The Best and Worst of October 2015

October has been a bit of a rough month.  Posting has been sparse but I’m hoping to get back on track sometime in mid-November or December at the very latest.  Because my posting has been erratic, my total pageviews this October was 4,902 with 3,646 of those being unique views.  I’m still getting a lot of search engine traffic but I’m definitely wanting more of my regular readers back when I finally give you guys some new content to read.

So what were the best posts this month?

1.  The Day an Author Suggested I Kill Myself

2.  How to Read 100 Pages in an Hour

3.  Why Girls Hate Game of Thrones—A Rebuttal

4.  The Hunger Games and Ancient Rome

5.  The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton

My badly behaving author post has once again gone to the top of the most popular list.  For whatever reason, it seems to have gained traction on some Facebook group or something similar because I received a lot of referrals from Facebook.  This happens on occasion as someone new discovers the bad behaviour of said author so it’s not that surprising.  It’s just odd that there were so many views from this particular rediscovery.  As usual, the other four on the list are pretty predictable.

Then what were the worst posts this month?

1.  Early Poll Results and Future Changes

2.  Books that Should be Made into Movies (Part One)

3.  The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke

4.  Discussion: Your Christmas/Holiday Plans

5.  The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong

Some of these are quite a bit dated, like my discussion post and the poll result post but it’s kind of surprising to see a book by Kelley Armstrong here on the list as she is quite popular.  Although to be fair, this is one of her older books.  The same goes for The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke.  That one’s a classic for me but it is old so I can see why the review isn’t that popular.  As usual, none of these posts will remain on the list next month.

Well, that was my October.  How was yours?
