I had another exhausting Halloween of scaring kids and then organizing a local dance, but overall I’d say October was pretty good. The good weather is holding here in my corner of Saskatchewan and although work is getting slower, the construction industry never stops around here. Add to the fact that The Walking Dead is back on and you’ve got the recipe for a pretty decent month in my life.
It was so good that I re-opened my review requests and have been getting some awesome submissions. It also didn’t hurt my stats as I received 7,317 views including 4,778 unique views. That’s pretty good considering September was awful, with 4,861 total views.
So what were the most popular posts this month?
The only new one on this list is my 3 star review of Best Seller by Martha Reynolds. It’s nice to not only get extra views from a blog tour, it’s also nice to know that some authors actually care about their reviews and promote the heck out of them. Even if they’re generally positive but not the most flattering ever. I can definitely appreciate that. None of the other top posts in October were a shocker, but it’s nice to see a new post reach the top 5.
So what were my worst posts this month?
As with my past bottom 5 lists, none of these are really a surprise and I don’t think many of them have made repeated appearances on the list. Pretties by Scott Westerfeld has appeared before and that’s a shame because it’s a very good book. However, the others haven’t been on before and they are older/less popular books in general so it’s not all that surprising.
So overall, my October was pretty good. How was yours?
