  1. I haven't got around to reading Raina Telgemeier before, but I found Drama by her at the second hand store yesterday, so finally going to check her out!

    1. Kailana ... Yay! I actually have not yet read Drama, but I hope to soon. Right now, Ghosts is probably my favorite by her.

  2. Nice number! I didn't quite make it that high.

    1. Jenny ... Thank you! This is actually one of my slowest years of reading since I've been keeping track. But, honestly, with all the other stuff going on this last year, I will take it happily!

  3. I love this break down by month! Great idea! October was a good month for you!

    1. Kami ... It really was! I'm thanking the readathon for that one!!
