full review here) 4/5
