Hello, my friends, it’s been sooo long! If you didn’t notice, I took the month of November off from the blog but now I have returned and I am feeling pretty good. I also ended up taking a couple of weeks away from both IG and Twitter. It wasn’t planned, but just taking a break from all the pressure to be productive was very much needed. I don’t have a lot of plans in terms of the blog for this last month of the year because I didn’t want to spend my break from the blog thinking about the blog, but I do have several reviews in the drafts that need to go up. Looking forward to reconnecting with all of you <3<3<3
I just went to look at what I had read this month and apparently I didn’t. I read two full books and only got through a third of another. This is actually really funny because I could have sworn I read more. Oh well. Something amazing that did happen was I reached 100% ratio on NetGalley. This has only happened a couple of times since I started blogging. It feels so good and so earned. It might be disappearing sooner rather than later as I have requested a few 2021 ARCs.

Favorite Book This Month:
I am currently recovering from reading The Burning God by R.F. Kuang, the final book in The Poppy War trilogy. I didn’t finish it, it finished me. I need to sit down and write a review, but I am experiencing a book hangover that somehow is worse than the ones the first two books put me through.
Least Favorite Book This Month:
No book received lower than three stars from me.

What I Watched/Am Watching:
Chocolate – I would like to take a moment and thank the creators of this K-Drama. It single-handedly got me through election week when I needed to take a break from doomscolling and watching the news on T.V. The slow-burn was so deliciously slow but so worth it. If you like foodie dramas, childhood sweethearts, and a romance that makes your heart ache, be sure to check this one out. Keep a tissue box handy as this one takes place at a hospice and you will grow attached to characters you will have to say goodbye to.
