Covid killed my week 2, and week 3 was mostly TV as opposed to books since I was recovering. Thankfully, I'm feeling much better now!

My total is 3,815 points.

Breakdown:
8 TV episodes/movies: 40
1 team genre book: 15
Word search: 3,760

Excellent urban fantasy. I loved the main character and thought the supporting cast was nicely fleshed out too.

I successfully baked small-batch pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, so that's one thing I can cross off my October bucket list.

From Vol 2 of Exorsisters, a cartoonishly fun comic series about demons and the apocalypse. And my first completed read for Scarathlon!

The Charm Collector is quickly becoming my favorite new urban fantasy series. I loved how this installment had dual POVs from both Harlow and Kayda. Can't wait for book 3 to come out.

I read the first book in this series way back last year, and it was great to see these characters again. Kate is such a hot mess and so fun to read about.

A vampire who hates blood and survives on vegetable juice and protein shakes. 😂 And she's on a mission to take down the vampire who turned her. Fun read so far.

After trying several ebooks and quitting in the first chapter because they weren't for me, I finally found one that grabbed me. 🙂

Love it when a sequel is just as good as the first book. An excellent urban fantasy that was hard to put down.
