Life Diaries and Reading Wrap Up – October 2020

October has been such an amazing month. I read a lot and I even went out and I met with some family and friends and we celebrated Durga Puja and Halloween with a closed group, lockdown style. In a nutshell it was as good as it could get🙂

Books I read ☺️📚

I read the below books as part of the Scaredycatreadathon reading challenge:

  • The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman and illustrated by Chris Ridell. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
  • Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
  • The Dragon Republic by R F Kuang ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Besides these, I read the below books as part of book club picks or recommendations from friends ☺️

  • Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosch ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
  • A curse so dark and lonely by Brigid Kimmerer ⭐️⭐️⭐️
  • These, Our bodies possessed by light by Dharini Bhaskar ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Life and fitness updates

  • I didn’t run at all in the month of October because it was too hot and I was starting to get headaches after my runs. So I decided to give that a break. Instead I went on a lot of walks in the park with my family and did a lot of Zumba at home🙂
  • We couldn’t celebrate Durga Puja at all this time and it was quite depressing because that’s a big festival for us. However we did meet with a few close family members and we did eat a lot of delicious food 😉😁
  • We celebrated Halloween as well. Well basically my daughter celebrated Halloween by dressing up as her favourite witch character and celebrating it as part of her online class celebrations 🧙‍♀️
  • These adorable chicks gave us a short visit on one of the days and it was the best Saturday morning ever!💖
  • And finally we also went on this really amazing trip to Deras Dam and went on a short forest ride through the Chandaka forest reserve in Bhubaneswar. It was so beautiful, peaceful and green and was such a balm for the soul and the eyes during these difficult times 🙂

So that was a shortish wrap up of my October ☺️

How was your October? Did you read some really spooky books? 🧟‍♀️

Did you go out or stay indoors?

Did you work out or reach any of your goals?

I’m still trying to figure out my plans for November and I did want to participate in the Nanowrimo this year but I have an injury and I am not sure how I’m going to be writing so let’s see how that works out 🤷‍♀️🙃
