November Wrap-Up!

november wrap up

One month closer to the holiday season…and to finals.

In My Life


School is…school. Yeah, nothing really good or bad happened. I had another Speech and Debate competition, which went well. I got a whole week off for Thanksgiving break, which was great. I definitely ate too much pie.

On a happy note, I got my drivers permit! Technically, I could have gotten it a year and a half ago, but I procrastinated. Anyway, I can now drive (and it’s a little terrifying).

On This Blog

This month was bad for my blog. 😦

I only had 13 posts, and I ended my record of having at least three posts a week (TWICE). In the beginning of the month, I just wasn’t motivated to blog and I needed a little break, but by the end of the month, when I was ready to get back into it, I didn’t have time. Hopefully December will be better!

I took part in two Top Ten Tuesdays:

  1. TV Shows I Want to Read as Books
  2. Books I’m Thankful For

I also had two discussion posts! I talked about the need for diversity in entertainment and the seven writing styles of YA. I got a ton of positive feedback for the second one–thank you to everyone who liked and commented! It meant a lot. 🙂

I also threw out some random thoughts about Thanksgiving and took part in the first Guest of the Month Club.

In Reading and Reviewing

I only read five books this month (and one was for school). *cries* I should have done a ton of reading over break but instead I did other things and ended up reading NOTHING. Seriously, I didn’t open a book for a week. It was weird.

Anyway, here are the books I read (links to reviews if they exist)

  1. The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
  2. The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness
  3. Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson
  4. Hello, Goodbye, and Everything In Between by Jennifer E. Smith
  5. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald (for school)

In Writing


November was BAD for me for writing. I added 312 words to my WIP. That’s IT. (*sobbing*) And I only published one poem, A Moment of Silence.

Okay, so November was rough for me. But I had a pretty good time overall (in all that time I wasn’t reading/writing/blogging). I have big plans for December.

How was November for you guys? What are your plans for December?

  1. Sorry November wasn’t as productive as you would have liked. I’d be thrilled with 13 blog posts; I can barely eke out two a week! In November, I read eight books–to get in the last one, Delirium, before the end of the month I was furiously reading until 11:45 on November 30th. The wacky things we book lovers do.


    • Thanks–and lol, that sounds exciting! It frustrates me when I split a book between two different months, but I can’t really do anything about it usually.
      I used to only have one to two blog posts a month, but recently I’d been able to step it up, so it was a let down to lose than. Then again, school was pretty crazy, so I’m not beating myself up too much. 🙂 Happy reading!
