October 2016 Wrap Up

I am in love with this video for several reasons. The first is that October was a seriously weird reading month, so the books I read are all over the place and only like one of them was good.

Then there is the fact that I begin to slowly lose my mind as the video goes along. Anyways. Uh. Enjoy?
