September & October Challenges Wrap Up

I'll put up a wrap up post every month or early the next month for all of my 2013 reading challenges. Some books, I posted reviews on the blog, some are on goodreads, there may be one or two without reviews, especially books I edit or that are put out by my publisher.

September was a crazy busy month with the start of the new school year and I did very little reading that was non-work related. I was so tired, I forgot to do the wrap up post and when I remembered, I decided to just combine it with October. November's, however, will have to be its own solo post, as I have two additional challenges this month. :D Also, for October, November and December, I am participating in the Better Late Than Never ARC Challenge, which I'll track in my monthly wrap up posts.
