From November to December

Hi guys and happy December! I can’t believe there’s only just over 21 days until Christmas and 27 until 2017. That’s so crazy! Where did 2016 go? And this will most likely be my last wrap up of the year, because I might not get to this month’s until early January. I’ll be on winter break, though, so who knows?

Anyway, this will be a relatively long post, so get comfy and let’s get into it! (You can use this as an excuse to eat more chocolate!) πŸ˜›


reading wrap up

I only got through 6 books in November, but that’s better than none. πŸ˜‰

I had a pretty good month, and as you can see, there was a bit of a pattern. 4 of these 6 ended up on my favorites shelf, but if I had to pick it would be a tie between Frozen Tides and If I Should Die. ❀

So even though I didn’t read a ton, these books and the first book of this month’s wrap up (The Valiant by Lesley Livingston) have put me at a total of 100 books read. And that means I’ve finished my Goodreads goal for the year!Β XD

blogging wrap up

I’m happy to say I posted 6 things that weren’t reviews lastΒ month, and I cut down the repetition too. 6 was apparentlyΒ my lucky number. πŸ™‚

I had some sort of random creative streak throughout November, and hopefully that can make up for my sporadic posting. Although that might end up carrying over to this month, because finals are in a couple of weeks.

this month's haul

I don’t think I got any books in November. I wasn’t able to get the Owlcrate last month, and I’m pretty sure I didn’t buy any.

life update

*tries to think of interesting things that happened in my life in November* XD

Maybe it’s because it’s 10 pm, or maybe I just didn’t do anything this month… but I’m drawing a blank. Let’s move on. πŸ˜›

next month's TBR

I have an ambitious TBR this month, but I think my winter break will help me get through it. I’m hoping to read a total of 9 books. πŸ™‚

  • The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi
  • A Whole New World by Liz Braswell
  • A Thousand Nights by E.K. Johnston
  • The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury
  • Blackhearts by Nicole Castroman
  • The Girl From Everywhere by Heidi Heilig
  • Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton
  • None of the Above by I.W. Gregorio
  • The Winner’s Kiss by Marie Rutkoski

I got all of these but TWK at the library today, and I’m hoping to borrow it from my library’s e-book catalog later this month. And if I can read all of these, then December will be the month of catching up with hyped books. I also noticed that my TBR is full of retellings and/or books set in the Middle East, with a side of pirates and a lone contemporary. πŸ˜›

And that wraps up this wrap up! (Excuse my bad pun.)


How many books did you read in November? How many did you buy? Did anything interesting happen? What do you hope to read this month? Any releases you’re anticipating in December? I’d love to know! Tell me in the comments! πŸ™‚

I’m off to be lazy, maybe start a book, and then go to sleep. I have a very interesting daily life. XD I hope you all have a fabulous day/night! ❀

Until next time…

  1. I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend None of the Above! I read it a year ago and I haven’t seen it anywhere on bookstagram or the blogging world! I’m seriously so happy someone else is finally reading it- it’s so eye-opening. It’s sad, but the sort of sad that makes you want to go out in the world and do something to help people like that!

  2. Snap! I read six books this month too. I totally had wanted to read something more like 15 but psssh, I don’t think I’ve ever read that much in a month – maybe I should make more realistic goals. I’ve been meaning to finish off Amy Plum’s Die for Me series for SO LONG. I just have to read If I Should Die but I’ve been putting it off forever because I just don’t want the series to end! T.T

    1. Haha, I think every bookworm dreams of reading 15 books a month! If I remember correctly I read 14 in June, but since then I haven’t gotten close lol. πŸ˜… You definitely should read If I Should Die asap! It’s my favorite of the trilogy! I can totally get not wanting to end, but for me I was dying (excuse my pun haha) to know what happened next! Wasn’t the Until I Die cliffhanger just evil? ☺️
