Reading Wrap Up: October

October was an okay reading month for me. I was very into personal finance books, and I read both The Recovering Spender and Debt Free Forever and thought they were both good. I do enjoy Gail Vaz Oxlade, she's very in your face and knowledgeable.  I find alot of these books start to sound repetitive, I'm not sure if I'll be picking any personal finance books up in November. I've been itching to get back into reading and I think the warmer weather will really help. 

Books Read

November I'm hoping to have some book reviews, some personal finance posts and more lifestyle/parenting posts. The personal finance posts have  alot of traffic, so I know people are enjoying them and hopefully are motivated by these posts. I've never been in a bad financial state but I think it's great to learn how to be better about finances. It's something that really interests me. 

My favorite book read in October was Wenjack. I think it's a powerful read, and I encourage everyone to pick this novella up.

I'm currently reading another Joseph Boyden book:

Before internationally acclaimed author Joseph Boyden penned his bestselling novel Three Day Road and his Scotiabank Giller Prize–winning novel, Through Black Spruce, he published a powerful collection of thirteen stories about modern Aboriginal life that made readers and reviewers take notice. These stories of love, loss, rage and resilience match virtuosic style with clever wit to turn stereotypes on their head and reveal the traditions and grace of our First Peoples. Readers come to know a butterfly-costumed boy fascinated by the world of professional wrestling, a young woman who falls in love with a wolf, to the leader of an all-girl Native punk band and Painted Tongue, the unforgettable character from Through Black Spruce.Though each story is told in a different and distinct voice, they are all united by their captivating vitality, nuanced perceptions and vigorous prose.
