Monthly Wrap-Up: November ’17

MonthlyWrap-UPI’m back from my hiatus! I took a two and a half week break in November and so this monthly wrap-up will be a little small. Not going to lie, I also took a sleeping pill last night and I think I’m still half asleep. Excuse anything I write here that might sound like nonsense. I didn’t read very much this past month, only finishing four books (I know, can you believe it?). I bought far too many books over the last couple of weeks and am eagerly awaiting all my packages. My final book haul post is going to be huge. Also, I changed my profile pic just in case you think someone else has taken over my blog.

(Book covers below are linked to my reviews, unless otherwise specified.) 

Favorite Book This Month:

My favorite book in November was Anna-Marie McLemore’s Wild Beauty. I was so stoked for this book and it turned out to be more beautiful than I imagined. I did write a review for this one while I was away, but I need to transfer it, so look for a review this upcoming weekend. Cover is linked to Goodreads.

Least Favorite Book This Month:

I’m in the minority for this one. I really wanted to enjoy this Pride & Prejudice inspired contemporary, but Emma Mill’s First & Then did not do it for me. I will have a mini-review of this one on the blog soon.

Notable Blog Posts This Month:

FLYTIP: Font Fervor – Got fonts? I wish I had more experience with fonts. It’s something I’d like to be better at in the future.

Reading Challenges:

Whoops, I didn’t read very much toward my goals again this November. I only have one month to meet my Flights of Fantasy goal! Panicking a little.

  1. My Thanksgiving felt really fast because I haven’t had a break since the end of August. In college, that’s a long time with no break, especially since professors like me work nights, weekends, etc. I finally got to meet my baby nephew, Quirt. He smiles just like my dad. Last night I saw Coco and wondered if you’re going to see it. It was great! I love that they really researched the culture, the whole cast is Hispanic, and there is a lot of Spanish.

  2. It’s nice to have you back!

    I haven’t read Wild Beauty yet, but I really enjoyed her previous book, so I definitely need to read it at some point.

    Good luck with Flights of Fantasy. You can do it! 🎉 I think I’m on track for my reading goal, but it depends on how busy this month gets.

    Here’s my November recap. 😊

  3. Excellent wrap-up! I had a really lovely Thanksgiving. With divorced parents and then adding my fiance’s family into the mix, things can be incredible stressful trying to give each family the same amount of time… but this year we did it! Everything was more relaxed and fun than rushed too! It was so great!

  4. Wild Beauty looks gorgeous and every review I stumble upon only confirms that it’s just as beautiful inside! I’M GLAD. What a bummer it would have been if it were actually a dud lolol xD I’ve been eyeing First & Then for a long, long time now and I’m not honestly sure when I’ll ever get around to it. Pity it didn’t work out for you! Hopefully Love, Life and the List would live up to your expectations! Everyoe that’s read it so far seem to think the author’s “back” so it should be good!!
