November Monthly Wrap Up

November was pretty awesome! I traveled a little for Thanksgiving (not as much as I would have liked but *shrugs* oh well.) I participated in NaNoWriMo, read great books, and did some fun things.

This was enjoyable. I would give it a solid 3.5. I’m not sure if this is starting another Saw franchise but it definitely seemed like the start of something.


I saw Coco!! It was so sweet. A really lovely animated movie. If you are looking for something to spend your money on, this is what it should be.



Boyfriend and I started watching Vikings. I am addicted. Such strong characters–especially the women– and plot lines. Everyone has to make hard decisions and all you do is watch them, on the edge of your seat, biting your nails.


We also started and finished Mindhunter. Very addictive even though you could tell that it is mostly setting up for a real intense second season. I am so excited!

The post I did, Top Ten Books I’m Thankful For, got the most love this month. I’m pretty proud of it even though it has only seven books actually.

Bleed, Blister, Puke, and Purge: The Dirty Secrets Behind Early American Medicine by J. Marin Younker–A DNF because the library needed it back.

Meddling Kids by Edward Cantero–Another DNF because it just wasn’t for me.

The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo– my review  was a 5/5.

You Don’t Know My Name by Kristin Orlando– my review.

Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody– technically I finished it on November 2nd but I only had thirty pages left and got busy. Review to come!

  1. Try to get on an even more regular schedule, writing my posts before and posting it so it gets up in a good time.
