I’m officially back from hiatus! I will be catching up on comments both today and tomorrow, particularly ones left on my Top Ten Tuesday post I put up this last week. If I have time today, I will also be doing a little blog hopping. I missed my blog, but I also missed all of yours as well.
I cannot believe that it is already December. Where did 2018 go? My November was defined by the most part by the aforementioned hiatus I took in the middle of the month. I didn’t work on my blog for a whole two and a half weeks. I wish I could say I picked up an absurd number of books while away from the blog, but it was more of the same. I read 6 novels in November, only bought a couple of books for myself (here’s to self-control!), and feel really confident going into December. There are a few books I really want to get to as we say goodbye to 2018 and a couple of blog posts I’ve been thinking about that I at least want to start on. We’ll see how it goes.
(Book covers below are linked to my reviews, unless otherwise specified.)
Favorite Book This Month:
Rebecca Roanhouse’s Trail of Lightning is the book I’m going to be screaming about for the rest of the year into next year. I kid you not, the day after I finished my library copy, I was on the hunt for my own copy. It was that good. The world-building was top-notch, the characters hard not to root for, and the action took my breath away. I cannot wait to share my review with you. Cover is linked to Goodreads.
Least Favorite Book This Month:
No book received less than three stars from me this month.

Notable Blog Posts This Month:
Can’t-Wait Wednesday: Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi – I am already salivating over this release. Chokshi is one of my favorite writers and you can bet that this is at the top of my preorder list (I preordered this while on hiatus).
Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Sibling Relationships – I “broke” my hiatus so I could do this topic because I love sibling relationships in books and had to share this list with everyone.
Aside from the Goodreads challenge, I’m only participating in one reading challenge this year. I close the second to last month accepting that I am not going to meet my goal. I’m okay with that.
1. The 2018 Debut Author Challenge is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. I read one debut in November and that was Love, Hate & Other Filters by Samira Ahmed.
- Challenge Goal: 12 books; Current Count: 9 books
I have no December releases on my TBR, so instead here are a few books I’m hoping to pick up before the end of 2018:
Do you take a break from your blog during the busy holiday season? How was your November? Did you have an enjoyable Thanksgiving? Any books you need to get to before we end 2018? Let me know in the comments and feel free to leave me a link to your own wrap-up post and I’ll be sure to visit.
