It's been an age and a half since I've done a monthly review, but I'm going to get back into the habit if I have to glue myself to a chair at the end of every month.
After a dismal August and a non-existent September, Gabriel Reads is back up and blogging. With a backlog of reviews (some of which I still haven't written), I had no shortage of material this month. There are still 2 months left in the year and I've read 67 books out of my goal of 100. That means in November and December you should expect (and by "expect," I mean "demand) at least 33 more reviews.
So what did I do this month?
