The FraterfestRAT wrapped up at midnight and I managed to read/listen to 10 books. I hope a fun time was had by all. I reached my Goodreads challenge goal of 200/200 and I surpassed my Audiobook Challenge goal of 119/110. We dropped off our ballots this week, and they were accepted. Snow is in the forecast for today and tomorrow. Yikes. Be kind, stay safe and Stay Caffeinated.

Dang, Kimba! Is this the earliest in the year that you’ve met your goals? You’re crushing it. I’m super behind on everything–as you can tell by me commenting on a Sunday post on a Wednesday.
Nicci @ Sunny Buzzy Books
Snow! Oh, how I’d love some snow… We haven’t had any since Feb 2019! *cries*
I finished Fraterfest with only two books but I’m happy. 🙂 My reading challenges are pretty unsalvagable at this point, I think, but that’s okay… This year, it is what it is. Congrats on finishing yours!
Good job on meeting your Fraterfest and Goodreads goals!
I managed to fail upwards in my GR challenge, I was planning to read a bit less and focus on other hobbies this year, but instead, I kept having to up my target to keep up with my reading.
Oh some intriguing books there! Happy reading!
S. J. Pajonas
Wow! Great job on the reading/listening goals! That’s fantastic!
so cool on your challenges!! i am not sure where i am on any of the challenges i started this year (stopped tracking but am sure i must be almost done..)
and we are dropping off our ballots tomorrow
Great job with the 10 books! I loved The Christmas Table. It’s a tad overly sweet but it was just what I wanted right then! Have a great week!
Aj @ Read All The Things!
Congrats on reading 10 books! I started 4 for Fraterfest, but I only finished 1. It’s been snowing here all day. I guess winter has arrived. I hope you have a great week!
You did great for Fraterfest. I finished 6 books. I want to check out your post links to Christmas books and horror books. I saw Greenlights this week and it looks interesting.
We were cold in Denver and Boulder last weekend but I sure am glad it didn’t snow.
Continue to stay safe and Happy Reading!
I have to keep reminding myself that Halloween hasn’t come yet and we are still in October but winter has arrived early.
Lark @ The Bookwyrm's Hoard
Stay safe and warm, and enjoy the snow! Great job on your Fraterfest reading, and on casting your ballots. I hope you and your family have a wonderful week, and a fun (and socially distanced) Halloween!
Mareli @ Elza Reads
Hi Kimberley! Aaah you did well with Fraterfest! I didn’t manage as much as I hoped. But will try again! I see you have a Christmas Readathon coming up, but the dates are going to be a bit hectic for me. Will have to look for one in December!
Once again, thanks for hosting the Fraterfest! I had a lot of fun.
Hope you will have a wonderful week.
Jillian @ PidginPea's Book Nook
Wow congrats on meeting your reading goals! I thought I set myself a reasonable goal this year but I’m way behind. Ah well, I’m being forgiving to myself since 2020 has been a bit of a mess. >.<
Jen at Introverted Reader
Congratulations on meeting or exceeding your goals! It’s hard to even think about Christmas books right now, but it is getting to be that season, isn’t it?
Enjoy your week!
Laura @ Library of Clean Reads
Congrats on meeting your goals! I see you read The Midnight Library. I’m off to read your review. I reserved it at my library and I can’t wait to dig in.
I had six planned but managed only two. Ah yes, snow. Not in sight yet but maybe when Christmas is over *smile* Happy reading and stay safe and well.
Glad to see you had such a productive listening week. I’ve had my eye on When No One is Watching, so I’ll have to take a peek at your review!
Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction
Yay for meeting your Goodreads goal! You’ve been doing lots of great reading!!
Congrats on meeting your Goodreads goal. I sent in my ballot a couple of weeks ago.
Lover of Romance
Good for you dropping off your ballots…I am doing mine this week. We are getting snowflakes this morning and I am not happy. I want fall to last a bit longer. It never lasts long enough. LOL Hope you are well and thriving despite everything.
Anne - Books of My Heart
What a productive week and really a productive year reaching those goals! I hope you stay warm and safe if it snows. It has already snowed, a lot, where I used to live in Minnesota.
A Voracious Reader
Congrats on reaching your goals!! I lowered my number to 100 and I’m almost there. That is unheard of for me. I hate 2020 in so many ways. Snow?! Yikes! We’re getting rain today, but it’s not even close to freezing for which I am thankful. I hope you have a great snow-free week, Kim!
Congrats on reaching your Goodreads and audiobook challenge goals! I passed my Goodreads one a while ago. Nice haul you got this week. I am curious about Cemetery Boys, it sounds good. I hope you’ll have a great week!
Jan @ Notes from a Readerholic
Congratulations on meeting your reading goals, Kimberly! Snow is forecast for us today, too. A nice day to stay inside and read!
I hope you have a good week!
Well Kimberly you killed these goals! Congrats! And I am crossing my fingers for my US friends and the incoming elections.
Snow!? Yikes! Although, there may be snow forecasted here too that I’ve just ignored/blocked out. Have a great week and stay safe!
Shelleyrae @ Book’d Out
Congrats on your Fraterfest and Goodreads achievements!
Wishing you a great reading week, stay warm!
Jessica @ a GREAT read
Yay for completing your challenges!! Glad it was a good week for you.
Nice new reads too! I am soo behind on my JLA books! I need to start this series of hers still! Happy Reading!
Here’s my StS
Have a GREAT day!

We are having some gloomy weather here this weekend! Very atmospheric I guess. Lol.
We voted too! I need to figure out how to check my ballot.
The weather is cooler here too. I can’t wait for the actual winter, even though we will never be getting a snow. Woohoo on getting your goals met!
I wish I had snow!! But, there were 2 days last week it was almost 80! I took my students outside!
No snow here yet. The temps have dropped to the 50s a.s after being in the 80s earlier this week. I’m curious about Greenlights. Happy reading!
Woohoo for hitting Fraterfest and Goodreads goals! I met my Fraterfest goal and am really close on my GR one. Glad you got your vote in. We’re going on voting day. Brr, to snow, but we’re cold enough for it so I wouldn’t be surprised.
I almost snagged that Matthew Mc memoir, but too swamped for more right now. I’ll look forward to your thoughts.
Have a good week, Kimberly!
Tressa @ Wishful Endings
We’ve still need to mail in or drop off our ballets. We’re running out of time. We have a drop in temps this week down about 30 degrees, which is crazy, but it’s been very unseasonably warm, so I’m looking forward to the low 70s to 80s. I hope this week goes well for you!
Hi Kim, it’s been a very long time since I’ve been here for the last time. I used to be “The e-reader junkie”, my former blog that I deleted, but now that I’ve opened up another that I managed to keep for several months, I’m back 🙂 I see there are still some familiar names that I’m happy to see, but also new ones that I’ll be glad to discover. You did a really good job with your goals, I’m impressed ! Enjoy the snow and you and your family stay safe – the situation’s not great here in France either :-*
Tanya @ Girl Plus Books
Wow, you really killed your Goodreads and audiobook challenges! Meeting those goals in October is pretty impressive. Hard to imagine it snowing there when it’s 80 degrees here! LOL
Snow, oh no! We are starting to get it on the mountain peaks where it can stay!
Have a great week!
Wow congrats on reaching you book and audiobook goals, that’s amazing!! There’s nothing quite like that feeling of accomplishment of reaching goals you’ve set for yourself IMO.
Cemetery boys is a book I’ve heard quite a bit of hype about on the book community and something I’d like to get my hands on, hope you enjoy it.
Have a lovely week, Stay Safe x
Congratulations are reaching your reading goal and smashing your audiobook goal, Kimberly! If you get snowed in you’ll have even more time for reading! Take care and happy reading! ??⛄
Curious about Greenlights. Happy reading and stay warm and cozy.
Linda @ (un)Conventional Bookworms
YAY for reaching your goals! Way to go, Kimberly 🙂
Yikes for snow already, though. We have actually had a few nice fall days and it’s so nice to see the sun after all the rain and fog we’ve had.
Have a wonderful week ahead – stay safe and healthy. *hugs*
Maureen @ Maureen’s Books
OMG.. 200 books? That’s amazing Kimberly!
And I see you got the new Jennifer Armentrout book. I can’t wait to read what you think. It’s another great one ?
Stay safe and happy reading.
Wow you got a lot of reading done! I’m looking forward to the Black Friday Giveaway Hop! Snow already?! Stay warm, Kimberly! 🙂
Yvonne @ Socrates Book Reviews
Congrats on your reading. You did really well. Hope you have a great week!
You have a great looking week ahead, and congrats on finishing your challenges. Enjoy your reading.
10 books is awesome! Glad it went well. 🙂
We’ve had some of the white stuff here too in northern parts of the state. Ack!!!
Take care and be well. Looking forward to the HoHoho!!
