October was a great month! I got into the fall/Halloween spirit more than I ever have before which was great. Boyfriend and I carved pumpkins, went to Boo at the Zoo, and watched spooky movies and TV shows.
What I Watched
Happy Death Day
This was a pretty great movie. I really liked it and guessed the ending just from the previews. I don’t know if that says more about me, the previews, or the movie itself.
This movie was very interesting. Boyfriend gave it a thumbs down because he felt like nothing happened. It was definitely focused on the character’s emotional spiral but I still liked it.
I wrote a review of this movie here -> https://wordpress.com/view/theleafd.com. So definitely check out my thoughts!
The Good Doctor
This is such an amazing show. It makes me almost-cry every time I watch it. I feel for the characters, especially Dr. Murphy and Dr. Browne. They both want to heal people and they are so pure!
This is my favorite show. I haven’t fanned out over a show in a very long time but this show is so worth it. The story is engrossing and I could ramble on about it forever. I wrote a book recommendations post based on Stranger Things which you can find here-> https://theleafd.com/2017/10/28/book-recommendations-1-for-fans-of-stranger-things/
What I Listened To
This feature I’ve just decided to dedicate to boyfriend because happens to give the best music recommendations and I wouldn’t have a lot of my newer music without him. I am only going to put one, Lost On You by Lewis Capaldi, because if there’s one song you listen to, it should be this one.

What I Read
I’m getting to read more and more after college and I LOVE IT. I used to read a lot during high school and then I just got so worn from college that I had to get back into it slowly.

My Favorite Post This Month
I really loved my NaNoWriMo Post about writing. It was fun getting my story out into the world just a little bit.
Goals For Next Month
- My main goal is NaNoWriMo. I am going to really get some progress done on my story. It makes me feel so good to write my thoughts down of the story.
- Blogging on a regular schedule. I did pretty good in October with a little slack at the end because I was preparing my story.
- Get better at Instagramming. I see so many beautiful pictures of books and I want to have more and post more regularly.
- Find another beautiful-awesome TV show for when Stranger Things ends (sad). I don’t want to fall into sadness because I will miss them because they are my friends not really but I care about them.
Let’s chat! What are you guys watching, reading, or listening to? What are you doing in November? Talk to me and let me know!!!
