October Wrap Up

I'm a bit late this month with my posts but I've finally had a moment to have a look at what I did last month. It was quite a busy month personally, so I didn't have that much time to read. I read 3 physical books and 4 ebooks, so quite a low total:

What I read:

5 stars:
The Deviants by C.J. Skuse
Comfort and Joy by Cathy Bramley 
The Silence between Breaths by Cath Staincliffe 
4 stars:
Searching for a Silver Lining by Miranda Dickinson
Miracle on 5th Avenue by Sarah Morgan
3 stars:
Something in Between by Melissa de la Cruz

We Were on a Break by Lindsey Kelk

What I was up to:

At the beginning of October, Husband had a two-week vacation so we decided to drive to the north of Italy. Our first stop was Venice, which was fantastic. This is such a magical place, it looks like it belongs to a movie set! We were really lucky with the weather and could sit on terraces to just enjoy people watching. Next, we went to Verona, which has a really well preserved medieval old town and you can visit the home of the Capulletos!

After Verona, the plan was to visit Milan but I got a call from the job interview I had done just before leaving and they offered me the job! So we had to cut the trip short and go back to Munich. So for the last three weeks, I've been working as a Catalan translator and project manager and enjoying every minute. 

October 25th was my birthday! Husband was on a business trip though... but my new colleagues took me out for a few beers. When he came back, we celebrated with friends. I was really happy with my presents, which obviously included books and other fantastic bits. 

What I blogged about:
