Welcome to my first monthly wrap-up post. November was a busy month for me, and I’m definitely glad it’s over. I am a HUGE fan of the Christmas season (it’s my favourite holiday by far), and November is always a struggle for me because it’s so close to the Christmas season, but you’re just not quite there yet. But with the Christmas season now well and truly underway, it’s time to reflect on the month gone by.
In November, I handed in my last piece of undergraduate assessment ever! This was both an absolutely exhilarating moment because I was finally finished, but also a bittersweet one, because what the hell do I do now? The answer, of course, was read.
I read five books in November, which I’m incredibly proud of because I haven’t read that many books in a month in what feels like forever. I started the month with the book in the October YA Chronicles subscription box: Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake. This book was super easy to read, and while I did predict the ending’s twist, I still really enjoyed it and am looking forward to reading the rest of the series. This was probably my favourite book for the month as well. I also read Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder, Seconds by Bryan Lee O’Malley, Afterworlds by Scott Westerfield and Fables Vol. 3 by Bill Willingham.
Other than catching up on some much-needed reading time and stressing over my final assessment piece, I spent November making changes to this website.
See you in December!
