Lots going on right now here: new school year (mostly remote learning), upcoming elections, continued pandemic, Halloween (which we can barely celebrate)… the list goes on. And it’s not much better in most of the rest of the world (though, be glad you don’t have to think about our elections). Good thing we still have our books to keep us sane! Thanks to everyone for sharing your discussions.
The winner of our August discussion challenge giveaway was Marie @ Drizzle & Hurricane Books. She got to pick a dystopian or book related to the pandemic in some way, shape or form, and she chose Cinderella Is Dead by Kaylinn Bayron. Nicole read it and really enjoyed it, so we hope you do too, Marie!

Featured Posts/New Rafflecopter Entries!
This year, we’re switching it up a bit! First, we’re adding a new entry to the Rafflecopter: Comment on either of our monthly link-up posts telling us about a discussion you’ve particularly enjoyed this month, and grab yourself some extra entries!
Our post of the month for October (as chosen by Random.org) is Veronika @ Wordy and Whimsical’s “Friendships in Books: The Good and the Bad.” Commenting on that post gives you FIVE extra entries in the giveaway (if you already commented, that counts too!).
Also remember that there’s a new entry to the Rafflecopter: Comment on either of our monthly link-up posts telling us about a discussion you’ve particularly enjoyed this month, and grab yourself some extra entries!
For the October giveaway, Nicole feels like we all need a little cheering, so I want you to pick a book that will make you happy. That could mean a funny book or a light and fluffy book, but if it would make you really happy to read Bram Stoker’s Dracula (it is also Halloween this month, after all), then you do you! 🙂
As always, the giveaway is open to anyone that The Book Depository ships to (or, if TBD doesn’t ship to you, you could choose an ebook!) up to a $17 value.
Make sure to link up all of your October discussion posts here. This linky and the October giveaway will be open until November 7th (to give people a little extra time to link up – just in case you’re disorganized like we are). If, by some chance, you forget to link up a post this month, you can add it to next month’s linky (but no duplicates, please).
Go forth and discuss!
