Full Length Books: The Address by Fiona Davis Horrorstör by Grady Hendrix On a Cold Dark Sea by Elizabeth Blackwell My Best Friend's Exorcism by Grady Hendrix
These were all pretty good but I definitely enjoyed the Hendrix books the most. Lots of fun and perfect for Halloween season.
I also read the Forward Collection (Individual Short Stories): Ark - Veronica Roth Emergency Skin - N.K. Jemisin Randomize - Andy Weir Summer Frost - Blake Crouch (this was my favorite of the collection) The Last Conversation - Paul Tremblay You Have Arrived At Your Destination - Amor Towles
According to Goodreads I am 3 books ahead for my goal of 50 books.
Force of Nature by Jane Harper 4* Ayesha at Last by Uzma Jalaluddin 5* The Lost City of Z by David Grann 3* The Gifted School by Bruce Holsinger 4* Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout 5* The Huntress by Kate Quinn 2* When You Read This by Mary Adkins 4* Amy and Isabelle by Elizabeth Strout 4* Stay with Me by Ayobami Adebayo 5*
I'd recommend Ayesha at Last, The Gifted School, Olive Kitteridge, When You Read This, and Stay with Me.
I'm at 64/60. My newish goal is 75 but I'm not putting any pressure on myself.
Love, Hate, and Other Filters by Samira Ahmed 3* Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins 3* Frankly in Love by David Yoon 4* Royal Holiday by Jasmine Guillory 3* Twice in a Blue Moon by Christina Lauren 3* (probably the worst Christina Lauren I've read) Love, Rosie by Cecelia Ahern 2* Beauy and the Mustache by Penny Reid 4*

I've been kinda MIA over here- my co-worker quit and it's easier for me to post from the desktop computer at work. But as of last week (3 months later!) they have hired her replacement so I will no longer be doing 2 jobs at once and can take breaks again. Yay!
I read a lot of really good books this month and learned about a few new subjects (x-post from ML). As of today 11/5 I am 191 for the year.
